Made great progress yesterday, so I'm back at table 19. Can't call the website Table19.com though as no one would know what I was on about, although there's a train one called seat 61. Overheard some great conversations in here yesterday including a member of staff telling someone over lunch that they take £ 44, 000 a week in here! Can't be right can it? Would love to know if that was true. Finally, a proper spring day here in Norfolk, one we can be proud of.
Morning all, hope you're having a great Monday so far. This is my first ever blog post and I have to say I'm feeling VERY important as I write this. I don't know why, perhaps a sense of having joined the 21st Century, as I sit a la JK Rowling in the Wetherspoons in Dereham, with a coffee and free WiFi. We're back living in our motorhome and staying at the campsite in Gressenhall about 4 miles outside town. There is no Wifi there, or even TV signal so I decided to hit the metropolis and am in the only establishment in town with WiFi.
Since our arrival back in the UK we have mainly been staying with Jon and Linda at Rackheath. They are kind enough to let us have full use of their house, treating it as a base while we get organised with appointments for ourselves and the van.
I had a cracking night out on Saturday with Katrina, where were wowed by the Wau Wau sisters (pronounced vow vow). I don't need to try and describe their show, you can see clips on You Tube. I loved their act, very different from the mainstream. I was a 'bit tired' yesterday as I quaffed Aspalls cider most of the night (as well as a couple during the day) and didn't really eat anything much. I also achieved a new milestone on Saturday and completed 10 miles of the coastal walk from Salthouse to Cromer in Norfolk. This is an annual event to remember our friend Jill who died of cancer 2 1/2 years ago. This is the furthest I have walked since the operations on my feet in 2010 and '11.
I recently attended a Travelwriting Workshop in London, hosted by Peter Carty. I rememeber him describing a blog as an on line diary. The only difference is that people will surreptitiously read a paper version and not bother with the electronic one.
I've set myself the task this week of completing the new Motorhomelifers website, so best I get on with it.
Uh oh-four mothers with babies in pushchairs have just arrived, let's hope I can stay focussed.
I love travel, any type. There is always a buzz in finding & exploring a place for the first time, meeting and making new friends and if you return things are never quite the same.
