It’s that time of the year again! With less than 100 days ’til Christmas, now is the perfect time to start thinking about booking your Christmas 2021 Santa experience.

The Sainsbury Centre, based on the UEA campus, is an art gallery, museum and café. Primarily focused on world art, the centre itself is free to access and is a wonderful place to pass an hour in its own right. But the Sainsbury Centre also offers a sculpture park which spreads out across the UEAContinue reading “Exploring the Sainsbury Centre Sculpture Park in Norwich With Kids”

Riding Ponies at Rancho Cala Mandia

I’m a big fan of supporting/promoting small businesses, and we stumbled across this one when we were exploring Cala Mandia (the village we were staying in in Mallorca). Located down a narrow dirt track behind our hotel, the ranch is home to 3 ponies, 16 horses, and a gorgeous elderly donkey. In the mornings, betweenContinue reading “Riding Ponies at Rancho Cala Mandia”

Visiting the Drach Caves and Porto Cristo in Mallorca: Fun For All The Family

One of the biggest and most famous attractions in Mallorca are the Drach Caves. Whenever a local asked what we were planning to see or do during our stay, they all told us we would regret not seeing their famous caves: and they were right! Beautiful, enormous, awe-inspiring…it would be easy to run out ofContinue reading “Visiting the Drach Caves and Porto Cristo in Mallorca: Fun For All The Family”

Review: A Family Day Out to Legoland Windsor, Summer 2021

I have a love/hate relationship with Legoland Windsor, considering it both the best and the worst of British theme parks: and much of that has to do with how busy the park is on the day you visit! The mini land is exceptional, a place we could happily get lost for hours. Regardless of howContinue reading “Review: A Family Day Out to Legoland Windsor, Summer 2021”

Challenge Woods at The Nest: A New Adventure in Norwich

Another new adventure for us, and another local adventure too. The Challenge Woods is based at The Nest, which is the Norwich City Football Club Community Hub. Friends of ours had visited, and raved about what a fun (and affordable) experience it was, so we decided to give it a go! The Nest’s Challenge WoodContinue reading “Challenge Woods at The Nest: A New Adventure in Norwich”

Delicious Eats at Norwich Junkyard Market

Today is one of those rarest posts and rarest occasions: a night out without the kids! And as a dedicated lover of food carts, junk food, and cocktails, there was no better place to go than the Junkyard Market in Norwich, which started as a pop-up and is now a permanent feature in the city.Continue reading “Delicious Eats at Norwich Junkyard Market”

A Lazy Saturday Afternoon in Wroxham

We haven’t been on any ‘Big Adventures’ this week, but I thought I would share one of our favourite ways to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon: eating chips and feeding swans in Wroxham! Wroxham is considered the jewel of the Norfolk Broads, and if you’re visiting the area for your summer holiday then you’ll findContinue reading “A Lazy Saturday Afternoon in Wroxham”

Brilliant Beccles Lido: Fun With Kids, or Without!

I like to think my boys have inherited a lot from me: my sense of humour, my blue eyes, and my love of travel, to name a few! But one thing that they definitely share with both me and my husband is our love of being in the water; we are a family of fish!Continue reading “Brilliant Beccles Lido: Fun With Kids, or Without!”
