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

Accessible Toilets, Suffolk

The Apex Bury St Edmonds

Although I’ve been to Bury a few times and attended a show at The Apex, I don’t think I’d checked out this particular loo until I went to Bury Christmas Fayre this year. This accessible toilet is situated on the first floor of The Apex Theatre. A lift on the far left of the main… Continue reading The Apex Bury St Edmonds

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

Battle and a brew – Thirsty Meeples

I have to tell you about an amazing place I discovered in Oxford recently. I don’t know how I’ve not told you about it sooner really, but sometimes life stuff gets in the way. I’ve been a bit slack on the ol’ blog writing lately. I know I’ve had a few 'guests’ here and have… Continue reading Battle and a brew – Thirsty Meeples

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

Twenty Questions With – Lorna

It seems people enjoy answering random questions just as much as I enjoy reading them. My Twenty Questions has turned into a bit of a series. I’m loving it! So my second interviewee is Lorna over at Gin & Lemonade. I insist you check out her brilliant blog, she’s been at it a while! You’ll… Continue reading Twenty Questions With – Lorna

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
