Beautiful photos Jay. People who only ever visit in the busier months, especially the school holidays, are certainly missing something very special. :)

Finding faults with me already Grace.

I thought we were still in the honeymoon period, but it seems I need to start working on All Of Me.

Hi Jay,

Why have you turned into Gollum? Trying to tell us something? (My precious?)

Do you realise that I’m a complete Tolkien nut?

I shall let you enjoy a view of Gollum for a while then if you enjoy Tolkien so much :default_biggrin:

Sorry I should have specified physical characteristics, although at the end of a night out, I'm sure I've eaten worse than an orc :default_unsure:

Thursday 6th December

The Introduction

Well here I am again, with a story that seems to recur so often, my week should have started on Saturday the 1st December but once more a lack of staffing at work and not enough drivers meant that my leave was cancelled at short notice, meaning from Sunday to Thursday morning I would be required to report for duty.

Fortunately I had been lucky enough to secure the week of the 8th December too so instead of 2 weeks I was still able to enjoy a 9 night break before I return again for the New Year :594c04f570582_default_happyparty:

So at 5 a.m. I sat at work drinking a coffee, looking out the window and getting ready to set off back to Brundall, trying to keep my sore eyes open

After a couple of large mugs of coffee, and a cheeky motivational talk with the lady (thank you darling :default_icon_kiss:) I finally set off heading back to Brundall and back on the water again just after 6 a.m.

20181206_060922.thumb.jpg.88635dabd0a5f74c856ff0c38bfc0089.jpg

The car journey was long, slow and frustrating on my poor tired brain (and there isn't much of it to handle anything anyway) but I have arrived (approx 0930 I'll check back to see) and so it is time for the latest instalment of the exciting, enthralling "A Winters Tale".

If you spot me today, I'm sorry I'm a walking zombie so please excuse me, my appearance and my lack of boat handling capabilities :default_smiley-angelic002:

Stay tooooned.

I mean if you want to, it's not like you have to. And I wouldn't because they are awfully boring, but if you want to you are welcome to come along with me.

Ok I'll shut up now, I'll regret this post tomorrow when I've slept :default_biggrin:

More to follow.....

Now you know very well that your tales are always welcomed, whether or not you are ‘compos mentis’. So just enjoy a good sleep and then start your new story. Hope the weather is good to you. :default_stinky:

Here you go then pubby people, which pub is this? I've given you a full view of the bar to make it easy, and then gone and obscured it a little to make it harder.

I'll adjust the level of obscuration in later pics depending on how well you do :default_norty:
