I keep my blog as a personal record of what I'm up to, which might be seen as working towards "An elegant sufficiency, content, retirement, rural quiet, friendship, books, ease and alternate labour, useful life"

I'm certainly not there yet.  There is quite some way to go!

37 years


An email inviting us to take advantage of some special opening offers at Michael Caine’s new hotel/restaurant venture in Devon arrived just as we were wondering how to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary.

We booked!




So, with just a day to do a quick turnaround, we shrugged off our Russian vibe and headed for Devon.




Yet again, the sun shone on us and we spent a lovely day doing not very much.  Well, eating and drinking don’t count, to they?




A “gin tray” is included in each room, along with the usual tea and coffee.  How civilised!  Having said that, those bottles remained unopened, surprisingly.




We were too busy drinking champagne Winking smile

(well, we have our limits!)
