What I did today.

After a hearty cooked breakfast I went off to Normanby Hall. They are having a Christmas Market this weekend. The Hall is open to visitors, a good opportunity to take some photo's. I didn't go to this last year, it was 2019 when I last went. I've just looked back at the blog post, there are a lot of similar pictures there. Have a scroll through these. If you click on one it will open up a slide show.   
















The Christmas Fair was quite busy. I was determined I was going to buy something to help a local business. Last time I bought some Lincolnshire beer, I didn't see them this time. I opted for some localish cake, baked in a kitchen near Goole. Very nice it is too. 

I wanted to make a video but it was a bit difficult with the amount of people there. Some don't like it and quickly scuttle away when they see a camera. Filming inside the Hall was not a good idea. I went outside and did some filming of the outside of the Hall, and walked across to the duck pond. I will put that on yooootooob tomorrow. 
As I was wandering around I got chatting to a member of staff who was on his break. I asked lots of questions of course, ha ha. His story was very interesting. I won't go into the details here, all that needs to be said is that he is in the minority group. Those who watched my last coffee chat video will know what I mean. The conversation we had gave me a real boost.  It was nice to find someone on the same wavelength. 
So now it is Saturday night and I am happy to relax and watch a couple of videos. A glass of wine will go down nicely, with a piece of cake of course. 
Thanks for popping in. We'll catch up soon. Toodle pip.   ilona

    1. The conversation came about when I told him why I was making a video. One thing led to another then suddenly out of the blue he revealed that he had not taken the treatment. Then we never stopped talking until he had to go back to work.
