Pensthorpe Natural PArk

This summer we visited Pensthorpe Natural Park for the first time, ridiculous as we are local! It is amazing. Really amazing. We had the best day. There is so much to do we can’t wait to visit again to catch the bits we missed and to repeat our fave bits. I can’t sing its praises enough but I shall try to keep this review a reasonable length, promise.

Visit Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure This Summer

We love Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure and have visited many, many times over the years. It has something for everyone and is the perfect way to spend a day this summer.

Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

I’ve written in depth about Roarr! before, covering all the reasons we think it’s great. Today I’m just going to cover some reasons it’s fab during the summer.

Summer at Barracudas Activity Day Camps

L spent 4 days of his first week off school with the guys and girls (and fish) of Barracudas in Norwich. He went with his best friend and had a blast.

I’ve already spoken about how much he enjoyed it when he went at Easter, and how helpful I’ve found it as a childcare solution. I’ve worried about what to do as a first time attendee/parent at the camp.

Meeting the Vikings at Norwich Castle

Last Monday the kid and I headed into Norwich for a fab influencer party at Norwich Castle. An amazing way to kick off the summer holidays I think you’ll all agree!

Norwich Castle

Norwich Castle is already a firm favourite of ours. I’ve been visiting since I was a child and we’ve loved watching it change and evolve over the years. It’s now a super easy day out for us to enjoy with L, it’s got a bit of everything and we can always find something to do that suits his mood. If it’s checking out the animals in the natural history section, riding a chariot with the Iceni or learning about WW2 we can do it.

Dealing with the Summer Holidays

Well that’s one week of the final half term of school done and dusted, only five weeks of school left. If you’re a working parent like me you’ll already be planning for the long six week break of summer.

I’m ridiculously lucky at my work and have been able to book most of the break off as annual leave. I’ve had to rope the inlaws in for a few days and obviously my husband can take time off as well. However, despite that I’ve still had one week left to cover and only having one week makes me one of the lucky ones! Most of my friends are at their wits end trying to make it all work.

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about our plans for the May half term. I can’t quite believe that we’re at the halfway mark of the Summer term and that he has nearly completed his first year at school.

Shrek’s Adventure! London – Review

Over the Easter Holidays we had a lovely mini break in London. It was fab to have a really good explore and a lovely way for me to relax after all the goings on at home! We only had one real plan for our break and that was a trip to Shrek’s Adventure.

Shrek's Adventure! London

We had visited Shrek once before over Christmas and had a wonderful time. On one hand I was very excited to be returning, on the other I was worried that as we had visited once and it was no longer a surprise, that it might not be as good a second time round.
