Norfolk Show revisited

NORFOLK SHOW REVISITED NORFOLK SHOW REVISITED So today would have been the second day of the Norfolk Show – our county’s oldest and most wonderful show case. I have memories of the Norfolk Show going back to childhood, when we would all get days off school so that we could visit. My most prominent memories…

Lock down food

LOCK DOWN FOOD So how has lock down been for you? Or maybe you are still there – reluctant to venture out and face this rather uncertain new world. I know that I am. Like many people at the start of lock down, I was filled with lots of ideas of what to do with…

Walking pixels: 26 April

After the thunder and lightening and torrential rain of yesterday, today has a more sunshine and showers feel about it.  There was quite a lot of blue sky for my walk this morning – and more than the odd puddle.  It seems to be warming up a little bit too – but not quite enough…

April showers

Walking pixels: 24 April
