Norwich Castle and I

I don’t know about you but I find that often when you live in or near a place you can end up taking it for granted, you don’t really look at what’s around you, you don’t appreciate the facilities and attractions, you don’t visit the ‘tourist’ destinations. I’m way too guilty of this myself. Don’t… Continue reading Norwich Castle and I

Christmas Balls

I missed it last year and I was determined not to let it pass me by this time. I mean it looked amazing and bizarre at the same time. I was intrigued and disgusted, curious and apprehensive. I’ve waited a whole year for it to return, just so I can say I had it, I… Continue reading Christmas Balls

A Jolly Good Day – On The Bus

Today (well a few days ago by the time you’re reading this) I had probably the nicest bus driver I’ve ever encountered. Odd way to start a post you might think, but for me finding nice customer service, or just meeting friendly people can make or break your day. There’s nothing more disheartening than getting… Continue reading A Jolly Good Day – On The Bus

Best Brunch in Town – House Cafe Norwich

I think I’ve found THE best ‘Full English’ breakfast in Norwich. Which is quite a statement for myself, as I love a good brunch. I am quite fussy though in the way that it is cooked, runny yolk, not greasy, quality sausage, crispy bacon. So to please me it must be great! I had this… Continue reading Best Brunch in Town – House Cafe Norwich

The High Life – Rooftop Gardens

You may have read my blog a few weeks ago titled Burgers and Booths? Well this restaurant I visited only days before was a totally different experience. I'd been hearing about Rooftop Gardens for a while. There was a new restaurant open in town (Norwich) and rumour was it was on a roof, in England,… Continue reading The High Life – Rooftop Gardens

Please Stand Up – Bella Italia

I don't think I've written a negative blog post review so far, and this day wasn't all bad. I enjoyed time spent with great friends and we had a laugh.   I used to be a regular diner at Bella Italia Norwich Red Lion Street until a couple of Christmases ago and an awful works… Continue reading Please Stand Up – Bella Italia

Bella Italia Norwich Red Lion Street

This is an awkward review for me to write because I never actually accessed Bella Italia's bathroom myself. I couldn't get in. I've been to this particular restaurant many times before, although not for a couple of years. You can read why and about my recent dining experience and restaurant access here. I don't remember… Continue reading Bella Italia Norwich Red Lion Street

Pride Unicorn Tea – The Assembly House

It's National Afternoon Tea Week! Yes you heard that right, afternoon tea now has a whole week dedicated to it. Even though I would dedicate almost everyday to this English delight, I've no idea where all these National/International weeks/days are popping up from. Just two weeks ago it was International Cat Day. It was. Anyway… Continue reading Pride Unicorn Tea – The Assembly House

Burgers and Booths – Five Guys

I did something totally unheard of last weekend. I visited a fast food restaurant chain! This isn't so strange, you might think. But if you know me and are reading this you'll know it is, and you may have just let out a little gasp or chocked on your coffee! I'm not a food snob… Continue reading Burgers and Booths – Five Guys

Elbowed in the Forest

I've been a fan of Elbow around 15 years. I like to think of myself as one of the early day fans, I enjoyed their music before it was cool to enjoy it, before some tunes became overplayed on the radio, before they were 'mainstream'. I have been lucky enough to see them play live… Continue reading Elbowed in the Forest
