Fed up with the snow? Thinking of booking a holiday? As a Norfolk girl I may be biased but I cannot recommend the Norfolk Broads enough. They are beautiful, so peaceful and relaxing. 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.
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.
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.
As anyone who entered my recent competition will know, Turtle Bay have launched their first ever Christmas menu. So we did the only logical thing and went to try it out. Hopefully my competition winner will enjoy it as much as we did. Continue reading Trying Out the Turtle Bay Christmas Menu
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.
