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 !

Back to School!

August 31, 2014

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!

Pic made with Photo Grid android app and Photo Editor for the frame.
