Our Day at The Spring Fling 2018

A few weeks ago I was wasting time on Facebook, as you do, when I saw an advert for The Spring Fling. It immediately appealed to me as it involved tractors, the emergency services and animals, all of L’s favourite things. When I looked into it a bit further I saw the tickets were only £9.50 each and included lunch. I was sold.

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.

One of our favourite day trips is The City of Norwich Aviation Museum.

It is a particular favourite of L and his Daddy, to the point they got themselves an annual pass (£10 per adult or £20 for a family pass). On occasion, however, it is permitted for me to go with them!Norwich Aviation Museum

They are also well situated with a great deal to do in and around them. I’ve spent many happy holiday at the Norfolk Broads.

Valentine’s Gifts from intu Chapelfield

With under a week to Valentine’s Day I was set a challenge to get some Valentine’s Gifts from intu Chapelfield. I was given a £50 gift card and asked to buy a gift for my son, a gift for my husband and a gift for myself.

As this is all from the high street, there’s no need to worry about delivery times or if things are as described on screen, so it doesn’t matter that I’m shopping last minute, it only matters that I can do it all in one place.

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.
