The wanderer returns

Hello All!

Well, we're back after a lovely break in Sussex.  For once, the week was a lovely long one - probably because we jammed packed so much in (as always).  Unfortunately, we're not the sort to sit, relax and lounge on a beach all day.  Normally, we return feeling we need another holiday!

Anyway, we stayed in a lovely converted barn at a place called Vines Cross, with only a couple of neighbours.  Views were wonderful and we woke listening to a cuckoo and watching swallows dart between barns - all very Enid Blyton!  Here's a little snapshot of our barn.

Days were spent at many National Trust properties, time at the beach, lots of walking following Pooh Bear's stomping ground in Ashdown Forest (my favourite part of the holiday), and of course a holiday wouldn't be a holiday without some thrifting and a car boot sale or two!  Those parts, I'll save for my next post.

For now, here's a little snapshot of our week.  Only 1 wet day out of 7 so we can't complain.

Right on with work today - self-employment and holidays just don't mix!  Hopefully I'll get a chance to pop by everyone's blogs later, oh and hello to my new followers!  See you during the week.
