The week began with a party on Saturday, enjoyed by us, and our friends. Lots of fun, dancing, a fabulous rum punch and some vodka soaked jelly babies and a 4am finish.

The week finished with a visit to Killerton House a National Trust property near Exeter. Amazing blue skies for October.
Lovely house, small and liveable. I could actually imagine us living in it.
Lovely front door and hallway

Great Christmas table.
The house makes its own cider and has 50 acres of apple orchards. At this time of year, they pick the apples for next years cider, with an annual festival taking place (in two weeks time) to celebrate this years cider making.
We spent a good hour in the sunshine picking apples, we even got to sample the apple juice (not the alcoholic type)
Next years cider
After a really enjoyable Sunday, we came home and joined the National Trust, and Mabel announced that when she grows up she wants to be a farmer!
