Just saying Hello

My Grape harvest ~ Tom is making some wine from them really looking forward to trying some of it ~ I said my Grape Harvest but Lyn looks after the vine so such a good crop is down to her
The Hornets nest had been build in a Blue Tits nesting box that we have on the workshop wall~ They are huge but we have been told unless we interfer with their nest they won't harm us ~
Russel took my computer to pieces and told me the new parts I needed ~ but when he put it back together it came on line and was working beautifully ~ I do have a new Key Board which is a present from Lyn ~ so I am back on line ~ (Thank Goodness )

Dick's Camera

I had to make a note of what happened with Dick's Camera ~ it is now over six years since he left us and we miss him so very much ~ I knew where the camera was but never thought about what may be hidden inside ~ Tom my Grandson realised there was a spool stilll inside the camera so suggested we take it to the shop and get it developed ~ so we took it to a shop in Fakenham I never thought for one moment that it could still be developed ~ the man in the shop had difficulty removing the spool and told us the camera was broken ~ I suppose after six years of just laying around it had deteriorated ~ so I had little hope of any of the pictures coming out ~

The following week we returned to Fakenham and Tom went into the shop to pick the pictures up ~ I fully expected none of them to come out ~ But they did ~ each and everyone of them even some that Tom had taken to finish up spool up ~

They were mostly of the Grandchildren they were just babies but it was so good to see them and there was one of Dick and myself sitting on the Sofa celebrating one Christmas ~

You can imagine how pleased we were ~ Tom and I stood outside the shop looking at the pictures ~ we were just so pleased and happy I cannot tell you how pleased we both were ~

It was like having him back ~ I wonder if he planned this for us so long after he left us ~ I like to think he did ~

There was one very Happy Wife Daughter and Grandson ~ who could have thought such a small thing could bring so much happiness ~

A nice day at Wolterton Hall


We had a lovely day out at Wolterton Hall today ~ they had a Textile day there and it was really very interesting ~

But it was the other stalls that I was interested in ~ and the Alpaca's I could willing take one of them home with me ~  they are just so cute ~

There were Basket making ~ Jewellery making ~ and all sorts of other stalls as well as food ~ I had the biggest piece of Sponge Cake and I did manage to eat it all :o)  with no difficulty :o)

The Children were doing Pond Dipping ~ putting a net into the pond and inspecting what they had brough out ~ there were Newts and something called water boat men ~ they were little bugs that looked like a boat with oars ~ really very interesting ~ and blood worms ~ you would not believe the things they got out of that pond :o)

The weather wasn't too bad either considering the bad weather we have been having ~  so it was a very pleasant day ~ We invited Roy our neighbour to join us as he lives on his own and just recently had to have his beloved Dog Brandy put to sleep as he had been very ill ~ then when we got home he joined us for dinner ~

Lyn had prepared a casserole before we wentout so it was ready when we got home ~ and it was delicious all that fresh air had made us all hungry :o)

Has Summer Gone already



It has been so long since I made an entry in my journal I hardly remember what to do :o)

One thing I forgot to mention was that I got my hearing back after I had seen the practioner nurse who kindly cleared my ears for me ~ it was awful not being able to hear properly ~

I had a wonderful time staying with my Sister Joy she is such a JOY to be with it is true what they say about Sisters they are always there for you ~ when I had Cancer she was there for me fighting for me in my corner ~ making sure I did not give up ~  

We didn't get out much but had lot's of visitors ~ as she lives in the heart of Norwich all the family calls in at some time during the week ~

So it was nice to catch up with everyone ~

We did find the owners of those two little dogs and they came and collected them and were so happy to have them back ~ to tell the truth I would have loved to keep both of them ~ they were a delight :o)

I am preparing to go visit my Sister Joy ~ we always spend some time together over the Summer Holidays ~ she lives in the heart of Norwich so there are lots of shops that we can visit ~ theatres and cinemas we can visit  so should be a fun packed week or so ~ 

When I went last year I could not contact my Blog so I hope this year I will be able to keep in contact ~ I will try :o)

But if not I will be back a week on Thursday  ~ I shall turn off my alerts but will get back as soon as I can ~ I know I shall miss you all ~
