Photo: Jon Williamson (c) copyright newzulu.com This weekend is not going to see a return of Monday’s glorious bank holiday weather that drew thousands to the north Norfolk coast. But May 12-13 still should be nice enough to get out and enjoy the many fun events happening across north Norfolk, even if it might be wise to take your brolly. The Met has forecast highs of 12 to 13 degrees for Cromer and Sheringham on both Saturday and Sunday. And according to Norwich-based forecasting service Weatherquest, moderate rain will develop during the afternoon. A Weatherquest forecaster said: “It will be a dry, bright start to the day across the region with some sunny spells, but we will see cloud on the increase toward midday and throughout the afternoon, and eventually some outbreaks of rain spreading in from the south.” The forecaster said a few heavier spells … [Read more...] about What will the weather be like on the north Norfolk coast this weekend?

This is one of those rare weekends when I'm sad that I'm not working. Or at least not getting ready for work stuff. For the first time in about 10 years I'm not getting ready to head to Google I/O and it's bothering me a little. And to be honest, it's also making me a little annoyed. I've had to deal with some back surgery over the past winter holidays and I'm sitting this year out. Don't laugh, because one day you'll be old, too. Normally I'd be making sure I had a handful of SD cards and camera batteries to cram into my rucksack or grabbing a handful of travel-sized toiletries from the drug store. Happily gathering the stuff I needed to head out to California for the best damn week a geek could ever have. Like health insurance or vacation days, Google I/O is something I consider a job benefit. This year I had to opt-out because i don't think I want to deal with one part of it — Shoreline Amphitheater's horrible accessibility. On a good year it's bad enough that I need to hit … [Read more...] about Let’s cheer each other up in the weekend comments thread!

Picture: Nick Butcher Archant © 2018 For many of us, bad weather is a minor annoyance – but for tourism businesses too much of it can mean the difference between managing or foundering. Cley Marshes.

But with a balmy and sunny Bank Holiday weekend expected – with the mercury expected to rise to 20C on Saturday and 21C on Sunday – attractions and accommodation providers around the county are eager to make up for lost time.

The French have a reputation for always being on holiday. But do they really get more time off than the rest of us? And what happens if a bank holiday falls on a Sunday? First things first. Everyone who works in France is entitled to five weeks’ paid holiday (congé payé) every year, regardless of their contract type, whether they work full-time or part-time, and how long they’ve been working for the company. Now for the trickier part. French workers are entitled to 30 business days (jours ouvrables), which is every day of the week except Sunday. However, since most people work five days a week, this means 25 concrete days off every year. On the other hand, working days (jours ouvrés) are the days your company is open, typically Monday to Friday. No holiday for the first year of work Something which often surprises foreigners who are looking forward to the generous holidays they've heard so much about is that they might have to wait a while before … [Read more...] about Members’ Q&A: How many holidays do the French really get every year?
