Friends, Old And New....

My dear friend Cuckoo (Tales From Cuckoo Land) invited me to stay with her at her lovely home in Somerset for a few days back in July and I jumped at the chance.

I was more than happy to settle in the gorgeous guest room:

Cuckoo lives in the middle of nowhere and so the view is beautiful:

The view is made all the more swoonworthy by the gorgeous Airstream trailer:

Isn't it just fabulous? We spent our evenings after Cuckoos boys where in bed sat in the trailer, crafting, drinking tea and laughing our heads off!!:

The trailer has all the mod cons - I'm not jealous at all, oh no, not me....

We had lunch with Cuckoo's friend C and I swooned at C's beautiful home, here's Cuckoo posing in front of C's gorgeous blue Aga:

Look at C's beautiful pots!! Every corner was crammed with pots and tubs overflowing with lush blooms, the photo doesn't do it justice, they were truly beautiful!!

C made us a lovely lunch and we sat in the sun drinking white wine spritzer so and watching Cuckoo's children and C's grandchildren playing gleefully in her lovely garden.

Cuckoo "met" C on Instagram and when they realised they lived in the same village they became firm friends - another example of how fantastic the internet is for bringing people together.

All too soon my stay was over and I hoped back on the train and made my way home....
