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.

‘Tis the season to be sneezing (and wheezing?)

Hello and welcome summer. Last weekend was the hottest day of the year so far, with temperatures soaring to a blissful 28 degrees in some areas. As residents of this fair isle, it’s tradition to celebrate the coming of the sun by stripping down to as few clothes as possible and plonking ourselves down in the nearest patch of greenery with the family; a guaranteed lovely day out for children and adults alike…or is it? Sadly, for more than just a few, a day out in nature in early summer can, in truth, be a nightmare of sneezing, runny noses and itchy eyes…

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.

Our Day at Holywell Bay Fun Park & Goodbye

Well this has review has been a while coming, mainly because I just didn’t know where to start. During our stay at Trevornick we spent a whole day at Holywell Bay Fun Park which was right next door. Since we visited they have made the decision to close the park, which is sad, but as we spent a whole day there I still thought I’d share it with you.
