Two Weekends In One !


Easter weekend we all went to Wroxham. Chaos as usual at the bridge (not guilty) so we all piled onto the paddle steamer for a two hour childrens Easter cruise. Grace identified all the birds pictured around the boat (with just a little help - she's really paid attention on those boat trips with us) and she won herself an Easter egg which didn't last too long. At Wroxham barns she made some friends as she went round the petting farm. The pics are below.





This last weekend I went through the tunnel to France and Belgium. For those of you who wonder why so many people still do what's known as "The Booze Cruise", the prices for cigarettes and wines are so much cheaper than THIS EU country (touch of sarcasm there).

Just to compare, typically cigarettes here in the region of £6.50 in Belgium cost £4.10 so on a carton of 200 the saving is £24.00. You may remember that HMRC from October 1st 2011 reduced the recommended import for an individual from 3200 down to just 800. But that is just a 'recommended' amount. There is actually no legal limit within EU countries and the party I travelled with on average brought back about 3000 passing through customs with no inspection. Similarly, wine bought in France is considerably cheaper. I bought a few cases of Blossom Hill retailing here for £4.99 when it's on offer! At the wine warehouse in Calais a case of six bottles cost £11.65 - FOR SIX BOTTLES! Mind you, the limit is for 120 bottles per person. Ahem!
