Time And Tide Museum – Norfolk!

A few month’s ago I wrote a post about my best buys for annual passes in Norfolk. One of the passes I said was that absolute BEST value for money is the Norfolk Museums pass which for a family of four cost us just £85 and gave us access to 11 museums in the county. It really is such wonderful value, especially when you realise that you only have to go to three museums once each and the pass has paid […]

THURSDAYS JUST GOT BETTER – FAMILY NIGHT AT LORD’S!

My Grandpa used to play cricket to a fairly high (but non professional) standard when my Mum was little and she used to go and keep score for his team when she was a teenager. As a result she is a MASSIVE cricket fan and even subscribed to a certain network when they got the monopoly on televising matches simply for that reason alone! Me on the other hand, well, I’ve never really got the bug. I just found, when […]

A Summer Visit To Pensthorpe Natural Park – Norfolk – Review!

Sunday saw us take a trip to Pensthorpe Natural Park in Norfolk and once again be reminded of how lucky we are to live in this county. I am always talking merits of an annual pass for places close to home and this one is now very firmly on my list as one to have! I would come here ALL the time and never get bored of that I am sure and for the children it’s an idyllic day out in the countryside with […]

Bring Me Sunshine At Pizza Express This Summer!

Everyone who knows us knows that we LOVE Pizza Express and it’s not just on my blog that I wax lyrical about the brilliance of their family dining experience. I’m always championing taking kids out for dinner and ALWAYS recommending Pizza Express as the perfect place to go whether in person or on social media! I think, and most importantly my kids think, it’s utterly, utterly fabulous! In fact when I mentioned to Florence this morning that we were going […]

The Wind In The Willows Musical!

We kicked off our summer holidays in STYLE yesterday by taking a trip to London for the show of the summer! The Wind In The Willows is on at the Palladium theatre for the holiday period and we absolutely loved it. No, we LOVED it! This new musical based on the famous Kenneth Grahame novel is a Julian Fellowes collaboration (well, if he’s good enough for Downton) and stars Rufus Hound as the amazing Toad of Toad Hall (could you get […]

How To Give Your Man A Love Island Make-Over From Jacamo!

It’s been the must-watch of the summer so far but on Monday it’s all over, we will have a crowned couple and Love Island will be put to bed until next year when we can get our fix again! Whether you’ve loved it or loathed it you would have had to be hiding under a rock not to notice it and if you missed those amazing abs then you truly missed out! So what ARE we going to do for the […]

Hello Summer!

How has it been a year since I was writing about Jimmy going off to big school? Seems bonkers how quickly this year has gone but alas gone it has and today marks the first day of the summer holidays for my terrific two, the last before they become a trio and we are going to make the most of every single holiday day that we have because before we know it, 6 weeks will have flashed past us and […]

Pregnancy Diary – 29 Week’s Pregnant!

29 week’s pregnant – the end is in sight – nearly! Maybe it’s even closer than I think… Jonny thinks I am completely and utterly mad to talk to the experts who all say my due date is 5th October and think they are wrong but I can’t help it. I feel like I could be a month further along because my last period was so light (not like me) and because this pregnancy was originally a twin pregnancy I […]

Great Things to Do Once the Kids are in Bed!

The first few weeks, months or perhaps even years of your children’s life can pass in a blur of tiredness. Then, one day, you stumble upon that magical thing you’ve heard so much about, ‘The Routine’. Your children start falling into a pattern. They go to bed at the same time every night and you’ve finally got some time to yourself. For some, this happens very quickly but for others, there is a real struggle to find a bedtime routine […]

Beach Ready With George From Asda!

We have had our abroad holiday for the year already, Majorca was perfect a couple of week’s ago but with a burgeoning baby bump I feel my aeroplane trips are probably over for the summer. This doesn’t mean we won’t be taking full advantage of some stay-cay destinations right here in good old Blighty! We have trips planned to Dorset for Camp Bestival (with maybe a beach day at Lulworth Cove on the way home), a week in Cornwall (oh […]
