Now Norwich is a nice place, with a wealth of history – from Boudicea (we love a strong woman – although I bet she didn’t actually wear what they have her in in a lot of the statues – she’d have frozen) to Nelson – he learnt to sail on the Norfolk broads – which of course actually feature in Coot Club and the Big Six – part of Arthur Ransoms Swallows and Amazons series.
So plenty of sailing tradition – and the venue for this years away cruise from the club – we didn’t make it due to a holiday clash.
But somehow I am not feeling warm and fuzzy about it. I can’t see any boats from where I am sitting on an industrial estate. I also can’t see a soon to be fixed car. Just a very broken and sad little car which didn’t mean to break down on me. At least I hope that’s what she is thinking. I’m feeling pretty grumpy about it. In fact so grumpy that I have bought a Knitting magazine and am now knitting these –
They are made out of sparkly, trashy acrylic.
You know it’s bad when it’s cheering me up this much.
