it was a special day to remember eilleen – we sprinkled her ashes on her husbands grave in mortlake cemetry and planted a few flowers and then we celebrated with a big family lunch in the lovely Petersham Hotel. the view from the restaurant is just spectacular – and the food is delicious too. its definitely a lovely venue for a special family get together. the restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. i also loved the drive over hammersmith bridge and through barnes – lovely views by the river.
another of my favourite beauty spots are the gardens of kilver court in shepton mallet, with wells cathedral close by, its a lovely weekend retreat. close by is the mulberry factory shop where you can definitely find a great bargain.
