The Keepers Daughter Present A Christmas Carol At Biddy’s Tea Room – Norwich!

The Keepers Daughter Present A Christmas Carol At Biddy’s Tea Room – Norwich! Immersive theatre for children is a bit of a thing for me! I blooming love it (as you will have gathered if you’ve been reading any of my theatre reviews lately) and anything a little bit different and a smidge more friendly than a huge theatre for a child is right up my street. I don’t personally find taking my children to a big theatre a daunting […]

Bourgee Arrives In Norwich!

Bourgee Arrives In Norwich! A brand new restaurant opened in Norwich last week serving steak, lobster and cocktails (among other things) and I was invited to the launch party – Oh yes please! Only… Oh no… Jimmy got a sickness bug, passed it around a bit and my invitation had to sadly be declined. I watched on social media as my fellow Norwich bloggers tucked into the divine looking canapes and supped on Champagne thinking darn it… And Man, that […]

Aladdin Pantomime 2018 – Norwich Theatre Royal!

Aladdin Pantomime 2018 – Norwich Theatre Royal!  Pantomime… It’s a bit like Marmite I’m afraid, you’ll either love it or… But however you feel there’s no denying the place panto has in British history and from the traditions of the actual performance: Slapstick, musical, comedy. And the characters: Principle boy is a girl while the dame is a man in drag. The style: Risqué, full of innuendos and basking in audience participation – to the very real fact that this […]

Past Present And Future!

Past Present And Future! There’s a photograph of me, my Mum and a baby Florence sat in my Grandma’s garden under a dappled summer’s light. It’s not a good quality photograph, probably taken on someone’s phone, but one which always stops me in my tracks. My Grandma became ill when I was 30 weeks pregnant and passed away weeks later. Florence never got to meet her. Sitting in that garden, on that day when we went to have a final moment, a final tidy and a final farewell before her […]

The Santa Spectacular At Willows Activity Farm 2018!

The Santa Spectacular At Willows Activity Farm 2018! Willows Activity Farm in St Albans is a mega day out whatever the time of year but come Christmas it really does come into itself! Placed in a rather handy location for London dwellers (it used to take us half an hour to drive there but is also accessible by public transport) it’s also on the doorstep for many other southern postcodes so no wonder it’s always busy and full to the […]

Christmas Tech Ideas!

Christmas Tech Ideas! Yep, it’s nearly Christmas and the job falls to me to find something that Daddy wants. History has taught me that socks, pants and aftershave don’t really float his boat but just like buying for my boys seems to be a harder job than buying for my little girl, choosing something that my husband really, really wants is proving to be a very elusive task. Perhaps it’s a man thing… I’ve decided to plump for something technical […]

All Aboard For Santa At The London Transport Museum!

All Aboard For Santa At The London Transport Museum! The above picture was my gang and that of the Modern Mummy contingent this past weekend when we went for our annual festive trip to London to meet up with them and spend a day having fun in the city before heading somewhere after sun down to appreciate the lights of our beautiful capital city. It’s not the quick trip into town that it used to be now that we have […]

Stick Man Live – Leicester Square Theatre 2018!

Stick Man Live – Leicester Square Theatre 2018! You are literally NEVER too old (or too young) to enjoy Stick Man at the theatre in central London. We’ve seen it nearly every year since Florence and Jimmy were tiny and never, ever, tire of it. There’s something about those books by Julia Donaldson which lend themselves to the stage so terribly well that you just couldn’t possibly not some away smiling from ear to ear and somehow even the illustrations of Axel […]

Give Your Sniffles The Cold Shoulder With Olbas Oil!

Give Your Sniffles The Cold Shoulder With Olbas Oil! Last week I was invited by Olbas Oil to attend an extremely informative event with their resident GP (and clearly a cold expert) Dr Roger Henderson. I met up with Sabina from Mummy Matters who was organising the bash to help banish cold symptoms along with a gaggle of other lovely influencers and we talked about all things germy this winter – namely how to avoid picking germs up in the […]
