I hope everyone is well.
I thought it was time for another This and That Thursday because I have been quite busy going on adventures recently.
Just recently I went to Norfolk where my best friend lives to surprise her for her birthday. The surprise went really well and we had a really great time. We ate some lovely food and visited a lovely National Trust property called Felbrigg Hall. It was a wonderful weekend away and it was so good to spend time with friends.
My husband and myself went to try afternoon tea at our local Golf club. We had never been before but thought as it was the holidays we would treat ourselves. We really enjoyed it and have also been for dinner there as well.
Powis Castle is a bit of a distance for us but we had a rare Sunday off together so we thought we would set off earlier and go to a National Trust place further afield. We enjoyed the castle so much that we went around twice and this also helped us avoid the rain.
We are also members of the English Heritage but we haven’t used our membership this year so we decided to remedy the situation and visit Witley Court. I love Witley Court but I do find it depressing. The house was clearly a gorgeous house and would have been wonderful to see before it was burned down. However, walking around the ruins you get the sense of the grandeur but also sadness that so little remains.
Wightwick Manor is one of my favourite National Trust places and one that is very local to us. I love the design of Wightwick and the fact that in comparison to most National Trust properties it is relatively new. The house is so eccentric and always fills me full of wonder. It is also has some beautiful artwork in and a very nice library.
So there are some of my adventures. I am going on another adventure tomorrow all being well so I am hoping it doesn’t rain.
What adventures have you been on recently?

I love Witley House. I think it’s a gorgeous ruin and love to just wander around the empty rooms. Was the fountain working? It’s brilliant when it does but I know it only works at certain times.

Yes the fountain was working they were setting it off every hour which was lovely. I wish they would get the other fountain working as that has such pretty statues as well.
