Friends and Fireworks on a Rooftop

I’ve never much celebrated Guy Fawkes night. As a kid I remember standing (sitting) around waiting no end of time for something that lasted just a few minutes.  That was when there were bonfires, do these things still have bonfires or is that another thing health and safety stole? Anyway I’d be freezing my driving… Continue reading Friends and Fireworks on a Rooftop

Chocolate High Tea – The Assembly House Norwich

So I went to another afternoon tea. Kind of. The Assembly House Norwich were putting on a one evening only ‘Chocolat High Tea’, so obviously I had to go. I have spelt that right, the missing e isn’t missing. This high tea was chocolate themed to complement the movie Chocolat that would be showing after… Continue reading Chocolate High Tea – The Assembly House Norwich

An Afternoon Tea Of Wizardry – The Assembly House Norwich

The Assembly House in Norwich is one of my favourite places to go for afternoon tea. In fact it’s probably one of my favourite places to go for a brew or lunch or cake. It’s a grand Georgian building in the middle of a busy city. It feels like another world. It’s beautiful gardens, elegant… Continue reading An Afternoon Tea Of Wizardry – The Assembly House Norwich

Disneyland Paris In A Wheelchair (part one) – The Take Off

Well I’m not flying, so don’t be expecting any tips on accessible flights. I haven’t flown since I was a child. A combination of reasons really. The fear of loosing my wheelchair or arriving to find it smashed up, the discomfort of sitting in an unsupportive aeroplane seat, flying with a wheelchair isn’t always smooth… Continue reading Disneyland Paris In A Wheelchair (part one) – The Take Off

This short post will focus on the accessibility of Prezzo’s accessible toilet, which can be found as part of my ever growing ‘To Wee or Not to Wee’ toilet… Continue reading Prezzo Tombland Norwich

Show Me The Dough – Mindoro (Norwich)

I’m terrible with street names, tell me it’s near that Starbucks on the corner, or just past the book shop. It’s opposite the market or where the good chippy is. I was looking for somewhere interesting to have a birthday catch up with friends (I know I’ve had that surprise tea party, but that was… Continue reading Show Me The Dough – Mindoro (Norwich)

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

Titanic Tea – My Heart Will Go On

So there are many perks of blogging I’ve come to realise over the past 18 month (yes I’ve been doing this thing for 18 months!). Blogging is a great excuse to visit new places. I can drink tea and eat cake for the purposes of research. (More tea drinking posts coming soon!) I learn things… Continue reading Titanic Tea – My Heart Will Go On
