I was laying on my reading and watching a repeat of would I lie to you on Dave when at about 9:40 my eyes went heavy and I decided to put the book down. Next thing I know Would I lie to You is still on but the panel are different and an hour had passed!!
It was raining when I left this morning but not much. I headed to Athelhampton House as it was open at 10:30.
It was still early!! So as Kingston Lacy is just down the road and I can now take photos inside off we go.
Going around the Historic Houses of England you see hundreds of portraits of minor nobility but this one is unusual. When I first saw it years a go i was struck by the ladies personality which is absent from so many. I asked the guide about her and he asked me why that one. I explained that she appeared to have a personality and apparently she had a notorious reputation for her sexual adventures!
I had noticed a rather scrummy looking chocolate cake earlier so I headed to the cafe for a cup of tea and a slice. Well I'm on holiday!!
I'm off to the Isle of Wight tomorrow my ferry leaves at 11:25 so not so many photos tomorrow. YES OC I'LL TAKE SOME OF THE BOAT :D
Not sure about wifi access so if nothing appears you'll have to wait until Friday (when I'll be back at this hotel).
