Leith Hall Re-Opens

I’m pleased to finally say that after 4 years Leith Hall has now re-opened!  Some of you may remember I did manage to visit before the closure and found it a lovely little treasure house.  Sadly, it has not been able to open until now.

Massive improvements have been made in the house, tea-room and garden and the Hall opened to the public for the first time on Friday, the main celebration happening yesterday (Sunday).

Do pop along to show your support and see all the good work that’s been done.  I’m off to see it as soon as I can – when I last saw it I was helping to pack the collection away for the imminent building works…

Londinium Calling

It was so good to get back to London for a week!

I managed to see awesome members of family and fabulous friends to catch up and check out what they had been up to (my Aunt has taken to making awesome gemstone jewellery, which I’ll share some pictures of later as I bought some of her unique pieces).

Good people, good food – caught up with one of my fabulous fellow writers from Tuscany, AND I managed lots of revisits, sightseeing and shopping!
