  1. I’ve sketched at Blickling and love the place. Whoever does their twitter account seemed to like my drawings. I’d recommend a trip there to anyone it’s got such a lovely feel to it. I try to go when there’s the photographic exhibition there by Norfolk photographers as their work’s stunning.

  2. I love the National Trust. I lived in the UK (Kent, Essex and Isle of Wight) for just over 2 years, and had National Trust membership for most of that – it meant I did a lot more sightseeing around the UK than I might otherwise have done. It also meant that if I only had 1/2 hour to spend at a place that was okay and I didn’t feel like I had to spend hours at each place I visited “just to get my money’s worth” as my Dad would say. I didn’t make it to Norfolk while I was there, but it’s on the list for next time I go back.
