So this is my last entry on my holiday in Norfolk with all sorts of random bits in it.
So, Wednesday. One of Josh’s friends came round and we messed around on the ever tiring Xbox Kinect and then went into the lovely little town of Wroxham. The local broads around there are really nice though I did find the town a little odd. The majority of shops there are called Roy’s. This brand exists nowhere outside the county yet in Wroxham virtually everything is Roy’s. The garden centre, the supermarket, the department store, the toy store…The list goes on. It was all a bit odd. There is also a McDonald’s though and this helped with my ongoing quest to collect Monopoly stickers.
Wednesday evening saw the return of Josh’s brother from university and I was able to witness the full family dynamic. Josh and his brother fight and argue like any other brothers do and that sort of relationship is always amusing to witness. I accompanied the family for a meal in an American Burger Bar in Norwich and had a truly delicious chicken burger. It was amazing. I do love a nice chicken burger.
This morning, after something of a lie-in, we watched Disney Pixar film Up. Essentially an old man follows his and his late wife’s dream to go exploring but by accident he manages to take a small kid with him and all hell breaks loose when he arrives. It’s very funny and deals with some very touching issues of death and old age. It’s a lovely little film and once again Pixar made another fantastic movie!
Eventually the time came for me to leave the flat county and return back to Hampshire and my home. I had a lovely time in Norfolk and here is yet another excuse to say thank you to Josh for such a lovely time! It was lovely! Sadly my return journey was not exactly pleasant. Thanks to a fatality at Wimbledon my train was delayed by an hour at London Waterloo. Due to this delay the train became packed and there were people sat all the way down the aisle. I also hadn’t had anything to eat or drink for hours and by the time I got off the train I was starving. In the end I was an hour and half later than I should have been. Not good!
So now I am back home for three weeks which is rather nice. Quite what I am going to do for these weeks I don’t know. I have an assignment to do and also a video to make. All our housemates are making a video of where they live for general entertainment and to disband stereotypes. I am rather looking forward to making this work of art…
