We’re back home after a weekend at Dunstan Hall near Alnwick. Andrew and I did a lot of cooking; thankfully others did much of the washing up. It was good to see old friends. There were sixteen of us at Frogmarch this year.
The house was pretty old — the tower dates back to the 1300s. The house was well equipped too, with a decent modern kitchen as well as a breakfast room with an Aga. Unfortunately the Aga wasn’t running at full temperature, but we made good use of its ovens and hobs. The music room had a splendid grand piano, and Helen provided after-dinner music for us.
Beth had a lovely time playing with the other children there, Eleanor and Matthew.
There seemed to be popular support for heading back there next year.
