A Day Trip..

We set off early on a sunny Sunday morning, on what is now, our annual trip to Sandringham, with the intention of picking apples and stocking up on cider and fruit juice. On arrival it soon becme clear the PYO farm was closed and all the apples had been picked! Apparently it has been a bad year and the farm was only open for a fortnight this year, so we stocked up with ready picked apples, cider and fruit juice from the Sandringham shop and carried on driving up the coast road, through all the pretty Norfolk villages, through Wells-next-the-Sea and past the Blakeney turn to our lunch destination. We took the track from the road that leads to Wiveton Hall Farm Shop and Cafe...




We sat outside on this occasion, as we had our dog Ruby with us, lunch was delicious (all homemade, using local and fresh produce) and served on Emma Bridgewater crockery. We purchased jams and chutneys, aswell as some plants from the farm shop and took a little walk around the grounds...
 









I really love the photo of the cottage and the pigs! All my photo's are of outdoors, I didn't feel comfortable asking to take photo's of the interior whilst people were eating, but if you like colour, like me, it really is a joy! Lots of pink and lots of cake....more info can be found here
 
Highly recommended if you are in the area
 
Have a lovely weekend!

Away from home...

This week I had an unexpected stay in hospital for the second time in six months, nothing too serious, but after the second night I was ready to return home and my thoughts turned to the things I miss most from home, obviously my family and our lovely dog Ruby, (she always makes me feel very special on returning home) but the things that make a home, the view from the windows, the warm fire on a cold evening, your own bed! and






popping a side lamp on when the dark nights pull in...
















Enjoying special pictures and prints...


 















 
Special ornaments, I love these!

















 
Our kitchen...
 
And although on returning it wasn't as I had left it, (family life runs riot without Mum) it is very nice to be back home!
 
Enjoy your weekend!
