Saturday Steps and an Old House

Mom and Dads getting their money worth out of
 The National Trust.
This is Sunnycroft, in Telford Shropshire
A Victorian middle class family house, its unique because the inside is as it was all those years ago.

We waited out side while mom went in to take some photos and find out about it

"Oh no you weren't allowed to take photos!!! how will we know what its like inside?"
"don't worry George I'm pretty sure I can find a link on the Internet when we get home"

Oh well lets show you the outside

Chickens and one Cockerel

Thats a mighty fine head peace you have!!

A carcoon !!! thats what it said on the sign
  • Isolate from the constantly changing temperature and humidity of the ambient environment.
  • Stabalize by removing excess moisture, fuel/oil vapor and other contaminates from within the mini environment.
  • Ventilate using the patented Active Airflow Concept.
  • Circulate isolated circulation within using Activated Carbon Filters under pressure.

"Hey mom you could do with one of them for your Motorbike!!"

"Dad come on lets have a game with them skittles" 

"You throw it I'll catch"

"Not so fast, I missed that one!!"

"aren't you supposed to hit the skittles not me!!"

" Hang on these balls are made out of wood!! I don't want to play any more I might chip a tooth!!"

"come on pass us some!!"

Mom's flower photos!!

And a Tree!!!

A walk back down the driveway though the Red woods to the car

Mom's found a link so you can see the inside and find out about its owners over the years.

I'll be back in the week with this months Photo scavenger hunt
Till next time
See Yea George xxx

I didn't read the story in the link but I looked at the pictures and wow, that's pretty cool they kept it the same as it was all those years ago.

So I want to play Pip's game and win the prize but I'm not sure what the answer to his last question is. The last question is, Who is Pip's biggest nemesis? I thought it was the rabbit because now Pip can no longer go into the living room. But the hint was that it relates to George the Lad. So now I'm really confused?! Can you help me with this one?

Scooter said...

Hey George!
Wow, another pawesome set of steps. Mom loved that greenhouse, but Dad was all kinds of interested in that Carcoon! He found that to be really cool! Thanks for sharing the pix.
Grr and Woof,

Oh George, It is sure fun to go visiting with you!
What good manners you have waiting for your slice of cake :)

Patrice said...

I love that greenhouse or whatever it's called. That's a nice building. You get to go on such fun outings, George dear!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Well George my mom would go totally NUTS over that Green House thingy.

I am glad that you didn't chip a tooth playing Skittles. It looked like your dad is pretty good at that game.

Lovely Post... esp. the bright yellow flowers.
OH and YOU, of course.

Rose H (UK) said...

Now that's what I call a greenhouse and water butt! Fabulous place George :o) Mom's lovely photos of course. I'm glad you didn't damage thise lovely teeth with those wooden balls! Did Dad have a strike in the end?
By the way, you are totally forgiven for jumping up last week ;O)
Lots of love
Auntie Rose

Cranberry Morning said...

George, you are just way too cute!! And love that greenhouse. Wouldn't that be fabulous! What a beautiful photo of that rooster. Every time I see a great comb like that it reminds me of a Wallace and Grommit movie, 'The Wrong Trousers.' :-)

Jon Terry said...

Hey George!

Lovely pics. It's a good thing that those chicken didn't run after you. LOL It's sure has been a great outing for you and to top it up, you get to have a piece of cake :)

All my hugs and licks for mommy!! I'm still keeping all her love deep in my heart ;)

Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Hey George, mum laughed at your mum's comment today. Yea..... I sometimes get too carried away with bugs and sticks to notice flowers and plants!! But mum loves all that nature stuff.

Another lovely place to visit.... and I liked your skittles game and hope you didn't break any tooth pegs!!

The bit I like the most was the picture of the CAKE!!!! I noted it was NOT chocolate so hope you got some!! ;-)

Tail Wuggles, Rubie.

Sally said...

We would love to live in a house like that! Looks like you had a good time even if they did not allow you inside!

Lots of licks
Sally and paddy

I read the story and looked at the pictures of the beautiful house, it's so amazing, isn't it?
I always love to visit your blog and look forward to seeing your pictures, the places you visit are always beautiful and the pictures are awesome too. Your mom is a fantastic photographer!

WFT Nobby said...

Hi George
We love waking up on Saturday morning to your reliably smiling face.
That skittles game looked interesting. I think I would be pretty good at running around and knocking over the skittles (that is the point, isn't it?).
Toodle pip!
PS Did you get some cake?

Molly the Airedale said...

The cockerel doesn't look too happy about having his picture taken, George. What a handsome grump!
You always have the most funnest adventures!

Oh thank you precious friends for visiting; if you wish to take the Paris tour, do come next week for a peek. It wouldn't be the same without a comment from you!

Amber-Mae said...

WOW what a splendid day you had! That house is so cool. Kinda looks like a castle. It looks sorta creepy, haunted too. The greenhouse is very nice though. Kinda reminds of the one in the Harry Potter movie. Did you get to have a taste of that cake? I hope so.

Sherry said...

OOOO, a greenhouse to die for! How do you keep getting all that sunshine, George? You must bring it with you wherever you go.

What a lovely place. our human belongs to The National trust so she's going to make a note of that one. We love all the pics but the tea and cake looks especially nice!! Dex & Lou x

Bailey Be Good! said...

Just found my way to your site and I was pleasantly surprised! I loved reading all about your adventures. Beautiful pics, too!

I followed you. :)

Happy Sunday woofs & hugs,


Homer said...

Alreet George?

I am curious to know who takes these booti-ful photos? Your mom or dad?

Kiss kiss,

Adien Crafts said...

Hi George - us again! Thanks for dropping by, tell your Mum that yes, we have had good practise at pulling a face like the Drontal ad, in fact we think he copied us!! Dexter is very good at it and the human keeps trying to get a photo but he moves his face - he's such a poser, I'm told I look like I'm doing an Elvis impersonation with a lip curl when it gets caught in my beard! Bye for now, Louis x

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Teeeeheeee! You get your rest now son, and on Saturday, you be the first to arrive and see (shhhhhhhhhh) my story! Just between us CHIENS...


violett said...

I'm always fascinated by the beautiful places that you visit.
And the photos of your mother always better. They have professional quality.
Also, I'd rather eat a piece of cake, as playing with a wooden ball. You're doing right, my friend george.
Lots of love

Road Dog Tales said...

We love everything about this adventure! The flowers, the cake, the house, the skittles game (we would probably use the pieces for chew toys-we like to chew wood), the cake, the beautiful flowers, the cake, the fabulous greenhouse, did we mention the cake???

Great post, George!

Wyatt said...

Thanks for the tour. My mom just LOVES that greenhouse!
We like the skittle game. We wish you lived by us, George, and you could come over and play crouquet with us. Mom and Dad are terrible players but it's fun to watch...hehee

Wyatt and Stanzie

Busy Buttons said...

That greenhouse looks really, really cool!

Littlemissairgap said...

Hi Georgie ... it's been awhile since I've come for a visit. I think you've grown since I was last here. I do get so terribly jealous when I visit your page because I sooooo want to come and live in England for a little while. Yes, you heard me right; give up the warmth & sunshine of Australia for a bit of the beautiful English countryside ... plus that cake & tea look ever so good :-)

Chicco said...

Hello George,

I loved this post. All the pictures are wonderful.
You're very lucky my friend.
Woof, woof,


J_on_tour said...

You might not have been allowed inside George, but you had plenty of fun outside. Your mum is taking good photos here too.
