mercaston 001   All of the paintings hanging in our home are memories.  Sadly, last weekend, one of them, a watercolour of a favourite holiday place crashed to the floor.   Mercaston Hall in Derbyshire.  I recall on one visit it was the eighteenth birthday of the daughter of the owners.  I rang the doorbell and she answered wearing a beautiful ankle length evening dress.   …And trainers.

She was beautiful.
