A Ham sandwich at Ham House

So where today? I was unsure whether to go to Barnes or Marble Hill House, as both were in the same direction I didn't need to make a descision.

I was heading along the M25 when I notice a Rabbit running along the verge!

So decision time and I headed to Marble Hill House, unfortunately I missed my turning! I saw a sign for Ham House so I thought I'd not bother turning around and go there instead.

Trish had mentioned she may go there so I rang to check. She said she'd be 20 minutes so I had time to read a 100 pages while I waited ROTFLMAO!!

So lunch! A rather sensible suggestion by yours truly to share a pack of Ham sandwiches (rather excellent I might add) and we cut the carrot cake and coffee and walnut cake in two (equally excellent!!)

and some odds and ends

I ought to add I'm usually rather derisory in my comments about London but the area around Ham House, Ham and Petersham is rather lovely.

What a place, WOW! I love that urn. I'm sure you knew I would, lol. The paintings are just marvelous! Imagine living there. I could be content shuffling around there, lol. I could do with a couple of those statues as well.

Lovely as always. Whenever I see your manor house pics I always have the tune from "Antiques Roadshow" going through my head for some reason. (The English version, obviously, as the US version's music is quite hokey)

Very impressive house and garden, Pete. Great photos as always especially like the flower pictures.
