Felixstowe – lovely Sunday morning

We love Felixstowe.  It’s a jewel on the Suffolk coast, one of Britain’s biggest container ports and the beaches you fond at the end of the A14.

We had wanted to move here but recent events have curtailed our plans.

It’s an excellent mix of high street, pubs, restaurants, beaches, kiss me quick and penny arcades.

And if you want a flat 4 mile paved walk the promenade this is the place

I can sit and watch the sea for hours on end. The tide is noticeable and sometimes spectacular. People watching is rewarding. Sand is clean and beach huts trim and well kept. Sometimes the horizon is packed with ships of all sizes and when the very largest are due the crowds pack in.

I love it here.

Monster buster match 3 game

I know how ridiculous it is. I know it is meaningless.  But I’ve been playing this game for more than three years now and every day I get my monster fix!

I have noticed that if I get stuck for days on one puzzle and then leave it a day or so then suddenly it gets easier- or I get a gift of unlimited lives for a few hours.

 

Addictive!!

Badingham White Horse

We decided to go to the Badingham White Horse for lunch and guess what held us up? Yes – not one but 2 White horses!

We got past

and went on the have a truly delicious meal.

Check out the place HERE

The Mister wanted a proper Sunday roast, and he certainly cannot claim hunger after the several plates of food that came out for him. A massive dinner plate just with meat (several slices of tender, beautifully roasted  beef) a Yorkshire the size of his head and crispy roast potates. Then a dish of cauliflower cheese. Then a dish of green veg. Then a dish of florets. There was another one which escapes me. My appetite was not strong so I had the cold fish platter, billed as smoked salmon, peppered mackerel, prawns and salad. Instead of the mackerel they gave me crab that still smelled of Cromer and instead of prawns it was lobster.  Brown bread and butter was all that was needed, as well as the nicely cut lemon. No pictures of food, I am afraid as I was too busy chomping.

Nice interior though

They serve craft beers in barrels behind the bar, which we loved. We took our final drinks outside and found their garden is now a wood fired pizza kitchen!

It had lots of sunny tables, nicely presented and pleasantly occupied. Great fun people watching.

3 hours very well spent.

Games and rewards

I know it’s daft but I’ve been playing match3 games for over 10 years now. Right from my very first (Jewel Quest)

So when I get out on the leaderboards I know how silly it is but I just want to dance around the room!

These games are full of positive reinforcement which should  not convince a cynic such as myself. But I do seem to enjoy it. The whoops. The cheers. The “Well Done”!

If ever you need applause just download one of these games!

Lady Bird

It is Mothers Day today and my daughter took me to see this lovely film. I made it almost to the end before bursting into tears.  It’s a lovely take about a girl growing up with a mum who did not have the best upbringing herself and who finds it hard to show her love.
