Happy New Year

Finding time to post is a chore now, to be honest. As i work early mornings i'm exhausted when i get back home, and studying, reading and writing take up a great deal of my time.
Anyway, i am going to try and post at least once a month from now on, and this months one will be a catch up.

October: the boy and i visited Framlingham Castle. It was once owned by Roger Bigod: earl of Norfolk, and before that was a Norman motte-and-bailey. From there it had various owners from King John in the 13th Century, to the Howards in the 16th, and unfortunately then fell into disrepair.

The wall walk around the castle is spectacular, and the grounds likewise are awesome. I'd definitely return!

We've got a few castle trips planned for Feb so looking forward to them! I also need to go back to Maldon as will be writing about the battle of Maldon for my novel!
