Planning ahead

Mr and Mrs Ralph Izard by John Singleton Copley (1775)

MrM and MrsM have a free weekend ahead of them.
For the first time for years and years and years
they have no responsibilities at all.


MrsM
We could just go...somewhere...

MrM
Where?

MrsM
Herefordshire.

MrM
Why?

MrsM
I don't know...it just popped into my head...

MrM
What is there to do in Herefordshire?

MrsM
I have no idea.

MrM
There must be something to do.

MrsM
We can drink Westons cider.

MrM
Pass the phone.
I will book a hotel.

Go! - most definitely go! - it is the county that the world passes by and all the more beautiful and peaceful for that. Go to see the Mappa Mundi and the Chain Library in the cathedral in Hereford itself, the black and white house trail all around Leominster and a little further afield hop over to Hay on Wye, the town of bookshops. If ever there was a place to unwind you've hit on it - have a lovely, lovely time. Just the thing to recharge your batteries before your busy weeks ahead

Anywhere you can drink Westons has to be good, it's one of my favourite tipples! Happy weekend, enjoy all that freedom.

That's what Hugo and I like to do, just go 'somewhere', see where it takes us. Just going out for a journey in the car is an exciting prospect.
Have a wonderful time!
Love vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)

Sounds like Mr M's brain is going soft, giving in to female charm so easily.

RW said...

sounds like a lovely plan

The Coffee Lady said...

did it REALLY just 'pop' into your head?

blackbird said...

Can you feel my ENVY all the way over there?
(Boarding school, right?)

A cider swilling weekend sounds rather good.

Have a lovely carefree time.
I now have 'no responsibilities at all' but don't have the heart to go away.
I am finding hope here.
Thank you.

oh oh oh and there's a fantastic restaurant just there!!! can't remember the name, but it was our favourite treat when we used to live in Ledbury... and you can visit that gorgeous shop 'Tinsmith' in Ledbury too!!!

Go go go...

I am looking forward to those days fourteen years from now when LOML and I can have similar freedom:-)

Enjoy!

I like how Mr M's hairdo is the same color as his outfit. Sort of pigeonesque.
