I'm Back

                  

Good Afternoon everybody this is my second try at an entry today the first one got lost in the transfer from front page don't know why so i will just have to start again good practice for my typing skills.  We got back yesterday from our 1500 mile trip at about 2pm. The weather as you will know was very bad pelting rain when we left Brancaster Staithe at 4 15am and continued till we reached Newcastle then it stayed try till we got home.  Its dry again today so washing out blowing on line all I have to do now is the ironing.  House has been tidied by both of us so things are about back to normal.  we had a great holiday great weather no rain from the first Sunday till yesterday and now a cloud literally from the first Monday till Friday.  Can't ever remember the sky being so cloudless for so long before.  With the weather being so good it does stop great bird watching seems daft to say that but birds love to sit and sleep in the sun just like us. We did pay a visit to Sandringham and we were so impressed with the grounds and the Church St Mary Magdelene's on the estate you know the one the Queen visits at Christmas with all the family. It is small but is so beautiful inside.  We were not allowed to take pictures inside I would liked to have let you see it. I was not able to say bye before we left as we had a leek in our hot water supply on the Friday evening and it caused great panic but we did get it all sorted our thanks to our great plumber.  Still feeling tired today even with going to bed a 9pm last night but should feel better tomorrow.  Have been trying to catch Big Brother but Stuart can't stand it so I just get a peek when he goes out of the room will have to try to work something out as I don't want to start W.W. 3 if you get my meaning.  Hope you are all well and I will try to catch up soon and tell you some more of the Adventures of J & S on holiday and show you my pictures and have I got a puzzle for you.  Love to you all, alerts now back on so ding my dinger.

 With thanks to D's Design for top graphic and Sara for the butterfly.

Glad you enjoyed your  holiday  DESPITE the good weather!!  Just back from a garden centre that has its large restaraunt by a lake and is situated in the country. We enjoyed sitting there with the ducks waddling about looking for scraps and tiny birds nipping on and off the table looking for crumbs. It seems ages since I saw anything other than crows and blooming seagulls!!!  Seagulls are such a nuisance with droppings everywhere and the noise .  Give me cute little wrens and robins everytime.  Eve

Welcome back! glad you had a great time.I remember Sandringham as a child, as I was born in Norfolk. Mum's father was the rector at Saxlingham and another little village near there. Strange to think birds sleep in the sun like us, but they are very noisy at dawnbreak..lol
