This week’s word prompts are the letter M, Favourite and Work and I am joining Friday’s Hunt and Weekend Reflections to this post. Today I cover 2 National Trust Properties, the first images taken at The Argory in the East Hall and at the end of this post, me as I start in my new tee shirt to WORK during the whole weekend at Mount Stewart at a big event called ‘Conversations’.
This room lead off the West Hall and was not very big however there were plenty of MIRRORS with lots of REFLECTIONS as Edith Stafford, our guide gave us a wonderful insight into the history of the families who lived in this home. Once again,, I leave you to pick a FAVOURITE..

This is the view as we look back through the
archway into the West Hall entrance.
This is a little room like a conservatory off the East Hall where the family came and sat in.
The National Property at Mount Stewart, Newtownards had a MASSIVE and MEMORABLE event over the whole weekend called Conversations where they had a fantastic series of very eminent speakers and performers taking part. There were over 100 volunteers and all the staff that helped make this event so successful. We all were asked to wear this tee shirt, with a smile, and a great attitude, we all were ‘Happy To Help’.
These shots above were taken at 8.00 am on MY way into WORK on the second day. That day I was in the ‘Green Room’ where all the speakers and artists congregated and we looked after them, serving them with refreshments and seeing that they got to the place they were to speak or perform on time. The first day, I was on a path outside the Coach House and as all visitors, speakers and artists passed on their way into Mount Stewart, my job was to welcome them and direct them to where they had to go.
I hope you enjoyed seeing a bit more from The Argory.
Many thanks for visitng and also to all who leave comments.
