This season Debbie Thompson is looking forward to…

Eating: at Shambles Bistro in North Walsham ( We are so lucky to have such a welcoming restaurant full of atmosphere and local delicious food!   

Drinking: at The Gunton Arms (, which I am pleased to say is my local! I love to sit outside and watch the deer as they roam across the grounds.  

Cooking: for my friends. They have to be good friends as I am not known for my culinary skills – but by shopping at Tavern Tasty Meats in Swafield (, for locally raised produce, I also get advice on how to cook each dish! 

Shopping: at Red Lobster Gallery in Sheringham (; this is a wonderful shop with so many items I would love to fill my house with!  

Visiting: Blickling Hall ( I love experiencing the different seasons there and the fact I can combine walking with shopping and eating in one place!

Staying: at The Pigs in Edgefield ( which is a real luxury with a spa and fantastic food! 

Reading: Alexander McCall Smith’s latest ‘No.1 Ladies Detective Agency’ story – coming out in paperback this summer!
