Weekend away

Trish was the lucky prize winner of a weekend away in Norfolk in the raffle held at the Jolie exhibition back in June. She kindly invited Linda, Julie, Karen and Dany to go with her - so winners all round. We had great fun trawling round the antique shops in Holt (and Brandon and Swaffham on the way - you know us).
We picked up some great bits and pieces. Linda made a still life back at the cottage with lead cowboys and indians, a pretty little tray and the sweetest tea and sugar travelling tin (tea one end, sugar the other).
As usual we ate our way round Norfolk.
Tea in Byford's, Holt, dinner at The Hero, Burnham Overy Staithe....breakfast at The Burnham Deepdale Diner.
After a few gins, Linda tried on her tablecloth wedding dress. According to Dany's dream (too much cake perhaps!) there was a grand wedding, Dany was maid of honour with Nana Mouskouri as celebrity guest in choice kaftan purchased in Swaffham. Don't ask!

A little more demure after the previous night's fun and games we went for a little walk around Wells next the Sea. Thanks to Sue Noyes for her kind donation.
