escape!

We're off to Norfolk for a couple of nights. though we're staying with my parents in King's Lynn, Graham's aim is to go to an Assumptiontide service in Walsingham. I won't be joining him in the church but will go along for the (very complicated) ride. We're taking a bus from Lynn to Fakenham; another from Fakenham to Walsingham; after the service we'll catch a bus to Wells Next the Sea. We'll then return to Lynn on the Coast Hopper, which runs through such alluring places as Holkham, Burnham Market and Thornham (I think Thornham Creek has to be one of the most beautiful places that I know) before going on to Hunstanton and Heacham, then along the main road back to Lynn. If the weather is good we'll do a bit of hopping off and walking, but we're not holding any breath! (We could also, of course, hop from Wells to Sheringham or even Cromer before hopping back to Lynn but that might be too much excitement for one day).

And now on to the real escape...I've handed my notice in at work despite not having found another job yet. Sometimes bold moves have to be made and this is one of those times.

Have a great time. When you go through Hunstanton look out for the lighthouse, this is were we stayed last year.
I bet you feel a weight lifted after handing in your notice, sometime you have to do what feels right even if it doesn't seem the most logical thing to do. Just think of all the extra spinning and crochet time. I am sure you'll find something perfect jobwise soon.

I remember childhood holidays in Heacham. We used to stay in an old Gypsy caravan in a field just beyond the level crossing. We had a beach hut and I remember spending day after day on the beach and collecting cockles which my gran and I used to eat by the bucketful. Wonderful days - I revisited in the 80's but there were loads and loads of static caravans there by then.

I love it over that way. Walsingham is such a peaceful place. Hope you have a good time, and good luck with finding a new job. Life's too short to stay somewhere you don't want to be, so well done for being brave!

Have a wonderful time in Norfolk - as Mary-Lou says, there IS a wonderful yarn shop in Sheringham, on Station Road! Good luck with the job hunt too...
