Sunday ramble – cricket & desk assembly

Good Morning, I write to you beyond early his morning whilst I hope you are still in the Land of Nod.  The reason for this is that Bertie has his first ever ‘proper cricket match’ later and he and his teammates have to report at Chard CC at 9.30am to play against them in the […]

Asparagus & hair cut!

Good Morning. I hope you are in fine fettle and that the sun is shining as much as it is here in Somerset. I am sat at my desk writing to you whilst poor old Nancy is sat behind me at another desk doing hard core physics revision. It’s a lonely road for the poor […]

Hair cut & Asparagus Box

Good Morning.  I hope you are in fine fettle and that the sun is shining as much as it is here in Somerset.  I am sat at my desk writing to you whilst poor old Nancy is sat behind me at another desk doing hard core physics revision.  It’s a lonely road for the poor girl […]

Sunday Ramble – Willy Wonka & Chainsaws

Good Morning, I write to you from my kitchen table on what is a frosty but lovely morning here in Somerset.  The day started with the most exciting news … I was in a deep slumber (a state I have to admit to being jolly keen on) and found myself being shaken awake in what […]

Sunday Ramble – Golfing, nails & free delivery

Good Morning from Pattisson Towers, where I am at the end of what has been a glorious week off.  A lot of cricket has been played and grass cutting carried out as well as managing to escape to play not one, but two rounds of golf.  The first of these was worryingly good by my […]

Sunday ramble – caps, Easter orders & thank you!

Good Morning from a jolly blustery Smokery.  I write to you this morning through the pain of a significant head injury.  As with most injuries that I pick up there is a direct connection with one of the ‘loons’ in this instance it is Stan(6) who, as is his way at present, decided that he and […]

Sunday ramble, Easter orders, cobwebs & hair bands!

As I write to you this morning from the kitchen table of Pattisson Towers four things appear to be occupying my as ever over full and inadequate brain.  The first of these, and probably the only one of any real importance, is that believe it or not two weeks today is Easter Sunday and from […]

Mother’s Day at Pattisson towers

Good Morning from Pattisson Towers which is a hive of activity and helpfulness today!   It is of course Mothering Sunday and that basically means that ‘The Loons’ were read the riot act last night explaining that Mrs P should not be allowed to do a single thing today other than eat, drink, read her […]

Pattisson academy for academic excellence final awards!

Good Morning from a gloriously cold and frosty Somerset.   Breakfast at the Pattisson table this morning felt a somewhat foreign affair and yet one that had significant amounts of deja but mixed in.  The reason for this was that the main topic of conversation was who wanted what in their packed lunch for school […]

Sunday ramble – cricket, rugby & new March box

Greetings from what is the most glorious morning here in Somerset. I hope you are blessed with the same deep blue sky and a bit of genuinely warm sun on your back. It is much much needed here after a fitful night wrestling with my anxieties that were brought to a crescendo late yesterday afternoon. […]
