Only in Essex

After a stress free three days in Southend-on-Sea which has involved no driving whatsoever Louis and I are off to the hinterlands of Norfolk after lunch.  We're visiting my brother, Paul, but as he has no space for us in his house, we're pitching in the Queen's garden - literally! Being a semi-Luddite no technology to enable me to blog is available so you'll have to wait for our reports until we get back to Lovelygrey Villas and see if we've succeeded in being invited into Sandringham for tea with HRH.

I thought I'd show you this beautiful house that's on a select street near Mama and Papa Lovelygrey's more modest home.  The aptly named 'Deco Rose' is a residence that I've always admired and if money were no object, what fun I'd have kitting it out in period opulence.  A bronze here and there,  some gorgeous lighting and perhaps even a cocktail cabinet.  What fun Jeeves!   And  to complement the internal deco why not have beautiful 1930s curvy 'airline car' on the drive?

And the Essex Man who own this gaff has had the same idea in displaying his prize vehicle in front of his home.  After we are in the county where car is king and an old banger outside this covetable piece of period architecture just would not do.Behold the Hummer on the drive.  In genius style, this chap has decided to meld the old and the new in a way that would have Jeremy Clarkson crying with pride!


  1. A highly covetable house indeed. I'm not so sure about the vehicle though.

    Enjoy Norfolk but try not to boast if HM does invite your for tea.

  2. Horrible Hummer but a good advert for his business. Love the curvy windows.
