and went to a car boot sale of course!
Then down to Felixstowe and the beach hut, surprisingly quiet there for a Saturday in August
Col gave the funny little shed a coat of wood preserver so it can go to youngest's home.
(That blob must be the sun reflecting on a smudge on the lens)
Co put up the fence as previously mentioned and made a cut flower bed..........details tomorrow.
And he went and saw some friends from 'up north' who used to stay on our campsite and were visiting Suffolk
We had an unexpected visit from some other friends who used to live in the village near the smallholding but now live on the south coast.
I made bread, bread rolls and cakes and cooked from scratch. Did some cleaning and lots of reading.
Back to normal this week - two hospital appointments.
Did you watch the Fake or Fortune programme on TV last night where they were authenticating a painting by John Constable? Well here's a thing you didn't know - I (and about 500 other people at Stowmarket Grammar School in the 1960's) were taught art for a while by John Constable's Great Great (not sure how many greats) Grandson also called John, I think it was in between two other art teachers. This is his obituary it says
In 1964 he completed his National Diploma and began teaching at schools in Suffolk, as well as at Ipswich School of Art.
................... and I can't remember much about him except he smelled really strongly of cigarettes!
