The wait is over!

Our baggage has arrived at last – or at least, most of it! We are missing our carpet, a hammock, and one other box, the contents of which we have yet to identify. Fortunately, everything fits into the shed with room to spare; which is such a relief! We can now gradually repack into our plastic bins and recycle all the packing materials (although I did read that much of the recycling done in the UK ends up in landfill sites anyway!).

Last night, John and Clare treated us to a wonderful meal at Prezzo’s in Norwich, courtesy of Baracuda’s where John has worked for the past four weeks. We all ate far too much, but the food was delicious and the service was excellent.

Today, Clare and David ran in the Reepham Summer Sunday Run. This 10 km run went out through country lanes and back along a disused railway track. The weather was very kind and they only had one small shower of rain the whole morning (unlike now when it is coming down in torrents). Clare and David ran together and covered the course very comfortably in 53 min 10 sec and were placed 54th and 55th (David was placed 4th in the over 60s race). Every competitor received a souvenir paperweight and David was awarded a spot prize of complementary family tickets for the North Norfolk railway. Evidence of their run can be seen at http://www.reephamrunners.co.uk/rrssr.htm
