Rocking Pooling In West Runton

One of Erin’s favourite places to go is the beach but just the other week she got to experience it in a completely different way. Just after the Bank Holiday we were at a bit of a loss for something to do on the Tuesday in half term. We had the idea of taking Erin for her first rock pooling experience in West Runton, Norfolk so took the 20 minute drive to get there. Stupidly, we figured that because the weather was a bit miserable the beach would be pretty quiet. When we arrived at the beach it was super

A Day Out At Pensthorpe National Park

Last Bank Holiday weekend we were able to go for a really nice family day out together. My sister and her partner live with us at the moment and have a new car so we were able to go somewhere further afield than we normally could. After spending quite some time researching places we could go we finally decided on Pensthorpe National Park in Fakenham, Norfolk. Pensthorpe is about a 45-50 minute drive away from us as it’s in West Norfolk rather than North Norfolk but the drive was quite smooth and Erin was really excited about being in the

Erin’s First Visit To The Circus

Erin goes to a pretty amazing school and we knew immediately that it was the one for her when we went to look around. Earlier this week the school had a visit from Circus Ferrel. This is a circus with a bit of a difference as it’s not the kind of thing you go to normally. This circus was set in the school grounds and it is actually a circus that makes visits to school. During the day the circus teaches workshops to the children and all of this is free of charge to the school. (They cover Norfolk, Suffolk, North Essex

A Mummy And Daughter Day In Wroxham

It seems like a strange thing to say but I don’t really get much quality time with Erin. To start with, Erin goes to nursery from 8:45 to 3:30 on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and we also do swimming lessons on a Monday. I know that leaves us 3 days a week but there are still other things going on. John will take Erin swimming or to the park most Sundays so I generally don’t get time with Erin until the afternoon. We also have my sister and brother in law living with us at the moment and Erin would

A Day Trip To Wroxham Barns, Norfolk

A couple of weeks ago when John was off work we got to have a day out with some good friends which was long overdue. The weather was supposed to be nice so we planned a day to Wroxham Barns which is in Hoveton, Norfolk. Unfortunately, we don’t go here very often because we don’t drive and you can’t walk there from the Hoveton/ Wroxham train station due to there being no footpath. The weather forecast told a big fat lie and the morning was actually pretty miserable. Erin had cried during the whole 15 minute car journey and it

Restaurant Review: Giraffe World Kitchen, Norwich

John and I love going out for meals even though we don’t get to do it too often. I’m a lot pickier about food than he is so we generally tend to go to the same places. Recently though we tried somewhere a bit different. Giraffe World Kitchen has just been rebranded and we were invited to see the changes and to try out their food! Giraffe World Kitchen is in a great location in Norwich, situated outside intu: Chapelfield. It’s a 2 storey restaurant with outdoor seating on both floors! We arrived at 11:30 so a little late for

A Rainy Day In Cambridge

Yesterday you may have seen our review of Pint Shop in Cambridge. Katy from KatyKicker has been taking part in Greater Anglia’s #lettheadventurebegin campaign, as I did a couple of weeks ago when we took a trip to Lowestoft. We hadn’t seen each other since April at Blog On so I was looking forward to a catch up. Unfortunately, the started off pretty miserably as it was chucking it down with rain and showed no signs of stopping for the rest of the day. Erin was tired and grumpy on both trains we had to take to get to Cambridge

Restaurant Review: Pint Shop, Cambridge

Last week I spent a day in Cambridge with Katy from KatyKicker and her gorgeous daughter Daisy. We both arrived at around 11am and after a couple of hours of travelling on the train I was getting pretty hungry. Thanks to Greater Anglia and their #lettheadventurebegin campaign, we already had somewhere booked for lunch. I couldn’t wait to get to Pint Shop, Cambridge. (There is another location in Oxford) Pint Shop is about a 20 minute walk from Cambridge Station and only a minutes walk from the market and the Grand Arcade Shopping Centre. Being in the centre of Cambridge
