A rainy day visit to the circus

Over the weekend we had a family day out planned, with a trip to Cromer to see Circus Cortex. We hadn’t planned on the weather being absolutely terrible though! I was hoping for a lovely sunny day by the sea but instead what we actually got was a lot of rain.

A seaside lunch at the Tides Restaurant in Cromer

AD | Complimentary meal We’re so lucky to have so many wonderful places to eat here in Norfolk. When in Cromer though somewhere most people visit at least once is the Cromer Pier, which also has it’s very own restaurant. The Tides Restaurant has just launched a brand new menu and we visited over the weekend to give it a try.

A day at the beach with family

One thing I have missed so much about being in lockdown is not being able to see family. We don’t actually have a lot of family that we do see so that makes us want to see them even more. Last weekend we were finally able to get to the beach and spend some time with family. We started our day with me, John and Erin heading to Cromer to have a picnic lunch and some ice cream. We found a beautiful garden to sit in which was lovely because it was shaded from the

A Red Letter Days Country House Escape At The Grove, Cromer

AD | Gifted Experience Earlier this year Red Letter Days got in touch to see if we would like to try one of their experiences. Living in Norfolk and not being able to drive usually means that we’re not able to get to a lot of places but having been for afternoon tea and a massage last year, I knew of somewhere we could go. We decided to go with the Country House Escape for 2 at The Grove in Cromer. This particular experience is available Sunday to Friday, throughout the year, excluding summer holidays,

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

A Family Trip To Cromer Beach

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

The Husband Files: Erin’s zoo adventure

Yesterday we took Erin on a zoo adventure. Due to my work schedule I don’t get to go on fun days out with Erin so I was really excited. I was able to take a half day off from work to go and meet Lyndsey, Erin and Lyndsey’s mum at Amazona Zoo in Cromer. It’s only a mile away from where I work so I was able to get there quite quickly! Erin has never been to a zoo before now so we weren’t sure if she would even like it. However, although Amazona Zoo is not the biggest
