Struggling with Technology
I seem incapable of taking even a half decent photo of QFATT. It's driving me nuts. As you may, or may not, be able to see here, I've added a bit of metal mesh to the top, small pieces, that I think may be linked in some way, maybe with wire, maybe with stitch... they look okay in real life, but in the photo, they look rather lame, somehow. Grr.
The visitors have been, and gone, and were favourably impressed by the house itself, at least, if not its standard of housekeeping (though they were too polite to say...). They did, however, have a good time, and chocolate biscuits from Germany, to boot (Anne Wigfull, please note!). We went out to the local pub for a meal, the White Horse at Longham. It is a quintessential English pub; we take all our visitors there for a meal, or at least to meet the landlord, Barry, who is an experience all by himself. It's not what he says, it's the way that he says it... but he's lovely, really. Or so he tells us!
