Weekend with Roger, Jane and Oliver – Saturday

We left ours around 10.30 and arrived at theirs just after 12.

After a light lunch of sandwiches and soft drinks, we set off for Hatfield House. It’s one we’ve never actually been to, and it was definitely worth the short drive. The place is massive, and unusually, these days, in private hands.

Hatfield House

We had a good look around the house which was packed with tapestries, paintings and gorgeous ceilings. Unfortunately, they don’t allow photographs nor video inside the house, so nothing to show here – but if you like old houses, this is a must!
We took a break at the restaurant on-site and tucked into tea, cookies and cake. It was a scorching hot day so we sat outside listening to a solo saxophonist – perfect summer weather in SEPTEMBER!!!

We headed back and settled in the garden for a couple of hours. I spent time drinking beer, practising my light sabre skills and challenging Oliver with a game similar to Connect4.

We chilled-out in the evening watching the DVD: Clash of the Titans and fell into bed around 10.45pm. It’s a lazy day planned for tomorrow.
