Hi Jackie

Just to say we have settled in very well here.

The house is unbelievable and has so many unusual paintings… it is like stepping into a by gone age. Very charming. Nothing like we have ever house sat for before.

We keep expecting afternoon tea and croquet on the lawn! I am expecting Mr Darcy to drop in at any moment :)

The deer are beautiful and very tame, they are not frightened at all.

Arthur the cat is lovely and as longs as he is constantly fed he is a happy pussycat. Atlas the tortoise likes plenty of attention and the stick insects just do their own thing.

It’s a joy to be here…. 3 days is just not enough time to take in the beautiful surroundings.

Thank you
