Fun Fort Salhouse Road Norwich

Fun Fort Salhouse Road Norwich

The Castle Carvery restaurant along Salhouse Road in Norwich has a fantastic kids play area called the Fun Fort. It is an indoor and outdoor play area for only £2.45 per child. Amazingly it is free for children under 3. It is a perfect place to meet up with friends and catch up whilst the children play. The outside play area consists of two large climbing frames. The one towards the back of the picture is a little tricky for toddlers as the ladder is arched and they need lots of assistance. There are plenty of seats with parasols for parents and the whole area is...
18 Mile Walk – Yorkshire 3 Peaks Training

18 Mile Walk – Yorkshire 3 Peaks T...

Well it would appear that last week’s 19 mile training walk was not a fluke. We managed to walk 18 miles along the Bure Valley path. That gives us a total of 37 miles in a week! You may be wondering why I am suddenly attempting long distance walks. On 6th September my Mum and I will be attempting the Yorkshire 3 Peaks in order to raise money for the Pregnancy Sickness Support charity. The challenge is 25 miles over 3 peaks in less than 12 hours. That last sentence still fills me with dread. 25 miles! However, I have had some amazing sponsorship the past week to spur...
Holkham

Holkham

Holkham is situated on the North Norfolk coast and is a 90 minute drive from our house. It is a privately owned 25,000-acre agricultural estate dating back to the 18th Century. With Holkham Hall, a nature reserve and a beach there is plenty to do. We go there each year but it was the first time we had explored the relatively new Woodland Play Area. With a tree house in the sky, high level walkways, rope ladders and a zip-wire, Adam was in his element. Chris went around with him at first and it wasn’t clear who was having more fun. Although the Woodland Play Area...

For the past year Mum and I have been in training for the Yorkshire 3 Peaks in order to raise money for the Pregnancy Sickness Support charity. You can read about the reasons behind our challenge here. Hint hint you can donate towards our challenge here. For weeks and months we were walking 5 miles several times a week. Recently we changed our training to 8 mile walks. However, could we really do a long distance walk? Could we walk say 19 miles? Could we also walk 19 miles with all our gear – backpacks and poles? We decided to attempt it. This would be the walk to...

HG Friendly Play Activities

In 2011/2012 when I was pregnant with Adam I suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum. Unfortunately my story is typical of many sufferers – hospitalisations, medication, isolation… I also added breathing difficulties and pre-eclampsia to the mix. It wasn’t a great 9 months to say the least! Throughout my pregnancy as I lay there being ill I would think about the adventures Adam and I would have together. I made a promise to myself that once the hyperemesis was over I would value each day. Hence we took part in a 100 day play challenge and started our blog. It was...

W is for Water Spray Bottles

We are thrilled to be participating in the Everyday Fine Motor Materials From A to Z series, hosted by Still Playing School. Activities that develop fine motor skills work on strengthening the small muscles of the hands. Each blogger has taken an object that is found in almost every home and shared a fine motor activity. We had the letter W. W is for water sprayer bottles! As it is the summer holidays my 7 year old nephew Stevie was at Nana’s house as well as my 2 year old niece Beth. I bought two water spray bottles from PoundLand for the toddlers and reused a...
