Norfolk again...

We went to Norfolk again, this time South Norfolk with M's family. The dog, the children, the sister and brother-in-law, the mother and father-in-law: they were all there. We stayed in  the 1590-built Manor Farm. It's one of the Landmark Trust buildings, a fine organisation whose properties we've stayed in before.

(Yes even old buildings need fire extinguishers, you never know what that young pup Howie B will get up to...)


Back home we watched the BBC4 programme about swing, loved the dancing.

Love is in the air...

It's been a great week for celebrations. Sunday Chinese New Year, Tuesday pancakes, Wednesday celebrating Little JR's birthday and last night Valentine's.

Cheeky fox for Little JR. 


M and I bought each other record presents, John Lennon and Yoko's 'Milk and Honey' and The Kinks 'Something Else by...'. You can listen to a track from each here and here . 

Some glorious sun today, snowdrops, pussy willow, hellebores, daffodils, 'Freckles' clematis and primroses in the garden. And today...ta the the start if half term, well after 3.45pm anyway.

More snow...

Some snow overnight and still going. Put me in mind of this song. Only a little reference to snow but any excuse to play The Specials...

Kung hei fat choi

Happy Chinese New Year to you all. Ate our lovely food whilst snow fell (is still). Made these felt fortune cookies from last month's issue of Mollie Makes whilst watching 'Cast Away' and 'Excalibur' this afternoon. Needed quite a lot of recovery time after an ace evening over at Curtis and Nichola's.
