Thanks LG. My youth is the sixties and early 70s!

Best wishes to Wonky from me too.

Morning all. Sunny here.

Oh dear, I just don't keep up with music any more, but I had heard of The Cranberries. If ever I listen to music it's OH practicing for choir or Classical.

Well done Hosta for such a positive attitude.

Had a hot cross bun for brekkies, yum, not sold in France.

Watched probably more TV than is good for me in the last couple of days. I-Player doesn't work in France so I've been catching up on everything I've missed.

I don't really know who Regina is either, Dacha. Must have missed the post when Pat explained or memory is being sieve-like again.

We went to Diss today. I bought a couple of what they call "fat squares", pieces of cotton fabric for doing patchwork. Super sewing shop. Looked around Morrisons, had a cider and a snack in a pub.

Raining in Norfolk. Since Thursday, when we arrived, it's been mostly dry, bit colder yesterday.

Morning all.

Raining. I'll probably make another patchwork square for the church curtain. Don't know about OH, he's already put up the shelf he planned to put up in the utility room.

Hello everyone.

What a terrifying thing to happen to Hosta! I hope you can still enjoy the rest of your holiday despite that. At least it's not cold.

Thanks for the Cromer tips,Dove.

Good to hear from you, Topbird.

We went to see the pantomime of The Sleeping Beauty in Norwich today, very funny and lively. Had lunch at Côte Brasserie first.

Sorry you are suffering with the 'flu, Lily P. You said "Do I remember many forum members having a nasty bug last year? In fact did Punk not crack a rib coughing? It’s the coughing that’s the worst part. Anyone with any tips?" I had a dreadful cough bug this time last year, thought I'd cracked a rib but I'd torn the tissue encasing the ribs, very painful though, but healed quicker than an actual broken rib. Nothing really worked for the cough, unfortunately, except time.

We went to Cromer today, on the North coast. I thought it would be like a posh Great Yarmouth, but it wasn't. It was a small seaside town with no shops like M&S or chain restaurants. We had a light lunch and cups of tea in a tea room and a stroll about. We had thought of a bracing walk on the beach, but the tide was up so the sea was almost at the wall so there was no beach to walk on. Walked along the pier instead, that was pretty bracing. Much colder by the sea than in our inland village.

Morning all.

Thanks Joyce. It was a bit painful in the night, but only like you've bumped yourself. But I have chronic tendonitis in the other shoulder so hard to know which side to lie on!

Hello, from Norfolk. Journey yesterday was OK, apart from the usual accident on the A11. A lorry, a white van and 2 cars this time, hope they were OK.

We went to Tesco this afternoon, mostly for food. Such a huge choice of veg in English supermarkets and loads of yummy cakes and creamy things. Had to resist a lot.

Then I had the 'flu jab in Boots. I bled afterwards, he said they hadn't been taught to withdraw the plunger a little bit to make sure the needle wasn't in a blood vessel. It stung quite a bit, reminded me of a wasp.

Then GC on the way home to get some grease balls for the birds, buy 2 packs get one free, and violas - which they didn't have. The ones I planted in autumn have been eaten by something, but the ones I had last year were lovely and flowered for ages. Maybe they'll have some in B&Q.

Have been sewing patchwork squares in front of the TV, for the curtain we are putting in front of the church door to keep out the draft.

So sorry to hear about the farm shop, Dove. I hope your OH finds somewhere he would like to work soon.
