Generally speaking Saturdays are my day to catch up on the housework, however as it was the first day of my holiday I decided to throw caution to the wind and forget about the mountain of dirty washing waiting by the washing machine, the dirty plates sitting in the sink and the vacuum hidden under the stairs and head off out with Roo and Tigger.
First up we visited out local library, time to return a couple of overdue books (bad mummy for forgetting to return them last week, I’ve paid my 10p fine). Roo and Tigger always like popping into the library, they have a lovely children’s area that is bright, has a wide range of books to choose from as well as story train to sit on and enjoy a good story.
We’d planned to visit the Elizabethan House Museum which is just a short walk from the library, however I wasn’t aware it was closed on Saturdays (bad mummy I really should have checked ahead of time). Undeterred we opted to pop along to the Tolhouse Museum that is adjoining to the library. Over the Easter holidays they are holding a Fools Gold II trail, so armed with a clipboard, pen and a set of questions we headed off in search of the clues hidden around the Tolhouse.
Tigger on the other hand was more interested in pirate ship!
After collecting our pirate’s treasure we headed back to the car and drove round to the seafront to visit the Sea Life Centre Great Yarmouth. Our local Sea Life Centre has a Moshi Monsters event running at the moment which involves little ones heading around the centre in search for hidden Moshlings and answering facts about the different species within the Sea Life Centre. Having an annual pass we had already completed the trail once or twice before but Roo and Tigger were just as excited to be handed their workbook alongside their dive log book.
The Sea Life Centre is one of our favourite local attractions to visit and I’m so pleased that we renewed our annual passes again this year so we can visit whenever we want. The penguins hold a special place in Roo’s heart especially Boomer so we often send more time looking at them than any other area. Tigger decided he’d seen enough penguins so sat down to study his dive log book instead.
By the time we had finished in the Sea Life Centre it was lunchtime so we headed home. After lunch Roo and Tigger decided to play in the back garden (or decked yard as it actually is), so I managed to crack on with the housework before we snuggled on the sofa for a family film.
What did you get up to today?
