Thetford, it gets a lot of stick, but how could you not love a place that has this:
There is nothing like a Saturday morning dog walk in the sun.
I have probably mentioned before that I live on an estate with one of “those” reputations, and yet our experience of living here is entirely different from the stereotype.

It’s been a joyful week. I have found all sorts of happy things and we are wildernes have helped me look again during.g the time I spend outdoors each day. If you want to have a go at their 30 day challenge, you can find it HERE.

While I am dubious of the effectiveness of home made deodorant, its got to be worth a try right?
So lovely human beans… do you have anything else I can add to my Pinterest board?
It is the happier side of the nasty fly tipping in the woods behind our house.
Ah well, the dog has a new toy and our morning walk was lovely.
While I waited for Atom to finish a particular sniff, I took the time to watch the finches pottering in a tree. The RSPB website tells me they were probably siskins.
It has made my morning and reminded me once again of the importance to stop, listen and take note.
Something which works well with people as well as birds.
