A Walk Along The North Walsham and Dilham Canal

We have lived in this town for around 7 years now and we really don’t know much about our local area. Being non-drivers means that we’re a  bit stuck with where we can go without the help of public transport. However, being at home for the last 9 weeks has meant that we needed to explore a bit more so that we didn’t go stir crazy. With the help of some Facebook groups, we realised that there are two sets of woods within walking distance and also a canal. It’s quite bad really that we’ve lived here for this long

Discovering Somewhere New

Since the beginning of lock down we haven’t really been making the most of being able to have daily exercise. We don’t drive and live in quite a small town so there hasn’t really been anywhere for us to go. I have to admit that I’ve been quite jealous seeing people on Instagram having walks in fields, woods and even super quiet walks along the beach. The most we have done is have 1 family walk with Erin and her bike. I think we have been going a bit stir crazy though and we were really in need of really

10 Places To Visit In Norfolk With Kids

I think we’re pretty lucky that we have so many different things to do in Norfolk. It’s quite a large county to live in and depending on which area you live in, you can find some amazing places to visit or go to for days out. With February half term just around the corner I thought I would share some of the great places you could visit in Norfolk. Cromer Cromer is really just down the road from where we live (15 minutes by train) and we always love a day out there. Not only is there a great beach and

The Adventures We Had In 2019

AD | Contains some gifted trips and days out I love nothing more than a day out, weekend away or a holiday. Although money has been tight for the past few years I have tried to make sure that we budget and save to ensure that Erin gets these experiences. I never did nearly as much when I was a child and I want Erin to have adventures and to discover new places. We were very lucky to have some great experiences in 2019. January Like a lot of people we had a very quiet January. With Christmas and Erin’s

My First Panto: Rapunzel At The Garage, Norwich

We received an invitation to the press preview of this show.  I’ll be completely honest, before this summer I didn’t really know much about The Garage which is in the city centre of Norwich. Then, last summer I saw one of their shows advertised, My First Play: A Midsummer Night’s Nap and we were invited to go and see it. Erin absolutely loved the show and getting to take part was a big deal for her. A couple of weeks ago we were invited back to watch the press preview of My First Panto: Rapunzel. When we arrived Erin was

Laser Tag At Labyrinth Norwich

Living in a small-ish town and not being able to drive means our weekends are generally spent doing the same thing each week and it can get quite boring. Luckily though, we are on the train line to Norwich and it’s only a 30 minute journey so we can get there pretty quickly and easily. Somewhere I had seen advertised on Facebook was Labyrinth, which is a play cafe and somewhere to play laser tag (which is very similar to playing with a slug gun at home). I saw a toddler session on a Saturday for only £7.50 per family and I

A Morning Out At Priory Maze And Gardens

This year I think we have been very lucky to have some wonderful days out, over summer especially, but we’re always looking for someone new. On a recent morning out with my sister and brother in law we chose the Priory Maze And Gardens in Beeston Regis, Norfolk to visit. It’s somewhere I’d sort of had in mind for a while but never got round to going. Priory Maze And Gardens is in the middle of Sheringham and West Runton. On the day of our visit my brother in law drove and there was plenty of parking available. As non-drivers, we

48 Hours In Cambridge

When Erin was maybe just over a year old we went on a last minute trip to Cambridge. We didn’t have the largest amount of time but we had a great visit and we’d said we would love to go back when Erin was a bit older. Now that Erin is nearly 4 we thought we would be in a better position to explore the city a bit more and to do more while we were there. This time, we managed to book our trip for John’s birthday so it was a great time to go away. Monday We have
