A Happy Day At Pensthorpe in Norfolk.

My poor blog, it’s feeling very neglected at the moment.

It can’t be helped, sadly. I’ve been using all of my words (and time) to frantically try and finish my submission for the RNA New Writers’ Scheme before Freya finishes school for the summer on Tuesday.

To make up for lack of words, I’m sharing some pictures instead. We had a lovely day at Pensthorpe yesterday, including seeing their new Wetland Discovery area. It is always hard to convince Freya to leave the amazing play areas but even she couldn’t resist the beautiful flowers (and a butterfly or 50).

I hope you’re all keeping well.

I’ll be back!

A Celebration Of Colour At The Plantation Garden In Norwich.

IMG_5104 2With grey sky for the last few days, I felt a bit delirious to find myself not only under a brilliant blue sky but surrounded by colour on a visit to the Plantation Garden in Norwich – and I just had to share.

You can find out more about this hidden gem in the heart of the city in my previous posts here and here but I thought for this one I’d just share some photos. Hope you enjoy them.

If you happen to be in Norwich, the Plantation Garden, in Earlham Road, is well worth a visit (as is the cathedral next door). They are bringing back the outdoor cinema on certain dates in July and August (full info here) which I imagine would be a glorious experience.

I hope you’re having a colourful day too.

Is it just me who feels like I still have a Christmas hangover?

I just can’t seem to get started this year. My ‘to do’ list isn’t going down despite the fact I always seem to be rushing about. I’m wondering if I can just ignore January and start the year in February?

One good thing has been the light. I bought Freya some pink roses and I’ve glanced at them at different times of the day and “oohed” at how pretty they look in the winter light.

I hope you are having a more productive month than me! Having said that, I do have another Behind The Book interview ready for tomorrow. Please pop back and take a look.
