Feeling Calm #64

For my birthday last year I received a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

It’s sunny, it’s hot. I’m on holiday next week. Life is good. But blimey being on holiday next week means I’m beyond busy this week. I’m almost prepared, almost. I mean nothing is packed nor planned. But how long does that take?!

Fun and Healthy Snacking with Googly Fruit Organic

L is obsessed with snacks. He could have literally just finished a three course meal and he would be asking for a snack. This means I need a variety of healthy and delicious snacks on hand. So when a jam packed full box of Googly Fruit Organic arrived on the doorstep I was very happy.

Vertigo Adventures

Last Sunday husb and I headed off to Welwyn Garden City for a day of challenges with Vertigo Adventures. An amazing high ropes centre in Stanborough Park.

Now I’m not a fan of heights, I have no co-ordination and was a very long way out of my comfort zone. It was still one of the highlights of my week though. Husb on the other hand was in his element.

A New Menu at Turtle Bay

I love eating at Turtle Bay in Norwich. I’ve got a soft spot for it having been there for the launch and visiting several times since. So I couldn’t wait to try out the new menu.

I was really happy to see some more vegetarian options and some new cocktails, as well as vegan dishes and gluten free dishes, not forgetting some new meaty dishes including more burgers.
