A Family Day Out To Sheringham

This past weekend was a very rare one where John didn’t have to work on the Saturday and we had some extra money put aside so we could go out for the day as a family. It’s not very often we do this just the three of us so we wanted to do something really fun and go somewhere sort of new. Even though I have lived in Norfolk now for six years now but somewhere I had never really been (apart from passing through) was Sheringham. We decided to make the most of the nice weather and have a

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 Greater Anglia Rail Adventure To Ely

AD | Press tickets  The first time I ever came to Norfolk I remember passing through somewhere with the most beautiful cathedral. That place was Ely in Cambridgeshire. I would pass Ely every single time I came to Norfolk and every time made me want to visit even more. It has been 7 years since I first visited Norfolk and even though I have lived here for nearly 6 years now I still haven’t made it to Ely. Greater Anglia recently got in touch to let us know that there are some great locations for days out on the network

Places To Visit Before Your Child Starts Infant School

I can’t believe that in only a few months we’ll be applying for Erin’s place at an Infant school. We only have 18 months left to take advantage of being able to go anywhere with Erin no matter what time of year it is. There are a few places that I would love to take Erin before she starts school, mainly because I know it would be cheaper for us! (Images are from some other blogger’s reviews! Be sure to check them out) Disneyland Paris This is a bit of a biggie and I’m pretty sure we won’t be able

7 Great Outdoor Days Out In Norfolk

AD | We received press tickets to some of these locations Before moving to Norfolk I can honestly say I really wasn’t much of an outdoorsy type. I would have much preferred to stay inside, in the warm, and watch a film or read a book. Norfolk is such a beautiful place though and especially since having Erin, we have tried to get out and about a lot more. If you’re looking for something to do in Norfolk here are some ideas for outdoor days out: Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park had been somewhere I wanted to

The Average Cost Of A Family Day Out

Just a couple of weeks ago we experienced our first real February half term. Of course, we have been through half terms before but Erin went to the holiday club at her previous nursery but we don’t have that option any more. This time it was just me and Erin from Monday to Saturday and I had to figure out how to fill our week. It’s very rare that we have much (or any) spare money unless I really plan out finances down to the last penny and months in advance. We didn’t actually do too much this half term

February Half Term At Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

AD – We received complimentary entry to Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure. All opinions are our own.  Back when I moved to Norfolk in 2013 and started working at a soft play centre I heard so many things about Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure. At the time we didn’t have any children so it’s taken some time to getting around to visit. However, now that Erin is 3 and this week has been her first half term from nursery, it seemed like a great time to go and we planned to make a day of it with friends. We arrived at just before 9:30 so

Highlights Of 2018

As years go, I think 2018 has been pretty amazing for a lot of different reasons. Of course, we had some really bad times too with things around the house breaking and costing us money as well as being broke a lot of the time due to paying Erin’s nursery fees every month. Instead of focusing on things that couldn’t be helped I thought I’d write a post about the great things we’ve done in 2018. Majorca In April we went on our very first family holiday abroad to Port de Pollensa in Majorca. We chose somewhere only a couple
