What else has been happening this week:

So we have just had the final week of the Summer Holidays. I can’t believe that this time has come! My son is excited to start school though which is good. 

For our final week we have been fairly busy. On Bank Holiday Monday we went to Chartwell, the home of Winston Churchill, which was lovely. Such a beautiful house with great views! Tuesday we had a play date with one of my son’s new class mates which was nice, Wednesday we drove to Deal for a pub lunch and an outside paddling pool. It was so windy and the sea was very rough so we didn’t even contemplate going in! We also went to an Ice Cream Parlour and a walk along the pier. My partner went back to work on Thursday (he is a teacher so goes back a couple of days before the students) whilst my son and I had a quiet day that included a short walk to the library. On Friday we went to a 45 minute session to get to know the classroom that he will be in from Monday (!!) then went into Cranbrook for another library visit, a play in the playground and a milkshake. Saturday we went to a family BBQ and Sunday we had a quiet day sorting out school clothes!

      Thank you 🙂 Yay! I do the same with other blogs! It is lovely to see other parts of the world. I am really lucky where I am in the UK. I am an hours train ride from London, an hours ride away from the coast and I am surrounded by countryside and country houses.

    I never thought about Churchill’s home being a place one could visit! I looked at your pictures and Googled. It seems they were considering allowing the public to, finally, be allowed to see Churchill’s private bedroom. Did you see that on your tour? And what about the kitchen? I’m always interested in seeing vintage kitchens and butler’s pantries on these kind of historical home tours but for some reason they are often off limits! Drives me crazy.

    That ice cream!!!!!

      Yeah. Courtesy of his wife leaving it to the National Trust 😊 I love the National Trust! And I am so lucky to live near so many properties. We didn’t get to see the bedroom. A guide said that his wife didn’t want to allow it when the house was handed over.

      We did see the kitchen. I love a kitchen too. There were a few bits out and about and you could see the crockery. One of the best kitchens I’ve seen is Lanhydrock House in Cornwall. I went there on a school trip. It was huge and had lots of bits out!

      Honestly! I felt a bit sick by the end…
