Scattering His Ashes

  I’ve never scattered ashes before or really had anything to do with them. My grandparents are buried in a cemetery in West London. My father’s ashes are buried in a church graveyard in Manchester. I was there when the burials took place but I’ve never…

Ode to Norfolk

  It was the proximity to home that first attracted us to Norfolk 5 years ago. We wanted a short trip away in early September to celebrate Andy’s 40th and had a 3 month old baby who hated being in her car seat. The North…

Another Week in North Norfolk

We had a lovely week in north Norfolk in July. It’s our 3rd holiday there in 2 years – that should tell you something! We have absolutely fallen in love with the area – the beautiful coastline, how family friendly it is and how…

Postcards from Norfolk

  I’m a bit of a stuck record with posts about holidays in Norfolk – we’ve been there 4 times now in the last 3 years. The area just works so well for us – beautiful beaches, gorgeous market towns, plenty to do in…

SEA LIFE Hunstanton

An afternoon at the SEA LIFE Centre in Hunstanton, Norfolk. Back during our trip to Norfolk in July, we occupied a rainy day with a trip to the SEA LIFE Centre in Hunstanton. The girls were really excited about going but I’d been put off…

Our Day at Blickling Hall, Norfolk

I mentioned on a Living Arrows post a couple of weeks ago that we spent one day of our Norfolk holiday visiting National Trust property, Blickling Hall. I didn’t include it in my Norfolk round up post as I had far too much to…

A Week in Beautiful Norfolk

We spent the first week of May in Norfolk with Andy’s folks. Despite the rain and the North Sea wind that followed us around, we had a lovely week, relaxing and making the most of the sun when it appeared. We went to North…

The Poppy Line | North Norfolk Railway

Before we started the journey home we decided to take the trip on the North Norfolk Railway (known as the Poppy Line as it winds through fields of poppies) that we hadn’t been able to a few days earlier.  After we had packed up our car and…

A windy day at West Runton

On our last full day in Norfolk we went to West Runton for another beach day. The village of West Runton is a bit more off the beaten track than Sheringham or Cromer. I think it might be my favourite beach out of the three we…

Barnhouse Holiday Cottages, Norfolk

In the middle of September we had a lovely four day break in North Norfolk. A sort of continuation of Andy’s 40th celebrations and if it hadn’t been for that then I’m not sure we would have got away this year. I certainly didn’t…

Life in photos | late summer 2014

I’m so sad to say goodbye to the summer, it’s gone by so quickly in a baby haze. Though the weather has been good this week, there’s a definite early morning chill, the leaves are on the turn, the parks are empty of school-aged…
