A lovely Sunday stroll

Went for a lovely walk today along the Cuckoo Trail. We drove down to Hailsham and set off down the trail towards Polegate, 3 miles away. So a there and back walk would be a goodly amount of 6 miles, just right. Only we went the wrong way and were actually headed back...

Prolonged periods of bottom sitting

The last two days have consisted of prolonged periods of bottom sitting. Yesterday, we went to Mottisfont Abbey. It took three hours on the coach each way. My poor bottom was fed up with being sat on by the time we got back. The picture is of the cellarium. The cellar...

No doors or windows, and not much food either today

Late nights, coming crops and what to put in next

It was a very late night for early to bedders like me, who also like football. I was up until the small hours watching England play their first match in the World Cup. It was as tortous as I thought it would be, and I’ve been drooping around all day as a result...
