Golden hour photo shoot

I’ve lost my way a bit with blogging of late.  I’ve lots of ideas but most stay either on my PC or in my head! My son Tom is home from Uni at the moment and yesterday we had a really great sunset after a lovely sunny day. We made the most of it by rushing…

Slow you down…

After a cold, wet and generally dismal weekend it was lovely to see the return of the sun yesterday morning. The first task of the week was to drop my daughter off at Gressenhall Museum for her first day of work experience and then on to Sheringham for a PR shoot for my very up and…

That was May

It’s the 1st of June although you wouldn’t know it.  My Facebook feed is full of picture of friends flaming woodburners! The year is flying by and May was certainly a busy month… On my morning walks I saw buzzards, a heron, swallows and swifts and heard a cuckoo (walking in Cuckoo Lane). My son came back…
