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
Today I’m really happy to have Kelly-Anne from Mimi Rose & Me guest posting. Living in Middle of Nowhere, Norfolk I don’t often to get to meet other local bloggers so it’s great to have a fellow Norfolk blogger here today! Hi, my name is Kelly-Anne, I’m a 28 year old mother to one, my cheeky little lady Amelia. I am also a wife to my lovely Tony and we have set up our forever home in the beautiful countryside of Norfolk. I first launched Mimi Rose & Me as a way to keep my brain from turning to complete mush whilst on maternity
When I lived in Nottingham while I was at university one of my favourite places to eat was a buffet restaurant called Peachy Keens. It was an all you can eat ‘everything’ kind of place and since moving away, I’ve missed it. I was so excited when I found out a Cosmo Authentic World Kitchen was opening in Norwich as it’s a very similar thing. Me, John and Erin all headed into Norwich for the day for my birthday last month and headed to Cosmo for when it opened at midday. It was a Sunday and I don’t think I
Living in The Middle of Nowhere, Norfolk means not really knowing many local bloggers and especially not other parent bloggers. When Amy from Social Network Solutions (SNS) invited me to a cosy local event I was so excited. I actually nearly didn’t go though because I don’t drive and I had no idea where the event was. I’m glad I put on my big girl pants and figured it out though! The event was held at Dotty Pottery which is in Hellesdon, Norwich. It’s a bit out of the city center which is why I had to figure out the
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
