Last week we upped sticks from Richmond and drove three hours East to arrive at our holiday home on the Norfolk Broads for a family break. It was just the four of us, me and Richmond Daddy and our two littles, and we were oh-so-lucky with the weather, which shone brightly for us the entire week! It rained the day we arrived and the day we left, but every day in between was bright, warm sunshine – perfect for enjoying a very British vacation.
We stayed in one of the self-catering pine lodges at Clippesby Hall, which turned out to be a great base from which to explore the area. It was great that both the girls were able to have their own room – it made bedtimes A LOT easier than in the past when they’ve shared (#totalnightmare) – and the lodges were spacious enough for them to have a run around and a play (we brought some of our toys from home) when we weren’t out on holiday adventures. My one panic moment came when I realised that they didn’t have WiFi and so all my good intentions of spending a week catching up on my blogging were soon put to one side. But, I must admit, it was probably a good opportunity to switch off from everything and enjoy some much needed relaxation time as a family.
I’m going to write up a few different posts about what we got up to Norfolk, but in the meantime – here are a few of my very favourite snaps from our very lovely staycation:
Just looking at these is making me long to be back on holiday, especially hearing the rain beating down on my roof as I type! Still, we have made lots of memories and I’ll enjoy reflecting back on them as I go through our pics and I share some of our adventures from Norfolk over the next week or so.
Happy Holidays xoxo
