I love it love it when guests really connect and support each other in their writing. Then the entire atomosphere of the house becomes sort of wordy and long discussions are had in the evening by the fire.
I adore that feeling when people leave having achieved. It's a bit like the kind of euphoria you get when you've just given birth.
And when people compliment me on my cooking, I'm in heaven. Moussaka, baked potatoes and salad tonight, followed by chocolate mousse.
