Welcome to Thursday Doors, a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing your link in the comments below, anytime between 12:01 am Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time).
Today I am sharing photographs from our visit to my Mom’s home town of Bungay, Suffolk. Bungay is the setting from my books, While the Bombs Fell, co-written with my Mom, and Through the Nethergate.
This is a short extract from While the Bombs Fell which describes my Mom’s home and the goat shed:
“Many other cottages along “back lane,” or Nethergate Street, were small and shabby, the same as
Elsie’s home. They all looked similar and featured an outside toilet.
In the yard of the cottage next door stood two dilapidated wooden sheds. A fat, elderly man lived
alone in that cottage. The local people called him Old Fiddledee Dee. He wore a worn calico shirt, an
old waistcoat buttoned over his large belly and a pair of tatty, brown pants.
Old Fiddledee Dee kept goats in his sheds which he milked every morning. People said he lived on
goat’s milk and bread. The thought of drinking milk from smelly goats disgusted Elsie.”
