What a lovely day at work I had today. Whilst in the office I did some mundane but essential admin, but perfect for a Monday, and this afternoon we were treated to afternoon tea at Cliveden House. We had proper tea cups and saucers, finger sandwiches and out of this world cakes (Katy, I did manage to squirrel away 2 eccles cakes for Mr Monda, he was very pleased about this). After tea we went for a tour, we were shown some of the hotel bedrooms - you can stay there for about £600 per night (to put this into perspective, that's more than I paid for my holiday - 6 days in Scandanavia!).
It's got a lot of history and I guess this is really what you pay for, so for a taster of Olde England it's great, and it does have some really lovely gardens you can walk around in the summer too. I wish every Monday at work was like this.
Sadly I didn't take my camera, but I've borrowed a couple of pics from google images:
Mr Monda bought me the latest issue of craft magazine, which I'm pleased to see has monsters on the front cover:
I feel like I haven't made any monsters in a while - I've been busy with other things, like this BIP - Bunny in progress:This main body of this bunny is a cream felt blanket which I washed in the machine with some brown and red felt. It's picked up some of the brown and red fibres and felted them in - initially i wasn't very happy about this but now I actually quite like it.
The BIP will have to wait a couple of days more days now though - I'm off into London tomorrow night to see the Hoosiers in concert. Check out their website, its really cool, and you can listen to some of their music whilst you do it.
