Summer at Bluestone

I cannot tell you how excited we were to be invited back to Bluestone. We had a fabulous time when we last visited Christmas 2016 and couldn’t wait to see what it offered in the Summer months.Bluestone 2018

We have been to Pembrokeshire a few times and it is a beautiful area of Wales, an area we are rather fond of, but boy is it a long way from Norfolk!! We broke our journey up on the way down with an overnight stay in Newport, this was great as it meant we didn’t have to leave our house at the crack of dawn and we got to arrive at Bluestone nice and early and most importantly ready to explore.Bluestone 2018 Continue reading Summer at Bluestone

Our #RailAdventure to Ely

I recently wrote about how much L and I love to go out and have a little adventure by train. Ely was on our hit list so Father’s Day seemed like the perfect day for a #RailAdventure to Ely with Greater Anglia. Continue reading Our #RailAdventure to Ely

How Hill

I first visited How Hill for a residential school trip when I was in High School. When we were staying on the Broads in our Herbert Woods boat we visited twice, it was nice to take L somewhere I had been so long ago and it was really nice for me to look round as an adult.

Our Holiday in the Sun

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.

Sea Life Centre Gt Yarmouth

We have visited the Sea Life Centre at Gt Yarmouth relatively regularly since L was born, maybe once a year or so. We can make it part of a larger day out at the seaside with ease and L does like to look at some fish.

A Family Break on the Broads with Herbert Woods

I don’t think I have ever hidden the fact I love living in Norfolk. I love the quiet rural lifestyle and how lucky we are to have a stunning coastline, plenty of castles and attractions and the Norfolk Broads all on my doorstep.

We have spent a lot of time on the Broads over the years and I can’t think of a time since we’ve had L that we haven’t got a boat out in one form or another.  Continue reading A Family Break on the Broads with Herbert Woods

Feeling Calm #109

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.

O it seems I can only be good at one thing at a time. I can be good at We have had a glorious long weekend on the Norfolk Broads in a fabulous boat. It was a well earned break and pretty much all my highlights have been from those few days!

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

Banham Zoo

For four years now we have had annual passes to Banham Zoo and though I’ve mentioned it several times, not once have I actually written about it! Well it’s time I fixed that.
