Norfolk | Cromer

A couple of weeks ago, we joined my parents in Norfolk for a long weekend. It came just at the right time, and we had such a lovely time resting, relaxing and exploring! You can read about the other days on our trip here.

Our final day was Sunday, and we headed to Cromer which is a quite little seaside town on the North coast of Norfolk. Whilst it isn't as pretty as Wells, it was still a lovely place to visit on a sunny Sunday morning! We ambled the streets for a short while in the sunshine, and got ourselves an ice cream from one of the many places to get one. I had a salted caramel chocolate brownie ice cream, which was as delicious as it sounds.

Ice cream in hand, we headed down the (very steep!) steps and ramp to the pier. There is something I really love about a pier at the British seaside, and Cromer's pier was no exception. With the coast to either side, the sun shining and the sea - we were all very happy indeed. The beautiful weather we had this summer really boosted our moods, and it was so nice to be relaxing by the sea.

Dan and I were travelling back to Essex that afternoon, and so we decided we had just enough time to head to the arcades. There is something so nostalgic about those 2p coin machines - it takes me right back to my childhood, which is a lovely feeling. We had such a good laugh in the arcades and won enough drumstick lollies to last us until Christmas (which, weirdly, are sat in my snack bag at work!).

No trip to the British seaside is complete without fish and chips, so we took our places in the queue for one of the busiest places in town, No1 Cromer. The queue went quickly, and we got our food pretty swiftly too, which is exactly what you want when you're hungry from all that sea air! I believe there is a sit-in restaurant, but we chose to take ours back down the ramp to the picnic area looking over the sea - the perfect way to end our weekend in Norfolk.

Have you been to Cromer?

August 2018 in Numbers

Another month gone already! For some reason, August flew by especially quickly - with a trip to Hungary, sorting out more stuff for the wedding and also slowly trying to improve our home, the time is flying past.

1 trip to Budapest. I headed to the Hungarian capital with Georgia for four days. We had the best time exploring this beautiful city, watch this space!

1 day out in Birmingham with my cousins - we had such a great time catching up, especially as we're all pretty spread out across the country.

3 dresses bought for my gorgeous bridesmaids. I am in love with them, and the girls are happy with them too.

1 contact lense trial (which did not go well!) - If anyone has any tips, please let me know.

How was August for you?

July 2018 in Numbers

This year has been absolutely zooming past, so I'll keep this one short and sweet as I'm writing it about two months after I usually would do! It felt important to me to keep these posts up, because I know I will love looking back in years to come and seeing what I was up to.

1 graduation - my lovely Dad graduated from college with a BA in Theology. We had a lovely day in London celebrating his special day.

1 trip to Norfolk with my parents. A very welcome break from the everyday mundane life!

0 RAIN. I can't remember ever having as lovely weather as we did in July.

1 delicious Greek feast cooked by Dan (featured above). Sitting in the gardens in the sunshine for dinner has made such a lovely change!

What did you get up to in July?
