It's all the go in and about near the coast, temporarily closing petrol stations to re-Haynings garage Framlingham being updatedmodel them, not an insignificant matter when there are so few to start with.  Woodbridge (has it re-opened yet?), Co-op Stowmarket (not closed but building going on), Haynings Framlingham (reportedly will have a 24 hour self service pump) and now the BP garage on the west bound A14 near Newmarket.  Fortunately services just off the A14 on the other side of Cambridge are copiously resourced ... three Costa Coffee machines!

All we could find on the web about Sunday's motorcycle trial was it was Sunday and somewhere around Butley.  In the event it was a mile or two from the village, well signposted with orange pennants, had a burger van and an enormous free car park.  Lots of women judges and unlike our last trial visit eleven! years ago there were a lot more modern bikes including two electrical jobbies.  We always like the surreal cinema image of a single motorbike making its way through the woods.

Ed Sheeran in 2006 and Earl SohamWe could rant about the relentless building around near the coast making rural Suffolk increasingly suburban with little if any improved infrastructure but we'll console ourselves that it's still a pleasant place to live.  We have bubbling a slight change to our look and very probably stylish merch.  In 2019 no doubt there'll be continued sightings of Ed Sheeran, the East African will report local fury about something or other and there'll be even more building ... wishing you the best for 2019.

Donate your retiring Christmas tree to entertain the meerkats at Stonham Barns.
