For the 6th summer we have been blessed by the hospitality of the West family.
Their home has come to be affectionately known as the "Pudding Palace" - due to the propensity of calorific desserts!
At least there is the opportunity to burn a few calories with a walk on the downs, or a bounce on the trampoline!
They have proved their enduring friendship by putting up with huge quantities of washing. Our family is accustomed to changing clothes at least once a day in Thailand. It's hard to adjust and so our children put their jeans to be washed after only one wear.
In this panoramic of West's garden, you can see that the whirly airer is full and another clothes airer is out as well...
