I have at last moved to where I intended - Stratford-upon-Avon.  I have already lived here twice, for eight years and two years, and before setting off on new journeys.  Perhaps in the olden days I would have been the female equivalent of a journeyman.  But more about nomadic life and touring in another blog.  

Now I am here to stay, in a tiny rented terraced house in the middle of the town.  The theatre and the beautiful river with its old willow trees are six minutes from my doorstep.  The surrounding countryside makes for stimulating walks and nothing much has changed.  Maybe there are some new developments on the outskirts and road systems that do not always make sense, but essentially the core of Stratford is here: its merchants, travellers, inns, markets, river-craft and of course entertainment.

I have learned something about creating environments, and this undersized dwelling and diminutive garden is slowly being changed into a set worthy of A Midsummer Night's Dream.  As the picture shows I am experimenting with drapes, fabrics and garlands.  Please see my Facebook Sue Jennings to see the continuing story of the transformations.  They grow lovelier by the day!
