On our most recent trip to Center Parcs Erin was finally old enough to be able to do some of the great activities that are on offer. Due to a broken elbow that had just had a cast off we wanted to book something but nothing too boisterous. Cupcake Decorating sounded great, especially as baking was something that Erin had been doing a lot with her Grandma. This activity cost around £12 and lasted for 45 minutes, aimed at children between 3 and 7. Our class only had 2 children participating and was run by Elleigh. Each child gets 4
A couple of years ago I never thought I would be saying that Center Parcs is one of my favourite places to go on holiday. Honestly, it had never really appealed to me as I would have much preferred a city break. However, when we visited for the first time in 2017 I fell in love immediately and since then have now been back another few times. Our most recent visit was for a midweek break in March 2020. We had only ever been in October before this year so I wanted to write about how our holiday was different.
AD | Press Trip Earlier this month I had a very last minute opportunity to go on a press trip to discover Stoke-on-Trent at Christmastime. Deciding to say yes at around lunchtime and leaving at 7pm the same day was a bit manic, especially as it meant being away when my Mum moved in. The lovely Sarah from Boo Roo and Tigger Too who also lives in Norfolk came to pick me up before making the journey up to Stoke. The drive may have been long but we had such a giggle in the car and before I knew it
AD | Includes gifted experiences At the beginning of December I went for a very rare weekend away to London. I say it was rare because I went with my Mum instead of with John and Erin. I wanted to give her a treat before Christmas and I also had some vouchers for a previous collaboration t use up. Up until now, I haven’t been able to spend much time with Mum on her own because of Erin so I thought a little getaway would be a great idea. Unfortunately, my journey did not start off well. Thanks to horrendous
AD | Press trip On our recent stay at Kelling Heath Holiday Park in North Norfolk we stayed in one of their two bedroom woodland lodges. Kelling Heath do offer other accommodation options such as camping and luxury holiday homes. We instantly liked the look of the lodges though due to us having stayed in something similar elsewhere before. As Erin still has naps while we’re away we wanted somewhere we could spread out and enjoy while we weren’t out exploring. Living area and kitchen Erin likes to spread out when we’re away, especially when we bring toys and things
AD | Press trip This year we are making the effort to make the most of our local area. We recently stayed at Kelling Heath Holiday Park in North Norfolk for four nights in a woodland lodge. I was desperate for some time away from home to relax and also to spend some quality time with John and Erin. Sometimes it’s so easy to pick a city destination but we all needed some time together that wasn’t as busy and rushed. Our stay was from Monday to Friday and as soon as we arrived we felt at peace.

Growing up we weren’t a family with lots of money and we didn’t have flash holidays and fancy clothes. My sister and I went on camping holidays and to Butlins with our Auntie and Uncle and those holidays will be something I always remember. Watching Jurassic Park in the Kinema in the Woods (Woodhall Spa) is one of those things I can look back on now and think wow, what an amazing time we had. Being a child, it was never about where we went or how much the holiday cost but how much fun we had while we were
AD | Gifted Experience John and I love to get away and this year we are trying to explore more of our local area. Somewhere that is only roughly an hour away by train is Ipswich and neither of us had ever been there before. Buyagift got in touch a little while back and offered us some experiences to try. We decided to go for a 2 night family break at a Novotel hotel and luckily, there was one in Ipswich. To book a Buyagift experience with a Novotel hotel you need to email. The booking system is a bit
