Week 106 - Trees

  • A few notes on the second half of our Norfolk holiday.
  • The weather was sunny enough for visits to Mundesley Beach and Wells Beach. We flew kites, built sandcastles, buried the boys and paddled in the sea. Very nice days out and I even coped with being sandy.
  • We did leave the sea fairly quickly when the Wells lifeguards announced that the water was unsafe. Apparently it wasn’t sewage, but we didn’t quibble.
  • Cromer pier wasn’t worth visiting.
  • We spent the day at BeWILDerwood, a forest-based adventure park with tree mazes, bridges, slides and zip lines. Although adults are charged the same as children, we spent most of the day looking up, mostly failing to keep track of our children sprinting through the treetops.
  • Triangle of Sadness was the best film I’ve seen in a while. Unpredictable from beginning to end.
  • Back home and it was H’s first match of the season, now in the under-8s. They won and H was very happy with his Zidanesque drag-back/roulette goal, an early contender for goal of the season he reckons.
  • Arsenal’s win over Man United, sealed deep in injury time, was the perfect way to end the week. Plenty of tension and shouting. Nice to get what we deserved for a change.
