  1. Job Opportunity

    I did that job in 1988! Saturday mornings only.
  2. Normal For Norfolk

    Well I would say it was SNEFS. Something I encountered written on client forms back in the 1990's at a company I won't mention. It was either NFN or SNEFS (sub normal even for Suffolk!!)
  3. Beavers On The Broads

    Not quite the Broads, but I have a friend who has seen a beaver twice near Lakenheath where she lives. Not the kind of one most of you are hoping to see though unfortunately. I'll get her to report it.
  4. I'm waiting for a work email to come in so I decided to mess about in Photoshop, here's my sketchy Scottish Heart Pennant
  5. Finally Moving

    You'll be just in time for lunch at The Lodge
  6. Local Garden Centres

    I live just down the road from Salhouse Garden Centre and I am really impressed with the quality of their plants. I've recently planted a few shrubs from there and they are flourishing beyond expectation.

    I got 25, but I did get a 6! Never happens to me on the beach...
  8. River Ant At Barton Turf

    That's lovely to see. I used to do teach dyke dipping to school children on field trips I would have love to have been able to show them something like this.
  9. Loves And Dislikes Of Boating On The Broads

    I hear enough of that from the other half, he's from Essex! And he got away with this over the weekend. They did not escape luckily for him otherwise it would have been maggot in black bean sauce for dinner.
  10. Loves And Dislikes Of Boating On The Broads

    I hate that moment after dinner, when you think, I know I will sit on the stern and stare at the moonshadow and listen to the bittern boom and all will be well with the world. So you sit on the stern and then you hear the whine in your ear and you slap it before the little blighter bites you. And then your leg itches so you slap that. And then you hear that whine again, but this time it's a drone and you look up and the twilight sky is now black with swarms of mossies. And then you look behind you and the white boat you just lent back on is covered with doofus little black flies which are now stuck due to the evening dew and you've managed to smear them all over you. And then you hear that whine again and you think sod the bittern and go back inside! I love pretty much everything else...
  11. What's The Big Secret?

    Peter, I found a load of happy red ones snuggled in my lettuce one day and decided enough was enough. I do not share my food!!! Husband now has one of those 12/240v coolboxes specially for his maggots.
  12. What's The Big Secret?

    Well we run a business together so what's his is mine But he is not allowed his maggots in my fridge.....
  13. What's The Big Secret?

    When insuring the husband's new fishing dinghy I told the insurers we had the police cover on the outboard and the broker told me they had never had a claim for a stolen outboard with one of those covers on. I don't know how true that is, but that is what he told me. There is an order form - I have attached it. outboard_engine_cover_order_form_2015-1.pdf
  14. Carp Fishing Lakes Wanted Norfolk

    Bawburgh Lakes on the Wensum at Colney (I think they are called Bawburgh Fisheries now) have some nice carp and cracking tench and bream too.
  15. Hello

    Totally counts Timbo, with a bit of epoxy and some marine ply I'm sure we can float it.
