The 1st September is sort of another go at the beginning of the year again - the new academic year heralds a fresh start in a lot of ways.
We have heard yesterday that the EFG's accommodation issues are COMPLETELY resolved and she will be able to move directly into her permanent room on Saturday - hooray!! No moving and mucking about on the 12th, worrying about being in two places at once as she had an induction booked for the same time as the moving van, and making new mates on the corridor twice!
Tomorrow the girls are off to London with my sister for a day sightseeing, and then the evening performance of War Horse, as I have already said [sorry - we are all quite excited about their day!] but it means that they are going to have a Very Long Day in the capital. Hence we have scaled back our Norfolk plans and did not go to Norwich yesterday. We're off today, we hope - and Blickling will have to wait until Easter, I think.
We're going to the Park and Ride, then we'll catch a bus into the city, where we are going to the Castle Museum. W're doing this on a budget - by going in on the P&R, we get the museum tickets for just £3.80 each, rather than the full price. Bargain. We did think about going on the train, but with the tickets for that costing over £30 for the three of us, and losing out on the P&R discount, we thought that we were probably better off driving as it isn't really that far. Hopefully we will have some decent weather today and can post some photos for you later.....
I plan to call in at an Aldi on the way home - the fridge is beginning to look a little bare, and that voucher is burning a hole in my purse!
Hope you all have a good day today xxx
