Aftyer a quiet day in yesterday, I was feeling unwell and it was a miserable, rainy day we got up early and went to Sudbury. I had bought a chair on Ebay that needed collecting from Derby so we thought we'd make a day of it and see what the National Trust had to offer. It was lovely to have a bit of sunshine for a change too. Sudbury Hall was very imposing as we came out of the car park and through the entrance. Very symmetrical too, which I always love to see! When I was little I loved drawing houses, it was the only thing I could draw and they were always perfectly symmetrical. So as an adult I love seeing these type of houses!
The hall itself wasn't open today so we didn't get chance to go in, only look around the outside. Its very popular and it was very busy, which is something you really can't get used to as home educators. We like things when there quiet now, how selfish of us! But its daddy's week off and it was lovely to have him with us for a change!
First up in the musuem was the Victorian street. The girls found some wooden hula hoops, which were very tricky to use and very noisy in comparison to their plastic ones at home.
Love this! What a strange toy!
We managed to find some vinatge Star Wars fugures for Bailey to look at!
We loved this tree, which quite frankly id the biggest tree I have ever seen. It was as tall as the house, Bailey took this photo of the tree.
Cordelia spotted this growing on one of the trees, not sure what it is though? Looked like tiny gnome hats!
(Sorry I left this post half done last night, I was so tired and it was 12 by the time I logged off and my brain had gone to mush, so thought it best to leave it and finish it this morning. All done now!)
