Once our lovely B&B guests left after a hearty breakfast, to further their travels around the UK, - Eilis and Matt heading towards Ironbridge, and Suzette and Jim onto York - Paul and I drove off in the direction of Cotswold Reclamation, - Little Rissington, - a mind boggling world of old and new stone, and all sorts of things to inspire us with the decoration & finishing touches of Crafty Cottage! .... this is my kind of place :-) .....
|.... perhaps we should change the name to Skyfall ??!|
|I want the lions, the pillars .... I want I want ! .......|
|I just had to relax, and kneel on the nearest table :-) !|
We were supposed to be looking for stone to finish off the top of the river bank wall, undecided about things my mind couldn't help but wander away from Cotswold Stone options, and inside the Aladins cave of bits and pieces! - not too much Arts and Crafts it has to be said, - but nevertheless I did enjoy browsing around the different bits and pieces they had on offer.
Content with having just had a look around, we decided to head off back to Chipping Campden, - to The Eight Bells for a sandwich and a pint! ..... when we left the pub, the day was still glorious so we decided to head off to Dovers Hill a week ahead of the Cotswold Olympicks http://www.olimpickgames.co.uk/ .
It was a bit windy on top of the hill but it was a nice brisk walk mingling with the sheep !
Another great day,
Hopefully work continuing on the Cottage later this week.
Will keep you posted !
