Punting up to Granchester

It is a nice day and have been invited by our friends to go punting up to Granchester and have a picnic on the meadow. It has been some time since we have punted but it’s very enjoyable. We have a lovely picnic and enjoyed the experience, normality is slowly coming back.


A lovely day today so to make the most of it so we are flying to Clacton on Sea. The airfield where I learned to fly 7 years ago. While the pier is open, all the attractions are closed so we have a walk along the seafront instead. Brings back some good memories.

Easter Sunday

We are still not allowed to mix indoors so we are having Easter Sunday lunch in the back garden in our party tent. James and Ileana are coming over and the sun is coming out. Turning out to be a very nice day.


Some of the restrictions are being eased and I am allowed to fly again although I am not allowed to take passengers up. This must wait until the end of April. I therefore fly solo up to the wash and then fly back again.

Good to be flying again after 4 months of being grounded.

NHS Calendar

While we have been in lockdown and to support the NHS during these difficult times, Prue has designed and produced an NHS calendar. She has raised over £1000 so far and she has managed to get herself on the front page of the “Royston Crow” newspaper. She can be rightfully proud of supporting the NHS.

Burns Night (virtual)

As we are back in lockdown we cannot let a good celebration being spoiled so we are having a “virtual” Burns night. We meet up at 7pm for a zoom conversation and narrate some Burns poems, we then all adjourn for home prepared haggis, neeps and tatties followed by cranachan and reconvene at 9pm for the rest of the evening. Almost as good as the “real thing”.


We have been feeding the birds in the back garden but most of it is taken by the cheeky squirrels. We have however been getting other visitors and the muntjac has been named “Monty”. He now come around every morning for some breakfast. Still a bit timid but getting better every day.
