Restaurant Review: COSMO Norwich

AD | Complimentary meal provided John and I love eating out but now that we have Erin choosing a restaurant isn’t always so easy. Erin doesn’t really do well with restaurants because she hates to be sat still. Anywhere we go she lasts about 2 minutes on her chair before wanting to explore, dance or generally create a bit of madness. Waiting for the food to arrive can turn into an absolute nightmare and John and I end up more stressed out than anything else. We were recently invited to try COSMO Authentic World Kitchen in Norwich which sounded ideal

February Half Term At Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

AD – We received complimentary entry to Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure. All opinions are our own.  Back when I moved to Norfolk in 2013 and started working at a soft play centre I heard so many things about Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure. At the time we didn’t have any children so it’s taken some time to getting around to visit. However, now that Erin is 3 and this week has been her first half term from nursery, it seemed like a great time to go and we planned to make a day of it with friends. We arrived at just before 9:30 so

Mimi And The Mountain Dragon At Norwich Playhouse

AD – We received complimentary tickets to this show. All opinions are our own.  Last year I took Erin to the theatre for the first time and I was surprised at how much she loved it. Since then I’ve been looking to take her back to see something else and as she loved Zog so much, I thought Mimi and the Mountain Dragon would be a great choice. On the day of the show I wasn’t feeling too good and luckily, John had an unexpected day off work so he got to take Erin instead of me. I wasn’t really

Aladdin At Norwich Theatre Royal

AD – We received complimentary tickets for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own.  I honestly couldn’t tell you the last time I went to see a panto over Christmas. We used to go every single year as a family when I was growing up and I loved the tradition. Since moving away from home and generally just being busy with life I haven’t had to chance to go again but this year I was invited by Norwich Theatre Royal to watch this year’s panto Aladdin! Unfortunately, when I see the casts of some pantos sometimes I have

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

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

Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom Live on Stage Review

We have a bit of a morning routine going with Erin at the minute. She gets up and has her breakfast and then watches Milkshake! for a bit before we either go out in the garden, play or do other things for the rest of the day. One of her absolute favourites to watch is Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom. When we had the opportunity to go and see Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom Live on Stage I jumped at the chance.   Erin is now 17 months old and this was going to be her first experience at the theatre.
