When I was 17 I was so excited because I could learn to drive. Neither my Mum or Dad can drive so I was determined to be the one who could. I got my provisional license as soon as I was able to and started lessons. I couldn’t wait to have my own car and to have all of this independence to go wherever I wanted, whenever I wanted. Unfortunately, it didn’t really work out that way. My driving instructor turned out to be quite horrible and we didn’t get on very well. He shouted at me for doing something
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 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
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.
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
I have only lived in Norfolk for a 4 years and I’m still discovering all of the wonderful things there are to do here. Now that we have Erin, John and I are always looking for places to take her and new places to explore. I’ve asked for some advice from other bloggers and they’ve come up with a fun list of 9 Things To Do In Norfolk This Summer!

Today I’m really happy to have Kelly-Anne from Mimi Rose & Me guest posting. Living in Middle of Nowhere, Norfolk I don’t often to get to meet other local bloggers so it’s great to have a fellow Norfolk blogger here today! Hi, my name is Kelly-Anne, I’m a 28 year old mother to one, my cheeky little lady Amelia. I am also a wife to my lovely Tony and we have set up our forever home in the beautiful countryside of Norfolk. I first launched Mimi Rose & Me as a way to keep my brain from turning to complete mush whilst on maternity
When I lived in Nottingham while I was at university one of my favourite places to eat was a buffet restaurant called Peachy Keens. It was an all you can eat ‘everything’ kind of place and since moving away, I’ve missed it. I was so excited when I found out a Cosmo Authentic World Kitchen was opening in Norwich as it’s a very similar thing. Me, John and Erin all headed into Norwich for the day for my birthday last month and headed to Cosmo for when it opened at midday. It was a Sunday and I don’t think I
