Jolly Good Night in Orford

Here are the pics of our night at Orford, the rooms at the Jolly Sailor were lovely, with all the little touches that make it special, once we'd fathomed out how to use the new fangled coffee maker (whats wrong with a kettle and tbag!?) and found the Country Living magazines

Before dinner we got dressed up and went for a walk around the river and back to the pub

As you can see the pub was very cosy and welcoming on a cold evening, the ale was very dark and the food extremely tasty

The ensuite facilities were fab aswell

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

The Snow Queen came to visit us last night, i had to abandon my trip out and go to a nearby place for Mulled Wine instead, which was no hardship really.

The pictures are tiny but this is what Felixstowe is looking like this morning, and what i will be seeing once i put my wellies on and walk along the prom to work.

I'm wondering if the snow will be deep enough for Snow Angels?

I certainly wont be getting my bike out today:)

if you want me i'll be here....

It's that time of year, the time to treat yourself to a night in a lovely village pub, put your walking boots on and discover the surrounding country side, before settling in front of the with a hot toddy or two.
We'll be doing that here, at the Jolly Sailor in Orford

and luckily there are rooms to rent too :)

Keeping warm

We (and the customers) are managing to keep toastie in the shop with a range of Winter Warming Drinks and Nibbles. The shop is smelling of Toasted Waffles, Warm Brownies and Hot Chocolate. MMMMMMMM

I've let my artistic side go wild with the Snowman as you can see

So i have been doing some work in between playing with my new toy, which i still love :)

Thankyou Santa

Oh i'm such lucky girlie look what plopped on my doorstep this morning
In fact there were two, his and hers:) I haven't quite sussed all the buttons yet, but i'm sure it's going to make my blog writting much more fun, so be prepared!

The countdown begins...

My how the days fly by. In honor of it being the first day of December today there was a little patch of frost on the roof opposite my house.
The fires seem to have been burning continuously for about 3 weeks now, but at least the house is warm, and i have managed not to put the heating on yet this winter :)

It only seems like yesterday that i was riding my bicycle everywhere.
I miss my bike in the winter, as i hate cycling in the wind.
So it will probably stay in the garage apart from the odd jolly to the pub
