I know… I know, it’s 2018 already and I still haven’t had a chance to write about this wonderful trip of ours at Blue-Ginger Gallery yet. Where does the time goes!! Actually, there are a hold loads of our trips that I haven’t a chance to write about, so I will try my best to do some catch up here, starting with our lovely stay at Blue-Ginger Gallery.
Let’s rewind back to Easter 2017, (yep Easter), where it is not too chilli during the day time and still warm enough to have just two layers of clothing on. We were invited to stay over at Sue’s Blue-Ginger Gallery. A long while ago, I wrote “Why Blue-Ginger Gallery Is A Special Place For Us.” Do have a read as this is an insider story rather than our “usual” review. So it is rather special you could say. In short, Sue is an old friend of mine – well… or rather more like my second mother to me and is also Ethan’s God Mother too, (even Evelyn calls her “My God-Mother” too – she is so cute!).
When I started writing this, I have had no idea that I had so much to talk about! So I have decided to split this post into 3 parts. Here is Part 1.
Day 1 – The Rooms
We arrived late in the evening and was greeted by Sue’s loveliest smiles. The kids were very excited by this stay at this old two story beam house. We were lead to our rooms and to drop off our bags there. E&E have had a little surprised waiting for them in bed. They have received a bunny each. Until this day, they couldn’t go to sleep without them. Bless.
Leading down towards downstairs, I can’t help but to look out from this window. The scenery here is so peaceful. I almost forgot at how quiet it can be here. I used to come here from time to time when I used to live in London, getting away from the hustle bustle. I came here to re-collect my thoughts and so I can restart again fresh when I go back. But here, it’s always make me feel warm and welcome at home every time.
Downstairs there is a Televisions room and living room, decorated with lots of quirky ornaments.
But since there is a lovely cosy log fire place in the living room, we spent most of our time there.
By then it was close to closing time for the gallery, Sue treats us some yummy cakes she made herself. I love her cakes. The smell is just wonderful and that freshly brew coffee is what I needed after a long journey in the car. Here are some of the cake photos that Sue’s took that morning. Her cake are freshly baked everyday!
After our little cakes delights and coffee fired up, Sue introduced the kids to a little treasure hunt game around the gallery. As Ethan now can read with a little help, he was enjoying this game. With Evelyn’s help, they could find the items within no time. Such a wonderful idea! I should do one around our house too. A great way to keeping them busy. 😉
Sue also runs Artists’ workshops too. And does Wedding Gifts’ list as well. Here are some of the quirky items you’ll find at Blue-Ginger Gallery, ranging from £20 – £2000+!
Maureen & Lottie the dog
E&E meet Lottie the dog and played a little ball game with her and Sue’s niece, Maureen. Maureen used to babysit me when I was little, and it is so sweet seeing that she like the company of my children too. Maureen also help out at Blue-Ginger gallery too.
Lottie the dog was a recuse dog. We all love her here. She likes to be around people. And if she doesn’t have anyone to be around with she would bark and sulk. Sound like one of my kids! lol! She is very clever and loves children to bits. E&E keep asking me for a dog, but at this point in our life it is just not for us. I do love to have a pet though – a dog or a cat would be nice. Perhaps, in the far future one day.
We end our evening with a cosy “family” dinner, cooked by Sue and got to catch up over dinner with her son, Kenji Lim and Maureen. It was like old times. I can’t believe how time flies. I was just 10 year old when I first sat at this very table. Now, I’m with my own family too.
By the way, remember this name – Kenji Lim. He is becoming very famous in the Art World. Why? Take a look at his artistic work here, and you’ll understand why.
So there you have it, our Part 1 – what did I tell you – there’s so much to tell!
