The terrace is the perfect place for breakfast - one corner catches the morning sun. Equally it's ideal for sundowners - the garden faces south-west so gets sun all day and right into the evening. Truly, it's pretty heavenly.
But, during the day, whenever I can, I grab a rug and throw myself down onto the grass. The SP joins me, of course, and we read a book, or just snooze or muse, down by the pond, hidden by the fuchsia and irises. The bliss of this place is that, although it is nearly in the centre of town, it's totally secluded and private. I suppose our neighbours could look in, if they hung out their windows at an odd angle, but it's unlikely. And the views are fabulous - over to the woods and fields on the other side of the valley.
It's not just me - Adrian has been taking his laptop out and working on the table on the lawn.
