So, after enduring the holiday venue from hell for three nights, we just upped and left on Tuesday morning. We’d given the management a list of 21 issues including the key ones of an uncomfortable mattress and broken armchair backs and no effort was made to resolve them. After an incident where the toilet wouldn’t flush, D announced he wasn’t having a nice time. As I wasn’t either, we had a quick look online and found a fab 5 star B&B just outside of Exeter, phoned them, booked in and just moved. We stayed at The Old Rectory in Clyst Honiton, just outside Exeter. It was wonderful and such a treat after the previous nights. We also spent loads of time in Exeter, visiting the Cathedral and going on a tour of Medieval Exeter with a tour guide provided by the city council. Will post pictures in another post.
Although we really enjoyed our last few days, after a fab meal at The Jack in the Green at Rockbeare (fab village name!) last night we decided it was time to go home. So we’re now ensconced in our little pad, everything is comfy and cosy and D has the telly on!
I didn’t do as much knitting as I would have liked, though I am halfway up the second sleeve of my godson’s Christmas jumper:
I’m not super chuffed with the way the increases show but I have followed the pattern exactly. Luckily they’ll be under the arm.
