Today I had a hospital appointment. It was for a screening that is apparently given to everyone who is approaching 65, and is a test for an embolism in the abdomen. Continue reading 24th May 2017
A very hot day. I have to admit that with the heat I did very little today. We had lunch outside on the patio,,then I sat and read in the sun for a while. I tried to put out the patio umbrella to give some shade but somehow, over the winter it has broken, and although I tried to repair it, I could not find a screw small enough to fit.

Today was another day for working in the garden. The rain over the previous week had got the grass growing and the weeds had been growing like mad. Continue reading 22nd May 2017
A quiet Sunday. It started for me with ringing for the service at Shouldham, then back home to do some work in the garden.
We have bees in a bird box, and I decided to try and photograph them so that the species can be identified. It appears that they are Bombus hypnorum and should not be moved. I have to convince my neighbour of that as they are close to his summer house. Continue reading 21st May 2017
A big day for photography today. I have booked a workshop on photographing cacti and then on to a raptor centre to photograph the birds.
The cacti belong to a member of a photographic club who is displaying them especially for this workshop. He has hundreds of them, big and small. Many of them are in bloom. Most people are taking pictures of the flowers, but I am more interested in the patterns created by the spines, especially in close up. Continue reading 20th May 2017

Not a good day. Today is the day that I have t go to the funeral of an old friend and colleague.
I’ve worked with Steve sine the 1980’s when we both worked for the same company, Mobile Image. We worked there until the company was bought up by a competitor to for Visions Mobiles. At that stage we both went our separate ways. He became freelance whilst I stayed with the new company. After about a year I also went freelance and we worked together on several projects including The Bill live. Continue reading 18th May 2017
Quite a slow day. The weather is warm and humid, but it is very close to raining.
I got up late, having watched television into the early hours. Once again I went out into the garden, this time to plant the lavender bushes that I bought yesterday. Try as I might I could not find the planting trowel. I checked everywhere that I could think of, but it seems to have completely disappeared. Very strange. Continue reading 16th May 2017
