Family information

I live alone, in my early 60s and very active and young at heart. I love walking and going to live music. My friends, daughter and her husband (in their 20s) live nearby and they like to have barbecues. My main hobbies are cooking, walking and going to live music and theatre. There is plenty to do in Norfolk and Norwich whatever your preferences.
