A Day Out in Kelmscott

Despite the promise of rain and snow and generally a grim day all-round, this morning was pleasant; just a little on the chilly side.

We braved the wrath of the children and with not too much shouting, coerced them into a trip to Kelmscott Manor for the day to be indoctrinated in the history surrounding William Morris.

After a charming stroll through the village, the trip around the Manor was very pleasant.  The children were kept surprisingly entertained by a questionnaire supplied by one of the volunteers at the Manor; she obviously recognised three children who were well practised at being unruly!

After an excellent pub lunch (Alex insisted 'The Plough' must be pronounced 'The Pluff'), it rained as promised.
