1.Soft - Cassie



2. Two - tea caddies



3. Blur - through the front room window



4.In Season - wind damage



5. In my bathroom - also two - toothbrush/toothpaste mugs



6. Mess - Poulshot farm



7. Information - wine label



8. Company - Alex popped home for a pre-birthday meal



9. Warning - on Cherhill Down



10. Odd - false windows painted onto the outside of the building, on top of the originals, which were filled in when a window tax was introduced by William III in 1696. Many houses in Devizes are like this, it was a prosperity tax, as it was supposed that it was the more wealthy people who owned larger houses, thus more windows, and who could afford to pay more taxes. Perhaps I should mention this to George Osborne?



11. In the Distance - northwards from Cherhill Down



12. Entrance - to Brownstone House in New Park Street, Devizes
