Memories of a Norfolk childhood in the 1950s by one of Norfolk's best-known humorists and broadcasters. 36 separate pieces, three for each month of the year. Affectionate and funny, the writing offers a sharp-eyed and unsentimental view of post-war life in Norfolk in particular, and the country in general, in 1950s England.

As Keith Skipper says: "Distance may lend enchantment, but my country childhood has inspired much more than rampant nostalgia. I relish every chance to extol the virtues of a golden age when...life was quieter, slower, simpler...."
