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.

Yes thanks, Lily P. The village hairdresser has a new manager so change of staff. But haircut is great.

We went for a walk in a local wildlife fen this afternoon, quite sunny. Then went to a local village pub and the girl who washed my hair this morning was the bar girl in the pub. Nice girl.

Morning all.

Having my hair cut too, but in the village.

How's your cold Dove? Must be better as you are planning on going out. What gallery is that?

Very windy last night, and it rained, but the sun has come out now.

Plumber came, late, but in time for us to go out to lunch. Enjoyed lunch, beef stew and dumplings, veg, then Pavlova. Went for a walk afterwards, gets dark so early. Being north of Dordogne darkness arrives half an hour earlier, at least, in Norfolk, then there is the hour's time change so it's 1 1/2 less daylight time in Norfolk compared with Dordogne.

Morning all.

Two hours gentle gardening sounds like progress, punkdoc, not long ago you were in bed.

I don't make Christmas cake or pudding anymore, did when the family lived at home. I just buy a small pudding at the church Christmas fair.

Dove said "get my ears lowered". Are you having plastic surgery Dove?

We arrived at our Norfolk cottage last night, via Sainsbury's. The boiler was a bit slow to start, but it did eventually so we had heating and hot water, but this morning it packed up. Waiting for the boiler man, said he was coming at 10am but he's now late. We are going out to lunch with friends at midday.
