well now I'm just being ridiculous.  
no, self, you are not allowed to cry at episodes of Antiques Roadshow just because they are set in Norwich. No, not even if they have an adorable schoolboy bringing in a letter from Nelson with a ps from Emma, Lady Hamilton. Not even if the schoolboy is accompanied by his teacher. No.
(stupid England why won't you let me move there)
(also I clearly did not visit enough old buildings when I was in Norwich. one day I'd love to go back.)

*hugs* I start crying and my mood tanks every time I watch anything set in Oxford. I was watching Lewis recently and part of it was in Abingdon and I just. I just couldn't take it.

So, *hugs* you're not the only one and it is totally allowed because sometimes the only way to deal with missing places is to cry.

*hugs back* sorry to hear that, dear.

I was only in Norwich for six months, really - so in some ways it's more like I'm nostalgic for a future I won't get to have.

Although they were also an oddly important six months in terms of my growing-up process (just the fact that I was brave enough to go is a big deal, given how travel-phobic I am), so there's that too.

I also tear up more often than not whenever I watch something set in Oxford or Cambridge. You really aren't alone there.

It was peculiar, though! Usually I'm just sort of "awww, Norwich," or maybe a little nostalgic. But today I went all teary and sad. General life confusion to blame, probably. :)
