10 things I’ll do once I am driving!

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that I have *finally* booked my driving test in early November.

It’s safe to say I have a list as long as my arm of things I want to do once I pass and am finally on the road. 

Whilst most people would expect me to be off in Alice exploring the UK – there are so many things that have caught my eye in North Norfolk since I moved back in late 2016. Yes the world is my oyster, but I want to spend the winter getting to know Alice, and how she drives. I want to be confident in my driving ( I am doing a 40 hour beginner intensive course) and know I need to build these skills. Once I have spend some time behind the wheel we will be off. And I will be documenting it all on this blog and my Instagram!

But that doesn’t mean that I cant explore the local area in the time being. After all we are a tourist destination – there are SO many things to do.

Here is my top 10 – in no particular order…

Crossing The Finish Line – Day Four of Walking the Norfolk Coast Path

I spent my last morning on the Curlew Walking Holiday really making the most of my incredible accommodation. As much as I would have loved to sleep in I didn’t. But I did relax my way through the morning, with some granola, apple juice and coffee. I wrote in the guest book and soaked up the atmosphere of the tent and the campsite. 

This trip has really given me something special.

Miles of Sand and Seashells – Day Two of Walking the Norfolk Coast Path

When I rolled out of my cocoon on day two I was fully expecting to be the biggest ball of ache known to mankind. 

But all was good!!

(sometimes I forget that I cycle or walk 6 miles a day, 5 days a week, I am healthier than I think I am)

I decided on an early start so I could take my time and dawdle to my hearts content. I had had a fairly early night in the grand scheme of things so had plenty of sleep. The camp bed is such a cozy thing it was hard to get out.

I shuffled out of the campsite at 7:30 with just my backpack on my back.

Leaving the tent and my things behind. 

It was such an odd feeling just up and walking out – I felt like I had forgotten to do something. 

But magic was about to happen….

My tent was magically going to transport itself 14 miles down the coast!

I just had to walk it – and not get lost doing so.

Finding The One

Everyone searches for the one.

I’ve been searching for the last few years now.

I thought I had found the one in Merlin. I met him stuck in a muddy field when I moved back to Norfolk in 2016. I fell in love instantly.

Born in 1987 like me, he was a little quirky and needed some love. But sadly it wasn’t meant to be. He was perfect for now, but not for the long term.

Ben Folds and A Piano

I was first introduced to Ben Folds in 2008, when the sound technician at the theatre I worked at used the Ben Folds Five as sound check music. By the end of the week I had to ask him what was playing and it was instantly added to my very small iTunes library- which at the time mainly consisted of show tunes and 80s rock! (I did discover that I knew a fair few of their songs already though)

Improbable- The Paper Man

Its a festival of firsts for me this year. First time writing about dance. First time writing about music and first time at The Norwich Puppet Theatre.

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long – its a brilliant venue that I will be keeping a closer eye on for sure.

Improbable have been on my radar for years. The company were founded by Julian Crouch, Phelim McDermott, Lee Simpson and Nick Sweeting in 1996. They came up frequently during university, but our paths never crossed until now!

What do we do when fascism comes to town?
