Lovely to see a swan settled on its nest having a doze on a warm afternoon.
Inside, is a remarkable collection of Chippendale furniture built especially for the property.
Of course, after all this walking, it's compulsory to stop at the cafe
for some coffee and cake.
Despite rumours to the contrary I am writing away at my novel. I should say 'reading' away at my novel, Resolution. On very good advice I have read the whole book, out loud, preferably when no one is around to hear me! It's actually a very good way to 'hear' your mistakes, such as duplicated words, wrong tenses and 'clunky' sentences. I have also been brave enough to pass it on to two readers, who promise to come back to me with honest opinions and not just say 'nice' things. When they finally give me their assessments maybe I'll be ready to take the next step and seriously consider submitting it to a publisher. Fingers crossed.
