Weekend with friends

Had a lovely time last weekend staying with some friends who live in Hampshire. We've known them for several years but initially only online and we've just met up at the odd bike meet. It was great to find that we got on so well and were totally relaxed in each others company. We felt quite at home there and didn't have to be on our best behaviour as guests and I think they didn't have to be on edge trying to be good hosts. It's the sort of situation you hope for but you don't know will happen till you try it.

They have recently bought a Huf house. It's one of those German ones that are nearly all glass and very high tech. It was lovely, very light and airy, open plan on the ground floor and with a good lay out of rooms and "flow". I was quite jealous to start with but it would be no good for me and LB, we're far too untidy. It's the sort of house that needs to be kept uncluttered and minimalist and even though our kids have left home we still can't manage that!

The highlights of the weekend were our bike ride around the New Forest & trip to the Sammy Miller bike Museum. LB spotted some electric pushbikes for sale at the Museum so had a go on one around the courtyard.

In the evening we went to a talk by Simon Pavey on his experiences as a Dakar and enduro rider and teacher at the BMW Off Road School. Really interesting.

The only thing I'd change is the hangover we were all suffering from on the Saturday. We hadn't intended getting drunk but were enjoying ourselves so much the alcohol sneakily crept up on us and slid down our throats without us realising! Anyway a great weekend so thanks Anne.

Indeed you were great guests. Thanks.

I am not sure you could class us as minimalists -you obviously did not look in our bedrooms which are piled high with junk!

Lovel pic of the house ( and the non-minimalist washing line) - perhaps you could send me a high resolution copy.

Glad you like it. You can have a copy when I get home next week. I hadn't noticed the washing line till you mentioned it. I'll see if I can photoshop it out!
