A Super Sunday!

DSC04242DSC04243During the Summer I had a Big Birthday and the Boys Godparents bought DH and I a day out with lunch to here, Blenheim Palace, home to the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough and Winston Churchill’s family.

Despite the day being quite cold and grey the place was extremely busy but we managed to get round and see everything.

DH and I had a lovely Sunday Lunch before we left and managed to get back in time to take Youngest to swimming club.  He and Eldest had been out Christmas shopping!

    What a wonderful way to spend the day!!! I was amazed by all the gold and silver items when I was in England! By the time we got the the V&A museum, we just blew by all the gorgeous silver displayed…total overload to the point where it became “meh”! I know I would certainly HATE to have to polish all of it!!!
