With last year being as rubbish as it was when it came to festive celebrations and general joy, we were super excited to visit the entirely Covid Safe experience offered by Silverstone and the amazing Lap of Lights. It surpassed all expectations and we had the best time. This year with everything looking a bit cheerier and restrictions not being as harsh we were delighted to go back and see what was on offer for 2021.Continue reading Silverstone Lap of Lights 2021

Summer Fun at Pensthorpe
Always one of our favourite days out we headed to Pensthorpe Natural Park at the weekend to check out what they were up to this summer.
We started our trip with a visit to Hootz House indoor play, but upon setting foot inside L decided he’d rather be out in the sunshine. Fair enough! So we spent the first hour playing outdoors and making the most of all the play equipment on offer. It was a lot quieter in the morning than when we walked through later in the day so that’s worth remembering.Continue reading Summer Fun at Pensthorpe
Amazona Zoo & Football Golf
Yesterday we headed to Amazona Zoo in Cromer to spend a fun summer day with friends. As well as seeing all the animals and having lots of fun in the play area we also ventured across the carpark for a round of Football Golf.
It’s safe to say the kids had a blast. Whilst at the zoo they spent most of their time on the play area. With the one a system that is currently in place the free flow nature of the zoo has been lost and a few quite significant areas have been cordoned off, which for a small zoo was a big deal. This meant that once they were at the play area they were reluctant to leave as they were aware it wouldn’t be so easy to get back to. It didn’t stop the fun though.Continue reading Amazona Zoo & Football Golf
UK Adventure Trails at Raynham Estate
On Saturday L and I headed off to Raynham Estate to explore the woods and see what we could find. UK Adventure Trails promised animals, aliens, fairies and more. A fun woodland trail that should take around 45-60 minutes to complete.Continue reading UK Adventure Trails at Raynham Estate
The Wind in the Willows
As you all know I have been very much looking forward to the start of Interlude in the Close, the line up is phenomenal and it’s a joy to have theatre back.
Things kicked off with The Wind in the Willows, a musical production written by Academy Award winner Julian Fellowes with music by the award-winning Stiles & Drewe, presented by the Turbine Theatre, London.Continue reading The Wind in the Willows
A Circus Carol
Teeth are brushed, pyjamas are on and stories read. I’ve just finished tucking a very happy and rather excitable child into bed after our wondrous trip to Norwich Theatre Royal to watch A Circus Carol.
A Circus Carol is part of A Right Royal Christmas running a Norwich Theatre Royal from 16th December to 24th December and it is so good to see the Theatre back up and running, especially with such a great programme.Continue reading A Circus Carol
Getting Festive at Silverstone with LAPland
Last week we headed off to Silverstone to check out their most fabulous Christmas event, LAPland. It was brilliant. The lights, the atmosphere, the set up. Just getting to have be on such an iconic track in our car was amazing. It’s definitely worth a visit.
Last week I left work a few minutes early so I could get home and fill the car with snacks, blankets and a small picnic dinner. I picked L up from school and as soon as we got back home, Christmas jumpers were donned and we got straight into the car and started our journey to Silverstone, we were on the road by 3.30pm which I thought was quite an impressive turnaround!Continue reading Getting Festive at Silverstone with LAPland

Boating on The Broads this Half Term
I am having the best time with L this half term. His school broke up Thursday and between visits to the zoo to meet a baby giraffe and pumpkin trails and patches we’ve been busy everyday.
But there’s one thing we haven’t managed to fit in. A day on the Broads in a picnic boat.Continue reading Boating on The Broads this Half Term
MYTHICAL CREATURES at Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure
It’s the first day of half term!! Whoop!! I’m really excited to have some time off work to spend with L and he is really excited to have some time off school. Starting the week off with a bang we headed to one of our faves, Roarr!
This half term they are offering half price kids entry if they go in fancy dress and it was really fun seeing all the kids dressed up, running around and having fun. There are lots of fun activities to take part in too.
We caught up with my sister and my niece and just made the most of the fact that we were somewhere a one year old and a six year old could both have fun and that there were plenty of things for us to do inside in the warm.Continue reading MYTHICAL CREATURES at Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure
