Today we decided to take advantage of the free entry to National Trust properties.
We decided to go to Osterley Park
12 miles from London.We set off this morning,we took 2 bins full of cans to put in the recycling machines at Tesco Osterley
then went to the park.Its a magnificent house with beautiful gardens.
The new Batman film was filmed at the house and if anyone watched Great Expectations at Christmas, the front of the house was used (scene where Estella sees Drummle abusing his horse, and she runs down the steps to stop him)
It was a beautiful house and you wouldn't believe where you actually were.
Managed to drop ironing off and indoors before the heavens opened.
Chicken was put in the slow cooker this morning for tonight's dinner,before my light bulb moment we we would have had a cream tea at the house and then found a pub on the way home for a meal, now we took a snack and drink with us for a lovely frugal day.
