Our First Visit To The Norwich Children’s Library

We don’t go into Norwich nearly as much as I would like and we definitely haven’t made the most of everything there is to do there. On a recent trip while we were reviewing COSMO we had some time to kill beforehand. It was a really wet and miserable day so we needed something to do indoors with Erin. Somewhere we had never been before was the children’s department at the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library. One of the reasons why I wanted to go to the children’s library was because I had seen that it had been refurbished a

Restaurant Review: COSMO Norwich

AD | Complimentary meal provided John and I love eating out but now that we have Erin choosing a restaurant isn’t always so easy. Erin doesn’t really do well with restaurants because she hates to be sat still. Anywhere we go she lasts about 2 minutes on her chair before wanting to explore, dance or generally create a bit of madness. Waiting for the food to arrive can turn into an absolute nightmare and John and I end up more stressed out than anything else. We were recently invited to try COSMO Authentic World Kitchen in Norwich which sounded ideal

Mimi And The Mountain Dragon At Norwich Playhouse

AD – We received complimentary tickets to this show. All opinions are our own.  Last year I took Erin to the theatre for the first time and I was surprised at how much she loved it. Since then I’ve been looking to take her back to see something else and as she loved Zog so much, I thought Mimi and the Mountain Dragon would be a great choice. On the day of the show I wasn’t feeling too good and luckily, John had an unexpected day off work so he got to take Erin instead of me. I wasn’t really

When Days Out Become A Disaster

I think it was just after Christmas when I saw that a cinema in Norwich would be showing The Gruffalo on their child friendly morning in February. Having been to see Zog at the same cinema before Christmas I thought Erin would love it, especially as we’d be watching/ reading other Julia Donaldson stories. We’d had the date written on the board for weeks and I’d been getting Erin excited about us having a day out together as we haven’t had one for ages. The weekend before our cinema trip Erin hadn’t been herself and we had nights where she

Testing The New Children’s Menu At Turtle Bay

Disclaimer: We received a complimentary meal for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own.  It’s been quite a while since we managed to get into Norwich for a family day out. John works a lot of Saturdays and Sunday is his swimming day with Erin so that doesn’t leave us with a whole lot of time. We were determined to get out before Christmas though so last Friday we headed into the city to watch a screening of Zog and some lunch. Somewhere we hadn’t been to for a while is Turtle Bay and they now have a new

Aladdin At Norwich Theatre Royal

AD – We received complimentary tickets for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own.  I honestly couldn’t tell you the last time I went to see a panto over Christmas. We used to go every single year as a family when I was growing up and I loved the tradition. Since moving away from home and generally just being busy with life I haven’t had to chance to go again but this year I was invited by Norwich Theatre Royal to watch this year’s panto Aladdin! Unfortunately, when I see the casts of some pantos sometimes I have

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

Improving Digital Confidence At A Post Office Broadband Digital Drop-In

As a blogger you would think that I know a fair bit about the digital world and while that might be true in some respects, there is still so much I don’t know. Considering my job means being on the internet a lot of the time, I should probably know a bit more about what I can do! Yesterday I went to Norwich to attend a Digital Drop In run by Post Office Broadband and Google! As part of a pilot scheme, which Post Office Broadband are hoping to expand, there have been 5 drop in sessions around the country
