Brilliant Jazz night…

What a great evening of talented playing of live music we had the privilege of listening to last night at The Sports Pavilion Ditchingham.

The band played so in tune with one another and they enjoyed it which is always a pleasure to experience when they have fun so do we as the audience…Lots of really good music so thank you all so much.

Rather a hot evening maybe have to get a fan in as the fire door was not available to be opened which left nearly all the band and us rather hot! 

A good crowd even though a lot of regulars were not there, but they missed a great night!

Thanks Chris for doing the raffle and for Jan helping me with the folding of the tickets our 'boys' should be back next week to take over again…

Heidi doing a good job behind the bar, sorry I forgot your birthday Heidi, best wishes to you.


A few photos…

Garden this morning in the sunshine…

Nice bit of sunshine and the flowers are coming into bloom, but so are the bugs!!!! Also the weeds so better get out there and get started.







Morning walk…

Had to go to the opticians this morning and the car park is down by the river, so thought I would take a couple of photos, lovely day, not such good news on eyes but a 6 month appointment instead of a year so a bit deflated…But the sun is shining and the garden awaits…

We are so lucky to have such a lovely walk here in Beccles…

Roy's Birthday…

Yesterday was a lovely day …lots of sunshine with a little breeze …when a party of us from Jazz went along to The Wherry at Geldeston to celebrate Roy's 80th birthday.

Roy has not been well of late so it was fingers crossed that he could come along, and thank goodness he could, it was nice to see him smiling, eating and chatting even if he may suffer later (hope not)

Janet who runs the pub has made a good job of making it friendly and sweet, nice bunting and old jugs hanging a real country feel, with a lovely courtyard, and garden she does good food as well. Her and her staff made us very welcome, she did not realise how many musicians were there, she would have like them to play!!! maybe we could have a jam session there?

So good of her to let me cut the birthday sponge up and whilst in the bar area found a gentleman ? who used to come to our old pub, so lots of memories as well chatting to him, I do hope Janet can make a real go of the place as it is a hard business nowadays, but she seems to be willing to take it all on, and it is not new to her as she has been a landlady before…one of my boys went for a meal the other night with friends and had a great meal, it turns out he mentioned me so had a nice chat about that. Once a barmaid always one I suppose!!!!

Well done JJ and the coven table so pleased to have been invited to help Roy enjoy his day, glad the wonky sponge tasted better than it looked!!!!Thanks for the compliments. Miss being able to do my catering and cakes but never mind. Thanks Jan for taking us sorry you could not have a drink!

Thanks to one and all and wasn't I good to not get the camera out? or was I? we do not like our photos taken but maybe should have taken one as it was such a lovely day. Thanks again.
