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 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.

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:

Kentwell Hall

After a lovely morning flying owls at Lavenham Falconry, we wanted to make the most of our child free day. At the recommendation of the guys at the falconry centre we headed to Kentwell Hall. We had never visited before and it sounded amazing. We were not let down and I only wish we had taken L with us as he would have loved it, it is so child friendly!Kentwell Hall
