A whirlwind trip to London

A few weeks ago my daughter Reya  and I headed out of the sticks for a whirlwind visit to London. The main purpose of our trip was a gig at the Brixton O2 to see Tom O’Dell (my daughter is a huge fan and I’d bought her tickets back in the early summer on the day…

Foggy Halloween sunrise

It was one of those beautiful ethereal mornings today – with the dew hanging off cobwebs and the sun gradually burning through the heavy fog.  Every where I looked there were photos! As usual on my morning walk all of the photos below were taken on my mobile phone.

Shopping, eating and drinking in lovely Norwich!

My daughter and I took a little shopping trip out to Norwich today. We did the usual things – the malls and the big chain stores which were mostly mayhem. However, what I really love about Norwich are the independent shops and cafes. To start with we gave Costa a miss and headed to the Bicycle…

#shakespeare400

With all the Shakespeare talk that’s been going on this week in the run up to the 400th anniversary of his death, I’ve been trying to remember when I saw my first ever live Shakespeare. I’m fairly confident it was when I was at 6th form and our English group went on a trip to the…

Tsunami cloud over Norfolk

Once again here I am Blogging about the weather! This morning I set of for my walk under brilliant blue skies and just a few wispy clouds in to sky.  However behind me I could see the approach of a really dramatic weather front which looked dark and ominous.  Over the course of my 40…

Where is spring?
