Highlights Of 2018

As years go, I think 2018 has been pretty amazing for a lot of different reasons. Of course, we had some really bad times too with things around the house breaking and costing us money as well as being broke a lot of the time due to paying Erin’s nursery fees every month. Instead of focusing on things that couldn’t be helped I thought I’d write a post about the great things we’ve done in 2018. Majorca In April we went on our very first family holiday abroad to Port de Pollensa in Majorca. We chose somewhere only a couple

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

A Mummy And Daughter Day In Wroxham

It seems like a strange thing to say but I don’t really get much quality time with Erin. To start with, Erin goes to nursery from 8:45 to 3:30 on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and we also do swimming lessons on a Monday. I know that leaves us 3 days a week but there are still other things going on. John will take Erin swimming or to the park most Sundays so I generally don’t get time with Erin until the afternoon. We also have my sister and brother in law living with us at the moment and Erin would

Staying Connected With The Varta Slim Power Bank 6000

John and I love to get away and this year we have been on a fair few weekends away and a holiday. Neither of us drive though so we always have to use public transport. Not all trains have plug sockets so sometimes we’re stuck for 4+ hours without a way to charge our phones and tablets. When John and I go away together we end up with 2 phones, a camera, tablet and a laptop depending on how long we go for. A power bank is a must have in our family! Varta are a big name in batteries,

A Day Trip To Wroxham Barns, Norfolk

A couple of weeks ago when John was off work we got to have a day out with some good friends which was long overdue. The weather was supposed to be nice so we planned a day to Wroxham Barns which is in Hoveton, Norfolk. Unfortunately, we don’t go here very often because we don’t drive and you can’t walk there from the Hoveton/ Wroxham train station due to there being no footpath. The weather forecast told a big fat lie and the morning was actually pretty miserable. Erin had cried during the whole 15 minute car journey and it

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

A Rainy Day In Cambridge

Yesterday you may have seen our review of Pint Shop in Cambridge. Katy from KatyKicker has been taking part in Greater Anglia’s #lettheadventurebegin campaign, as I did a couple of weeks ago when we took a trip to Lowestoft. We hadn’t seen each other since April at Blog On so I was looking forward to a catch up. Unfortunately, the started off pretty miserably as it was chucking it down with rain and showed no signs of stopping for the rest of the day. Erin was tired and grumpy on both trains we had to take to get to Cambridge

Restaurant Review: Pint Shop, Cambridge

Last week I spent a day in Cambridge with Katy from KatyKicker and her gorgeous daughter Daisy. We both arrived at around 11am and after a couple of hours of travelling on the train I was getting pretty hungry. Thanks to Greater Anglia and their #lettheadventurebegin campaign, we already had somewhere booked for lunch. I couldn’t wait to get to Pint Shop, Cambridge. (There is another location in Oxford) Pint Shop is about a 20 minute walk from Cambridge Station and only a minutes walk from the market and the Grand Arcade Shopping Centre. Being in the centre of Cambridge
