Dave Courtney is famous as an ex-gangster. There is a very interesting article here about him.
Knuckle duster gate decorations.
The house is called Camelot Castle.
It has sentries!
This is the view down the hill-I liked the railings.
The painting on the side of the house is quite impressive.
These two photos look the same but I have a feeling one is larger than the other if you wanted to click to enlarge.
Perk 2-being given a delicious Turkish breakfast in the second house we visited. It was about 11 so I was quite hungry. When we arrived the table was laid and had toast, olives, tomatoes, mince and tomatoes, jam and very delicious cheese. There was also Turkish tea served in little glass cups from a big stainless steel teapot. The tea was poured then diluted with hot water from the jug which the teapot sat on. I had a lovely time!
Our visits today were less eventful but still pleasant. We are supposed to be deciding who to give a full time place to in September, based on the need of the child and family. So far I have wanted to give almost every child a full time place because of different reasons. It is very hard to decide. One little boy we visited today lives with just his Mum in one room in a small terraced house. They use the kitchen and bathroom but their life is in that room. It makes me think how lucky I am. We have more visits after Easter so I have longer to think about it.
