I've had a couple of days away... not in the Gobi desert as you might be fooled into thinking from my photos but in the depths of Norfolk!
Over the past few years three good friends have up sticks and moved away. I'm beginning to think they were trying to tell me something but they all remain good friends. The sort of friends where it doesn't matter if you go weeks, months or even years without seeing each other because when you do, you pick up from where you left off. Gill relocated to Norfolk last year and although I saw her in December this was the first time I've been to visit her in her new home (I say first because I intend to go back whether she likes it or not... she can't get away from me that easily!)
We were hoping for some long walks during the day and plenty of chat and knitting in the evening and we weren't disappointed. On Wednesday we ventured to Wells and walked along the beach to Holkham... well wrapped up against the wind.
Admittedly the wind was really COLD but it was still a beautiful day. Having notched up at least a day and a half's worth of steps, we came home and even though she really doesn't do cooking if she can help it, Gill cooked me a fabulous supper which even included loads of green vegetables which she wouldn't usually eat through choice. See what a good friend she is making me a healthy supper... and all I do to her is make her eat cabbage!
After a night of telly and knitting, the following day we walked from Gill's to Sandringham. We didn't see the Queen but we could just about see the sea!
It's been a lovely couple of days, Gill has cooked me some really good meals... breakfast and lunch as well as dinner, and I feel like I've been on holiday. Not only that I've clocked up so many steps that I've walked a whole extra day's worth. I could have just stayed in bed today! Having woken up to this it was tempting...
But it didn't hang about for long... and I didn't stay in bed for long either!
Wherever you are, stay warm this weekend.
