Our week away in Norfolk

You may have seen on my Instagram or Twitter that we have just spent a week away in beautiful Norfolk. We have been house and dog sitting for my husband’s grandparents while they were on holiday. They live in a gorgeous house down a country lane not far from the coast and we had such a lovely time exploring the local area, so I thought I would share some of what we got up to and a few loads of my favourite photos we took while we were there.

We started off the week with a picnic and a walk around Sheringham Park which is a National Trust property. The views were amazing, you could see right out to the coast. Unfortunately we had one very rainy day so we decided to go swimming in the morning then we baked cupcakes in the afternoon which Bella loved (both the baking and the eating of course!). On Wednesday we took a picnic lunch down to Happisburgh beach and took Bella to the new park there before the heavens opened again in the afternoon. On Thursday we spent the day in Norwich city, we had lunch in Pizza Express then did some shopping in the afternoon. I love Norwich, I think its such a beautiful city and it has such character with its little lanes and cobbled streets. On the Friday we visited Wroxham Barns Junior Farm in the morning which you can read more about here. To make the most of the sunshine we then went onto Felbrigg Hall in the afternoon for a walk around the gorgeous walled garden and an ice cream. In between all of the above we had lots of lovely walks with the dogs and some much needed relaxation time back at the house while Bella took her afternoon naps.

Overall we had a great week, we have had a pretty hectic few months so were desperately in need of a little family break together. Bella has thrived from having both Mummy and Daddy around for a whole week, she’s been coming out with loads of new words including now saying ‘yes’ in a really british accent instead of ‘yeah’, it is seriously cute!! Bella’s been making us laugh with her crazy antics every single day and i’m really going to miss her when we go back to work this week. Luckily we now only have a couple of weeks back home before we jet off to Ibiza for a week in the sun! It will be Bella’s first plane trip and i’m extremely slightly nervous about it now! So any tips for flying with an almost two year old would be much appreciated!!
