Friends and Fireworks on a Rooftop

I’ve never much celebrated Guy Fawkes night. As a kid I remember standing (sitting) around waiting no end of time for something that lasted just a few minutes.  That was when there were bonfires, do these things still have bonfires or is that another thing health and safety stole? Anyway I’d be freezing my driving… Continue reading Friends and Fireworks on a Rooftop

Invisible Cities – Having A Disability In Norwich

Something a little different from me today. I was invited to take part in an Invisible Cities Linkup crested by Sheryl of A Chronic Voice.  This brilliant idea from Sheryl invites people from all over the world to share stories and information about what it’s like living in their city with a disability or chronic… Continue reading Invisible Cities – Having A Disability In Norwich

Chocolate High Tea – The Assembly House Norwich

So I went to another afternoon tea. Kind of. The Assembly House Norwich were putting on a one evening only ‘Chocolat High Tea’, so obviously I had to go. I have spelt that right, the missing e isn’t missing. This high tea was chocolate themed to complement the movie Chocolat that would be showing after… Continue reading Chocolate High Tea – The Assembly House Norwich

Bums and Bubble Tea – Latitude Festival

You’ll know by now I love a festival, and Latitude Festival is by far my favourite. It’s magical, eclectic, arty and fairly civilised. I attended again this year for the 7th year in a row. I’ve raved about (in written form, I am not much of a raver in the other sense) Latitude Festival before… Continue reading Bums and Bubble Tea – Latitude Festival

An Afternoon Tea Of Wizardry – The Assembly House Norwich

The Assembly House in Norwich is one of my favourite places to go for afternoon tea. In fact it’s probably one of my favourite places to go for a brew or lunch or cake. It’s a grand Georgian building in the middle of a busy city. It feels like another world. It’s beautiful gardens, elegant… Continue reading An Afternoon Tea Of Wizardry – The Assembly House Norwich

Summer Holidays and Cinema Let Downs

Schools out (17 years ago for me), it’s the summer holidays. You’ve probably noticed the rise in little people running around. During the summer holidays I like to spend some time with my nieces, also we are a source of childcare. Just because school stops it doesn’t mean other jobs do too. As I’ve said… Continue reading Summer Holidays and Cinema Let Downs

Parrots, Football and Time Travel – Pleasurewood Hills

It was the Saturday when England played football. The game of the World Cup where England were doing better than they had done in... I don’t know how long... because I didn’t really care. They were doing well though and everyone was having barbecues or going to the pub. It’s been hot you see, we… Continue reading Parrots, Football and Time Travel – Pleasurewood Hills
