Journey to Dragon Mountain

Last weekend we were invited to Warwick Castle again, but this time it was for the premier of Mike the Knights new film, A Journey to Dragon Mountain. I do like a good film premier and I’m pretty sure it won’t be long before I’m asked to London for the red carpet treatment…

In my dreams.

For now though, I was happy to watch the kids be amused by Mike and Evie’s family antics, as they followed their father on a quest to return the sparkly ball jewel to the Dragons Mountain. I must admit I spent most of the afternoon humming sparkly ball, sparkly ball, jam tarts, la, la, la, la, la, laaaa. Continue reading

When I Left School…

At certain times in your life, you need a change. Sometimes it’s as easy as a new haircut or clothes style, but sometimes it takes something more drastic, like a change of career.

I have been a hairdresser since I was 16; it was never supposed to be my life long career path. I chose it because I’m artistic and wanted a job where I could show my creative flair. I fell into it, because like many kids, I still didn’t really know what I wanted to do when I left school.

Top 10 Things To Do In Norfolk

Sometimes when you go on holiday somewhere for the first time, it is difficult to know where the best places to go are. Before we set off for Norfolk this year, I had asked friends on Face Book for their best ideas, for great days out in that area.

Unfortunately, it also meant my phones SatNav was rendered useless, so there was a lot of directional guesswork going on and following of the coastline.

Therefore, I thought it might be useful for anyone visiting the area, to have a readymade list of my top 10 things to do in Norfolk area, which they can print off and take with them. Of course, these are MY favourite 10 things and I can’t vouch for them being yours, but at least it’s a start…

Bewilderwood – A Land Of Boggles And Twiggles

Deep in the woods is a land of Boggles, Twiggles and thorny Crocklebogs… We know this, because we have seen them with our own eyes! They are quite shy little creatures, but if you enter Bewilderwood and you are very, very lucky, you may just get to see them too.

The Bewilderwood is set deep in the Norfolk Broads, between Wroxham and Horning and we were very kindly invited by Swampy the marsh Boggle (not to be confused with the infamous Swampy the tree hugger of the 90’s,) to come and play in his big adventure playground and meet some of his friends.
