A Living, Breathing, Working Castle

Arrived safely on Thursday evening in Northumberland county and have been hosted by my dear friend and colleague Mr. John Robertson. The highlight of this trip thus far, was spending the day along side the Master Butler Mr. Robertson in a real working castle for the day. I learned, I laughed and I am the luckiest man in the world, as this is a true treat and rare opportunity for that I am eternally greatful.

For those of you who know me well, my first stop and most exciting stop was the laundry department of the castle. It produces incredible volume, quality and a true professional laundress works there.

The four staterooms took my breath away, but to be most truthful, my heart and passion was the inner workings of the back of the house! Thank you Mr. Robertson for this incredible opportunity and your most gracious hospitality over the past two days.
