"We Are Family" - Sister Sledge, 1979

John's mum Anne has spent this weekend with us -- our first weekend visitor to our new home! We've had a terrific time. I thought Lord Celery's readers might enjoy a few photos taken today. (As usual, click on any of the photos for a full-sized version.)

Here's Anne, relaxing in our living room.

And here's my John...resting his injured neck in a supportive collar.

Anne and I took a walk in the village this afternoon. Near our house, we came across some beautiful passion flowers. (I have some young vines growing in our back garden, but it will be some time before they produce flowers this beautiful!)

Our parish church.

This is one of our favorite homes in the village. I wonder how many rooms this place actually has!

And it was my eagle-eyed mother-in-law who noticed that the carving over the house's door says it was built in 1617!

The center of our village -- the Market Place.

Here's Anne, admiring the buildings around the Market Place.

We finally have a useable dining room (i.e. not full of boxes!), and we put it to good use tonight. John and I realized that this is our first dinner party!

John and Anne enjoying some of John's legendary Nasi Goreng!

I can't wait to try his Nasi Goreng! One of my favorite meals.

Janet...I've just discovered your wonderful are a natural-born writer. Congratulations on your lovely new home and on getting all the boxes out of the dining room!

I also must confess that through your photos I have fallen in love with the village. Am glad I'll be able to keep up with the local news (there was a certain charm to the first bus shelter).

Bronx Boy: You and your lovely wife should come over the pond and see us, and I KNOW John would happily cook for you two also!

Juliette: Glad you've found my blog, and I hope you continue to come back to visit from time to time!
