Sealife Great Yarmouth Review

Erin LOVES fish. Ever since we took her to the Sealife London Aquarium a couple of months ago she has been obsessed. When we had to opportunity to go to another Sealife, I jumped at the chance. We made the most of this too and had a family day trip to Great Yarmouth. Although we arrived at about 11am on a weekday, Sealife Great Yarmouth was pretty busy! There must have been 2 or 3 school groups visiting at the same time as us. However, we got through the entrance quickly and had a couple of photos taken before heading

A Family Trip To Great Yarmouth

A couple of weeks ago John took an extra day off work as he’d built up some time and we headed off on an adventure to Great Yarmouth for the day. Great Yarmouth is only an hour away from us on the bus but I’ve only ever been once before. As soon as we got to Great Yarmouth we started our day off with a naughty McDonald’s breakfast. We only just managed this though as we got there at 10:22! Erin had loads of fun with coffee stirrers and ate a bit of a hash brown but she wasn’t really

Hotel Review: Motel One, Manchester

In April I attended my first ever Blog On Conference. The trip to Manchester from Norfolk was a very long one, especially with a toddler in tow. Actually, John sorted Erin out for the majority of the train journey while I either slept or watched YouTube videos. Having only been to this city once about 10 years ago, I made sure I booked a hotel as close to the train station as possible and that was Motel One Manchester. There aren’t many hotels closer than this, with it being a short walk away. When I say short, it’s across the road.

A Family Trip To Cromer Beach

John and I are very lucky to live where we do. We live in a small town in North Norfolk and we are surrounded by gorgeous beaches. For some reason though, up until last weekend we had never taken Erin to the beach. Well, we took her when she was really little bit she didn’t even touch the sand. We were supposed to spend the day in Great Yarmouth but rearranged due to something that was going on there that day. Not wanting to stay at home, we headed to Cromer which is a short 10 minute train ride away.

Daddy and Erin’s Day at the Zoo

Lyndsey recently went to London for a couple of days and I took the time off work to spend with Erin.  It is such a rare occurrence that we get to spend time alone together that I knew I didn’t just want to sit around at home with her. It just so happens that we have annual passes to the local zoo in Cromer.  Erin loves animals and so do I do it seemed like the perfect thing to do with her. We caught the train and arrived at the zoo for when it opened at 10am.  I thought this

London Duck Tours

I have been to London many times before but something I have never done is to go on a bus tour. During my recent London Getaway I decided to change this. Me, my sister and her boyfriend were really excited to be heading off on a London Duck Tour. When we arrived at the Duck Tour bus stop near the Southbank Center I was really excited. The ‘Duck’ was sat there waiting for us. I knew that it was a bit of a mix between a  bus and a boat seeing as it went in the water on the tour.

Selfies with Dinosaurs at Jurassic Kingdom

On a recent trip to London I was determined to do something a little bit different. When the opportunity to go to Jurassic Kingdom arose, I jumped at the chance. Who doesn’t want to go somewhere with life size dinosaurs? Me, my sister and her boyfriend most certainly did. When we headed to Osterley Park, ,about 25 minutes outside of central London, we had no idea what to expect from Jurassic Kingdom. We didn’t even know if we were really in the right place until we got right up to Osterley House when signs became a bit clearer. Having never been
