Testing The New Children’s Menu At Turtle Bay

Disclaimer: We received a complimentary meal for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own.  It’s been quite a while since we managed to get into Norwich for a family day out. John works a lot of Saturdays and Sunday is his swimming day with Erin so that doesn’t leave us with a whole lot of time. We were determined to get out before Christmas though so last Friday we headed into the city to watch a screening of Zog and some lunch. Somewhere we hadn’t been to for a while is Turtle Bay and they now have a new

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

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. Erin doesn’t know it yet but we are going to see the show on 18th September at Norwich Theatre Royal.

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

Trying The New Spring Menu At Middleton’s Steakhouse And Grill, Norwich

Since I moved to North Norfolk back in 2013 I have heard nothing but great things about Middleton’s Steakhouse & Grill in Norwich. There are restaurants in other locations too so make sure you check the website for details. For some reason though we had never gotten around to eating there but when I found out they had a brand new spring menu, I was determined to give it a try. This past Bank Holiday we were lucky enough to have family visiting so we thought it would be a great idea to have a day out in Norwich and finally

Preparing A Toddler For Their First Flight

In a few days John, Erin and I will be heading off to Majorca on our first family holiday abroad. I have flown plenty of times before and so has John but this is something completely new for Erin and she has no idea what to expect. Although we are only going on a 2.5 hour flight Erin might get worried or scared as soon as she sees the plane. At the moment she’s quite excited but you can never really be sure how a toddler will react to something. I thought it would be a good idea to put

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
