Family Friendly Norfolk: Harriet’s Cafe Tearooms

This Family Friendly Norfolk post is all about Harriet’s Cafe Tearooms in Norwich. On 8th July, while my mum was here to stay for the week, my sister came up from London for the day. We all love afternoon tea and had walked by this place the last time we were all together. We’d made the plan in advance to see what this place was like. I called in advance the day before to book a table, letting them know at the time that we would have a pram with us. Our table was booked for 12:30 but we arrived

Grandma’s Visit

Last week we had a visit from Erin’s Grandma. I’m originally from Grimsby, where my mum still lives. She doesn’t drive so it takes her about 6 hours and a pretty expensive train ticket (there are never any cheap advance tickets) to get to us. It doesn’t matter though. On nearly every one of her weeks off from work she comes down to see us and to spend some time with Erin. We had such a fun week and did some really exciting things with Erin. Tuesday didn’t quite go to plan as Erin has been teething so we didn’t

The Husband Files: Erin’s zoo adventure

Yesterday we took Erin on a zoo adventure. Due to my work schedule I don’t get to go on fun days out with Erin so I was really excited. I was able to take a half day off from work to go and meet Lyndsey, Erin and Lyndsey’s mum at Amazona Zoo in Cromer. It’s only a mile away from where I work so I was able to get there quite quickly! Erin has never been to a zoo before now so we weren’t sure if she would even like it. However, although Amazona Zoo is not the biggest there are some cool animals

The Hoxton Hotel, Shorditch

This weekend John and I went to London for one night to see Ed Sheeran at Wembley and needed a hotel. I always like to get a hotel that’s easy to get to and from on the tube and on lines near where ever we are going. The Hoxton, Shorditch wasn’t somewhere I had stayed before but the reviews and pictures online made me take a chance… and I’m so glad I did. We booked through as it gave us the option to not pay upfront. However, an attempt was made to take payment just under a week before our stay

Theatre review: Avenue Q

Last night I went to see Avenue Q at the Norwich Playhouse with my husband, Kirsty and her husband. I have wanted to see this show for so long now but never would have picked it in London as there is always so much else to see. At £17 a ticket, this was much better priced and the theatre isn’t huge so seats are always really good. Avenue Q follows Princeton, a new graduate trying to find his purpose in life. On his journey he meets a whole host of colourful and furry characters on Avenue Q who help him to
