Shrek’s Adventure! London – Review

Over the Easter Holidays we had a lovely mini break in London. It was fab to have a really good explore and a lovely way for me to relax after all the goings on at home! We only had one real plan for our break and that was a trip to Shrek’s Adventure.

Shrek's Adventure! London

We had visited Shrek once before over Christmas and had a wonderful time. On one hand I was very excited to be returning, on the other I was worried that as we had visited once and it was no longer a surprise, that it might not be as good a second time round.

Fun in London with Greater Anglia

As you all know the Easter break was a bit of a mixed bag for me, swapping form fun days out with the kid to funerals. What kept me going was the knowledge that we had a mini break in London booked, a stress free break with no driving and lots of fun.

We love Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure, it always makes for a fabulous day out. I write about all the reasons we love it recently, you check that out here. As we’re currently in the middle of the Easter break it was on our list of places to visit, especially as they have added loads of extra egg-cellent activities for the holidays.

Cheese Making at Fielding Cottage

Last Sunday I was lucky enough to experience a whistlestop cheese making tour at Fielding Cottage as part of a press day. I made my own cheese, got to see how they make their award winning cheeses, eat a lot of it (I was not complaining) and have a look at the gorgeous holiday cottages.

Our First Experience of Barracudas Day Activity Camp – Norwich

L spent the first two days of his Easter Break at Barracudas Day Activity Camp in Norwich with his best mate. I was so happy to get to work with them this year, and despite being super organised about it, I would be lying if I said I had no concerns. Well now he has been and I am delighted, truly delighted. So I thought I’d share a little bit about our experience.

Barracudas First Time Checklist

It’s not long until L and his friend get to check out the fun packed activities on offer at Barracudas Day Activity Camps. I’m so happy to be sending him and couldn’t be more excited to get to work with such a fun loving, child focused company.

Feeling Calm

We’ve never been before so I am obviously a bit nervous. What to bring, what to do, what to expect? It’s all new to me. So I’ve created a checklist of things to do before we go and I thought other parents in the same boat may find it useful.

Barracudas Activity Day Camps

So we’re half way through the February Half Term and if you are anything like me managing a week off work is doable but the thought of the two week Easter Break and the Summer holidays on top of a job is worrisome to say the least.

This year I’m working as a Brand Ambassador for Barracudas and I couldn’t be happier to share it with you all.

Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park

Over the weekend we headed to Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park for some family fun. It’s nice and close to us and we try to visit at least once a year, so on a cold and blustery Saturday, after two days cooped up n the house feeling unwell, it was the perfect destination.

Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

When it comes to days out with the kids in Norfolk Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park is a classic, it is jam packed full of things to do for all ages and all weathers. It’s also changing and growing which is lovely to see. I used to visit as a child when we stayed with family in Norfolk over our Summer Holidays and it is lovely to take L now and see some of the same dinosaurs I used to love whilst enjoying all the lovely new facilities. It will always have a soft spot in my heart and I feel I need to disclose that more than the fact we were gifted our tickets at the weekend!
