A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

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!

It's sparse by modern standards but very agreeable Brian. Good news about Maureen
Pleased to hear Op. went well, hope that Maureen is soon back home. I like the elegant simplicity of the furniture and the layout in this room.
I think someones pinched the laptop off the desk!!

So glad to hear that Maureen's on the mend Brian. That's one out of the way, which hopefully will take some of the worry out of the next one when you both know what to expect. Recovery time now so get you pinny on smile
This can't be right....where's his laptop?

good to hear Maureen is doing well

Well done Maureen and a relief for you Brian. You will have to help her with getting mobile again, lots of encouragement because there can be some discomfort.

Glad to hear Maureen is well after day one. I am amazed it is only a few days in hospital.
I can picture Mrs. Wordsworth sitting at this marvelous desk catching up on her correspondence while in the background you hear the squeals and cries of her children. As usual, the National Trust has done a fabulous job of furnishing the room in the style of the period.

So glad to hear Maureen's hip operation went well and she's on the mend, Brian.
Thank you for the good news about Maureen Brian! She'll be up on her legs very soon.
Wonderful house furniture.

Glad to hear good news - Maureen has to go her first steps and you will join her ...

An elegant room for Mrs. Wordsworth, surely also a kind of retreat whilst the children are playing in the garden and at the Derwent river ...

This idyllic youth ended early, unfortunately. WW lost his mother when he was eight and five years later his father. He was separated from his beloved sister Dorothy.
lovely scene, reminds me of leeds castle in kent
A nice little bolt hole for her. I expect she enjoyed sitting by the fire in here.

Glad to hear Maureen's op went well

Ah... yes.. but I don't think he would have had an electric candle smile I'm pleased that Maureen is doing well.
I'm enjoying flipping through your images of "Lakeland"!

Glad to hear Maureen is doing well! You take good care of her - I know you will! smile
