Somewhere Deep in Connecticut.

With a pub lunch (scrumptious English food with lashings of tea).

A long drive back to the House with a view from the back of the car, all sleepy, listening to The BBC World Service.

And there’s a DOG!

Downstairs, we can hear the sounds of jw/2 baking (with jw/1 being sous chef) which means there will be Hot Cross Buns for tea…..

We brought Celia Imrie with us.

Sadly only in book form.

Because this is Very much the sort of place we know she’d Adore, darlings.

UPDATE!

We all gathered on the lovely sofas to browse some UK TV choices (teamgloria having missed Loads of it since 2001) and watched an episode of kingdom with Stephen Fry AND Celia Imrie

Guess what?

Celia’s character is called…….Gloria.

You couldn’t make our life up ;)

YUM!

jw/2’s genius take on a Delia recipe.

Oh. And a delicious walking-the-dog-sunset-moment…..

Very Grateful.

This is your clandestine columnist in Connecticut for the day and night (and toast, coffee and commuter train to grand central station signing off (it’s very 1940s radio announcer up here, can you tell, darlings?

Thank you to jw/1 and jw/2 for a divine Respite in the Country…..

      Gosh!

      We are So embarrassed. We didn’t check the packing slip and just assumed we’d been shopping in our sleep (because we’ve ordered Rather a Lot of books recently ;)

      Thank you darling man!

do say something - do :-)
