A Day Out at Diggerland

Whilst we were on holiday with Verdant Leisure at their stunning Heather View Leisure Park in County Durham a couple of weeks ago we had some lovely days out. I’m going to try to write about them all over the coming weeks, but today I wanted to share our trip to Diggerland.

Our Verdant Leisure Holiday at Heather View

We are not long back from the most fabulous holiday with Verdant Leisure. We spent Half Term week in County Durham, at the beautiful Heather View Leisure Park which is only a walk away from the town of Stanhope.

After a long journey the play area was a welcome find

It’s a long old drive from Norfolk to County Durham. Long! L handled it like a trooper though. It’s fair to say when we arrived at Heather View he was eager to get out of the car. Our lodge was quite ready for us when arrived so we took the chance to have a little wander around the site.

The Benefits of Travelling

I have never travelled in the sense of going on off on some great adventure all by myself. I’ve gone on holidays. But always with someone. I’ve seen a lot of places and had amazing experiences. The idea of travelling, really travelling, I find quite a stressful thought. But what are the benefits of travelling?

Feeling Calm #66

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. 

Well we are home after an epic holiday. I’m almost caught up on the laundry and I’m thoroughly exhausted! It’s been a busy week but so much fun, with a few calm moments too.

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

Camping in Cromer

New to north Norfolk is Cromer’s only campsite, launching from the last week of July and for the month of August 2017.

For me this is really exciting as I have such fond memories of camping at nearby East Runton as a kid and walking into Cromer for the carnival, so actually being able to camp in Cromer itself will be amazing.

Feeling Calm #45

For my birthday I was given a great new 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 and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

This is an exciting ‘Feeling Calm’ for me, not only is it my first one back after a well earned break, a month long step back from blogging break, but it is also almost an entire year since I started my Calm journey.

Due to the break I have just compiled my top ten moments since my last update, next week will see normal service resume and I’ll be back to weekly catch ups.
