A Wild Day Out At BeWILDerwood

When I moved to Norfolk just over 5 years ago now I remember hearing so many great things about BeWILDerwood. Someone I worked with in my previous job also worked at BeWILDerwood as a story teller and she had so many great things to say.  At the time, I had no reason to visit but since Erin turned 2 last January we have been trying to find the right time to go. Towards the end of October half term we went for a family day out, along with Erin’s Auntie and Uncle, for The Glorious Glowing Lantern Parade, which ran until

Afternoon Tea And Pamper Treat For Two With Red Letter Days

Being someone who is self-employed and works from home means having very little ‘me’ time. Don’t get me wrong, I have days where Erin is at nursery and John is at work so I have the house to myself but then I have work and cleaning to do. I have my nails done for special occasions only like going on holiday and I think I’ve had my hair done 2-3 times since Erin was born nearly 3 years ago. So, when Red Letter Days got in touch to see if I would like to test out one of their experiences,

Peppa Pig’s Adventure At Norwich Theatre Royal

The first (and only) time I have taken Erin to the theatre was around a year ago and we saw Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom. Being only 1 then, a lot has changed now that Erin is 2 and I had no idea what to expect when I planned to take her to see Peppa Pig’s Adventure at Norwich Theatre Royal. Erin had been asking all day when she would get to see Peppa Pig so as soon as we got to the theatre she was super excited and just wanted to explore. I think she’d have been really happy

Exploring Sheringham Park, Norfolk

I can’t quite believe it but I have now lived in Norfolk for just over 5 years. From my very first visit about 7 years ago I was blown away by just how beautiful Norfolk is and since then, I have had a list a mile long of places I wanted to visit. Sheringham Park (NT) has been on that list for a long time and until last Saturday, I haven’t been able to visit. Sheringham Park isn’t actually that far from where we live, about a 30 minute drive away, but seeing as we don’t drive, it’s not quite

Win A Family Ticket To Peppa Pig’s Adventure In Norwich

One of Erin’s absolute favourite shows to watch is Peppa Pig and she is currently touring with Peppa Pig’s Adventure in theatre around the UK.

Free Activities For Children On A Haven Holiday

Earlier this year we went on our first ever Haven holiday to Caister-on-Sea in Norfolk. Something we were interested in was the different activities suitable for Erin and more importantly, the free activities. We got a great deal on our break and we didn’t want to spend too much money while we were there. As Erin hadn’t ever done anything like this on holiday before we didn’t want to pay for lots of activities she didn’t enjoy. So, I thought I’d share some of the free activities for children on a Haven holiday (please check they’re available at the site

Our Greater Anglia Rail Adventure To London

As a family we don’t always get to spend the most time together. John works 6 days a week at least 2 weeks of the month and Erin is often asleep even before he gets home. Life tends to get in the way a lot of the time but Greater Anglia gave us the opportunity to have a fun packed day out together as part of their #railadventure campaign. When it came time to decide where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do it took me a while. Greater Anglia cover quite a large area so there was

A Day Trip To Redwings Horse Sanctuary

This Father’s Day just gone we didn’t really have any plans but my sister and her fiance wanted to go and do something so we decided on the Redwings Horse Sanctuary in Aylsham. None of us had ever been before but we’d had it on a list of things to do close by for a while now and none of us wanted to go too far. Redwings is only a 15-20 minute drive away for us so relatively easy to get to. The first thing to mention is that entry to Redwings Horse Sanctuary is free and that it is open
