This post is being brought to you through a haze of nausea and tiredness. I'm not sure if it's the jet lag or if I've picked up a bit of a bug, but feeling pretty weak and spaced out. Anyhow, we took trillions of photos while we were away. Here are a couple of my favourites from the first week, which we spent in Suffolk, England.
Shaun's 93yo nan lives in this region, which is why we visited. I'd done a bit of research before we left and booked a self-catering cottage in the village of Lavenham. This is one of England's finest medieval towns. Check it out:

That's the street we stayed on. Seriously. I just couldn't get enough of its gorgeousness!
It really worked in our favour that we visited the time of year we did. Sure, it was COLD but apparently in summer this village swarms with tour buses. I can imagine it would.
The cottage was an absolute dream. This is the view through our lounge room window:

The little one really enjoyed himself being in England ... I mean, ducks, squirrels ... what's not to love?!

Urgh, I'm feeling queasy again ... so I will leave this post here and resume later.

Looks like a great trip - used to live in England myself. Shame you weren't feeling well - probably picked up something on the flight over. My girl's dad is from Brisbane so we have a bit of an Aussie connection despite living in the States.
