Party Like It’s Your Birthday

I knew something was going on. I didn’t know what, but I had my suspicions. It’s my birthday today. I’m 33. THIRTY THREE. When that happened I do not know, but I still feel in my twenties. Not my teens, I don’t want those again. So on Saturday, last Saturday, I was going bowling with… Continue reading Party Like It’s Your Birthday

Courgette Cakes and Steampunk Coffee – Alchemista Norwich

I’d seen work being done on a building on St Gregory’s Alley a few months back while I was eating chips from Grosvenor Fish Bar. Actually it must have been quite a few months ago, as on this occasion I believe I was eating outdoors, which never happens as much as I’d like due to… Continue reading Courgette Cakes and Steampunk Coffee – Alchemista Norwich

Not Just Any Afternoon Tea – M&S Norwich

As I haven’t written about tea for a while and it’s been a bit of quiet news week here at Wheelescapades, I thought I’d tell you about a spontaneous afternoon tea I had with a friend a while back. This was not just any afternoon tea, this was an M&S afternoon tea (I know, sorry).… Continue reading Not Just Any Afternoon Tea – M&S Norwich

8 Tips For Sale Shopping With Wheels

Ok so I know it’s probably a little late for catching the best after Christmas deals, ‘January Sales’ as they used to be called, back in the day when there wasn’t constantly ongoing sales everywhere. Back when you really got a bargain and shops didn’t just bring out a load of summer stock, junk, a… Continue reading 8 Tips For Sale Shopping With Wheels

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
