It’s been a long time and a different life since I last visited Norwich but Heather and I returned there (it had been even longer for her), mainly thanks to a game of “where are the trains actually running to” over Easter. Turns out there are way more churches than I remember, but we still had a lovely time.
Following our cartographic interlude, Heather and I’s wonderful day out continued with lunch in a nearby pub, where I had a perfectly nice bowl of chips and Heather one of the worst mac and cheese she can remember. Anyway, we weren’t there for long, for we had an appointment with a little train.
In the end that went pretty much as expected. This side is way ahead of where they should be (in league position and reaching a cup final). They just don’t have the quality yet. I hoped and dreamed these players could take the silverware because they deserve something for the efforts they’ve put in, and to just ask Steve fucking Bruce what he thought. But unlike 20-odd years ago the feeling is we’ll be back, and with a better squad. So a lot of these players I suspect will be gone when we win something (and the owners careful planning and dedication tells me we will win more than a league cup). I won’t forget their efforts to get us to that position though.
Onwards and upwards. Look forward to beating these lot at Wembley next time. HWTL
A certain Gem was a guest over Christmas, and expressed a desire to visit an exhibition at the Science Museum. As she’s a maths student Heather and I agreed to go with her. The exhibition wasn’t all that, but at least it was the Science Museum.
