Friends, Flu and Frustrations

January is usually the longest month of the year, feeling like it has at least 372 days in it. January 2020 has felt quite different. Yes it’s 2020. I’m still having trouble typing and saying it. Sounds like the future doesn’t it?! Twenty Twenty. Well if we are in the future, it still feels pretty… Continue reading Friends, Flu and Frustrations

6 Ways To Get That Festive Feeling (Maybe)

Alice In Wonderland – Afternoon Tea Week

I’m sitting here with my cat in a bit of a blur, me that is, not the cat. The cat isn’t from Cheshire but I do feel like I’ve been down a rabbit hole, that could be the sugar slump though. It’s afternoon tea week and I’ve been to another afternoon tea at The Assembly… Continue reading Alice In Wonderland – Afternoon Tea Week

Pickles, Bugs and Turkish Delight – Peter Beales Rose Gardens

Why is it we travel miles to visit places but never take advantage of what’s on our doorstep? Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think it is. We talk about beautiful views when on holiday, there are plenty right around us though. It was due to be a sunny Saturday (it wasn’t all that… Continue reading Pickles, Bugs and Turkish Delight – Peter Beales Rose Gardens

Circus Of Horrors Psycho Asylum

We’ve all seen The Greatest Showman haven’t we? The musical movie sensation that brought circus back and made us realise Zak Efron is in fact a man. A grown up one, no longer singing at the most inappropriate times, in school. I have a vague memory of going to the circus as a child, I… Continue reading Circus Of Horrors Psycho Asylum

The Bucket List – Norwich

I’m not much of a chip fan really. I know I wrote about these chips. And this post is inspired by a bucket of chips, but really it’s my least favourite form of potato. It’s the stuff with them that interests me. I say a bucket of chips because this post isn’t about my bucket… Continue reading The Bucket List – Norwich

34 Things I’ve Learned In 34 Years

It’s my birthday today, I’m 34. As a teen I dreaded getting old, I grew out of that though. I now think of it as a privilege to age. Many people don’t get that chance. I thought getting old meant drinking tea all day, not knowing what song is number one, struggling with technology and… Continue reading 34 Things I’ve Learned In 34 Years

A Cheesy Lifestyle – Marmalades Royal Arcade Norwich

You probably already know, I love cheese. Grated, melted, deep fried, mature, soft, blue, coated, spread, sliced, on a burger, with pasta, on toast. I love all the cheese. I don’t know how I’ve been blogging for almost three years yet I still haven’t spoken about the magical cheese on toast served at one of… Continue reading A Cheesy Lifestyle – Marmalades Royal Arcade Norwich
