Christmassing at intu Chapelfield

I’ve already done all my Christmas shopping, but Christmas is about so much more than that. It’s about family and special times, making memories and having fun. You can do all of that at intu Chapelfield and L and I had a brilliant day exploring what they had to offer. So off we went Christmassing at intu Chapelfield.

The Signature Collection by McDonald’s

Last week I was lucky enough to attend a special Signature event at McDonald’s on Boundary Road in Norwich. Husb and L were especially pleased they had been invited along as well. We were there alongside some lucky competition winners to find out all about the new Signature Collection of burgers and McDonald’s collaboration with Julien Macdonald OBE.

My Night at McDonald’s

I’ve never been one to shy away from taking L to McDonald’s. If we’re travelling it’s perfect and he loves it as a special treat. There’s one everywhere you go, you know what to expect and it’s always great value. I was really excited to be invited along to a blogger event at the McDonalds by Norwich Airport.

Fantastic Father’s Day Gifts from intu Chapelfield

Still need to get your Dad a gift for Sunday. I’m here to prove that it’s easy. On Monday L and I headed into Norwich and went to intu Chapelfield, we walked away with bags full of great gifts.

We had been set a challenge. Prove that you can get great gifts for less than £50.00. No socks allowed. Have fun. We could get one big gift, or lots of little ones, that was up to us. We had a £50 intu voucher to spend, which can be used at all the shops inside intu Chapelfield apart from the food and drink outlets.

A New Menu at Turtle Bay

I love eating at Turtle Bay in Norwich. I’ve got a soft spot for it having been there for the launch and visiting several times since. So I couldn’t wait to try out the new menu.

I was really happy to see some more vegetarian options and some new cocktails, as well as vegan dishes and gluten free dishes, not forgetting some new meaty dishes including more burgers.

An Amazing Day at Museum of Norwich at The Bridewell

I hadn’t visited the Museum of Norwich at The Bridewell since I was a kid. A middle school trip if I recall. Today L and I had been invited along to see the half term activities that Dipple & Conway Opticians had teamed up with them for to mark their centenary.

We’d already done loads that morning and I was worried L wouldn’t really be in the right mood, plus I woefully unprepared for a day out with a three year old.

Lunch at Turtle Bay Norwich

A couple of weekends back we headed to Turtle Bay in Norwich for a family meal. As I had been to the VIP opening night a few weeks back I was really excited to be returning and trying out the menu. Husb was potentially even more excited as the guys in his office had been raving about it.
