lizziec: (toys - Giraffe)
We went on holiday to Norfolk this year, to this beautiful cottage called "Remus" in Larling, through this brilliant company who let holiday cottages in five locales, despite being called "Best of Suffolk" ;)

I was pretty excited about going, but didn't realise how much I really needed to get away from everything after the year we've had so far. And I really did need to get away, and feel miles better for having done so.

Day One - Friday 3rd September - Travelling and settling in )

Day Two - Saturday 4th September - Relaxing in the cottage )

Day Three - Sunday 5th September - Bure Valley Railway and Great Yarmouth )

Day Four - Monday 6th September - Banham Zoo (featuring Giraffes) )

Day Five - Tuesday 7th September - The world's most disappointing Toy and Model Expo and England's only Whisky distillery )

Day Six - Wednesday 8th September - IWM Duxford )

Day Seven - Thursday 9th September - Norwich )

Day Eight - Friday 10th September - Home again (with a stop at Bluewater en-route) )

It was really good to be away, but it was quite nice to get home again.

The fantastic news, and a good way to round off our holiday, is this was our last holiday in which I had to do all the driving, because on Monday, Ben passed his driving test first time \o/ (though this does mean I now have to share the car ;))

Happy Easter to those who believe. I hope it's been a good one :)

I have spent a very relaxing day pottering about our (newly spring cleaned and rearranged - epic effort lasting 3 days and 12 sacks of stuff to be got rid of [an lj post in itself]) flat, pottering up to a friend's house to feed a bunny, then on to the fields beyond to look at the lambs (fitting for Easter Sunday I feel). Came home and listened to our official downloaded copy of the BNL concert we went to only a week and a bit ago and read Blood, Sweat and Tea lent to me by [livejournal.com profile] no1typo while keeping an eye on irc. Now [livejournal.com profile] benc is cooking dinner (Cardamom and Honey Chicken with CousCous) and it smells lovely. Not a bad way at all to spend an afternoon :) I feel very relaxed now!

I have few eggs this year as compared to other years (medium Chocolate Orange one from Mum, a small smarties one and a cadbury's chick from Ben and a packet of minieggs from myself - added to later by two boxes of chocolates from Sue [Green and Blacks bitesize - Squeeeeeee {also some luxury chocs from someone I've never heard of, but they're very nice} and not one of the chocolates contains nuts! Yay! She's very clever :D]), but much to my suprise I haven't touched any of this stash of chocolate yet!

Maybe after dinner...
