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.
This plus that equals…. A Weekend Off
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 joys of a weekend off.
Not a weekend off work, although that happened as well. No, the heady joys of a weekend off parenting.
This summer I had promised L a trip on a train. I hadn’t given it much thought, I just knew it would be something he would enjoy. So when Greater Anglia launched their #RailAdventure campaign and wanted to know if we would like to take part I leapt at the chance.
We are lucky enough to be situated close to two rail stations, Diss and Wymondham. In fact we spend quite a bit of time at Wymondham Station thanks to the delightful Station Bistro. A lovely establishment that allows us to enjoy great food whilst watching the trains go by, it one of L’s and mine favourite spots.
How time flies. This time two weeks ago I was getting ready for my sisters hen party and in another two weeks she will be getting married. It has come round in the blink of an eye.
Thanks to the hard work of a lot of people the hen party was brilliant and as I never do this kind of thing I thought I would tell you all about it.
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.
After a long weekend hen party-ing I am knackered but a bit of a break has been helpful and whilst I may be very busy now I do at least feel a bit more motivated.
I’m hoping that things will calm down a bit and I can centre myself once again and fall back into a good routine.
Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:
This plus that equals…. things I’m excited about right now
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. After a few weeks of feeling a bit low I’ve decided to focus on things I’m excited about right now.
It’s nice to have things to look forward to and there is some seriously cool stuff coming up.

Sorry this is a day late. Husb and I had a few days away and instead of writing this when I got home last night. I collapsed into a tired heap on the sofa with half a bottle of wine. Whoops.
I start my new job tomorrow. I have a lump in my chest. A knot of tension. I’m far from calm at this precise moment. Am I making the right decision, how much will impact our lives, things work so nicely with me at home.
All I know is we need some money and there’s no point me striving to stay at home if I don’t have a home to stay in. I hope this is just a temporary bump in the road. Only time will tell though. Wish me luck for tomorrow.
Oh and as I’m typing this I get a phone call from the garage, which has my car for the fourth time over recent weeks, to be told that another car has rolled into it. I really could cry right now. When it rains it pours.
So as ever I’m focusing on the positives. Here are my 10 moments from the past 7 days, enjoy them whilst I rock slowly in a corner; Continue reading Feeling Calm #36
This plus that equals…. My Favourite Norfolk Walks
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is a list of my favourite walks in Norfolk. We’re off to Lincoln for a long weekend, when husb asked what I wanted to do, I literally had no clue other than to get out for some good, long, at a decent pace, walks. It can be hard to do with a toddler sometimes.
So I’d been looking for some walking inspiration in and around Lincoln and it got me thinking of my favourite places to walk at home in sunny Norfolk, especially now we have L.
This year to celebrate their 90th anniversary Herbert Woods added the new Starlight 24 Picnic Boats to their day hire fleet.
It is the first new design of the original Picnic Boat designed by Herbert Woods in 60 years. So of course we felt it only right that we tested it out.
We picked a great day for it, the sun was shining, there was a nice breeze and we were ready for a fun day out on the water.
The original plan had been to head out under Potter Heigham Bridge and go towards Horsey, exploring the broads that end of the county. But the tide was too high for us to actually get the boat under the bridge though, so instead we put Neatishead in our sights. Continue reading Fun on the Broads with Herbert Woods
Since having L we’ve enjoyed a lot of family holidays and making new memories with him. We haven’t shied away from anything with him, boats, tents, caravans, distance. It’s all been worthwhile for the new experiences and fantastic holiday memories.
What’s struck me most is the odd similarities and weird little things that have happened. Continue reading Holiday Memories
