A Day Out At Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden

I moved to Norfolk in 2013 just after finishing university and I couldn’t be happier living here. I think we’re so lucky to live in such a beautiful area of the country and there’s so much on offer here. Unfortunately, we don’t have a car and can’t drive so we can’t normally get to a lot of places on my to visit wish list. Sometimes we go for days out with my sister and her fiance, who do have a car, so we always try to pick somewhere that we couldn’t go to otherwise. One of our most recent days

A Home Without Pets

You may have a read one of our posts a couple of days ago where we explained that one of our rabbits, Mopsy, had passed away. This was a really hard day for us all, me especially I think, and I had just been coming to terms with the fact that he was gone. Erin also seemed to have understood that he’d died and he couldn’t come back after we explained what had happened to her. We thought that we could get on with things and make a new normal for us all. After a really nice day out on

But I Don’t Want To Go To School…

This is something I’ve been hearing a lot recently; ‘But I don’t want to go to school.’ I don’t think I was expecting to hear something like this from Erin for at least another couple of years. The week following the Easter holidays is when Erin’s funded education hours finally kicked in. After waiting since January we were finally able to make the most of her being entitled to 30 free hours. Erin started a new nursery in January but seemed to settle in immediately and she got excited about going near enough every day. The setting, a Montessori nursery,

How To Help Your Child Deal With The Death Of A Pet

On Friday night our pet rabbit Mopsy sadly died. When I was cooking dinner on Friday I just happened to look out of the window and I saw him laying on the floor so I immediately went out to him. The second that I saw him I knew that was it. Mopsy was around 5 and a half years old which for a rabbit, is pretty good going. We got him when we moved into this house and he got ill quite quickly. After 4 rounds of medication the vet said it wasn’t working and that Mopsy wouldn’t live for another

Home Improvement Plans For The Future

AD | Paid collaboration Our house is still a big work in progress and we have so much still to do. When we bought this house we did so thinking it would probably be our forever home and that we could make any changes or additions where we need to down the line. I really believe that you need to live somewhere at least for a few years before you can really know what you want to do with the space. Now that we have lived here for 5 years, and now have a child, we have a list of

Does My Child Need A Tutor?

AD | Collaborative post Private tuition is a fantastic way to support a child’s education outside of the classroom, and simultaneously provides them with a personal mentor and another role model. Many parents hire a private tutor to help their child with their studies, particularly during exam periods. But how do you know if your child actually needs a tutor? Manor Lodge School have the following advice. One of the most obvious signs that your child needs a tutor is a significant drop in grades, in one or more subject. However, before you hire someone to help get the grades

Staying In A Woodland Lodge at Kelling Heath Holiday Park

AD | Press trip On our recent stay at Kelling Heath Holiday Park in North Norfolk we stayed in one of their two bedroom woodland lodges. Kelling Heath do offer other accommodation options such as camping and luxury holiday homes. We instantly liked the look of the lodges though due to us having stayed in something similar elsewhere before. As Erin still has naps while we’re away we wanted somewhere we could spread out and enjoy while we weren’t out exploring. Living area and kitchen Erin likes to spread out when we’re away, especially when we bring toys and things

Our Woodland Adventure At Kelling Heath Holiday Park

AD | Press trip This year we are making the effort to make the most of our local area. We recently stayed at Kelling Heath Holiday Park in North Norfolk for four nights in a woodland lodge. I was desperate for some time away from home to relax and also to spend some quality time with John and Erin. Sometimes it’s so easy to pick a city destination but we all needed some time together that wasn’t as busy and rushed. Our stay was from Monday to Friday and as soon as we arrived we felt at peace.
