My Night at McDonald’s

I’ve never been one to shy away from taking L to McDonald’s. If we’re travelling it’s perfect and he loves it as a special treat. There’s one everywhere you go, you know what to expect and it’s always great value. I was really excited to be invited along to a blogger event at the McDonalds by Norwich Airport.

To My Son on Your Fourth Birthday

Oh my word tomorrow is your birthday and you will be four years old and I literally don’t know where the time has gone. It honestly seems like 5 minutes ago I was writing something very similar for your third birthday and trying to cling to you being a toddler.

Sandringham setting for Butterfly Walk fundraiser

The Benjamin Foundation’s annual Butterfly Walk on Sunday 25th June

East Anglian charity, The Benjamin Foundation, will hold its fourth annual Butterfly Walk at Sandringham Country Park on Sunday 25th June.

The Walk will follow one of Sandringham’s trails, and is around three miles long, meandering through the Country Park’s historic woodland. Quiz questions are posted along the route, providing added fun for adults and children, with prizes for the best set of answers in each age group up for grabs at the end of the Walk. Within the Country Park there are plenty of perfect picnic spots, a large children’s play area, restaurant, gift shop and a farmers’ market, so a lovely day out for the whole family.

Tasteful Hen Party Fun with Team Hen

Following on from my article yesterday about all the fun we had at my sister’s hen party I wanted to spend a bit more time telling you about the wonderful hen party goodies we got from Team Hen.

Organising a hen party is hard work, especially when there are 19 guests, the bride is your sister and your mum will be there. So many standard hen party gifts and tokens are just ridiculously tacky and flashy or adorned with willy’s.
