Weird Norfolk Skies

I’m going to be very British and witter on about the weather.  What a weird day its been!  Awoke to torrential rain and so abandoned my usual morning walk.  By lunchtime we had sunshine and blue skies – by school pick up time there was all sorts of weather – rain, hail, rainbows and weird…

A bit of a catch up!

I have been working hard behind the scenes to give the Pixel Chef a bit of a make over hence the severe lack of posting of late. The good new is that I successfully complete the Dryathlon raising £230 for Cancer Research while the charity is looking at having raised nearly £5 million – which is…

Morning walk


The unveiling of spring

This week has been a mixed bag of weather. It started with the equinox on Monday which was cold and wet and miserable. But as the week has gone on the sun has taken over and slowly but surely things are warming up. As always I’ve been out walking every morning – taking the same…

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.  


That was September

Mists and mellow fruitfulness and all that jazz. Summer stayed for the whole of September with record temperatures and lots of blue skies. As I type October has arrived grey and wet and my sandled feet are cold…
