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
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
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
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
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.
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
