Now Odds and Ends from the my week..........
Today August 17th, would have been my Mum's 93rd birthday - born in the same year as the Queen, except that Mum died 20 years ago and HRH is still going strong.
This is interesting........
The Museum in Stowmarket which for years has been the East Anglian Museum of Rural Life (or words to that effect, it's changed it's title a couple of times of the last 40+ years) is to become the.....
We don't have any other National Museums of anything in Suffolk as far as I know.
It says "over the next 10 years we will transform Stowmarket's Museum of East Anglian Life into a leading attraction".
I went out to fetch the washing in on Monday and noticed the big Standard Lavender was absolutely buzzing with bees, at least twenty at once, I fetched the camera and tried to get a good photo but they wouldn't sit still, here's just one, they were all the same sort.
Detoured on my way home from town to visit a church............It was locked, so just a photo of the outside.
Swilland St Marys with its strange Victorian belfry on the top of the tower. Only the second village church that I've found locked. I searched the notices in the porch for a phone number for who had the key - but found nothing.
There was a bump at the living-room window and I turned to find a baby pheasant sitting on the window sill, outside I could hear its mother shouting "get down from there before you fall!"
Not a lot else happened this week........I swam, shopped, went and got a new gas cylinder for the cooker, called in on my sister for a coffee and that's about it.
This week I'm grateful for
- Interesting library books
- My homegrown fruit and veg
- Wildlife in the garden
Have a good weekend, I'll be back Monday
