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.
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.
Shopping centre’s holiday Kids’ Club offers free activities throughout the school holidays
intu Chapelfield is offering Kids’ Club members of three and over a series of fun activities throughout the school holidays, each exploring a different aspect of Norfolk’s landscape, culture or heritage. Always popular, Kids’ Club events give members the opportunity to get hands-on, learn creative skills, meet a few of their favourite characters, and make new friends.
With the end of term and those long summer holidays getting ever closer, will you be getting any Thank You gifts for the teachers and support staff? If you are intu Chapelfield has so many great shops that you can get some fab gifts from for £5 or less. I went shopping to see what I could find.
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.
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.
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.
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.
So we turned up at lunch time on a Saturday that Norwich City were playing at home, it was quiet when we arrived but as you can imagine the restaurant did nothing but get busier and busier.
So as you all know Turtle Bay is opening it’s first East Anglian restaurant in my lovely city of Norwich on the 30th. Well not my city, I don’t own it, but you know what I mean.
On Thursday I was lucky enough to get to go to it’s VIP launch party with my blogging bestie Kate from Love2Eat2Travel and a whole host of other journalists and bloggers from the region. Continue reading My Night at Turtle Bay Norwich
I am really excited about Turtle Bay coming to Norwich. It is all set to open on 30th August. It’s great to see another brilliant restaurant coming to our great city.
