Family time in Norfolk

My Magic Moments post this week is all about our weekend away last weekend.  A rare treat, but especially so, as we spent it with Daddy P’s cousin and his wife.  We spent a long weekend with them, at their holiday home in Hunstanton, Norfolk.  They own a lovely house there, we had our own floor!  Monkey loved running from room to room, getting lost.  We were having family time in Norfolk.

Cousin’s T and R have 3 grown up sons, so they are more than used to having a boy about the place.  This fact alone, made it really easy for me to relax.  If Monkey had a meltdown – they had seen it all before!

On Saturday morning we’d gone beach combing and discovered a Viking Ship.  Well a ship wreck, but Monkey was convinced it was a Viking Ship.

We’d returned home for lunch, the sun was coming out and we decided to head back to the seaside.

We were going in search of some Crazy Golf action but sadly it was all shut up.  We’d forgotten we were in November!

We’d had a lovely afternoon on the seafront and had worked up an appetite again.  Time to head home for some train time before dinner.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
