A visit to the Om yoga show in London!

Back in June my friend Tracey and I won third prize in the Blossom and Yarn Knitting festival raffle. Sadly it wasn’t enough to retire on but we decided to put aside our winnings and spend it on something we could both enjoy! One of the interests we have shared over time has been yoga…

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…

Advent: 2nd December – snakes alive!

Today was my birthday! I won’t say how old I now am – but the clue is in the title of this post! I had a lovely evening – we went to see Mockingjay part one in Norwich and then on for some tapas. Luckily the horrible drizzly rain that had been with us all…

That was October

October came and went so quickly – it certainly was a strange month in terms of the weather with temperatures in the 20s some days. When the sun wasn’t shining we had some amazing skies and a couple of very dramatic storms. Last week was half term and we went on a mini road trip…

Mediterranean Lincoln

So after four months at home for the summer today was the day to take our son Tom back to university in Lincoln. In all honesty it seems like he has been home forever – and it’s often hard to imagine that he ever went away. The summer has certainly had its high points –…
