Back from holiday and sharing a few views from the village where we stayed in Somerset for starters.
A good spot for a base and everything satisfactory and enjoyable except for the fact that I was in pretty constant pain from my tooth extraction for 5 days. Apart from the cavity there was an opening where a root had travelled under the adjoining tooth and I could not chew food properly for most of that time.
I have never drunk so much soup in my life.
Add to this a dose of tonsillitis so I was not feeling my best.
I did not let it stop us visiting all the places we had scheduled but I was not the happiest bunny on the planet!
Once home I realised that I expected holidays to be perfect, consequently the disappointment, when in reality they are just a part of life and all that life entails.
We stayed in this 17th century village school that had been converted into a family home
(Will take you inside in the next post)
The owners also owned a house in France and lived there during the summer months while renting out this home and lived here in the winter months while renting out their home in France.
A logistical nightmare I would think!
The local parish church was opposite
This cottage next door was home to the winner of the BBC 'gardener of the year' twice and also 'gardener of the decade'
Looking out diagonally across the lane
and up the lane towards our place on the left
The local country Inn just around the corner
where the food was delicious and varied
I did manage a delicious Lemon Sole which was easy to eat but hated having to mash the vegetables
On our next visit a Moussaka without the accompanying Greek salad was manageable even if it did take a long time
At least I could buy newly laid eggs here which were easy to eat.
A very small village where the residents were very friendly and helpful
