Rainy Day Fun at Bowling House, Norwich

23rd October 2018

We was recently invited to Bowling House, Norwich to try out their swanky venue. A date night or family day, we could decide. As it coincided with Reuben’s birthday we picked a family afternoon. I was a little worried that Jessica may not be entertained after all she’s two, but we were pleasantly surprised…

Family Time at THB Tropical Island, Lanzarote

16th May 2018

We are recently back from our holiday in Lanzarote. By recently back it has been a week now, can I still class that as recent? I’m going to. I have come to realise that holidays will not be relaxing for some time but that’s OK. Seeing the kids have the best time is a great feeling. There will be plenty of time of for relaxing when we are old(er).

When I heard about The Gruffalo Trail that was being hosted by the Forestry Commission I couldn’t wait to take Reuben.

Santa at Oxburgh Hall

11th December 2016

In all the years I have lived in the area, I have never been to Oxburgh Hall. Today I discovered that it is a little gem that I have been missing out on.

The plan was to take Reuben to see Santa, then enjoy a bit of a walk around the grounds and the weather was perfect for it.
