Losely house

Today I have lunch at Losely House in the Wisteria Tea rooms. followed by a wonder around the beautiful gardens. We did not booked onto a tour of the house this trip, but if you are going it is a great way to learn about the history of the house.

Walking in stories

We visited Chawton, near Alton, where Jane Austen lived and wrote. 

The space is amazing because you can see where the stories came from, you can image. Great place to visit and Cassandras cafe opposite was great for a big bowl of hot soup! 

   
 
Things to take from visiting a space like this, and reading about an author like this, is that anyone can write, anyone can become world famous, can inspire, you just have to do it. 

Imagination is a wonderful gift, don’t waste it!

The back off effect

Having actually got up early to take the dogs  to the seaside I got home to deal with a giant marrow I was given.

With it I made: 

  • ginger and narrow jam, 
  • ginger, orange and current cakes
  • froze the spare marrow for later

The extra flour I tried out some rough pastry. Who knew it was so easy! Get flour, frozen butter, salt, pepper and a little water. Grate frozen butter, mix it together, stick it in the fridge for half an hour, make tarts (Filled with homemade marrow chutney and goats cheese) and eat! 

Just call me Sophie Berry!
