Writing a blog is fun, but even better is meeting up with another blogger and Joy and I had a good chat when we met up in a coffee shop in Bury St Edmunds and on Wednesday I'm meeting up with blogger Rachel - so two blog meet-ups in one week.
It always surprises me how quickly I can get to Bury on the A14 nowadays. A journey that took over an hour by bus going through villages in 1971 when I first worked in Bury Borough library now takes less than 20 minutes on the A14......... which hadn't even been built back then. Although it takes me nearly 20 minutes to actually get onto the main road first! Not that I mind, because being so far from a major dual-carriageway everywhere at home is so quiet and peaceful.
Last year I bought a slightly naff Christmas decoration for £1(from a boot-sale of course) - a canvas picture with lights run by batteries. I took a photo, printed it out and this year turned them
into.............cards for the family.
Later I added some peel-off labels and hopefully they're good enough to send. The lights show up quite well in the photo.
Thanks to everyone for comments yesterday.
