A sad photo today. Our local pub called time for the last time on Saturday evening. It will be a big miss for all of us. I will miss lunch with my friends and fish & chips on a Friday (they did a marvellous take away service), my husband and son will miss meeting their friends on Friday evenings and my daughter's lost her holiday job! Remembering some good times.
This afternoon we visited the Mechanical Music Museum at Cotton. An Aladdin's cave of musical memorabilia. We listened to fairground organs, barrel organs, pianolas and musical boxes. Later we were entertained by a marvellous rendition on the mighty Wurlitzer theatre organ. A really enjoyable afternoon.
Steam on the East Suffolk Line. Oliver Cromwell - 70013 visited East Anglia today. I caught this photo at Westerfield station. A beautiful and majestic sight and one that evokes many memories of times gone by.
My daughter ordered this beautiful top online but when it arrived it was a little to big. To return it was rather expensive and involved a lot of hassle. Fifteen minutes with a needle and cotton and it fits perfectly!!
D & A's wedding today. The bride made and decorated this beautiful cake. Each little figure represents a member of the family or friend. A really super and memorable cake. All good wishes for your life together D & A.
A special bottle of Apple Juice. I bought this little luxury in Sandringham a few weeks ago. Apple Juice pressed from apples from the Queen's Orchards. It was such a warm and balmy day today that we decided to treat ourselves and have it with lunch. Ice cold - it was delicious!!
My latest book. A charming story about a group of people on the island of Guernsey after the Occupation in 1946 and their newly formed friendship with an author. The story is told in the form of letters between London and Guernsey.
I have always liked the paintings by L S Lowry and it was lovely to see the originals in the gallery. There are so many details in each picture and it was good to be able to take time to appreciate each one.
The lavender fields of Norfolk are at their best at the moment. The perfume as you pass by is wonderful - definitely time to open the car windows! We couldn't pass by without stopping at the Lavender Shop and Restaurant. A cup of tea and a lavender scone are not to be missed.
