Stuart, Max, and I have a morning routine that I think is probably one of the secrets to our success of being able to run two small businesses together--and still be happily married. Every morning, rain, sun, sleet, snow, or wind, we take a walk together after breakfast. That way the stresses of cooking and serving breakfast together can melt away with each step. Any little disagreement or tension we might have had is forgotten and we're just a couple on a walk with our dog.
|By the time we hit Holywell Cottage|
on Longwall Street, breakfast is
forgotten and we're hand in hand.
|Snowdrops are carpeting Holywell Cemetery |
especially beautifully this year.
|Daffodils will soon be replacing |
the snowdrops and crocus.
