I couldn't see any of Obelixx's Photobucket pics. It said "please update your account to enable 3rd party hosting".

My sister and her OH have left, we had a lovely time together, talked a lot. She thinks our cottage is lovely. Yesterday we had a light salady lunch here, having chatted all morning then we went to this water garden, which was lovely. We saw a kingfisher. www.gooderstonewatergardens.co.uk/ In the evening we all went to our favourite local pub for dinner. They were surprised when we arrived as they had been there before when on a previous holiday.

Today we visited the village of Hingham where some of our ancestors are buried in the church, had a coffee in the tea room, looked round the antique shop. Then we went to Wyken Hall Gardens, wykenvineyards.co.uk/gardens/ had lunch there and started to look at the garden but it started to pour with rain, so my sister and her OH left, they thought it would be best to get to the Dartford Crossing before rush hour. OH and I looked around the gift shop.

I watched the last 2 episodes of Trust Me when we got back.

Going to read back over the last 2 days.

Went to visit an NGS garden this afternoon, but the rain tipped down, had to wait a bit in the car for it to ease off. Nice garden though and so was the chocolate cake. Then we looked at a couple more villages in Norfolk and stopped at a pub for a half on the way home.

I think Possum is lucky to have such a mother

That's good for the first year. Mine are well over, but there were several in flower at Bressingham Gardens.

Lovely blues. My camera isn't very good at blue.

Those chaps must be mad! My idea of hell, no good at heights.

I liked Liar and Bake-off. I wanted to watch Trust Me but missed it. If it's still available I'll watch it on Catch Up. Was it any good?

Morning all.

When I lived in England it was in the South, Surrey then Kent. I found people were friendly and we had lovely neighbors. Now I live in France and people are friendly on the surface if you speak to them but I have found it almost impossible to make real friends, apart from one but she moved up to Brittany when her husband retired. My friends in France are English.

Been busy so not had time to post. Went to Aylesbury on Monday. Saw OH's SIL, 2nd wife of the lovely man who was married to OH,s late sister. We went to his funeral at the end of July and his family have decided that she can't look after herself so she is in a home. So sad, she was happily living in a nice house with the man she loved and now he is gone and she in in a care home. She is very forgetful, though, now that she is 84.

My sister and her OH are coming to stay tomorrow for a couple of days. They haven't seen our cottage in Norfolk yet.

We are going to visit an NGS garden this afternoon, but rain is forecast.
