these photos are more to prove that i was there than offer any insight in to what the various bands actually looked like. this year i decided not to take too many photos. so i only took my small camera.

we’ve had hedgehogs, and mice and dried out frogs, but what’s this latest specimen we found last night inside ?
i put a one pence piece down on the ground before i let it out so you could see how big it was. deliberately (or otherwise) it walked over and sat on top of it to hide it !

40th wedding anniversary

i realised i never explained why we went to norfolk last month year. it was because it was my parents-in-law 40th wedding anniversary.
here is their cake:
