Monday I was at Great Yarmouth talking about an NHS scheme to employ a dance teacher for 10-12 year old to learn the art of getting excercise. An ingenious idea which we'll have to follow up once a suitable person has been appointed!
Tuesday morning on the early hur Martha of Georgia wanted to know what our dustcarts were like. Jayne from Swaffham swiftly supplied this pic to show her after which she mailed the show to say "Gee aren't they small and cute. Ours are giant lumbering noisy trucks!".
My only outside job today is across the road from the Forum at the Theatre Royal where chief executive Peter Wilson talks about their survey of what the theatre gives to the community by way of local industry and tourism. It's quite significant!
Out with the hunt on Wednesday morning but first a stop at the filling station in Roughton on the Cromer Road. Third time now for an Oscar of the forecourt world - Forecourt Trader Customer Services Excellence for Operations Director Danny Syrett pictured here with assistant Amanda.
Down a muddy trail in Gunthorpe then trying to keep up with the West Norfolk hunt. They wouldn't wait for me! Eventually I managed to get Joint Master Bill Borret to talk to us. We were asking if the Bill on hunting was effective and Chris Goreham had studio guests to follow up our conversation and of course there were plenty of your thoughts coming in too! As for my pics - although they were shot in a hurry and could have been composed better - they look just like oil paintings don't you think.

For Thursdays journey I've come out to Fakenham just near the town centre. Here retired vet Colin Vogel has built a new house in his back garden behind the Vistorian mansion. Built in just 30 hours this more than eco-friendly house came from Germany. The massive lounge windows are triple glazed and the insulation and heat conservation of the building means that he'll rarely need to swith the wood-chip burning heating system on!
Reporting for BBC News, I was at the Norwich war memorial today when they lifted out the two sealed caskets from the centre plinth. Inside are the names of those who fell in the First World War and in the other - a mystery. Here, the county archivist and a representative from Caters (who carrying out the refurbishment) hand the casket over to a member of the Royal British Legion (lastly) seen holding them both with the tower of City Hall in the background.
A damp misty start to Friday and we're on the Halloween theme. After stopping cars in a layby to offer them a Halloween treat I travel the coast road to Walcott. Here's the Lighthouse Inn with the church in the background. Owner Steve Bullimore has put twenty years of effort to good use. The massive impressive kitchens have a dedicated staff and I'm impressed too by the cleanliness. We talk about the storm two years ago now when nearly the whole village took refuge here overnight. Steve is very much for helping the community. Next Friday (6th Nov) is their annual firework display. In fact two! The first at 7.15 and then again at 8.15. It's £6.50 pp on the night but advance tickets from the pub are just a fiver.
