POTTERING

potter

ˈpɒtə/

verb

gerund or present participle: pottering
occupy oneself in a desultory but pleasant way.

“I’m quite happy just to potter about by myself here”

*****

But it’s not without its hazards round these parts.

You might stumble into a cream tea, catch crabs or fall head first into a community lifeboat museum.

He was quite a guy Henry Blogg.

Particularly good at taming the Devil’s Throat.

Come again?

That’s Cromer. Treacherous waters and hundreds of rescue missions from “the greatest of all lifeboatmen.”

“He was awarded the gold medal of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution three times and the silver medal four times, the George Cross, the British Empire Medal, and a series of other awards.”

But he was also beautifully modest.

He wouldn’t have, for example, written a blog.

I’m sorry.

Maybe his dog??

BRUISES

You’ve had a cup of tea, entertained the baby, watched Andrew Marr…What’s a boy to do with a head full of dreams…
That’s right!
A raft race!!

Trouble was. It was too good.
“I was hoping for a few bruises,” bemoaned the tannoy man.
No boats disintegrated and only one rather half hearted overboard.
Oh well… a local publican in a Hawaiian skirt beats another 2 hours of wingeing to the telly about Brexit.

Plus…

Coming up in the Sheringham Carnival…

“Buxom beasties on the steam train.”

Once your tired of L…

Shut up Samuel Johnson.

We fell in love with our new home all over again.

There were all these jumpers that the fishermen wore called ganseys which were also popular in Holland.

We’re an 8th Dutch.

The hands…

Or you could just go for a nice walk.

PUKING

Your baby is puking, your dog is pulling, the clouds are emptying…

What do you want your husband to say at that point… to ease the pain…

“Can we got to the shell gallery?”

*****

I mean this wasn’t quite the avant grade art galleries of Bethnal Green, yet neither was it the £6 fan museum of Greenwich.

Its amazing what people can do with shells.

Imagine what they could put those skills to…

Imagine.
