Morning all. Hope it's dryer today. Had to change our plans on Wednesday. Were going to explore other villages near where we bought our cottage (well not quite bought yet, waiting for solicitors), but poured so much we went and looked at retail parks round Norwich instead.

We explored Norwich yesterday, lovely town. Saw some gorgeous curtain materials and a huge emporium with secondhand furniture in it, some nice some awful, but good value.

What a lot of gorgeous colour you all still have. My garden has looked rather sad since the severe frosts and -4 that we had early in October. Autumn trees are lovely though

Evening all. Have arrived in Diss. Going to see our (hopefully) cottage tomorrow.  Plane left an hour late but arrived with a fast and bumpy landing almost on time. No fog. But there was an accident on the A road on the way.

OH is asleep so managed to prize the iPad out of his hands!

Planting a Rambling Rector

Beautiful, but you've trained it well - bit more than letting it do it's own thing.

Morning all. Going to a meeting this morning. Preparing housesitter's room, tidying and packing this afternoon.

Ouch, Hosta, sounds painful and smelly.

Daughter 2 and family have gone. We shall watch TV quietly tonight and eat the rest of the sausage rolls and pizza. Strictly results, canals and Downton.

Tomorrow morning I'm going to a meeting near Riberac. Tuesday we are off to Norfolk.

This evening I found some papers in a drawer in the study that my mother gave me. Family trees and written notes all about her family, mother and father. They all came from East Anglia, apart from a French Huguenot that one of them married. It was interesting, a great (maybe 2 greats) grandfather was Mayor of Norwich near the end of the 19th century.
