You may remember a couple of weeks ago I shared that intu Chapelfield would be hosting some rather large bugs in the centre for a fun and interactive tour. Well we went and enjoyed a sneak peak of the tour on the opening morning so I thought I’d share it with you.Continue reading The Big Bug Tour at intu Chapelfield
I think we are lucky to live in one of the most beautiful areas of the country. With fabulous coastline, nature reserves and amazing walking pretty much wherever you turn. This summer I can barely think of a day where we haven’t been out exploring it, but all to often I miss huge chunks of what there is on offer as I’m travelling. Greater Anglia agree, which is why they think you should travel by train, where you will always have the best seat (and view) in the house.Continue reading Room with a View – Greater Anglia Trains
I’m hoping I’m not the only parent to have found that adding Ketchup to seemingly any meal makes it so down far more easily!
I’m fully aware it’s not always the best choice though. I try hard to think about what I’m feeding L and keep it healthy as well as fun but it’s not always that easy.Continue reading Real Good Ketchup
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.Continue reading Fun in London with Greater Anglia
If you are like me then you’ll want to be getting outdoors whatever the weather. However, this time of year, when it’s cold, wet and windy it can be hard to find the enthusiasm for it. Harder still to get the rest of the family on board. That’s one of the many reasons we love Treasure Trails, how better to persuade a five year old out of the warm and into the cold than becoming super spies for the day, spies with a mission to solve.Continue reading Treasure Trails – Wymondham
We love Merrivale Model Village in Great Yarmouth and L and I try to visit at least once a year, so incase you were looking for a good day out in Norfolk I thought I’d share this little gem with you.
Situated along the parade in Great Yarmouth Merrivale Model Village is easy to find and there is plenty of parking in Yarmouth so that’s not an issue.Continue reading Merrivale model Village
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.
Anyone who has read my blog recently will know that we are of on our first foreign holiday in 9 years. This means it will be the first time L has been on a plane, so I’m trying to be really organised to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. Part of that preparation is L’s new Trunki.
Oh I have been wanting to write this for so long but life has very much got in the way. Last year for L’s birthday we spent the weekend at Chessington World of Adventures. It was amazing. AMAZING.
I’m not really sure why we ended up going to Chessington for his birthday, I’d just been browsing the internet one night and saw that there was a great offer for a hotel stay and two days park entry for around £140 and that we could go for his actual birthday.
The one thing that I have always felt has been missing from our garden is a water feature. But with L I have to be careful over what I pick. It has to be a child friendly water feature. I have to have confidence it that. Of course I turned to Primrose, with such a wide range of stock they have never let me down.
We went for the Perth Square 4 Tier Solar Water Feature and Herb Planter by Solaray. At 42 x 39 cm it was big enough to make a statement in the garden but as it is currently on offer at £79.99 doesn’t break the bank.
