David and Me…

This morning I drove to David's who took me into Norwich we had a lovely morning, thanks Son it was all great…Hope you all have a good morning tomorrow…

Would have liked to do the Dragon walk but it takes a long time, have taken a couple of Dragon photos but cut the nose off one of them! The little girl was so sweet sitting on the edge , lovely to see the children enjoying them.

What lovely weather after all the rain and wind, a beautiful day, got some lovely fresh veg off the market, we wandered into loads of shops, especially book ones!! Wish I had bought the crab, you were right. Lovely buskers as well…

Had some great food…pity I got stuck behind a Combine Harvester and a Tractor, on the way home, but for a change everyone was behaving well, apart from a few motorcyclists, who disregard the speed limit, no wonder they say 'think bike'!





SoleBay Band with friends

Thursday night at the Jazz was very good… lots of different music and loads of laughter and fun as well as some very talented playing and singing from the band members…We are so lucky as I say all the time, to be able to have live music without paying an entrance fee.

A couple of really good solos from Tim, and then from Ray on the piano accompanied by Tony and Craig… as I said some great playing from them all… Tony P sang some good songs and brought some laughter as well, Allan sang one , and Simon oh some great ones Simon again.

Lovely crowd if towards the end rather a loud one, sad when people want to listen however cannot help it I suppose,  we enjoyed it at the front…and to be among friends is just great. Miss you June hope the wrist improves quickly…  for all who are a bit under the weather hurry back and get well soon.

Thanks to Keith who got us a nice lot of prizes and who although unwell Sheila and him come along every week, we do appreciate it Keith, hope you have some good days soon…Thanks to all who contributed to the raffle it is appreciated as all helps to bring these fine musicians to us. We have some very different line ups coming along so keep watching here…

Thanks to one of Jon's daughters for helping with the bar, while our Heidi celebrated her Wedding Anniversary…

A few photos…I should concentrate more I think …but they are rather spread out for my little camera, I was offered for a lift up onto the bar so I could get them all in…but………

Fox and Goose!

Great lunch time yesterday, thanks to my 2 Sons and Dawn, for the rest of my birthday treat.

The Fox and Goose is a lovely place to go to and the meals were as always …great.

We had a good laugh ( hope the other folk did not mind the noise) when one gets the giggles it is hard to stop. Thanks you three had a wonderful time.

My photos were not good,  David sent me one of his, it was very sunny when we arrived for our meal should have taken the photos then as it got very windy and dull later, I am always taking others photos as hate them of me, but David did not do a bad job with one of them so will risk putting it on here.

Lovely old building

The boys after they had paid! ha ha

Phil Dawn and me! it was windy weather…
Had to add this one even though photo blurred, as I said it was very windy weather…

David Dawn and me…

Wedding

On Saturday I was invited to my great niece's wedding …Rachael and Stuart are a lovely couple, they wanted a simple wedding with a few family and friends, and they certainly got a beautiful dream day.

Everything that could be was natural and very down to earth, vintage as it could be …so wonderful, I said it was like a fairy wedding  in a woodland setting. The Sunflowers were a great touch.

Thank you for inviting me I would not have liked to miss seeing you two wed ,with that lovely service and the music the lady played on her piano was a wonderful touch of class.

The Bridesmaids were gorgeous, in fact it all was everything you could have wish for.

All the family pulled together to produce some great flowers/ food/ music/drinks… and it went so smoothly, I wish you both a  wonderful married life, you deserve it.

I am looking forward to the photos that Sophie took, I cannot resist just putting a couple that I took on here.

I thought this showed the ethereal feel of the day
two lovely people joined together.

The cake cutting…

Mike. Emily. Rachael .Katie. Claire
Beautiful people…
