Another writer's home

We're still on our travels - which is partly why I've not been online as much as usual. The other reason is that I've been busy writing, but I'm having trouble convincing people of that one ...

Anyway, here are some photo's of Rudyard Kipling's home.

That is his actual (reassuringly untidy) desk.

Oh, nice! Thanks for sharing. It's fascinating to see how/where other writers live(d).

What a great house to visit. The outside is too cool. Almost like he was living in the jungle.

Was that Bateman's you were visiting? I've never been but my husband and daughter have.

Henry Mitchell said...

a tidy desk is an idle desk.

Teresa Ashby said...

What a beautiful house and the desk - oh the lovely untidy desk :-) xx

Lovely house, and so reassuring to see the untidy desk. :)

That looks such a beautiful home and must have been inspiring!

Looks as if it's a great place to visit, Patsy.

Susan A Eames said...

That's a beautiful house - and yes, what a reassuringly untidy desk! :)

Maggie May said...

It always puzzles me why being untidy is a virtue. Just saying.

Hi human, Patsy,

Have fun on your travels. Rudyard's house is very nice. My humans and I live about three miles away from Rudyard Lake. Rudyard was named after the lake because his parents loved the location so much.

Pawsitive wishes,

Penny!

Ooh gorgeous! I love all the greenery on the walls.

Patsy said...

It is, Linda.

Patsy said...

It's beautiful, Alex.

Patsy said...

Will do, Mac.

Patsy said...

Yes, it is, Rosemary.

Patsy said...

That's true in my case, Henry.

Patsy said...

It's a lovely place to visit, Teresa.

Patsy said...

They are, Neil.

Patsy said...

It is, Oscar.

Patsy said...

Apparently the piles of scrap paper aren't quite accurate as he destroyed them.

Patsy said...

Seeing how many books he wrote has inspired me to get a move on, Rosemary.

Patsy said...

It is, Jan.

Patsy said...

It's beautiful, Susan.

Patsy said...

I don't think it's actually a virtue, Maggie. I just find it reassuring that tidyness isn't an essential quality for a writer - as it's not one of my strong points.

Patsy said...

I didn't know that, Penny! Thanks for telling me.

Patsy said...

I do too, Leandra.
