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! Emily Peacock We didn’t visit in summer, but Pensthorpe was a fantastic day out! Exploring Pensthorpe Natural Park in the Autumn Emily and Indiana Rebecca Fisher We love Bewilderwood! Our adventure in the
I have been to London many times before but something I have never done is to go on a bus tour. During my recent London Getaway I decided to change this. Me, my sister and her boyfriend were really excited to be heading off on a London Duck Tour. When we arrived at the Duck Tour bus stop near the Southbank Center I was really excited. The ‘Duck’ was sat there waiting for us. I knew that it was a bit of a mix between a bus and a boat seeing as it went in the water on the tour.
On a recent trip to London I was determined to do something a little bit different. When the opportunity to go to Jurassic Kingdom arose, I jumped at the chance. Who doesn’t want to go somewhere with life size dinosaurs? Me, my sister and her boyfriend most certainly did. When we headed to Osterley Park, ,about 25 minutes outside of central London, we had no idea what to expect from Jurassic Kingdom. We didn’t even know if we were really in the right place until we got right up to Osterley House when signs became a bit clearer. Having never been
Last week I did something I didn’t think I’d do for a really long time. I went away for a couple of days without Erin or John. Part of realising that I have PND also meant that I realised that I need some me time now and again. So, I headed off to London for a night to see my sister and her fiance (Nat & Chris). It was also a kind of late birthday present too. I arrived late morning on the Thursday and we started off with a Wetherspoons breakfast before heading off to Jurassic Kingdom (Review coming
When it comes to doing things with Erin, I like to find new places to take her. On Tuesdays we try to meet up with a group of friends we used to do Baby Yoga with and get the children together but we don’t like to do the same thing every week. A few weeks ago we went to Twinkle’s Town in Norwich. Twinkle’s Town is not your average play center. The describe it as ‘a little world for big imaginations.’ As you head up the stairs you are met with a toddler sized town full of amazing things for
Last Saturday lunchtime my sister sent a message asking if we were free that night or Sunday. Her and her boyfriend hired a car for the weekend and wondered if they could come and stay. Of course, the answer was yes. I said I’d find us something to do on Sunday and we decided on Banham Zoo. John and I don’t drive so getting places like this is normally impossible for us. Banham Zoo is about an hour away from where we live so the drive there wasn’t too bad at all. Erin isn’t really used to being in a car
