First an update of page 4 of my Sajou booklet. As you can see it's coming along nicely and it won't be too long until it's done. The scissors were purchased on eBay and I have shown these before but I can't find the post at present. They are tiny, measuring 2½" and are engraved ER and dated 1953 so I assume they were released for the Queen's Coronation in that year.
During the week we took a trip to a garden centre near Canterbury and instead of coming home via the main road we drove through the countryside.We passed some wonderful old houses. This house 'The Old Rectory' is in Elmstone - a very tiny hamlet between Canterbury and Deal.
It has a small pond and the gardens were beautiful.
It reminds me of a Jane Austen type house - what do you think?
And literally just around the corner stands 'The Old Vicarage'. I wonder why there are two such houses - an old rectory and an old vicarage - so close to each other?
I wonder which house I would choose if I were lucky enough to be able to afford to buy one? Which one would you choose and why?
