Zombie Evacuation in Hockwold cum WiltonAt today's Zombie Evacuation in Hockwold cum Wilton (it's near Lakenheath) Nursie and Gingham Girl had clearly been street muggers in a previous life.  As always good fun, unlike last year it didn't rain and perhaps the baby zombie was the scariest of all.  Back again about the same time next year and a charity colour run is being planned for next April.

Preparation for The Framlingham Flyers' 10kWe were planning to visit the Burston Strike School rally today but got distracted by the Framlingham Flyers' 10k.  Some 400 entrants, loads of marshals and helpers, selection race for Suffolk County, the smallest and youngest water person we've yet seen and we heard that the course record was broken, probably by this bloke.  It'll have to be Burston next year then ...

2012 Black and White Charity Dance♫ Pleasant memories of the late Outlaws at the Park Hotel Diss in 2012 though we did walk out of the wrong door and had to go all the way round to get back in.  Tonight at the hotel it's Elton John and George Michael ... reckon that'll be tribute acts then.

Waiting in a light rain shower for the medicYesterday's Bury Saints v London Olympians in Thetford was full of incident including starting 45 minutes late because the medic couldn't find the venue.  The refs ended the game early because an injured player on the field couldn't be moved until an ambulance arrived so we're uncertain of the score but certainly an Olympians win.
