Today is my birthday and the last day of this diary. I have written it for a whole year although a couple of days are missing and my intention to illustrate every day with a photograph proved fruitless, not least as a result of illness over the winter. Nevertheless, I more or less made a full year.
P. decided that we should go out for the day. So we headed up to the North Norfolk coast. We stopped for a celebration meal at Cookies Crab Shop in Salthouse where I had a real luxury Lobster salad. Continue reading 14th June 2017
Today we went to P’ s son’s house as in a couple of days were are looking after their baby daughter as they are both working that day. Continue reading 13th June 2017
Today was quite a hard day. I have to go back to the hospital to have another biopsy. This time it is on a spot on my ear. It has been erupting in hard crusts. The ointment that the doctor gave me got rid of it for a while but it keeps reoccurring. Continue reading 12th June 2017
I started today by going to the service at the local church. Today we hard eleven people at the service. That may not sound many but the total population of the village is only about one hundred so ten per cent of the village at the service is far better than most of the villages around here.

P. was going out again today, so I opted to spend the day visiting Norfolk Open Studios. Obviously I was interested in the photography, ad there were three studios within a reasonable distance. The first was a lady who combined photography with painting. She took small details from her photographs and treated them, sometimes adding paint, to produce quite abstract results.

We stayed up until 3 a.m this morning watching the election results coming in. It didn’t seem too good when we went to bed looking like an open contest. When we woke this morning and turned the radio on, we had woken to a hung parliament. This doesn’t look good for the country in any respect. Continue reading 9th June 2017
Election Day. Today we made an early start and went out for Breakfast at Dobbie’s Garden Centre. we then went to the bank where I needed to get rid of some cash into the bank. I had collected my small change for over a year, and it had got too much to store. Taking the heavy bag of change to the bank netted over £200. It’s amazing how much change you can acquire over a couple of years. It also meant that I got rid of any old one pound coins before they lose their value in October. Continue reading 8th June 2017
It is still not a nice day. Plenty of rain, so not a lot I can do outside.

An absolutely foul day. It rained all day today, and the wind was powerful. It was difficult to believe that it was June, it was more like a cold day in March. Continue reading 6th June 2017
Today I have another hospital visit. The hospital is in King’s Lynn, so I took the opportunity to do some shopping on the way. P. wanted some fabric to make a cuddly toy for her granddaughter, and I had to visit the bank to pay in some money for the parish magazine. Continue reading 5th June 2017
