My First Panto: Rapunzel At The Garage, Norwich

We received an invitation to the press preview of this show.  I’ll be completely honest, before this summer I didn’t really know much about The Garage which is in the city centre of Norwich. Then, last summer I saw one of their shows advertised, My First Play: A Midsummer Night’s Nap and we were invited to go and see it. Erin absolutely loved the show and getting to take part was a big deal for her. A couple of weeks ago we were invited back to watch the press preview of My First Panto: Rapunzel. When we arrived Erin was

Laser Tag At Labyrinth Norwich

Living in a small-ish town and not being able to drive means our weekends are generally spent doing the same thing each week and it can get quite boring. Luckily though, we are on the train line to Norwich and it’s only a 30 minute journey so we can get there pretty quickly and easily. Somewhere I had seen advertised on Facebook was Labyrinth, which is a play cafe and somewhere to play laser tag. I saw a toddler session on a Saturday for only £7.50 per family and I just had to book. Labyrinth is only a 5 minute

A Morning Out At Priory Maze And Gardens

This year I think we have been very lucky to have some wonderful days out, over summer especially, but we’re always looking for someone new. On a recent morning out with my sister and brother in law we chose the Priory Maze And Gardens in Beeston Regis, Norfolk to visit. It’s somewhere I’d sort of had in mind for a while but never got round to going. Priory Maze And Gardens is in the middle of Sheringham and West Runton. On the day of our visit my brother in law drove and there was plenty of parking available. As non-drivers, we

Family Fun At Bowling House, Norwich

AD | Gifted Something you may not know about me is that before I had Erin I was the manager of a leisure facility that included a bowling alley. However, since leaving I have only been bowling once that was a couple of years ago. Erin was only about 1 at the time so she didn’t really get to join in but we decided that it was time to take her for a real game of her own. For this, we chose to go to Bowling House in Norwich. As a non-driving family we always make sure that we choose

Summer At Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

AD | Gifted tickets Somewhere I have always heard such great things about for a day out in Norfolk is Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure. We first visited with Erin during February half term earlier this year but we had to cut our trip short as my friend’s son wasn’t very well. Erin has been asking to go back ever since but as a non-driving family it’s pretty hard to get to. This year, Roarr! have done something really fantastic and put on a free bus, the DinoBus, from Norwich during the summer holidays. For us as a family, this was a pretty

A Family Day At Holt Country Park

Living in Norfolk we are really spoiled with a huge list of places that we could visit for a day out. However, as we don’t drive a lot of the places are extremely hard for us to get to. Luckily, we go for days out with my sister and her fiance around once a month so we always tend to pick somewhere that we couldn’t get to otherwise. This time our visit was to Holt Country Park, which is about a 30 minute drive away from where we live. At the entrance to Holt Country Park there is plenty of

Theatre Review: My First Play: A Midsummer Night’s Nap

AD | Press tickets Ever since I first took Erin to see a show at the theatre a couple of years ago she has been so excited about going back. We’ve been to see a few shows with characters from cartoons that she likes but we had never been to see a play. I guess I thought Erin was too young for a play but we recently went to see A Midsummer Night’s Nap at The Garage in Norwich. A Midsummer Night’s Nap is part of the ‘My First’ series and it’s a retelling of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Discover Vikings At Norwich Castle This Summer

AD | Press event Living in North Norfolk nearer to the coast we sometimes forget how much there is to do in Norwich. On Monday we invited to a press event at Norwich Castle to discover their summer holiday activity for 2019, ‘The Legend Returns’. Our day started off with a really lovely breakfast of warm chocolate croissants and drinks while getting to chat to other bloggers that were also attending the event. We took this opportunity to grab a table with Chloe from Just The Three Of Us and her lovely children Mia and Theo. We’d already met before
