My First Panto – Jack And The Beanstalk – Norwich!

My First Panto – Jack And The Beansprout – Norwich! This time last year we went with friends to see the ‘My First Panto’ at The Garage in Norwich and Raffie slept through pretty much the whole thing – which at just a few weeks old was to be expected! Jimmy loved it however and as he was at the top of the recommended age range I thought that was pretty good going. This year when I was invited to […]

The Full Monty Tour – Norwich Theatre Royal!

The Full Monty Tour – Norwich Theatre Royal! I remember seeing The Full Monty for the first time and being blown away – this wonderfully fun and yet poignant tale made me laugh and cry and I remember thinking how incredibly clever the writing must have been to provoke that kind of reaction in the viewer. It’s a brilliant film, which on paper should translate well to the theatre – lots of fun and raucous energy from both the performers […]

The Snowman – Sadlers Wells – 2018!

The Snowman – Sadlers Wells – 2018! The first year we saw The Snowman performed by The Birmingham Repertory it was just Florence and I.

It’s a […]

I know my body is amazing but […]

Karaoke At The Bowling House Norwich!

Karaoke At The Bowling House Norwich! A couple of week’s ago Jonny and I had a really fun date night at The Bowling House in Norwich. The Bowling House is a kitsch and bijou bowling alley filled with artistic details and vintage feels where you can dine (the food was exceptional on our date), drink (cocktails are pretty special), bowl (obvs) and now you can even hire their private karaoke booth! Basically, there’s no need to go anywhere else if […]

Dearest My Loves!

Dearest My loves, I was writing to Raffie on the 9th of every month as a way of keeping a diary of his milestones. He turned one and I decided to stop the open letter posts to him and instead, when I feel like it, I will write to all my little loves to keep up with what they are doing and to look back and remember when things were. My blog is nothing if not an invaluable tool for […]
