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.

Feeling Calm #170

For my birthday a couple of years ago I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.

I’ve had a great week. Me and the child have had so much fun. The building work is coming along. I’ve caught up with friends and generally just had a blast.

Here are my top ten moments from the last week:

What You Really Need for Back to School

The summer holidays are nearly over, I can’t quite believe how fast they’ve gone. With two weeks left until he’s back to school, well two weeks and a day, it really is time to get organised.

Now I’m guessing everyone has got uniform, shoes, labels and stationery etc. sorted. So I feel no need to talk about them, instead I’m going to talk about the things you really need but may have overlooked.
