Good morning lovely people I hope I find you well as it is Friday time for
So what have we been up to so last Friday I spent some time typing up some information for my Mum, I then managed to print it off and take it over to her, it was nice to be able to get this little task done as my Mum asked me a while ago.
Last week marked the reopening of Chatsworth house and our first visit of the year, whilst we didn't have to wear masks around the house we did need them for our exit as the last room leads directly into the shop.
I've never been in Chatsworth when it has been so quiet, they are only letting 37 people in every 15 minutes (which when you bear in mind a busy Chatsworth at Christmas event day they can see 6000 people just tells you how very quiet it was.
I love the hare bell in the middle courtyard
As usual blogger has put these photos in whatever order it fancies, so first up a sign of the times me and hubby and our facemasks made by said 19 year old's GF, they worked really well and are really comfortable to wear.
The house looked beautiful
The dining room was beautifully laid out
We noticed extra details this time, maybe because we weren't rushed but also because I think they had lit rooms slightly differently
The painted hall was so very beautiful and very very empty
I liked the display of ceramics
The cascade was lovely, they have been running it for a reduced amount of time because it is gravity fed and the lake above Chatsworth has low water levels currently (although looking at those black clouds in the photo, we were slightly confused as you would have thought we'd had enough rain).
The inner courtyard detail is stunning
The horse sculpture is still beautiful
We spotted a lost teddy (hope he found his way home)
The path to the rose garden, which is currently devoid of roses had some gorgeous planting.
The library is beautiful, all those books to read.
I loved the shot through the window of the emperor garden
The new wall in the arcadia part of the garden
Shot of hubby near the blue bridge
and one of us without the masks on.
Other gratefuls this week, hubby buying me these beautiful flowers and some chocolate after a partiularly trying day at work.
The flowers are stunning
and my new cleaning slippers, I love to steam my floors but I hate that they can end up dull afterwards because of the water drying on the surface, my slippers made the difference and I had lovely shiny floors as a result
And that my lovely people is my week, I hope you've had a good week too, if you fancy joining in pop back and link up and we can come and visit, enjoy it whilst you can because apparently the legacy version of blogger is going to disappear which means I'm going to struggle to put Mr Linky on as I can't get the HTML coding to work, hey ho, we shall keep going and hope blogger sort the issues.
