Lovely Fall

September 26, 2014

Well Autumn but the trees here just aren’t behaving … Still green!

The carparking machines have been mashed and consequently there is a civil person taking the carparking pennies with a box office too – just by the new kiddies park.

There is something wrong with people mashing metal to obtain the carpark money resulting in the kids park being watched so to speak.

Maybe those on high need to do the decent thing and let folks have a carboot sale occassionally – balance the boots-tables so to speak!!  So the money for the carpark is recuperable and not a permanent outgoing? Just an idea – fair and reasonable!

The infra red cameras are on for the deer of course.

Hopefully the footie teams have found the footie pitches towards the Bluecoat secondary school – they always used to play there before using the space the new kids’ park is on now. When I was a kiddywink we used to run up and down the sideline and it wasn’t clear why the Saturday and Sunday stopped playing there – something to do with the pitches and goalposts belonging to Glenn Bott school … (hopefully they are back there unless they have been allocated a different space).

The Fall of course is an American word for Autumn. Kids please play safely – like learn lots balance etc.

Thanks to the car park attendant hope its not an all day snowy winter job – body parts toes hands shouldnt freeze! Chestnut sales with a brazier too??

Lazy Hazy Days

While Barefoot Nottingham were in the Park (and the music played at teatime!) the River was still rolling along!

Not quite as simple to find a parking space as in the Park (except at the National Watersports Centre of course) but lots of lovely walks and riverside pubs and restaurants.

The pics show the River at Beeston Weir and at Hoveringham and Stoke Bardolph.



Nottingham #InvestNotts info

September 4, 2014

Its unusual for the blog to add ‘dry not particularly greenspace or visit places info’, but the City is attached to the County and surrounding area: so although it might be a tad smoggy and bustling and it’s no longer possible to park outside a shop of choice in the Square (lots moved to the more exi shopping centres but years ago it was such a fun experience – Burtons for example) but we do love it lots,(#lovenotts) and here’s what the evolving latest info says …

@InvestNott: £800m of investment into our city’s infrastructure is now underway #InvestNotts #Nottingham #retail @BCSCretailprop

A plea goes out for creative enterprise retailling in the City Centre and around the square – it happens with the markets etc etc – a weekly market?

Big thanks to those trying so hard to keep us up to date !

Those hectic mornings, traffic queues, Autumn around the corner – all the events been and gone !!

kk The Cafe do awesome Latte and Cappaccino, Breakfasts, Lunches & the Gardens are lovely. Its even possible to grab a takeaway or fish n chips and picnic in the lazy long late summer evenings!

Just one step at a time to next weekend!


The Archery was cool – a page with pics and links soon. The Powerboat championship have super pics on the National Watersports links. Gedling fete wasn’t rained off this year and although Vera couldn’t fly past a Lincs village Fete, the other Lancaster did.

All in all, a cool weekend – hope the tram and motorway roadworks go ok.

Long lazy summer evenings! Hoping for an Indian Summer all the way to the end of September!
