I absolutely love York. It’s so historic, and charming. We have been to York a few times on weekend breaks, but now we live so close it’s perfect day-trip distance. Hooray!
I was talking to my Mum and my sister about coming to South Yorkshire to visit this weekend and I mentioned that Oliver needed to do a project for his Tudor homework. Usually I leave it up to the kids to decide how they want to do their own projects, but sometimes these projects are displayed to the parents and I’m always the one who cringes because we should have made more of an effort!
Norfolk Lavender has been on my list for a while, and even though it was an hour away from where we had already driven to, that is where we decided to go. I thought it would be relaxing, inexpensive, and we would only need an hour or two there. The kids were not impressed – they were looking forward to seafront amusements.
The weather has been absolutely amazing for the past two months, it was inevitable that it would start to rain as we packed our car for our summer holiday in Norfolk. It’s ok though because it didn’t last long and by the time we reached Suffolk the sun was shining again.
We didn’t schedule a stop, we pulled off the main road when we got to Thetford, and followed the first brown sign we saw, which took us to Brandon Country Park.
