[photopress:IMG_0273.jpg,thumb,alignleft]Well, after a big weekend of being out to lunch on both Saturday and Sunday – Sunday night saw the entire Barker household in bed under the duvets by 10 past 8 ! Adults included! So, apologies for not updating Sunday night!
[photopress:IMG_0272_1.jpg,thumb,alignright]Marg and Geoff spent a great 10 days touring through Florence and Rome. Grazie Mille to David and Karim for taking care of them in Bella Roma!
Miss Lottie had a busy social week – with Baby group on Monday and Friday and making new friends at a new postnatal group on Tuesday. Her new playmates are Emily (7 weeks) Max (9 weeks) Henry (13 weeks) and William (also 9 weeks). Hi to their mums – Maria, Lorna, Janine and Vicky!
[photopress:img_0227.jpg,thumb,alignleft]We had a great weekend out and about with Marg and Geoff. We met up in Bibury with an old friend from Darwin – Lenore – for a lovely lunch.
Then Sunday saw us up at 630am – to head to Pat’s (Dave’s cousin) and to mass at Downside Abbey – where Pat’s son when to school. She had booked us into an amzing old manor house, [photopress:img_1891.jpg,thumb,alignright] Ston Easton Hotel. As we drove down the drive we all thought that we will need our bank manager to pay for the meal, out the front of the house was a Ferrari and Bentley which made us feel even more worried.
[photopress:img_0295.jpg,thumb,alignleft]But to our pleasant surprise they actually served a fantastic three course ‘luncheon’ for £23 a head! So with that we ordered and enjoyed the silver service with drinks in the drawing room and coffee’s in the lounge! All very posh – so Lottie was on her best behaviour! She wore a new pink dress and was a great hit with our fellow luncheon diners! We can highly recommend this for a Sunday lunch the food was amazing and with two rosettes and amazing service it is very hard to beat, especially for the price.
Will keep this update short so till next week…. (actually, we head off to Scotland on Saturday – so will be the week after!) all our love to you all xxxxx
