Once Upon A World At JW3!

Once Upon A World At JW3! As a freelance writer and blogger, my job invites me to see a fair amount of theatre, mainly of the family variety but as a trained actress myself with a love for the genre, I tend to accept any invitation to review. It’s a real privilege to be asked my opinion and to be able to give it, even more so when I get to take my children along for the ride and their […]

Blippi The Wonderful World Tour! For the uninitiated to Blippi (devised and played by Stevin W. John) he is an American children’s entertainer who began his career on YouTube after John, in 2014, noticed his small nephew watching low quality videos on the platform.

Cloud B CloudBox Story Telling Night Light Projector Soother!

Cloud B CloudBox Story Telling Night Light Projector Soother! Posie was recently sent the Cloud-B CloudBox Story Telling Night Light and Projector to try out at bed times. It is, as you’d imagine, exactly what it says on the tin in that it does indeed tell stories and project night light images to soothe and lull little ones at bed time. But in fact, it is actually the ONLY story telling box which also has a night light built into […]

Pho Restaurant – Norwich!

Pho Restaurant – Norwich! YES! We’ve been waiting for a Pho to come to Norwich for years and now we finally have one. The still relatively small chain of restaurants has found its way to Norfolk and we couldn’t be happier in its new choice of home.

Canal Toys’ Photo Creator Kids Instant Camera!

Canal Toys’ Photo Creator Kids Instant Camera! Children’s cameras have come on a long way in the last few years and the difference between the ones my older kids played with at the same ages Raffie and Posie are now, is vast, and yet there’s only 5 and a half years between my boys. I’m guessing that was a five and a half years of a LOT of tech development! Raffie and Posie have had some really great, easy to use […]

Pack Your Parent Backpack For A Day In The City!

Pack Your Parent Backpack For A Day In The City! You’d be surprised how many people I meet in my home city of Norwich who have never been to London! Not simply that they’ve never ventured with their kiddos, but they’ve never been themselves! I can’t imagine never having visited the capital city, especially when, really and truly it’s only a stone’s throw from Norfolk! It doesn’t even have to be an over-nighter, totally close enough for a day trip, […]

May Half Term 2024!

Posted in Family Life and tagged .

May Half Term 2024! Well, half term couldn’t have come quicker this year. A week in hospital for Jimmy threw the term time into one we really wanted to kiss goodbye to, and with a week of exams before the holidays came, it was definitely time for a proper rest. I wanted to have a mix of all my usual chaos but with some down time because Jimmy really needed that. In fact, so did Florence after working so hard […]
