Croome

[These events took place and this entry was written pre-lockdown 3.0.]

The last time we went to Croome, Humuhumu was a toddler and Keiki slept through the whole thing in his sling. The grounds are stunning - it’s a Capability Brown extravaganza, no expense was spared, not even that of moving an entire village to improve a view - and they loved it. I’m still kicking myself for not bringing the dSLR but comfort myself in the knowledge that we’ll definitely be back.

The snowdrops were out in late December. That was a bit of a shock.

Humuhumu built a tiny snowman and left him on the steps.

Those tiny specks in the middle distance are my children.
