It's still pretty even though it was bad weather

Woke up and Warrens mom made us bacon sandwiches which I have never had before but it was really good! Watched some programme on Holly oaks and then an episode of Friends and then Warren and I headed out to do some site seeing. Warren was driving in his moms car and we went to Winterton to go to the beach!! It was really windy and cold for a beach but it was still really nice. We walked along for a bit and then headed into Norwich. It took a while to get some parking but we did at the Mall and we went and had a coffee to warm up and wake up. After that we went to the Norwich castle! Because it was closing in a hour we only had to pay a pound and we got to “pop in for a pound!” It was pretty cool there was lots to read and what not.

Love it!
So we were there for awhile and then we drove back to Norfolk to drop off the car. Warrens mom had made this awesome home cooked meal of roast chicken, potatoes, veggies, and Yorkshire puddings. We were only gonna have a little as we were supposed to be going out with Warrens friends for dinner but his mom totally filled up our plates hehe. It was great though cause I haven’t had a home cooked meal like that in ages. Then it took like half hour to vacuum seal the blanket into a bag and then we headed back into Norwich to meet up with Warren’s friends. It was Helen, Gareth, Christian and Abbey and then me and warren and we went to this little thai place for dinner. It was really good I got some chicken noodle dish and had some thai beer. We were the only ones in the restaurant though haha.

After dinner we went to a pub but it was too busy so we decided to go to another pub. We headed to the Playhouse which was a little pub by the river I think. It was really funky inside and decorated. There were a whole bunch of plastic animals hanging from the ceiling it was pretty sweet. So we stayed there for a while. We just kind of hovered around people until they got up and then we jacked their table! Some lady with really big boobs and fake hair came on to Helen in the bathroom which was pretty funny. We were all trying to spot this lady but sadly we did not see her again. After that we headed to another bar called the Artichoke. Apparently it’s the trashy bar of Norwich and it reminded me of how Tommy’s is the trashy bar of Maple Ridge back home. We were there for a bit and we did some (bad) dancing. At the end of the night when we were all just hanging out some lady pulled Warren onto the dance floor. I donno I guess she liked him but it was pretty funny. Then we headed back to Gareth and Helens were I`m pretty sure I feel asleep rather quickly hehe.
