This Plus That Equals…. Our Favourite Norfolk Day Trips

This plus that equals…. our favourite Norfolk day trips

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about our favourite Norfolk day trips (sometimes spilling into Suffolk). Those trips we make again and again.

In Norfolk we’re lucky to be surrounded by stunning coast, fab tourist attractions and activities that are fab whatever the weather. We have a few trusty fall backs though, so here they are.

Feeling Calm #58

For my birthday last year I was given 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. 

More amazing weather, bank holidays on the horizon and a clean house. It should all be good but a change at work has left me feeling uneasy and an ever growing pile of things to blog about is adding to my stress levels.

Regardless here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

Feeling Calm #57

For my birthday last year I was given 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. 

Hasn’t the weather been amazing?! We’ve been enjoying a lot of outdoors time and doesn’t it make a difference. Garden play is always an easy option for me, but when you don’t even have to worry about warmth and can literally just open the door and shove the child outside it’s even better.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

This Plus That Equals…. Little Memories

This plus that equals…. little memories

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about the little every day things that are actually really special and I want to remember.

Not big things, nothing special or momentous. Just the everyday things, so little, so commonplace, even mundane. The things that actually make us, us. The things I don’t want to forget.

Feeling Calm #56

For my birthday last year I was given 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. 

These last 7 days have been engulfed with illness. I’m still not at my finest but everyone else seems back to normal. Thanks to a vile sickness bug L bought home from Nursery I don’t think I’ve had a full night sleep since last Wednesday!

There aren’t many pictures from these last few days, and nothing much exciting has happened but regardless here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

Fun With Magic Tracks

You may have seen the TV adverts for Magic Tracks, it’s a fun and easy track system for race cars. It bends,is flexible, glows and is super easy and fun to use. L got sent the starter set and has been putting it through its paces.

Cat Playing With L’s New Toy

Magic Tracks is a 2016 top ten toy success story from the US and it has just launched in the UK. The track itself comes in 4 colours, is chunky and strong whilst still remaining completely flexible. The track clips together almost like puzzle pieces and just snaps apart.
L hasn’t quite mastered putting it together by himself yet, but has really grasped the taking it apart, moving it around and creates amazing tracks all by himself. I am often only needed to clip the last two bits together.

L was really excited with his new Magic Tracks Set

Feeling Calm #55

For my birthday last year I was given 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. 

This has been the busiest week ever. To be honest I’m glad to see the back of it. Poor L didn’t stop all last week and so this week he is a horror. Husb and I are tired and bickering. Time for some normality to return I think.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:
