An End Of Summer Getaway To Norwich

At the beginning of last week, just before the summer holidays ended we managed to get away for a couple of days to Norwich. This is really only down the road for us, being a 30 minute train journey away. However, we never seem to get enough time there and our day trips are always really rushed. Travelodge had a great deal at some point during lockdown where they offered hotel stays with 2 nights for the price of 1. We ended up booking two separate trips to Norwich (the other for October half term) for less than £100 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 think this has probably been down to the jobs I’ve had in the past and always being so busy from September to Christmas. With that in mind, I’ve been looking recently

Things To Do In Liverpool As A Family

Somewhere we have heard so many good things about, and it is on a direct train line from Norwich is Liverpool. Of course, the 5 hour train journey might be interesting with a 2 year old so we would definitely need to stay a couple of days to make it worthwhile. If we were to visit Liverpool and stay for a few days we would need plenty of family friendly

Planning Our Haven Holiday

In early December John won an award at work, which I was super proud of him for. With his award he also won £100 of vouchers which we could have used in loads of different places. We could have been sensible and bought the new iron that we need, or a new lawnmower but instead we did something even better… we booked a holiday. Mostly, the vouchers could be used in shops but somewhere else that accepted them was Haven. We already had a holiday to Majorca booked for April and Center Parcs in October but I have wanted to go
