Two months down in 2020 already, which means March is here and spring!
We’ve had so much wind and rain this last month: I can’t imagine how those families are living with flooding or the immediate likelihood of it. Having experienced a flash flood whilst pregnant over 30 years ago, to live with that fear and reality must be heartbreaking.
We had a few days away last week staying Royal Tunbridge Wells and visiting Hever Castle and Charles Darwin’s home. Both very different but enjoyable. Hever is so pretty with the Italian Gardens put in by the Astor family, beautiful, even in February.
Darwin’s house definitely felt like a family home, but it was surreal to walk in the footsteps of him and I was overwhelmed by it and learnt a lot about the man and his family.
It’s always good to getaway and recharge the batteries. We started a list of places to travel to: some realistically achievable, others a pipe dream. Kevin put it that we are assembling a squad from which we will pick a team!
It was lovely to get home and whilst we were away Georgina hosted her first dinner party for her girlfriends.
This last month we have entertained, watched some great and not so great rugby, and experienced frustrations along the way.
Our sofa was delivered on Friday and with a few tweaks the room is almost complete!
Next month is full of trips and events and hopefully less rain!
