Monday - Can't believe it's our last whole day here, yet I feel like we've been away from home for yonks and yonks! Catherine's lovely friend Catherine drove us to Chawton to Jane Austen's home and the home of her family, was fab although I wasn't feeling so great, in a bit of a cloud, just a bit tired.

Woke up this morning to lovely sunshine and in the cutest cottage in the world, snug in my bed! Up bright and breezy as usual, lovely breakfast, then a lovely time with Catherine whilst we waited for Melanie to join us around midday from Chandlers Ford where she had been visiting an old friend of hers. We then headed to Hartley Wintney to have a mouch round the quaint little shops, an organic health shop (right up my street, came here last time I visited Catherine), a charity shop and then we had a lovely lunch, mine was a Mediterranean roasted veg sarnie on ciabatta with rocket, so yummy, going to make that back home! in this great cafe. The cafe was in this courtyard behind an this amazing shop filled with such lovely things, nick ... read more
