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…

Norfolk lambing day

As readers of my Blog will know I’m a great supporter of all things local – from arts and crafts to food.  One of the things I am particularly passionate about is supporting our local farmers and particularly those who rear their own livestock.  We are lucky to live in a county where there are…

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…

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. This evening there was a super harvest moon. We bolted our tea and rushed to see it rise orange and streaked with cloud,  from the village…

Three go mad in Reepham!

At the end of the summer holidays I had a fabulous reunion with two of my oldest and bestest friends – Cheryl and Philippa. Cheryl and I met at infant school where, for a while we hated each other, before finally becoming good mates. Philippa came on the scene at High school (the old and…

A Pandora’s Kitchen of delights!

A few weeks back I was tablet browsing the internet, tucked up in bed on a Saturday morning. I must admit to feeling a tiny bit the worse for wear as the night before we had been out for a great meal with friends at the Hingham White Hart, where the wine had flowed rather…

School’s out…

When you have children there are two ends to the year – one at the end of December – following days of over indulgence – and the other sometime near the end of July when the school year comes to a close. Nowadays we only have one of our offspring left at school as our…

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…
