Pensthorpe For February Half Term 2024!

Pensthorpe For February Half Term 2024! We are year round visitors to Pensthorpe taking full advantage of our annual pass which allows us visits even in school holidays! Posie and I regularly trip there during the week to have fun in the daily “messy mornings” held at the indoor play space “Hootz House” (all included in the entry price), followed by fun in the play area, gardens and wonderful playground, but in the school holidays we always like to go […]

Thursford Enchanted Journey Of Light!

Thursford Enchanted Journey Of Light! People flock from all around the country to see the Thursford Christmas Spectacular. We’ve seen it before and it is a real treat, simply stunning for older children and adults and being somewhat of an institution I wasn’t surprised to meet a lady in my gym yesterday morning who was on a coach trip from up North to kick off her Christmas traditions with a performance. We chatted about the fact we were both visiting […]

Wroxham Barns – Christmas 2023!

Wroxham Barns – Christmas 2023! I always do say how wonderful I think Wroxham Barns is, and for their 2023 Christmas Experience offering my opinion is firmly cemented. They go ALL OUT, at ALL times of the year, but Christmas is something else! Raffie couldn’t decide at Halloween if he prefers spooky season or festive on the farm, “they’re both TOO good!” he said, but now that we’re steam rollering to Christmas, with just one month to go, having visited […]

Foodies Festival 2023! Earlham Park – Norwich!

Foodies Festival 2023! Earlham Park – Norwich! It’s been a decade since I worked with The Foodies Festival for the first time, back in 2013 I was invited to come as their guest and sample the delights they had on offer in Battersea Park and I have, since then, worked with them many times. However, this year is the first year I’ve collaborated with them in my home city of Norwich and this weekend coming is the weekend that is […]

Pettitts Animal Adventure Park – Norfolk!

Pettitts Animal Adventure Park – Norfolk! I remember visiting (and enjoying) Pettitts Animal Adventure Park as a child myself and then absolutely year’s ago taking Florence with a new born Jimmy for their first and only trip there. I’m not sure why we never went back but for whatever reason it simply wasn’t on my radar and whenever people have mentioned it the idea hasn’t stuck. Until now… Friends were going this week and Posie and I joined them in […]

Funderworld Norwich 2023!

Funderworld Norwich 2023! We had THE MOST tremendous time at Funderworld Norwich over the weekend! The travelling theme park is here in Norfolk only until the 4th of June 2023 so you’ll have to be quick if you don’t want to miss the thrills at the Norfolk Showground! I loved the way it’s been set up in a giant circle and felt totally safe letting my bigger two (13 and 11) to go off together for a bit. That way […]

Wroxham Barns – The Christmas Experience 2022!

Wroxham Barns – The Christmas Experience 2022! Wroxham Barns is a changed creature since the days when I would take my baby Florence. Back then, more than 12 years ago when we first adventured there, it was a lovely little farm with a small play area, soft play and there were some rides you could pay extra for. The farm was always a great value afternoon out, but we rarely ventured to the ride area as when you have to […]

October 2022 At Pensthorpe!

October 2022 At Pensthorpe! We love ALL the seasons at Pensthorpe. The gardens change and move and grow. They become different colours and different places yet one thing is always the same, it’s a calm and beautiful place to be. I like each season for different reasons and have different places I like to walk depending on the weather and at Halloween half term, a time we have always been very fond of a visit in particular, my favourite way […]
