As part of my thesis, I get to explore three Tudor-era places: a palace, a home and a manor. Honestly, it is the best part of this whole shin-dig! I've loved being able to be a 'kid again' and wander around looking at the institutions through the eyes of a child... Below are just a few pictures of my fun at Hampton Court Palace and Kentwell Hall!

|The gardens at Kentwell Hall are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen!|

The research for this dissertation has been an adventure so far - at times, fun and at times, painful. Now, I am currently in the throes of writing the 12,000 words needed by September. It is a bit more grueling and to be honest, sometimes I just feel a bit like this:
|Just another day, trapped in the stocks at Kentwell Hall!|
So cheers to experiencing more cold, rainy weekends that don't tempt me to go outside and enjoy the summer as most people are do in June and July!
Cheers y'all, Lis
