One of the joys of this business is meeting such lovely people. By default, visitors are relaxed; they’re away from work; no worries about parking; they have the whole house to themselves, and most importantly they’re with people they love. I mean they’re with family and friends. This house seems to attract groups of friends, and families, having a get together.
Perhaps it’s because Stratford is centrally located; not too far from Birmingham airport; an easy route off the M40; same for the M5. Sometimes part of the group will arrive by train while the others drive.
Whatever the reason, there’s often a gathering or a reunion happening next door. And it’s lovely to witness old friends being back together again. To heck with the noise. Laughter is a wonderful sound.
