5 Affordable Ways to Style Your Summerhouse

Collaborative post Let’s set the scene. You recently bought a summerhouse from your local garden centre and have had it installed (or you were feeling brave and built it yourself from a flat-pack kit). Your summerhouse looks excellent and is ready for you and your family and friends to use. However, you can’t help but think that your new summerhouse is missing some styling to make it more unique and to your taste. So how can you customise it and the surrounding area without breaking the bank? Take a look at these affordable ideas for

Best Lego Sets for Your Kids Aged 4 to 7

AD | Collaborative post The age of four to seven is the best time to introduce Legos to your kids. While Lego sets can be very overwhelming at first, especially for the younger ones, the kids can eventually get the hang of building Lego bricks. Lego sets are not just toys for your kids to pass the time with. The best thing about allowing your kids to play and build with Legos is that they also help refine your kid’s motor skills and enhance their creativity. Most Lego sets are themed around a particular story

Seaside afternoon tea at The Assembly House, Norwich

On of my absolutely favourite places to go in Norwich is The Assembly House. I fell in love from my very first afternoon tea there and have been back so many times since then and even had an overnight stay last year.

In fact, we’re still in that house now 7 years later and don’t plan on moving again for the next few years at least.

We had no idea what we were doing and could have really done with someone explaining a few things to us. I

Shopping, a driving theory test and dinner in Norwich

At the beginning of half term John and I got to go for a very rare day out on our own. Mum had agreed to have Erin all day and take her out for lunch while we went into Norwich late in the morning. Our day out wasn’t just for no reason though; John had his driving theory test booked for the afternoon.

Summer fun at Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

When it comes to half terms and school holidays if we ask Erin where she wants to go the most her answer is almost always Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure. It’s been a firm favourite since the first time we visited back when Erin had just turned 3 and I don’t think that’s going to change any time soon. We visited again during May half term (2020) to see what some of thew newer attractions were like!
