Great post

Didn't know Middleton existed!

Every June me and three pals go play golf in Norfolk, usual itinerary, Royal Cromer, Sheringham and then Kings Lynn on the way home.

Would it be possible to play Middleton on way home instead of Kings Lynn please?

More than welcome sir! Course will be infantastic condirtion in June and the Head Greeneeper has promosed us lightning fast greens. If its during the week give me a few days notice so i can take the time off "work"

Thank you

We are in Yorkshire golfing next week so should get some dates put together

Was in Norfolk last week staying at
The White House
Sussex Farm

Brilliant place, went there seven times last year

That’s me booked for 22 nights out there at the end of May. 
Super excited as lots of the type of games I enjoy to choose from while I’m out there.
Just need to cash in some as been dry couple of summers out there.
There’s a few lists of MTTs about but the best one I’ve found is poker schedule where I can filter out the no limit Holdem to see what’s on at all the different casinos daily, link below .

Good Luck

Enjoy

Hello again everyone!

So I took up golf again during Covid when golf courses opened again. Move along another three months and them my boss said working from home is going so well I could make it permanent. We always holiday in Norfolk so it made sense to move there now rather when I retired.
We found a lovely house with a huge garden. Very rural but only 3 miles from Kings Lynn so easier access to London. We happen to back onto the 8th fairway of the local golf course and now it feels like we are living the dream. From now until October instead of my 50 minute commute from London to Essex I can be on the first tee within 10 minutes of leaving my "office". I still have to pinch myself sometimes. This time of year in the evening the birds of prey circle looking for an easy ducklings. Squirrels are everywhere and the odd deer can be seen skipping across the fairways. They asked me to be the Club Secretary last year which I gladly accepted. We also have a small group of about 20 of us called "The Middleton Old Boys" and for nine months of the year we play a different course in Norfolk every month. I'm not bothered about my handicap in anyway but I started off 26 three years ago and reached a low of 14.8 a couple of months ago. Lots of practice helps I suppose :-)
Middleton is a small community and the local village pub is only 10 mins walk away. I restrict myself to once a week. The only time I play poker now is if the pub is particularly quiet and I can find a corner to fire up the £2 deep stack on my phone to quietly while away the time.
Jules has never sung before but joined "Your Choir" when we moved here and loves it. She has met many friends through it as well. We were driving to Sandringham a couple of years ago as she was singing there as part of the Queens Jubilee celebrations neither of us could quite believe it.
We only 20 mins drive to the coast as well and the dogs have a blast there. We also have many beautiful walks around here so that's how I spend my lunch hour every day.
I also love my electric bike. The tyres were pumped up and chain oiled and we went for our first ride of the year yesterday evening. The village closest to us is North Runcton which is gated as it has cows roaming freely. The other side is miles of open countryside.
Its so weird to think that Covid is responsible for all of this.
Times have moved on now and I have to spend two days a month in the office. I do this consecutively as if you book in advance a Travelodge is only about £100 a night. I drive to nearby Watlington station to get to Kings Cross. Its a tiny unmanned station which is only 4 carriages long and so quaint. Parking is only £1 for 24 hours as well. Its nice to go back to the City though and eat in some decent restaurants and have a good lunch. WFH lunches always seem to be either soup or a sandwich! But soon the greenhouse will be full of salad. I also make a trip once a month to play golf with my work colleagues and normally pick somewhere north of the M25.
If anyone ventures over this way and fancies a round you are more than welcome.

May bore you all with some pictures as well but for now clubs have to be cleaned as we are teeing off at 8.42 am tomorrow.

Hi Trev. I installed Merlin.

It's fabulous, I can't understand why you tried to put me off it.

My dad would have absolutely loved it.

Nag nag... You're not identifying as a woman now are you Trev?

Seriously though, I am slowly getting there. First of all they wanted my email address so I had to consider that for a couple of days, then they wanted me to download about half a gig of something, now they want to mess with my phone and they want access to my location.

What next, medical records?

Leave it with me, I'll try to loosen my tinfoil hat.

Hmmmm seems rather excessive to what I had to do

You must be a wrong un

Heard the Cuckoo yet Tom?


Trev!

I haven't l heard a cuckoo since you first asked me God knows how many years ago.

I think of you every time I don't hear one though.

We had a Cuckoo close by yesterday morning and again today

Need you to hear one, they must of been a regular during your younger days


I always used to hear the cuckoo Trev. It was a stand-out moment for me because my grandad had a superstition that you should turn the change over in your pocket when you heard the first one of the year, he did it religiously and as a little boy I would copy him.

Although I'm not supertitious, (Touch wood) I continued to do ot long after my grandad's passing.

Cracking quote, only trouble is very few folk have change in their pockets nowadays

I still like cash not cashless

Have you got the Merlin bird app

Great bit of tackle for bird song recognition, especially this time of the year

I got Teeks on it but he's more of a townie

Morning Mr Trevor.

Funnily enough, I was using Merlin last night.

I played Mickleover with three pals. It's a heavily wooded course with some lovely mature trees & bushery. We had a 10 minute wait on one tee whilst we let a speedy 2 ball through, & this was at about 7pm on THE most beautiful sunny spring evening. The birdsong was in full flow so I opened Merlin up & it snap identified 4 different varieties within seconds. Nothing exotic - Robins, Blackbirds, a Song Thrush & a chaffinch - but it gave me a real kick to be able to know what they were.

As a golfing experience it was a disaster - that's another story - but it was SUCH a perfect evening weather-wise, with glorious birdsong right across the course.

Hope to see you soon Trevor, it's been way too long since we had a knock. Mr Giblin (JAKALLY) invited me for a round a week or two ago & we drove down to Stoke Rochford GC on the A1 south of Grantham. Wow, it was SO lovely. I play with Moulty's crew at Breadsall Priory (Moorland) regularly) & yesterday I played with another crew - "JAC" & co - at Mickleover. 

Yes I will be back on the golfing scene soon when and if it warms up a tad

Keep the Merlin going

Was golfing yesterday with Leicester Tigers

I got you and Bookiebasher an invite and he said you was playing snooker

Good job the food and beer was good



Noooooooooooo? Would love to have played. I'm either being whooshed or I've misunderstood something, I've not played snooker for around 30 years, & I was "free" yesterday.

That aside, great to hear from you Trev, you still making millions on the commodities?
Bookie must of meant HE was playing snooker, I took it as though you were both snookering

Commodities trading going nice and steady, the current climate seems fairly quiet or after 45 years of trading I may actually finally be learning not to be toooooo greedy
