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.

Amazonia Zoo Review

Last week we were on our summer holiday, where we rented a caravan off a friend in North Norfolk. The caravan itself was at East Runton only 2 minutes drive from Cromer. It was the first holiday I had spent alone with the girls and have never been to the area before, I so thought I would ask people what to do and where to go.

One of the main attractions in Cromer itself is the Amazona Zoo, where we were very kindly given free entrance, so we could review it. Although it is one of the smaller zoos we have visited, it has a large selection of South American animals, plus an adventure play area and indoor soft play centre. Continue reading

Single Parent Holiday – Going It Alone

This year I decided to take the girls away on holiday on my own for the first time. Normally my mum joins us and shares the stress with me; however, she is off to America to see my aunt instead (how selfish is that?) This left me in a bit of a predicament, do we not have a holiday this year or do I jump another milestone and take them alone?

I decided on the latter.

When I booked the caravan a few months ago, I was still in two minds whether I had done the right thing. It was a friend’s van on a small site, with none of the entertainment facilities that we were used to. It was on a cliff top in deepest darkest north Norfolk, with no internet AND no phone signal.

But, looking on the bright side, at least there was a cliff to jump off, if it all got too much! Continue reading

Things To Do In The Peak District

Just in case you are all wondering, I am still alive!

I decided to take an impromptu blog break this summer holiday, so I could give the girls my full attention. My aim this summer, is to blog if I find some spare time, but not to feel the NEED to. I have come to realise (probably five years too late,) that children grow up far too quickly and having my head shoved in a laptop for hours, doesn’t do any of us any good.

That said, yesterday we were at the park having a picnic and the girls ran off to play. Thankfully, now they are old enough to swing alone, which meant I was redundant and chose to take the time to update you on our summer holidays so far…
