We Had A Nice Anniversary, If A Little Cold, Windy And Rainy!

Here in Norfolk, we were forecast strong winds and lots of rain. The forecast was correct but we still managed to have a nice anniversary. We’ve now been married for 13 years and have been together for 15 years.

Market Gates Shopping Centre

It was cold, windy and rainy all day but we didn’t want to sit indoors again. I got wrapped up and off we went to do some shopping.
We went to Market Gates shopping centre and just inside the entrance we came across a wonderful Enchanted Wood display. It’s been made by members of the Louise Hamilton Trust who have been raising money to build a 10-bed hospice unit in the grounds of the James Paget University Hospital.

Enchanted Wood

I’ve always loved anything to do with fairies and I was delighted when I saw this enchanted wood. The amount of work that has gone into it is amazing.

We had a late lunch because we’d had a late breakfast. We just grabbed a cone of chips from the covered market. The only stalls that we open were food stalls! It was freezing but I really enjoyed my chips!



When we were all shopped out, we drove to Gorleston-On-Sea and just sat in the car park on the seafront and watched the waves. There’s something fascinating about the sea, especially when it’s a bit stormy 🙂


Nice Anniversary Dinner

Ant cooked a delicious anniversary dinner for us. We had pork steaks, Brussels, deliciously creamy mashed potato and Diane sauce.
I really enjoyed it even though I was stuffed afterwards!

Marques de Caceres Wine

Last week we were sent some Marques de Caceres bottles of wine to review. I saved them to bring on holiday with us and Ant had the Rosado Rosé wine last night with our special dinner. I decided to just have some fruit juice because I’m not a big fan of wine and we forgot to buy some lemonade so I could have a spritzer!
He said the flavour was really nice but it was a little too dry for his taste. It won’t go to waste, though, we’re going to get some lemonade today 🙂

Marques de Caceres wine

Marques de Caceres Verdejo White (£8.99)

Lovely aromatic white wine from the highly regarded Rueda region, full of character and balanced acidity. Expect nutty, herbaceous and citrus notes. Pairs well with spicy foods and grilled fish.


Marques de Caceres Rosado Rosé (£8.49)

A blend of 96% Tempranillo and 4% Grenache grapes, Marques de Caceres Rosado Rose Wine is an attractive pink wine with floral, berry notes


Marques de Caceres Blanco White (£8.49)

Marques de Caceres Blanco is a rich and dry white wine. Minerals lace through notes of grapefruit and pear, making this a fresh and crisp feeling wine on the palate.
