Plan your days Norfolk Style

New daily planners for 2023 have just been released in my Amazon store.

Norfolk scenes feature on the covers so you can enjoy your favourite Norfolk view every day. The current collection includes: Wells-next-the-sea, Stiffkey, Winterton-on-sea, Cromer, Salthouse and Blakeney. There are also Norfolk seals, and the beautiful and rare Swallowtail butterfly to enjoy.

The softback cover and internal pages are very tactile and the size (8.5x 11″) practical.

Ideal for personal or work use.

Norfolk Kids Collection

At last, I have created a collection for the little ones who love to visit Norfolk or who reside here already.

Introducing some crabby tee-shirts alongside the legendary Gavin the Gull. This is a lighthearted collection designed to raise smiles and a giggle or two.

More designs will be added soon.

In addition to t-shirts and hoodies, you will find fun stickers, perfect for water bottles, lunch cases, etc.

All are available to purchase via Redbubble.com/MyriadLifePhoto. Worldwide delivery and great quality products. Also, quantity discounts are available.

Selling via Redbubble enables me to concentrate on the photography and design while using experts to manufacture and deliver. I get paid a commission on each sale. So, please don’t be shy, every sale makes a big difference to this small company!

The items are printed in the country of purchase (or as near as possible).

Lost in Norfolk

Lost in Norfolk -lost in the beauty, the skies, the beaches, the atmosphere.

When I say “Lost in Norfolk”, what I mean is “lost in the beauty of this incredible county.” Lost in the big skies, the never-ending coastline, lost in the bountiful Norfolk Broads, lost in the romance and joy of it all. That’s what “Lost in Norfolk” really means. 

You only need the compass to give you your true bearings… or to find your way to the places you love most!

When I visited Norfolk as a child, I had an immediate sense of feeling at home. Little did I know I would end up living here, but it seemed like the most natural place in the world for me to be. 

For some reason, I knew I wanted to leave Cambridge (my place of birth). For some reason, it never felt right to me. It isn’t that I didn’t have a happy childhood and I did enjoy my teens there, but there was never the sense of real belonging that I feel here. 

In my office there hangs a picture of me as a baby, dangling on my father’s knee in a Norfolk park, which I feel sure is Eaton Park. I think we may have stopped off there on the way to the coast. When I discovered the photograph, it became clear why I felt so at ease in Norfolk.

There were lots of visits to Norfolk over the years. My cousin came to UEA, and I visited her on many a weekend. Then, eventually, the pull became too much to resist, and I moved to Norfolk and lived happily ever after. 

There is always something new to discover, to learn, to revel in here in Norfolk. It’s a place to lose yourself in and find yourself. The only place I have ever felt truly free.

Check out my Norfolk Collection below and please subscribe for updates. The Norfolk Collection is available via Redbubble who print and deliver worldwide. Great quality items and lots of options on colours and styles.

Make it a colourful 2022!

With all the stresses of the pandemic and life in general, what can be more fun than to sit down and get artistic? As well as being a writer and publisher, I am also a photographer and I thought it would be an interesting experiment to turn some of my images into colouring pages.

Not all images lend themselves to the transformation but I have picked out the ones I think work best. Below is a sample of some of the printable images available via my Etsy store.

They are great for artists or anyone who needs to take their mind away from everyday distractions and who enjoys the scenery Norfolk has to offer.

I am working on a book of these colouring pages so look out for that, I will post via my social media when it is available. I will also add colouring pages to this website so that they can be bought and downloaded directly. Eventually there will be more generic ones such as animals and flowers too. I have a huge number of images to trawl through to convert as I have been a photographer for many many years, so keep coming back for updates.

You can check out some of my photography here via Photo4Me

While I am here, it would be remiss of me to point out that there is a FREE giveaway at the moment here on this very site.

The giveaway deadline date is Friday 7th January and available to UK subscribers only (apologies to my overseas visitors!) Visit the link to see more details.

I try to create a giveaway every month so it is worth subscribing. February may be a good month to do a colouring page giveaway and that would go worldwide as I will create a printable download. Hey, what a good idea! I just thought of that as I was typing. Don’t be shy, subscribe!
