|A kissable piggie|
The house itself was semi-closed to visitors. That is, the rooms upstairs were not available to visit, but you could still stroll through the ground floor and admire the beautiful kitchen, my favourite place in the manor farm. Despite the size, it looks very cozy and feels warm and welcoming, I could just see myself cooking there, to my heart's content.
The pantry shelves looked like paintings by Giorgio Morandi, approaching the zen of tranquility and serenity in the simple arrangement of pots, pans and bottles.
The window boasted a beautiful display of the late October produce from the garden.
My guys were keen to visit their favourite play area, with the slides, swings and zip wire.
Sasha was almost ecstatic on the swing, closing his eyes as if trying to capture the moment of bliss in his memory and store it for months to come, as the play area will be closed until late March.
We climbed the trees.
Some of us were not sure climbing up was such a good idea after all.
The day was sunny and tranquil, who would have thought there were storms earlier in the week.
Zip wire, we'll miss you.
And even I was caught in the jolliness of the moment, balancing on the tree trunk.
Good bye, Cogges, see you next spring!
