Children, children everywhere! Last weekend the lodge saw a family gathered for the wedding of their niece tying the knot in Leyburn and celebrating with a reception in Bolton Castle. This Irish family were a delight to host. They arrived with highchairs, cots, blow up beds, beakers and boxes of toys. A wonderful chaos filled the house with the tiled hallway ideal for nappy clad bottoms to slide easily around, the dining room switched instantly from breakfast room to colouring and play room, while the communal kitchen was stocked with wine, beer and baby food!
The morning breakfast orders were taken with the help of Emelia, aged 5 who confidently asked what her family would like for their “Full Yorkshire breakfast dinner order!” These orders were then delivered to Henry in the kitchen to produce the various requests and decipher the smiley faces and wobbly ticks. 22 sausages for Uncle Tom’s order caused him to flinch a little!
Penny found her intellectual level in the Under 5’s and needed no encouragement to sit on the lounge carpet to play dominoes and construct puzzles, leaving the chores on hold while there was fun to be had. The children seemed to enjoy it too!
