Our Holiday in the Sun

We go on holiday a lot with the kid, maybe two or three family breaks a year. We’ll camp, boat, caravan, we really don’t care but one thing they have all had in common is they have been self catering in the UK. They have also been work, reviews for this blog. We haven’t had a family holiday in the sun at all since L was born and technically I haven’t had a holiday at all.

This plus that equals…. train days

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 days out on the train. Train days as L calls them.

Sea Life Centre Gt Yarmouth

We have visited the Sea Life Centre at Gt Yarmouth relatively regularly since L was born, maybe once a year or so. We can make it part of a larger day out at the seaside with ease and L does like to look at some fish.

East Anglian Game and Country Fair

L loves JCBs, loves them. We’ve worked as Brand Ambassadors for JCB Kids in the past and visited Diggerland. This kid is OBSESSED. So when I discovered that the world-famous Dancing Digger team from JCB would be visiting the East Anglian Game and Country Fair just outside of Thetford I booked tickets for me and the kid.

A Family Break on the Broads with Herbert Woods

I don’t think I have ever hidden the fact I love living in Norfolk. I love the quiet rural lifestyle and how lucky we are to have a stunning coastline, plenty of castles and attractions and the Norfolk Broads all on my doorstep.

We have spent a lot of time on the Broads over the years and I can’t think of a time since we’ve had L that we haven’t got a boat out in one form or another.  Continue reading A Family Break on the Broads with Herbert Woods

Our Day at The Spring Fling 2018

A few weeks ago I was wasting time on Facebook, as you do, when I saw an advert for The Spring Fling. It immediately appealed to me as it involved tractors, the emergency services and animals, all of L’s favourite things. When I looked into it a bit further I saw the tickets were only £9.50 each and included lunch. I was sold.

Banham Zoo

For four years now we have had annual passes to Banham Zoo and though I’ve mentioned it several times, not once have I actually written about it! Well it’s time I fixed that.

Kentwell Hall

After a lovely morning flying owls at Lavenham Falconry, we wanted to make the most of our child free day. At the recommendation of the guys at the falconry centre we headed to Kentwell Hall. We had never visited before and it sounded amazing. We were not let down and I only wish we had taken L with us as he would have loved it, it is so child friendly!Kentwell Hall

City of Norwich Aviation Museum

One of our favourite day trips is The City of Norwich Aviation Museum.

It is a particular favourite of L and his Daddy, to the point they got themselves an annual pass (£10 per adult or £20 for a family pass). On occasion, however, it is permitted for me to go with them!Norwich Aviation Museum
