Such was the weekend for us! On Friday we went up to Cromer for Phil and Esther’s wedding. We travelled up by train, it took about two hours. We got there in plenty of time and had lunch at a little cafe near to the church. The service was at Cromer Parish Church – St Peter and St Paul’s. It was a really beautiful church, apparently it has the highest tower in the county! The service went really well and we very much enjoyed it.
The reception was held at a place in North Walsham. The meal was lovely and we had a good chat on our table, but unfortunately we couldn’t stay for the dancing afterwards because we had to catch a train. The journey back home was fairly uneventful!
On Saturday we got up bright and early for the journey out to Stroud, near Gloucester. Phil’s cousin Steve was getting married – it was only a registry office ceremony which we didn’t get to (it was quite early on in the day, and also they didn’t want to have loads of people there because of limited space), we just went to the reception afterwards.
I think the highlight of the afternoon for me was Mitch Benn: Steve is apparently a big fan of his, and emailed him on the off chance about doing a little gig at the wedding. Anyway, he came and did a 15 minutes set during the afternoon – some of his songs are absolutely hilarious! My favourite was probably the epic symphonic rock version of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”, but the Ikea song was also brilliant.
Aaaanyway. Nothing much else happened for the rest of the weekend, probably the only other thing that happened of note was watching “Silence in the Library” – this week’s Doctor Who, written by the newly-named successor to Russell T Davies, Steven Moffat. I thought it was a great episode – not surprisingly from Steven Moffat, probably one of the best so far in this series. In fact I would even venture to say that the second part will be better than the first, which is unusual for two-parters… but then I could be wrong! Can’t wait for next week…
