A Year in Norwich: A Week in the Life (UEA) II
Monday, 17th October  I give myself a lie-in, half by accident and half because when I notice how late it is I just accept that this is a thing that needs to happen in my life. I get up about 11.30, make some coffee and start on my to-do list for the day - ...
