There is so much to do we can’t wait to visit again to catch the bits we missed and to repeat our fave bits. I can’t sing its praises enough but I shall try to keep this review a reasonable length, promise.

Dealing with the Summer Holidays

Well that’s one week of the final half term of school done and dusted, only five weeks of school left. If you’re a working parent like me you’ll already be planning for the long six week break of summer.

I’m ridiculously lucky at my work and have been able to book most of the break off as annual leave. I’ve had to rope the inlaws in for a few days and obviously my husband can take time off as well. However, despite that I’ve still had one week left to cover and only having one week makes me one of the lucky ones! Most of my friends are at their wits end trying to make it all work.

Fun in London with Greater Anglia

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.

Cheese Making at Fielding Cottage

Last Sunday I was lucky enough to experience a whistlestop cheese making tour at Fielding Cottage as part of a press day. I made my own cheese, got to see how they make their award winning cheeses, eat a lot of it (I was not complaining) and have a look at the gorgeous holiday cottages.

Why Cromer Should Be On Your Bucket List

The north Norfolk coast has long been where the Chelsea set spend their weekends, but until now, the seaside town of Cromer has never been on the ‘trend-setting’ radar.

The seaside town has become a magical escape for day trippers with an eye for quirkiness and a secret escape for celebrities including Amanda Holden and Sophie Ellis-Bexter.
