Don't you just love those chubby legs!
During the house move, I took the older two grandchildren to the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum in West Sussex while their parents attempted to unpack after the departure of the removal company. We chose one of the wettest days this year but enjoyed such a fun day out. They were really interested in learning about historical rural life and quite fascinated by the Victorian Schoolhouse.
This building was originally a cart shed that was converted to a school for 'six poor children' in the village of West Wittering in around 1851. My six year old granddaughter wanted to know what happened to the children who were taught there. I could only say that they probably felt very fortunate to be able to receive an education and being small in number, would have had their teacher's undivided attention. One can only hope that they went on to achieve great things. My grandson, aged 4, wanted to know where the computers were!
Later on this week, I shall post some before and after photographs of my new abode, so do pop back for a visit on Friday.
And thank you for all my welcome back to blog-land messages. I really appreciate them. Bye for now.
