After the Christmas break L was excited to get back to school and I was excited to get back a bit of normality, but it wasn’t to be. Well they went back for a day didn’t they! Depending on where you are in the country you’ll have faced differing messages and rules about the return to school but for us, we got one day back in the classrooms and then a mad scramble to arrange childcare and homeschooling. At least I was going to be organised with the Phomemo D30 Label Maker.Continue reading Back to School with Phomemo D30 Label Maker
Teeth are brushed, pyjamas are on and stories read. I’ve just finished tucking a very happy and rather excitable child into bed after our wondrous trip to Norwich Theatre Royal to watch A Circus Carol.
A Circus Carol is part of A Right Royal Christmas running a Norwich Theatre Royal from 16th December to 24th December and it is so good to see the Theatre back up and running, especially with such a great programme.Continue reading A Circus Carol
Last week we headed off to Silverstone to check out their most fabulous Christmas event, LAPland. It was brilliant. The lights, the atmosphere, the set up. Just getting to have be on such an iconic track in our car was amazing. It’s definitely worth a visit.
Last week I left work a few minutes early so I could get home and fill the car with snacks, blankets and a small picnic dinner. I picked L up from school and as soon as we got back home, Christmas jumpers were donned and we got straight into the car and started our journey to Silverstone, we were on the road by 3.30pm which I thought was quite an impressive turnaround!Continue reading Getting Festive at Silverstone with LAPland
When it comes to Christmas there is really only the one plant that comes to mind, the beautiful, deep red, star shaped Poinsettia. I love this classic plant and it’s wonderful leaves and often have them in the house over December. What I didn’t realise is that they actually come in huge variety of colours. This fabulous news means that whatever your chosen festive scheme you can find the Poinsettia for you.
Stars for Europe are the leading group of Poinsettia growers and have some wonderful information on keeping your blooms looking at their best.Continue reading Win a Festive Poinsettia Bouquet

Since our extension was finished last year and we now have a dining table (whoop!) I have developed a love of a seasonal centerpiece. Autumn we had a vase filled with conkers and some candles. Halloween saw the addition of pumpkins, eyeballs and bats. Now I’m starting to think about Christmas with a little help from JR Decal.Continue reading Create a Festive Centrepiece with JR Decal

On Thursday I headed off to my fave place to eat, Turtle Bay, with one of my bestest friends to enjoy a bottomless brunch. Now, it is very rare for me to get a day off from being mum and I do love a good cocktail, so as you can guess I was rather excited for the bottomless-ness of it all!Continue reading Turtle Bay Bottomless Brunch Experience

I am having the best time with L this half term. His school broke up Thursday and between visits to the zoo to meet a baby giraffe and pumpkin trails and patches we’ve been busy everyday.
But there’s one thing we haven’t managed to fit in. A day on the Broads in a picnic boat.Continue reading Boating on The Broads this Half Term
