Before we got back to the UK last week we also had some gorgeous Spring weather in Hondschoote. This is a small village about 40 minutes from Dunkirk. It has a free Aire and is conveniently located for the Channel Ferry Ports. You can see Mike in the picture below experiencing another one of his busy days at the office.
We have taken the opportunity to relax with Jon and Linda this week in Norwich. They have introduced us to the Norwich Tap House, a very nice bar in the centre of town. The experience enhanced for Mike as they served Erdinger Alcohol Free Beer, a first for a Norwich night out.
I went out last night with Paul and Katrina to see Simple Minds at the UEA in Norwich. The band was big in the '80s and I was a bit concerned when I realised I only knew three of their tracks. My concerns were unfounded. The music was superb and Jim Kerr was just such a great performer. I felt completely absorbed in watching him move on the stage. I'm convinced he was staring right at me and was just ready for the tap on the shoulder to join the group backstage after the performance. Imagination in overdrive of course, but a real treat to see such a big band in a small venue.
