Fantastic Father’s Day Gifts from intu Chapelfield

Still need to get your Dad a gift for Sunday. I’m here to prove that it’s easy. On Monday L and I headed into Norwich and went to intu Chapelfield, we walked away with bags full of great gifts.

We had been set a challenge. Prove that you can get great gifts for less than £50.00. No socks allowed. Have fun. We could get one big gift, or lots of little ones, that was up to us. We had a £50 intu voucher to spend, which can be used at all the shops inside intu Chapelfield apart from the food and drink outlets.

Aquabeads Review

We recently received an Aquabeads New Beginners Studio. I was really looking forward to this, it struck me as an easier version of the beads I used to have to get my mum to iron for me when I was a kid. I didn’t know how L would get on with them though.  Continue reading Aquabeads Review
