Chalke Valley and Avoncroft


Long drive very early in the morning, ending up in winding country roads ending up in a dirt track and a field in the middle of nowhere! Large amount of people for such an out of the way place. No signal on the phone so didn’t think we would find anyone – met Sarah-Jane by accident at the entrance and left Phil to go and get her dressed – found the rest of the crew, then when we went back couldn’t find Phil! He had been taken away to be used as a prop in a talk. Poured with rain during the day several times – sheltered with a very flash car at one point! Went back to Lee and Lennies and was introduced to Ruby the Rat. Next day to Avoncroft for a day with photographers,  brilliant day with the Raggeds.  Lovely surprise to see Simon Tierney, and make new friends with Nadine & Lee. Then to top the day off a visit to the friend who has been in my life the longest – Felicity & her Patrick Turner. Thanks for the dinner!
