The events that led to our moving from town to country and arriving in East Suffolk were quite unexpected. It all started with a planned journey to the Isle of Wight which didn’t take place. My husband was to go by train and ferry to place a deposit on a house, when he arrived at the station there weren’t any trains to London, from anywhere.

the Sutton Hoo treasures when I was about 14 at the British Museum, I remember staring in amazement at the absolute beauty of the Millefiori glass on the ancient purse- lid. The whole mystery must have stayed with me.

The purchase of our new home was very brief. It’s a new site built on an old American base opposite a disused airfield, yellow American fire hydrants pose as a daily reminder of what once was. Our house is new, with personality, it is very French in style with lovely long windows and concrete sills. The views across the fields are inspiring, from one window I can see the white water tower and across the field the ancient Church of St. Gregory whilst the pylons in the distance march across the land.

Occasionally we are treated to a magnificent Spitfire Display over the Airfield. No traffic lights, no queues and near the village of Eyke (what a great name).
