Out and about

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 –…

Yesterday my son Tom and I were working in Great Yarmouth providing film and photography for Opportunities Norfolk – an event offering advice, guidance and job opportunities for young people.  After we’d finished we took a wander into the town for a lunch of chips from the market – it’s all glamour in this business!  It was also…

Super clouds – super moon

It began this morning with another lovely later summer early morning walk.  The sky was bluer than blue with curious streaks and wisps of clouds trailing across the sky.

Forgotten images

Today my phone said it was full so I downloaded lots of photos – walking , food, random things…. Sometimes I feel that I’m drowning in images.  I have so many to sort for work and personal projects that it becomes overwhelming. I have recently had to sort some for an exhibition which I’m pretty…

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…

Greg James, Henry Moore and 50 years of the UEA

Back in September, when the sun was still shining and Christmas was just a distant twinkle, I went along to the UEA for their 50th anniversary celebrations. It was a glorious day and the campus was full of visitors of all ages taking part in a huge range of activities.  With me on the visit…

Summer’s end

As I type the realisation that summer really has ended is beginning to set it. Last night I cracked out my warm pyjamas and bed socks and it won’t be long before the winter duvet comes back out of the airing cupboard. Still we  can’t complain – we really did have a lovely summer for…
