March Miscellany: Quiz Night and a Walk Around the Fields of Brome, Suffolk - 29th March 2009

Isobel and The Boy™ are away in Ireland for a week, so come Friday night Nosher is at a loose end, but luckily gets invited over to North Lopham, for a quiz night (the Boy Phil drives - woot). The Mikey P massive, and Guv and Rachel are there too, and Jimmy (who'd also mentioned it to Nosher in Morisson's earlier in the day) was score-meister. We don't do too badly, coming in mid-table at fourth out of seven. Then, Isobel hauls Nosher out of a Sunday stupor for a walk around the back fields of Brome. Nosher, who's lived there for over 14 years, has never really explored the fields out the back of the house (tending to drive or cycle instead), but Isobel's got right in to it, and has discovered a lovely walk that goes from the back garden, around the West's fields and along some footpaths to Brome Avenue, then over to the site of the former Hampton Court of Suffolk - Brome Hall (sadly demolished in the 60s) - and back through the village.
