As the wall goes up, apparently so does the dog…
Agnes has been helping in the garden… laying bricks apparently!
It’s all go at the Money Box this morning.
I have now embarked on what I’m calling Operation Pickwick and have started Phase One of the Mr Pickwick Diet.
We’ve started casually looking for our next project… gluttons for punishment I think!
With the outside underway this week, paving delivering for the tiny courtyard and the wall finally being rebuilt a year after we demolished it, we’ve been to look at a couple of interesting properties…
We looked at a place last night which we were both excited about. We’re going to make an offer but are being realistic as we would need to sell everything in order to buy it.
Still, it would be a great project and we both felt it would be one for us…
On Sunday we went to drop off the French car in Enfield. The City of Westminster wasn’t very friendly to foreigners so it was time to move the car. We had got one parking ticket, we didn’t want any more!
We decided to stop on the way at Forty Hall, a lovely stately home in North London built in the 1620s where the remains of Elsyng Palace, Henry V111’s old stomping ground were found. wikipedia.org/wiki/Elsyng_Palace
In the walled garden, a memorial bench to the mother of Letad stands under a beautiful magnolia tree. It was very moving as it was the first time Agnes and I had been.

Of course England in April is a rather unpredictable place. April showers indeed. Before long it was hailing and we were standing under a tree…
And then it was sunny and we were walking through fields of lambs…
After a lovely walk where the Little Dog played and ran with abandon, we ended up in Winchmore Hill having a very nice lunch in a pub.
An unexpected Sunday!
Hello Spring? Hello?
