Bateman's - Home of Rudyard Kipling

This is a view of the above; one of the loveliest homes we saw during our summer holiday. We all agreed we would feel right at home there!

Yesterday we went to see some potential wedding clients. They had attended Chris & Katy's wedding in September and we were recomended. That was so kind of Chris & Katy! We really enjoyed meeting B & S again and S's parents at their beautiful farm house. Today I heard that they are booking us, which is lovely.

On the way home, we stopped the car to look at a map. Suddenly we heard a HUGE bang and looked up to see a car buried in a tree across the road! I rushed over to see if I could help the driver whilst phoning for the police and ambulance. To my huge relief the driver was ok, just very shocked and a bit sore in places. Phil was busy comforting the other driver. I have no idea who was to blame; they both seemed like really nice, genuine people and I'm just thankful no-one was seriously injured!

I've spent most of today with my mum in law. I love her SO MUCH. It hurts so much to see her frightened. I just want to "fix her", make everything go away and I know I can't.

Love the old home with all its character. I think I could live there too.
That was a very scary thing to be so close to the accident. Glad no one was injured.
I'm sure your Mum in Law as so happy to have you there to comfort her. I think your being there is the best medicine.

I've read a great farming diary by Kipling and so it's great to see where it was set.

P>S> Should, of course, have mentioned that I'm thinking of your mother in law.

Congratulations on the wedding booking and how lovely to have been recommended by a previous client!

My heart missed a beat when you said you heard a terrific bang - I thought someone had run into the back of your car! I hope the two people involved in that accident don't have the problems I'm having after my accident!

Your MIL is still in my prayers and I'm still sending Reiki to her. x

These big old houses are lovely. They don't build them like that today.

Congratulations on the wedding booking. I wish that we had shopped around a bit more for a wedding photographer. A friend of husbands did ours (and they weren't very good).

I hope that your MIL is on the mend.
