Good weekend

Yesterday, we had a good day out at Claydon House, famous for its connection to Florence Nightingale, amongst other things (how medicine and the care of the sick has moved on since those times...) and visiting the magical windmill at Brill on the way home.

Today, a trip to Buscot for a lovely long walk around the park and Peto's water garden, and a chance to see the art collection, including works by pre-Raphaelite artists, Burne-Jones and Rossetti (and yes, we have become fans of Desperate Romantics...such good rollicking fun!)

Home in time to see England win the last Test Match and The Ashes. Result! What a great way to finish the weekend....

Oh, it's such a perfect day,
I'm glad I spent it with you.
Oh, such a perfect day,
You just keep me hanging on,
you just keep me hanging on.

Lou Reed
