On Friday night my younger brother flew in for a 2 night stay from China, before jetting off again to Chile. We only see each other a few times a year so it was lovely to be able to have him as our first guest in the house. We invited Sion's sister over and used our Raclette for the first time. This is a Dutch way of entertaining, that involves grilling a variety of bite-sized pieces of meat on a hot indoor grill. You serve them with salads and grilled vegetables and its not unusual to still be cooking morsels two hours after you started!

On Sunday I enjoyed pottering around for the afternoon, tidying and rearranging things. A tired bunch of tulips was about to be added to the compost heap before I noticed that despite the limpness of their stems they still looked beautiful, so I took a few quick snaps...
The best thing of all though is that this is only going to be a three day working week for us. On Thursday we are heading to Warwickshire for a 2 night stay in a country hotel four poster bedroom. While it is tempting to spend the 2 days lounging around, pretending to be lady of the manor, we should probably try to visit a few towns and attractions. We will be staying near Coventry so if you have any suggestions for what we could do, please leave a comment.
