Last Saturday, I helped out at a Knit and Natter day at Kentwell Hall . Although Kentwell Hall is just down the road from where I live, I can only remember visiting once, probably at a similar time of the year as it was to see all the lambs. It was so foggy...

Spending a few days in the Netherlands to help my dad recover from an operation (all going well - I'm hoping to travel back to the UK in the next couple of days). Not had much chance for photography, what with work and hospital visits and catching up with f...

Almost two weeks ago, my life was completely turned upside down. I have thought long and hard about whether to say something on this blog, whether to take a break, whether to start afresh. I still don't know whether saying anything at all is a good thing or...

I still do bike rides, at least once a week. Every Sunday morning B. has race training at the dry ski slope in Norwich, and I come along and cycle for almost 3 hours. Getting up at 7.30am on a Sunday morning isn't always easy, but then when I ride out of th...

Last night was our Christmas get-together for my knitting group. We meet up once a month, taking it in turns to host, and we all bring something to eat. We start off with a nice meal, trying to stay fairly healthy since one of our members was diagnosed with...

I think I've mentioned my parttime dog in the past on this blog - I can't be bothered to scroll back to find if I have! (parttime dog belongs to my elderly neighbour who can't walk him anymore, so we take him for regular walks). He turned 15 in July and his...

After all the emotional upheaval of the last month or so, at some point it was bound to happen that tiredness would hit me. Apart from a few days' sick leave back in February and a day off work for dad's operation, I've carried on working. And although it's...

Earlier this week I agreed to meet up today with a friend from knitting group who has three dogs, and join her on her walk. Some fresh air never fails to make you feel better. As she doesn't live that far away from me, I thought rather than drive down to he...

In a fortnight where there was a little too much upsetting news for my liking (ageing parents...), the one thing that has kept me cheerful is our holiday cottage, that I mentioned in my last post. As I've mentioned on this blog before, B. lives in a house t...

Half term was taken up with a flying visit to Holland with the 12yo man. He loves going over, likes everything Dutch, starts speaking Dutch and this time even ordered his own drink in Dutch - I love seeing how his confidence grows. He's the perfect travelli...

O blimey, more than 2 months since my last post! I keep thinking about giving up the blog. I love Facebook and use it a lot. It feels like a point of contact with the outside world on days when I'm working from home - days which can get very isolated, even ...
