This is Manx Queenie, now back home in the UK and settled in once more. So, it's back to the old routine, and it hasn't taken long, as messages on the answer phone and letters through the mail all seemed to contain invitations, requests, confirmatory dates, etc. so I feel as if I've never been away!

Once a week Christiana and I volunteer our services at our local National Trust property, which is Gunby Hall and Gardens, about a 20-minute drive from our village. It is a small country house, built in 1700, and has housed a succession of delightfully eccentric people - the Massingberd family - which has included a vicar whose son wasted his inheritance on gambling and the high life before disappearing down the Amazon, never to be seen again, a lady who favoured masculine dress and founded a club in London to promote rights for women, and an army officer who, upon seeing Men from the Ministry during World War II who were measuring up trees on the estate, accused them of trespassing, only to then discover that the MoD intended to build a runway across his land, demolishing his house in the process.

It was at this point that the National Trust became involved, and today there is a very inviting family home open to all and sundry to visit. The family, no longer able to afford to tenant the house, let it out to a series of other tenants, some of whom were somewhat dubious to say the least, but now the Hall is no longer tenanted and is gradually being refurbished and, as the money comes in, so more rooms are being opened to the public - the somewhat bruised and battered house is blossoming under the tender, loving care of its current manager and our visitors love it!

More of this anon - tales of grand pianos, recalcitrant felines - but enough for now, I think

Afternoon all. With hindsight I think I should have changed two of my answers, but was in a rush as the computer was being used up until five minutes beforehand...I won't do it, but will keep my alternative answers in mind and see what the results show.

Hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine.
Oh dear, I've just read that last post again, and it sounds as though I'm trying to be clever...quite unintentional, honestly. Put it down to poor judgement as I'm
in a tizzy with my son and grandsons visiting for the first time in nearly three years!
