It has suddenly gone very quiet here at Deadman’s towers; Deadman junior has been whisked away by his grandparents to Bedfordshire leaving Deadman and me home alone. The grandparents have been here all weekend and my father is an enthusiastic whistler, so the silence is all the more marked!
On Saturday we attended the Fairyland Trust’s Real Halloween event. I was hoping to show off my tulle and coat hanger wings, but the weather was just too wet so they stayed in the loft. Deadman junior and his
Nan made potions
(bath bomb and sleeping potion) whilst Deadman, Grandpa and I followed the
fairy trail in the wood. Afterwards we enjoyed the lively and entertaining music of The Vagaband in the music tent
Families warming themselves at a brazier in a brief moment of sunshine.
On Sunday we headed to Deadman Junior’s favourite place; The Sainsbury Centre at the UEA in
They do loads of interactive art and Deadman Junior and Nan
spent hours creating miniature landscapes from assorted fabric and twigs. Meanwhile
Grandpa, Deadman and I perused the exhibitions. We discovered Larkin and Mortimer looking cool in an exhibition by photographer John Hedgecoe.
