Retiring Norwich

On Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

Norwich is a retiring kind of town, the perfect place to hang up your boots. The micro-loft is the ideal roost, a lift just wide enough for a mobility scooter (I fancy a tiffany blue number with a harlequin shopping basket in fuchsia), tiny bills that won’t break the piggy bank and a small enough footprint to make light work of domestic drudgery. We’re spitting distance from the local quack for all those inconvenient ailments that get us all in the end. The medical centre comes with a handy on-site Boots for the pills and potions that will keep us going beyond our three score and ten (fingers crossed). And, when one of us does drop off the perch, the Co-operative Funeral Parlour is right next door (I hear they do a lovely spread) with the Samaritans opposite for the grieving widower. Should either of us try to hedge our bets by finding Jesus at the last minute, we’ve got a church on the corner. Amen to that.

 

About - In 2010, Jack started an irreverent narrative about his new life in Turkey and Perking the Pansies became one of the most popular English language blogs on that side of Aegean. As the blog developed a head of steam, a growing worldwide audience clamoured for a book. Jack duly obliged and his hilarious (well, he thinks so) memoir, Perking the Pansies, Jack and Liam move to Turkey hit the streets at Christmas 2011. The book became a critically acclaimed, award winning best seller and its success has opened out a whole new career for Jack as an author. Jack and Liam decided to end their Anatolian affair and paddle back to Britain on the evening tide. They washed up in Norwich, a little gem in eastern England. Jack's now on a Turkey roll. He's released the best of the blog as a two part e-book, Turkey, the Raw Guide and Turkey, Surviving the Expats. The uncensored director's cut includes previously unpublished material together with solid advice about the extra-ordinary land that Jack called home for four years. Jack likes to be functional as well as decorative.
