Sea Palling-13

I must go down to the sea again!

Here is a little photo story from last week! We finally made it to the beach and got to swim in the sea! It was one of those lovely, warm, late summer days that feel like a real bonus – particularly in these dark COVID days. Our go-to beach of choice has always been Wells,…

Blueberry and banana cake

As lock down went on we were very happy to be able to get regular home deliveries – mostly from Sainsburys. This was a little tricky to start with – sometimes logging on past midnight to secure a slot as they became available! Luckily things have calmed down a bit and it’s normally pretty easy…

Spicy pear chutney (23 of 25)

Spicy pear chutney

We have a glut of pears at the moment – a result I think of this fantastic spring and summer! Sadly the pears have rarely been very tasty over successive years so I always have to find something else to do with them rather than just eating as a fruit. A couple of years back…

Lemony pheasant

  As I type the house is filling with the lovely lemony smell of this fab but simple dish! In case you’re wondering the photos you see here are of a previous incarnation – known in the trade as one that I made earlier! Being a Norfolk country girl pheasant has always been a favourite…

Blustery morning walk

I have got out of the habit recently of going for my morning walk and I woke up this morning realising just how much I had missed it! I don’t mind admitting that I was in a bit of a grump yesterday – it has not been an easy week and I was generally feeling…

Snow walk-10

A visit from the beast from the East!

I suspect like me you are very bored of hearing about the snow and the beast from the East! However as I type the big thaw is already well underway and it is feeling much warmer in our cold old house! Over the snow days we managed to get out for a few 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…
