A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

WORDSWORTH HOUSE 5/5

To close this short look at the house in Cockermouth where William Wordsworth grew up in the 1770’s a view of the back of the house and also the garden. I have inserted a copy of the plaque on the wall outside of the property as a point of interest.


-------- SHE'S HOME! --------

We brought Maureen home from the hospital late yesterday afternoon.

Now the hard work starts - for both of us!!

Ha Ha

When the missus returns, then the house becomes a home again!

I am amusing myself by imagining you in frilly apron, Brian, bustling about the place and trying to look busy and competent...
Welcome back home to Maureen!
My thoughts are you both of you for the recovery period.
I presume these flower beds are full of Daffodils in Spring.
Nice.....
the gutteridge making its way down the front of the house sticks out a bit but i suppose its a question of function before form?
Brian Walbey: Very fine gutteridge, I bet Chad would love to see that smile

I was fascinated by all those plaques I saw in Bath last year, Brian, telling who was born or who died or who was married or who eloped from that particular place. It's a nice way to keep track of the gossip. grin

Now, let the games begin! Hopefully things will be much easier and better than both you and Maureen expect!
Brian Walbey: I wonder what the plaques would say if they were on the wall outside Chris's and Bill's houses smile

A very historic site isn't it
Brian Walbey: Certainly is Chris, although we thought it wasn't the most exciting of NT.properties to visit.

O, I remember this wonderful garden -when we were there, the apples were already ripe - look at the gutteridge at the house - I posted once a photo of them on SC.
Oh, I'm so glad that Maureen is at home - and she will be rovering quickly supported by her dear hubby. I wonder how early the patients in UK have to leave the hospital after such a really big operation.

Philine is right - we do seem to discharge our patients very early from hospital. But I am sure she prefers to be looked after by you
Brian Walbey: My own personal opinion is that "cost cutting" and patient turnover comes into it. When I had my heart attack in 2008 I asked how long I would be in and they said 5 days, that's the standard, and 5 days it was!!

Good news!!!! Welcome back home Maureen, no place like home.
All the best for both of you.
Wonderful place, I think when the flowers bloom, even more.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, we are learning as we go along what is easiest for Maureen at the moment, and of course I'm doing things differently than she does, oh dear! smile

Glad the missus is home and your short freedom has been curtailed Brian. I can just see you frantically tidying up ready to make her feel as if you have not been living like a teenager. My best wishes to your superior half and for a speedy recovery.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Chad, we are learning how things work best at the moment for Maureen. BTW did you notice that lovely gutteridge on today's post, I have taken other photos of it to show specially for you at another time.

This has been a nice series, Brian. Glad Maureen is home but it certainly seems early to me.
Brian Walbey: Other people from overseas have passed the same comment Mary but my own personal opinion is that "cost cutting" and patient turnover comes into it. When I had my heart attack in 2008 I asked how long I would be in and they said 5 days, that's the standard, and 5 days it was!!
Nicely framed Brian........welcome home to Maureen smile
A fine shot of the rear Brian. Best wishes to Maureen and hope for a speedy recovery
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, time will be the healer for Maureen I hope.

The house looks nothing special from this angle but the look looks productive. I hope you enjoyed your "holiday"! Take care you your good lady.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. It was a short holiday, she came home on Thursday. We didn't find this house one of the most exciting NT.properties to be honest.
Hope all is going well. I realised after replying to your comment that I hadn't actually looked at you picture today!

Nice one. Give Maureen my best
Brian Walbey: Maureen says thanks Bill. She is doing well, her leg is very swollen at the top and quite stiff, it will take a while to get back to anything like normal I guess.
