WORDSWORTH HOUSE 2/5
Maureen had her hip operation yesterday afternoon and as of yesterday evening the nursing staff told me all went very well, she was eating a meal at the time, and seemed in fine fettle. Thanks for all your kind thoughts, I will print them all off and take them with me when I visit this afternoon.
Whilst it cannot be ascertained for certain just how Wordsworth House in Cockermouth was actually furnished during the time William grew up there the National Trust have spent much time in researching how such a house would have looked in the 1770’s. This room is the Common Parlour and from here Mrs.Wordsworth might well have organised the few staff she had to ensure smooth running of the household, and perhaps even used it as a refuge from her five children!
