I woke ridiculously early. It was cold and there had been a heavy frost so I nipped downside made a cuppa turned on the heating and went back to bed. It was lovely and warm!
But the sun was out and the sky was blue so eventually I headed out.
Now I should have been out birding as I haven't been to Rye Meads in AGES but the National Trust have a special scone for Christmas throughout the East of England region and there is a shop I wanted to visit so off to Ickworth!
They had a Christmas Event on so lots of ankle biters about!
And scone time! It was nice and I'll have to try some at other sites (quality control you understand), I will say that the tea hasn't been hot enough both times I've been there. I did comment to the chap who cleared my table.
I wandered back via Baythorne Hall...... looks like a nice wine shop :)
This may not be my last visit this year to Ickworth! It's open boxing day and if the weather is good!!
