Yes there has been of freaky stuff round here, the Sainted One is on the “War Path” again off I go happy as a lark to have dinner with my wonderful Norwegian friend at Carrafini, the most timelessly wonderful Italian restaurant in London the SO happy with his favourite TV dinner I returned in the best of spirits …… But there was a festering miasma of panic in the house “You took the TV control out to dinner with you” the SO bellowed from halfway down the stairs. I protested innocence, the bag was snatched and tipped out, there were no condoms or drugs of course, and definitely no TV control.

The next day I was punished for a crime I did not commit….. the car boot was shut on my head by the hand on the accuser. Horrified onlookers gathered as I reeled into the garden wall ….” you did it to yourself”.. I heard down a tunnel of head pain. Then the slamming of the front door.

The family who have lived in it for all their married life are sensitive custodians and welcome us with Grace. They must have read Yeats wonderful poem “I will spread my cloths under your feet, tread softly because you tread on my dreams”… this is a house that defines anyone who lives in it and people who came there when we lived in it all talk about it some saying, it was the Happiest time in their lives.
Happiness is also family successes Georgiana my eldest grandchild on the cover of Tatler in one of her stunning bathing suits , take a look on my previous post. That sent my viewings sky high.
