Birthday Weekend…

A lovely weekend of fun… presents…cards…food…friendship…family…

My birthday this year has been rather special, so thank you one and all …for you know who you are…Getting older, but hopefully only on the outside! still young in my head…

Yesterday Jan took me for lunch, and visiting garden centre etc, we then went for a nice drive , to end up at the Tally Ho Teashop! always a pleasure to visit, so changed nowadays from when the Sole Bay Jazz played there, nowadays very back in time, and very nice… scones, jam, and clotted cream and tea for two, thanks Jan.

Today David drove me to The Fox and Goose a very very nice restaurant …The sun was shining after thinking it was going to be a rainy day. Have changed my photo thanks for taking it David, should have let you loose on the photoshop…


This is the back of the building it really was lovely… 

Phil and Dawn were there to meet us (one of their birthday treats for me) with her Sons, Tom and Pete, what great boys such a fun lunch, and wow very tasty indeed, certainly a great place to eat, very tasty. Thank you staff for the birthday candle!

Hope the house hunting went well you four!  looking forward to you all being settled.

Thanks again for everything…Love you all lots…

Sole Bay Jazz Band…

What a great crowd of people to come and support the Sole Bay Jazz Band last night at the Sports Pavilion Ditchingham…

After a terrible storm which I thought would keep a lot of folk away, the evening turned out very pleasant both in the weather and the music so …Thank you Sole Bay…


Simon Denny came along and gave us some great vocals… and several really wonderful solos were heard from the others…We also had a member of the audience to play harmonica, very nice thank you who ever you were did not catch the name…but see I caught you on camera!

Thank you Lisa you did a good job for Heidi, hope you enjoyed it…

My camera ( or is it me) played up so not as many photos as I actually took that I can put on here.


However the music and the fun between the band made for a great evening.

Thank you all for the cards and birthday wishes…Thanks Jan for taking us and for some of the goodies…

Alistair and Lemon Curd…

I am not sure whether I have put Alistair with his lemon curd on the blog before, but over the years of following his progress as a great singer songwriter, we his fans have always been aware that he is a very down to earth young man, who amongst his many talents, has always made lemon curd for the local fete…

Last year after many years he won! Yesterday the judging took place and he did not win… sad but he will try again next year…

After all he has written The Road and performed with Kimberley Walsh, produced a new album, cycled many miles for Cancer charity… all this year…you cannot win them all… Well done Alistair…

Alistair's lemon curd


This years tasting by Alistair!

Last years winning cup!

Roy's night…

Well that was very  a very different night of music… as well as the list below, we had 2 trombones joining  in and Simon Denny singing, (very nice Simon)!

Not all jazz but a mixture, and not sure they had a list!  ha ha sorry Roy! …seemed to be a lot of 'what shall we play' in between the music, but it was hot for them, and the lights are bright over the band…… but  all in all a good night…so thanks guys …

So with Roy…Simon…Barry…Peter…and Jenny (thanks Jenny liked them) we had another 'lots of singing night'…

Peter played his usual great guitar… Ian and Roy on their Saxs …Tony on his string bass, Barry, we missed the Moon Dance that him and Simon sings… another time maybe…but great piano playing…Dave drumming and nice smiles…

We were so surprised when we walked in nice and early to find a lot of folk already there, so another change of seats for some of us, several new people as well as the regulars. Seems we will have to get there even earlier to get seats! But of course great that people turn out for the live music…

But it was a very hot night and the doors were not all open… so a nice walk around the grounds in the interval, brought 4 of us 'gals' having a go on the sports equipment… ha ha that was a giggle…thanks you know who!

Thanks Heidi for your hard work, and have a lovely holiday we will miss you…

I think it is back to the Sole Bay Jazz next week will put it on when I receive the list from Alan.

Thanks to everyone…
