I’m with Dot and the boys visiting relatives in Norfolk. Like the rest of the UK, Norfolk has been experiencing an extended winter and it has been bitterly cold. I think the highest temperature we’ve had has been 6 degrees C but with a witheringly cold wind. Still, there’s no such thing as bad weather only bad clothes and we’ve been able to have fun on a number of little trips. On Sunday we went into Norwich to see the castle museum. On Monday we went to Ranworth Broad and the nearby Woodforde’s Brewery and pub, the fur and feather, for birdwatching and tasty real ale. On Tuesday we went to Bury St Edmunds where I had arranged to interview for a job with a maltster. It went well, but may not be ideal. I thought the job that might eventuate would be at a maltings in Athy, Co. Kildare, but apparently they need someone for head office. On Wednesday, we went to a dinosaur adventure park northwest of Norwich and on Thursday we went to a museum of rural Norfolk life at Gressenhall near Dereham. Today we’re going to take the train to visit my friend from Heriot Watt, Paul, who lives in Oulton Broad. All in all, when we return to Dublin on Saturday it should have been a thoroughly enjoyable visit to East Anglia.
