Our Tour of JCB World HQ

One of the many things I did with L this year was visit the East Anglian Game and Country Fair. We had a fabulous time and watched the famous JCB Dancing Diggers perform. What I didn’t realise is that just by purchasing tickets I had been entered into a competition and I only went and won it! A tour of the JCB Worldwide Headquarters.

Bowling House Norwich

Last weekend we took L to Bowling House in Norwich for a little treat. It may or may not have escaped your attention but L started school in September. I have not been handling it well!

Our Day at Holywell Bay Fun Park & Goodbye

Well this has review has been a while coming, mainly because I just didn’t know where to start. During our stay at Trevornick we spent a whole day at Holywell Bay Fun Park which was right next door. Since we visited they have made the decision to close the park, which is sad, but as we spent a whole day there I still thought I’d share it with you.
