I'm Off To Krakow

krakow
This morning I am off to Krakow in Poland. It's a friend's birthday and 40 of us from the surrounding villages and hamlets are flying over there for 3 days of frivolity.
Whilst I am gone you can stay at my cottage and keep an eye on the builders. There's plenty to do.

Take a stroll down to the nearest village and you will pass beautiful meadows full of wild flowers.

Take a look at the baby alpacas that just love to have their photos taken.

Stop at the Tea Rooms, they even have a proper coffee machine and the owner bakes cakes to die for.

If you have forgotten your purse then take a drink from the gorgeous Victorian Fountain.

Take your drink over to the village green and sit a while. There's picnic tables for your use.

Cross the little bridge on the green and take a walk along the riverside.
pantone coffee mugs
Please don't forget to stoke up the builders with plenty of tea - milk and one sugar for all please.

I adore your neck of the woods Di, you lucky girl, alpacas an all!

Yes, we'll keep our eye on the "guys" for you. We'll crank the fast music and maybe set the coffee bar right inside for them!

Have fun in Poland. We'll miss you. Will you please take some photos for us?
