Cowart's Common Room

A busy day with work and then later in the day caught up with all the laundry and ironing.............. sigh. It has been raining bucket loads here all day, still raining now and there is an extremely fierce wind blowing.

I popped into the local post office and was met by the lovely lady Bev at the counter, she told me......... have you seen this month's Eastern Daily Press Magazine, our village is featured in it, so of course I had to buy it, and it is the Magazine's 10 year edition and features some recognised people who live in East Anglia.

Just going to take a tour of the site, and pop the kettle on.

If you can't sleep and there are others on line then have a natter here.

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams.

Sad to read about the passing of the great race horse.
Seemed she was a bit old to still be breeding.

If I don't talk to you again--Sweet dreams.

Frances's Avatar Hello all,

Camilla, you have been busy today. Great that your village has gotten some media attention. Or is it? Sometimes it is better to have a treasure of a place remain undiscovered!

I cannot believe that my week is slipping past. Very, very cold here today, although the sun was out and just about all of yesterday's snow is gone.

I am delighted that this Friday, I will be getting together with a very long time friend (we knew each others as teenagers in Virginia.) She and her husband will be visiting New York, and we will have a quick reunion. I am so glad to have the day off to make that reunion possible.

Today I managed to complete and mail my Federal tax return. I am due for a tiny refund check. Any incoming check is a good check! I have also done a first pass at the New York State and City taxes, and it appears that I might have to pay a little bit. So...filing that one can wait until the April 15 deadline.

Camilla's Avatar Hello Puffin and Frances,

Thank you Puffin, how lovely to be having snow, we only got to about 5 inches here in January.

I love the Piano too Puffin, sadly I cannot play a note, the violin is another favourite instrument of mine.

My daughter had Piano lessons from the age of five for five years, but she hardly plays at all now.

I have not read about the Race Horse yet Puffin, know I will be sad, I adore animals.

Camilla's Avatar Hello Frances,

Thank you. Stepen Fry, Delia Smith, Horatio Nelson to name but a few, all residents here in Norfolk. The village is growing in numbers sadly, and the school which has a good record for teaching attracts even more families.

It will be lovely to meet up with that old school friend and her husband on friday Frances, I am sure there will be a lot of catching up to talk about.

With that refund cheque Frances, hoping that you can buy some more water colours or even some wonderful new items of clothing.

Frances's Avatar Camilla, I am going to log off now, and wish you sweet dreams. Another fine part of having a week off is grabbing lots of sleep!

See you tomorrow night. xo

Camilla's Avatar Cait - I do not know the artist unfortunately, I obviously saved the picture from a website a long tima ago, but it is vintage. The title is VINTAGE SUMMER. It may have perhaps been on the Etsy website, not sure though.
