The Wrong Trousers

Trish was up today. We really should have gone to Norfolk because the weather was lovely but I fancied a trip to the Forest to see our the Terns and Grebes were doing.

As we were getting stuff out of the boot Trish turned to me and said "do you know your trousers have a tear in them?" RATS I had put the wrong trousers on.

There were 3 Adult birds and definitely 2 youngsters which was good to see and all 3 young Grebes are doing well so I was rather pleased.

The terns were flying about. I'm quite pleased with these.

I was all for going on but Trish insisted on breakfast (tongue SLIGHTY in cheek).

Trish - Do you want lettuce and stuff with your sarnies?
Pete - Trish!!! I mean why spoil a could rasher of Bacon and a Sausage??

So I asked Trish did she want wildlife or something Historic. She chose the later so we went to Ickworth. Given I've shown you it a few times I played with some B&W.

So into the restaurant for lunch. I like Ickworth but I find the restaurant disappointing. Its a bit pretentious with waitress service (and the prices are higher as a result), they really need a "proper" National Trust cafe to supplement it. The cakes looked nice but I talked Trish out of them (HONESTLY!!) but I did suggest the Ice Cream (which was rather nice).
