Rather like a music festival last night's Suffolk Punch Trust Christmas ball in Hollesley was inevitably running late, the cake sparklers set off the smoke alarms

and not only was there a raffle but two different auctions with lots including painter Louise Harward's triptych Suffolk Trinity.  Charming little presents for the guests and spectacular table flowers were just some visible signs of the organiser's extensive prep and the ball must have raised valuable funds for the trust.  More pix on that there FacePack.

Now we all know you're still a safe driver when in a bit of a hurry and not all of these are near the coast and surprisingly they're not all male or young 'uns either but 123mph on the A134 or 63mph past a school ...

Sounds hairy out there, it's the hills, lorries stuck on the hill last night by what was the Farnham George and Rocket Ronnie has given up trying to get to Framlingham at what was the Sweffling White Horse.

Despite the cold these two pigeons were declaring, no doubt everlasting, love for each other this morning.  Though it's hard to believe now, spring will be on us soon enough.

House sales seem to have picked up in all the ntc towns except Framlingham, maybe it's those dodgy Christmas lights:)
