Well what a week. I spent most of it filming for something that I will tell you all about in September and then my in-laws came for the weekend; the first time they have been here since 2019. It felt so strange to see them inside and not huddling under an umbrella at the end…

And welcome February – let’s hope by the end of this (short) month that things are looking up. Vaccination is proceeding and numbers are dropping and, what’s more, by the time the 28th rolls round those who have had their jabs should be on the way to being immune. So there are reasons to be…

By many accounts last week was a tricky one, not just because of events in America which will have touched some of you personally, but also the first week of a new year which was, for many us, spent in another lockdown with dire news reports coming in from every direction. So, as usual, I…

I was going to show you a very beautiful, very expensive, somewhat neutral house this week but given the reaction to the calming neutrals the other day, I decided against it and we shall look at this charming four bedroom maisonette which, as is so often the case, ties up a few of the themes…
