We went off to Herstmonceux Castle and Gardens. Needless to say the castle was shut but we had a lot of time around all the gardens and the woods. We tried to stay in the shade a lot of the time, for Ellie’s sake and gave her plenty of water.

I have to say we really weren’t impressed with the gardens. We were even told as we entered that the rose garden was beautiful. Quite honestly my roses are more impressive! A lot of them at Herstmonceux didn’t even have any perfume.

It was very hot and humid and we were exhausted by the time we arrived back at the lodge. We opened all the doors and windows and it cooled down straight away.

It’s so nice to sit on the terrace with football in between! Ellie sits fascinated by the badgers and rabbits wandering around.
