Postcards from the Sandringham Estate


Sandringham Church, Sandringham Estate, Norfolk

I adore visiting the Sandringham Estate. From the open spaces, woodland walks to the church and the house, it’s a familiar place that always delivers on that happy feeling. On our recent short break to Norfolk, having never visited the Sandringham Estate before, Mum was keen to pay a visit. Just to manage her expectations […]

Folly Tearoom in Holt – a vintage gem


Folly, Holt, Norfolk

I mentioned in Postcards from Holt that we had discovered a little gem of a tearoom. Folly Tearoom is situated at the end of Hoppers Yard and is a tranquil haven of vintage gorgeousness. When we first dropped by they were fully booked but the waitress took my number and said she would call when […]

Postcards from Holt


Holt, Norfolk

I really enjoyed discovering lots of new places on our short break in Norfolk. We found quite a few gems whilst driving through the glorious countryside and at our destinations. One of these was Holt. Along with Brancaster I think this is a place that I could live (if I were to ever move to […]

Here Comes Autumn


Pumpkins at Yankee Candle Factory

My Weekly Finds No.11


Well it seems I spoke too soon and summer seems to be a distant memory. As an eternal optimist, and going by the last few years, I do hold out hope that we will have a glorious September. I’m already looking forward to the change in seasons. Autumn is my favourite time of the year. […]

Postcards from Wells-Next-The-Sea


Wells-Next-The-Sea, Norfolk

I’ve only visited Wells-Next-The-Sea once before and liked it straight away as it reminded me of Cornwall.   It is on the beautiful coast line of North Norfolk and is a complete contrast to Cromer, its neighbour, a short drive down the coast. Wells-Next-The-Sea is an area of outstanding natural beauty and I can certainly see why. […]

Review: The One Plus One by JoJo Moyes


Jo Jo Moyes - The One Plus One

It seems I can no longer read a book without thinking about the underlying message.  My second Jo Jo Moyes book was not quite as powerful as the first but I still very much enjoyed getting to know the characters and learning from them.  The One Plus One had been recommended in my bibliotherapy session with […]
