Today I delight in

"the crazy duck who nested in a hanging basket managing to coral her 8 tiny chicks to the water (with a bit of human help)"

Today I despair of

"parents who inflict their own food prejudices on their (as yet insentient) children"

more delight + despair

WELCOME TO MY WORD (sic) … I am pretty sure that those who are not in the hotel business have little idea of what we do all day, or why we work such long hours. If you read my latest MUSING, it describes exactly what I did on Monday, 12 May 2014. Want my job?  

The Crown and Castle in Orford Suffolk

My husband David and I, together with long-term friend Tim Sunderland, own and run The Crown and Castle in Orford Suffolk. We have 21 bedrooms and a lively bistro, the Trinity, which serves decent, unpretentious food. Although we are officially classed as a hotel, we are actually a restaurant with rooms, our public space being very limited. (And, despite the name, definitely not a pub.) Our desire is to offer thoughtful, unstuffy service and to provide a truly relaxing, unstressed atmosphere.
