RETURN TO MERRYMEADE HOUSE


Out and about in the cold Essex air today. Visited this charming Grade II house Merrymeade in Brentwood which I knew more than 20 years ago.  Such an interesting heritage. Since its renovation, it really is beautiful with so many different aspects since last I came. Had a quick tour and so pleased that the lovely wood panelling has been retained in staircase area and around the building.I was invited by the clever journalist and PR girl Wendy Pike who is so successful and full of amazing ideas. Coffee in the Merrymeade Tea Room which is open Monday-Saturday 9 till 4 selling the most gorgeous cakes and coffee with Jane and Skye on hand to help.  Really great little oasis in Brentwood. Do pop in.


Then off for a wander around the building and discovered it is a Buddhist Centre, as well as a place for help and healing, so will pay a return visit soon.  Here we have Wendy with our new best friend! Then walkabout in Brentwood and a visit to the lovely David in Waterstones with one of my first published books about Brentwood - so appropriate - hope they want to sell my latest (and 10th) book soon.
