A week in Norfolk

Hi everyone!
Sorry I’ve been away for so long, I’m under so much pressure at Uni with exams, coursework and presentations I’ve barely had time to sleep, let alone do anything else!  However, it is important to take breaks and so I thought I’d write a post about my holiday in North Norfolk over Easter for you.

  Over the Easter holidays I went away with my parents, sister and dog to stay in North Creake, which is a village in North Norfolk, which for those of you who don’t know is in the East of England.  We’ve had a few holidays in the area and I absolutely love it; there’s some beautiful beaches, lovely walks and gorgeous villages to explore.  It was just what I needed to relax and have some time with my family before exam season.
  The first evening that we were there, we went for a walk in Burnham Overy Staithe which was absolutely beautiful.  The quality of my photographs are not so great here (really need to work out how to sort that out), but you can get the general idea!
  Another day, we met up with some family on the Sandringham Estate, where the Royal Family live.  I love looking round big houses so I was in my absolute element.  The house was absolutely gorgeous – I’m very jealous of the Queen!  The grounds were also beautiful and I really enjoyed walking round and looking at the flowers and the stream.  We had a delicious picnic sat under some trees and also went into the Church where the royal family go for Christmas which was so charming.  I would definitely recommend visiting Sandringham if you’re ever in the area.

  After our day at Sandringham, we decided that we really fancied some fish and chips by the sea (just realising how English our day was!)  We drove over to Hunstanton which is nearby and enjoyed eating fish and chips and watching the sun set over the sea.  Overall, it was an absolutely lovely day.

(what is this random green dot?!)

  On the last day of our holiday we visited Walsingham.  The village is famous for its religious shrines, but is such an interesting place to visit even if you’re not religious.  It was such a beautiful place, made even more gorgeous by the sun shining.  The shrines were so interesting to visit, and while at first I thought it would be really boring, I actually had such a lovely day.

  So there’s a brief overview of my lovely week in North Norfolk.  I had a lovely time, and think it’s so important to have quality time with your family like this.  Now that I’m in the midst of exam season I really wish I could go back and have this time again.
  Did you guys have a nice Easter break (so long ago now, sorry!)?  Hope that those of you who have exams aren’t getting too stressed – remember to take breaks and keep calm, easier said than done I know!
Keep Sparkling x
