Last Day of the Holiday

Up early, did lots of washing then once it was pegged on the line, we went off to enjoy the sunshine in Norwich [after a trip to use Christine’s PC]


The view from the top of the carpark – the cathedral and other churches. They used to say the city has “A church for every Sunday of the year and a pub for every other day” Don’t know if that’s still true.

We walked up through the market to St Peter Mancroft.


In 1978, we went into H Samuel opposite and bought a diamond ring, then went and sat in the church together, and Bob put the engagement ring on my finger where it has been ever since.

Outside is a statue of Sir Thomas Browne, the scientist and philosopher – with stranger sculptures of a brain, and the names of all his books…


Bob – my very brainy Top man!











This one says “Vulgar Errors!”




We listened to a great busker playing “Moon River”


M&S were celebrating their birthday


The Maddermarket Theatre is a great building, near where Will Kemp,the Tudor Actor began his famous Morris Dance to London in 1600 [why would anybody do that?]




And we came home in the afternoon – the washing was dry and we sat outside for a cuppa



A very satisfactory end to a wonderful week. We both feel really rested and grateful for the chance to switch off and relax together.

Saturday will be back to work…


  1. what a lovely, relaxing day together. Looks like an interesting town to explore - I'll put it on my list for when we return to the UK :)

  2. Oh, to be able to hang the laundry outside again like I used when I was young!! Lovely photos! Sounds like you had a terrific time together! God bless you in your ministry!

  3. Haven't been to Norwich for ages! But it is certainly a lovely place, and your photos are great!

    Its been a great time lately for hanging washing out!


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
