... a bit Suffolk

When Lord Brundish sent us this we thought festal? surely that's a typo and the Queen's long reign? a bit random. But festal is a word meaning having festival properties (and a medication brand name) and the Wednesday after next month's Festal Evensong the Queen will become the longest reigning British monarch ever ... we'll turn out for a bit of Zadok the Priest.

10:17am The Framlingham poll officer is already having to poke ballots in with a ruler, it does matter just bloody VOTE!
06:50pm Earlier we spoke to prospective parish councillor Richard Pierce-Saunderson outside the Stradbroke poll. He was about to vote as an emergency proxy on some one else's behalf, we found it exciting. There was a steady stream in out of the Stradbroke poll, very quiet in Wilby, quiet in Brundish and steady in Dennington.
08:21pm Queue back to the door in Framlingham polling station. You have to be in the queue by 10pm to get a ballot paper ... not long to go.
10:19pm Too late now, Riverside Framlingham.

We arrived at the Brundish harvest supper last night far too late for the beef casserole but got a glass of good wine, a taste of the excellent cheese board and to go with the coffee home made sweets. Though the peppermint creams were the superstar models the chocolate squares contained Brundish foraged hazelnuts ... well you can work it off with some zumba.

When we set off lunchtime for the Brundish village fete Sunday there was a torrential with hail thunderstorm that flooded (untypically these days) the bottom of Fore Street Framlingham. In Brundish the adults were either sheltering in pergolas or The Crown but the youngsters ignored the wetness and continued footballing. Funds raised will pay for war memorial plaques on the village sign.

We were surprised when Argo won Bafta best film back in February and we didn't get to see it in Aldeburgh (love sitting there doing nothing waiting for the film to start). Brundish are showing it this Thursday as the last film of their winter season ... looks a bit American. Is it us or are trailers getting longer?
