Wroxham Barns – The Santa Experience!

Wroxham Barns – The Santa Experience! Ooh it’d been a few years since we’d visited to Wroxham Barns but I’m so glad that we rectified that little misdemeanor and had a taste of farm life with them today, just in time to enjoy their Santa Experience! I’m not entirely sure why it’s been off my radar for so long as it’s just down the road, inexpensive to access and the kiddos love a bit of farm action. But it’s firmly […]

The Snowman 2019!

The Snowman 2019! The Snowman at Sadlers Wells is back for 2019 and just as darling as ever. We’ve been every year since Florence was about 5 years old and I have to say now that the season just simply wouldn’t be the same without it. The Snowman by the Birmingham Repertory Theatre is quite unlike any other children’s theatre that we have ever seen offering a sophistication in the genre of ballet, yet somehow managing to translate for the […]

Willows Activity Farm – Santa Spectacular 2019!

Willows Activity Farm – Santa Spectacular 2019! I don’t even know how many times we’ve been to Willows Activity Farm in St Albans but I do know that you can never have too many days out there, and I also know that even when we moved from East London (a half an hour’s drive to the farm) to Norwich (a 2 hour drive to Willows) I was not prepared to give up our visits. It’s a shame that we no […]

New Technology and Car MOT Testing

New Technology and Car MOT Testing Early MOTs were a simple matter. Initiated on the back of the 1956 they tested for just three things: brakes, lights and steering, and the vehicle only needed to be tested every ten years. For a while it was called the ten-year test or the Ministry of Transport test, which over time became shortened to just MOT or MOT test. Over the years, as the science behind accidents was better understood and the public’s […]

Families On A Budget! – How we save on our Broadband, Shopping, Christmas, Family Days Out and more! When Jonny decided to have a career change this September and train to become a teacher we knew that we’d have to have a serious look at our finances!

My NYE 2020 Cottage Holiday Wishlist!

My NYE 2020 Cottage Holiday Wishlist! When New Year’s Eve hits it’s time to make plans. Not of the not eating any more chocolate variety or banishing alcohol… Gosh life is for living after all, but of the ‘something to look forward to’ calibre because new beginnings need new plans and those plans have to be of excitement and something to look forward to. The day to day of work, eat, sleep, repeat keeps everyone floating for sure but those […]
