Palmers and Bricklayers

Palmers Reunited The hottest day of the year so far! A scorcher of a day, as we headed down to Bromley to catch up with Neil, Debbie, Alfie and Frankie. Just to make a change, rather than our normal haunt of ASK, at the top of the high-street, we chose The Bricklayers Arms, just a…

Big Boy Bow!

If it's Friday night, then for us, it can only mean one thing: stick 'em with the pointy end! Sorry, I do of course mean... outdoor archery practice, courtesy of Kettering Archers. And what a lovely evening for it! 😊 Ann and I continued to refine our technique with the bows we used last time…

Guilty as Charged!

It's been a week of experimentation whilst we tried out various Public Chargers for the first time. Tuesday: Our first public charge (almost!) First stop (on Tuesday) was Rushden Lakes where there are 7 chargers (5 x 7.2w + 2 x 22w, all shiny new) - and better still, they're all free! Pity then, that…

Joseph – And the Pub of Many Burgers

We headed for Kilworth Theatre today to see their latest outdoor production... Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Joseph... Running from 26th May until 5th July 2019, this production was back by popular demand. Given the track record here, we knew we were in for a treat! Starring Jacob Fisher in the titular role; Carole…

Da Da Daaaa..!

Just imagine being part of Jeff Wayne's 1978 Album "Musical Version of The War of the Worlds"... ...Well, imagine no longer! Book Tickets HERE 1.30pm: We're off... Jo and I left Kettering in plenty of time heading for this unique experience in London. Our expectations were high, as we'd both read (and heard) some excellent…

Saxon Mill – The Return

Today was a welcome return to The Saxon Mill Gastropub in nearby Warwick. Last time we were here (back in July last year) was for the same reason - Lunch with friends!

Tea for Three

We picked up Helen, and headed to the ever-reliable Beckworth's for one of their Afternoon Teas! Yumminess predicted! 😁 Yumminess exceeded! The food and service didn't disappoint, and judging by the fact that the rest of Northamptonshire were also there, others were equally impressed! Helen and Ann Afterwards, we took a look round their Garden…

Big Band for a Big Event

You might remember Paul - he joined forces with David and me for our '£1-a-Day' fund-raising event in 2017 and 2018. Paul as he looked BEFORE someone told him about Cambodia's creepy-crawlies! Well, he's mad enough - in a good way - to continue his generous nature and has volunteered to do a 94km sponsored…

Theme from The Archers

Our Archery lessons continued tonight. We're now in our third week (after a fortnight's distraction elsewhere) and we've moved up to heavier bows - Ann's on an 18-pounder and I'm trying out a 20-pounder. Considering it's been raining day and night for most of the week, the evening turned out to be perfect! And perhaps…
