And that was that

End of 2011

Sandra’s made some great pictures of our pre and post New Year ramblings: above is a view of the Priory in Castle Acre, full of midwinter gloom –  it’s always a treat to walk around the crumbling buildings, whether summer or winter.

Back home there’s plenty to read and watch and listen to in 2012.  Before that there is the need for some  brisk walks and plenty of fresh air with plenty of opportunity to enjoy granddaughter’s company:

New Year’s Day is always good for a stroll along the beach.  This time we went to Cromer looking for shells and those very special stones that centuries of water and wind have transformed into creatures with gnomelike features, ready to pounce or perhaps they will simply be washed away again by the next tide to come and haunt us once more next year:



  1. Sounds and looks like you had a wonderful end to 2011! Wishing you all the best for 2012!

  2. What a lovely holiday season! Love the photos and the sentiments….Thanks for visiting my blog earlier and commenting on my resolutions.

  3. Sounds you had a good time with your family over Christmas and new year. Do you get all those books for Christmas?

  4. Judith: they were shared equally between the family 🙂 We all gave some and received some…..
    Kathleen – and to you! Hope to ‘meet’ regularly

  5. Now, those are A LOT of presents! 🙂 happy New Year!
