...and then there was one... sitting at the table, waiting for K to come and collect the keys, and then the Old Parish Poorhouse wasn't ours any more... *sighs sadly*

We were very good and got everything tidied and cleaned and all in good time (even if the bin bag did split when I took it out to the wheelie bin... *headdesk*), and [livejournal.com profile] foxcat74 got off, and [livejournal.com profile] greengerbil got off, and then it was my turn...

Random last pics... )

Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] erushi? I finally got close enough to take a pic of that thing up on the hill!


Of course it looked... )

Still behiiind, but I'm using this as impetus to keep going now that I'm back at ordinary old home again... *sighs*

Thursday! What did we do on Thursday? Made coffee and tea and bagels and toast on the Aga for breakfast, and then we actually played a writing game (for which - thank you, guys! *g*).



This was actually really good - we each had a prompt from the Prompt Box, a character, and the instruction that our characters were saved by the prompt... There are four Pros-y stories as a result, including this absolutely gorgeous fic here. I failed slightly in that I didn't quite finish in the hour and a half, but I was only about five minutes and one-wee-piece-of-inspiration away, so I'm hoping to finish it tonight instead - yeay, first finished fic in ages! *g*

Today (okay, yesterday really, cos I'm laaaaate posting...) was a big adventure-y day for [livejournal.com profile] foxcat74 and me, because we left [livejournal.com profile] greengerbil and [livejournal.com profile] jaycat92 tapping their hearts out in the Poorhouse, and we went out to actually see a sight in Derbyshire...


Eyam - the village which voluntarily cut itself off from everyone when it found it was infected with the Plague in 1665... )

More holiday-ish sadness this morning, waving goodbye to [livejournal.com profile] londonronnie... *sighs* though we did get to meet Mr Londonronnie and thank him for his ratatouille... *g*

One thing that is not happening on this Writing Holiday is that I'm not getting any writing done! *headdesk* Other people are, mind, so yeay! But... waaah!

I did try today... )

Sad, sad, sadness this morning - lots of people going home, waaah! Come back, [livejournal.com profile] jojosimco and [livejournal.com profile] erushi and [livejournal.com profile] probodie and [livejournal.com profile] lukadreaming! It feels ever so echo-y without you...

...though we had a visit from the local pony... *g*

A lazy Sunday it was... coffee and Aga toast for breakfast - yummy! Turns out Aga toast is nice and crispy and... toasty. *g* Delish. Lots of chatting and laptopping, and a wee bit of writing, and... oh, and then we went to the pub for lunch! How lovely and lazy is that?

Yeay for holidays - Buck's Fizz and croissants for breakfast, a supermarket trip in the most gorgeous sunshine (and how pretty is this valley?! Steep hills mind - I actually put Little Car in a gear!).

Wheeee for Friday, and for getting in the car and driving northwards, and finding...


A house! And just across the road, when I went and stood in the driveway to see if there was a signal on my phone, there was a pub with a Pros-y person standing waving to get my attention! Forget mobile phones - don't need 'em up here... *g* And there was another Pros-y person inside, and gradually there was Pedigree, and then more Pros-y people, and then dinner in the pub (four vegetarian options!) and then... Pros! Wheee! We watched Ojuka and we watched Backtrack, and isn't it nice when [livejournal.com profile] londonronnie, [livejournal.com profile] probodie, [livejournal.com profile] jojosimco, [livejournal.com profile] erushi, [livejournal.com profile] greengerbil, [livejournal.com profile] lukadreaming and [livejournal.com profile] foxcat74 are watching with you? *g*

And there's an Aga! We're so Larton it's untrue! *g* None of us have ever used one before, so it's all a big voyage of cooking-discovery... It's very cool, although actually we've not done much but boil water for tea yet - but there's the promise of Aga toast... *g*

Yeay - *happy sigh*

And if you'd like some pictures, there are just a few so far...

The balloon has nothing to do with it I'm afraid, but I glanced out my window just now and there it was, all gorgeously peaceful, floating through the blue morning sky... *sighs happily* I must look into the balloon clubs again when I get back...

And I say when I get back becaue it's Friday! I'm on holiday for a whole more-than-a-week! I'm going to glorious Derbyshire, renting a house with some fabulous people, and best of all? It's a Pros-y Writing Holiday! Wheeeee!

A bunch of us were talking a while ago, and someone said something along the lines of "Wouldn't it be fab to have a holiday where you could just sit down peacefully and write Pros all day long... and have Pros-y people to chat to when you got stuck... and Pros-y mates to watch eps with for inspiration...who were writing Pros all around you... and..." And other people said Oooh yes! too, and now we are all going on a Pros-y Writing Holiday! Wheeeee!

I'm more happy and excited than a happy and excited thing that is going to get to write for a whole week. *vbg* There's gonna be Pros and writing and Pros and cool people and Pros and an old old house in Derbyshire and Pros and writing and writing and Pros! This is the plan. *g*

The other part of the plan is that I get my bottom off this chair and into the shower, pack Little Car (happy Little Car!) and head north in time to meet the owner of the house and get the keys from her. So I should go and do that now, really. *g*

Holidaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
