Fabulous photos. Glad you are still having a good time, Chicky.

After church we went to a village called Hingham where they were having a crafts fair. OH bought me a pretty apron as I don't have one at the cottage. We had bacon butties and hot chocolate for lunch there and the village school children sang carols. Then we went to the monthly antiques fair that they have in another hall. There was some lovely silver but it was rather expensive.

Hingham church is where some of my ancestors are buried under black slabs in front of the alter.

Thank you, Dove. When we are next in Norwich I'll try Maplins, I know where it is, I just didn't know where to buy one. Any chance of seeing you?

Strictly is back!

I agree with SG Lily, as usual!

Think Susan should go.

Morning all.

Frost here, but not as white and sparkly as yesterday.

Yes thanks,GWRS. Watched Strictly, ate a stir fry.

really irritating, my camera turned itself on in my bag and has run out of battery. I left the charger in France.

Thank you Aunty Rach, I'll have a look.

We went to the craft sale this morning in the village hall and I left the cake I won yesterday. One of our friends was selling his paintings, hadn't realised he was such a good artist, he said his father was an artist. I bought an oil painting of the village church that he'd painted. We had brekkies there, bacon buttie for mean and cheese scone for OH.

Then we went to look around the small market town of Loddon which was having it's farmers' market. Bought some milk, cheese, pork fillet, bavette steak (much cheaper than in France), a partridge pie, fresh dug carrots and cavallo nero. Never cooked cavallo nero before. Must look it up. Walked around the town and looked at the boats on the south end of the Broads. Freezing cold so had hot chocolate in front of the fire in the village pub.

Morning all.

Like at Dove's, frost and sun, well we aren't that far away.

Been to the village hall to deliver the cake that I won last night for "guess the weight". The sale opens at 10am so we'll be going back. Haven't had brekkies as there will be bacon butties there, but the rolls hadn't yet arrived. It all looks bright and busy.

We had a good day. Went to Harleston and Beccles for a look round and OH had his hair cut.

The murder mystery evening was great fun. We had a glass of bubbly to start with and the cast of the mystery joined us and introduced themselves as their parts in it. During the meal they acted out the tensions between them, and the story, which was about 2 sisters and who was going to own the antique shop when one of them retired. There were 3 murders and the actors dropped clues as they acted their parts. Our table thought there were 2 murderers and I thought one of them was not the one that the others thought. The answer was that a sister did it, I was wrong but she was one of the two that the rest of the table thought. I thought she was too obvious.

I won the Christmas cake in the tombola. Can't take it back on Ryanair so I'm donating it to the church bazaar tomorrow for a guess the weight of the cake competition.

Morning all.
I use Promesse des Fleurs, Obelixx, but have no room for anything else. Still haven't planted out all the plants I bought this year.

Going out exploring this morning, passing by a village where there is a barber that OH likes. His hair is getting tatty and we are going out to a murder mystery evening and dinner tonight.
