Moody Monday… but not that Blue

Moody Monday

Beach Huts at Wells Next the Sea, Norfolk

Monday… another week will soon pass, taking us a little closer to summer and the potential for lazy days on the beach.

Just dreaming again…..  After a rather fabulous April, the start of May looks rather different.  With a rather dire weather forecast for today and maybe the week you have to dream of those better days

Even if you are dreaming….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

Flippant Friday…….. What Came First


Whilst on a walk, on along forgotten summer walk in the Norfolk countryside, I came across this old, but rather grand, Flintstone Stable Block…….  and I did ponder as to what came first, the Stable or the Tree.  Has to be the Stables..hasn’t it.

Whatever it is you are pondering this Friday….Please

 Remember ….

The Old Mill by the Stream….

The-Mill-by-the-StreamGracing the bridge and stradling the River Burn is the 18th century Water Mill at Burnham Overy, Norfolk.

The Mill itself was built in 1790 but the bridge pre-dates the Mill.  The Mill became the centre of a quite large rural industrial complex of stables, blacksmiths workshop and other agricultural trades.  All now long gone….but the Mill, which is a National Trust Property,  provides some self catering accommodation.

Despite being on a busy road, it is still a rather idyllic location and can conjure up images of an earlier life.

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
