Finally got to visit Fountains Abbey in North Yorkshire. I nearly got here 25 years ago....within spitting distance! But never made it. So its been there in my memory for a long time...a memory of longing really.

On saturday I got the chance to go to Steve Plunketts car show at his home just near London, Ontario.I like car design and there were some amazing cars to see. Some were just out daft ones and others so ostentatious that I was open mouthed. There was such a vast array of types/ages and models. It makes me worry hugely about our planet, but on the plus side, a lot of money was raised for #JessesJourney so that was impressive.

Amazing trip to the CN Tower in Toronto. An unexpected trip that finished the whole holiday off with a flourish. Magical weather with light that was almost unbelievable. Views from the tower were astonishing.

An interesting visit to the forest of Marston Vale, a landscape being reformed after years of brick production. I've never seen a brick beach before and its odd but nature is absorbing it all and making it its own. Amazing really.

Its fantastic to realise dreams and longings. I visited 78 Derngate today in Northampton. It's a house that was commissioned by Northampton model engineer W. J. Bassett- Lowke - designed throughout by the great Charles Rennie Mackintosh. I have wanted to go for about the last twenty years!

Its a wonderful place to visit. Friendly staff and lovely gift shops etc.... but being able to walk about the house freely is such a lovely thing to get the chance to do. You really get to experience a house with a complete design style in every detail from the light fittings to the window catches. Its very distinctive, especially the lounge with its black and yellow colour scheme and stencilled walls. Its fantastic to see such an individual voice, such a striking design vision when you think this was being done in 1916, right in the First World War.

And do visit. Its worth the trip to Northampton.
