Sea Life Centre Hunstanton

One of the first things we noticed when we moved to our new house was that on the main turning for our road was a little brown sign pointing the way to the local Sea Life Centre.

We knew once we'd settled in and after Christmas had been we would head over to check it out.

I took the boys to London SeaLife in the summer for a review but because it was so busy it just wasn't that enjoyable for any of us, so we were hoping this one would be a better experience for the boys.



It was great as soon as we got in, the staff were friendly and it was pretty empty, which was good as Ru was in one of his mood where is someone touched him he would scream bloody murder.
The twins were on his attack radar, so they got screamed at more than id like to admit.
Lucky for us there wasn't a lot of people around to judge.



The boys were all able to get up close to the tanks and come face to face with the sharks, rays and giant turtle.
They absolutely loved it.

We were also there just in time to touch a star fish, they all gave it a go and came away with a medal, though I think Noah was the only one who actually gave the starfish a stroke.






Jon told me before we left (probably to contain my excitement) that they had a Seal Hospital on site.
I literally wanted to run straight there but I behaved like an adult and let the boys lead the way.

I have loved Seals since I was the twins age, for birthdays I used to be given adoption certificates for Seals in Cornwall, one year we even went to visit.

When we lived in Africa, my parents took me and my brother to a local Sealife park and I was kissed by a Seal and my love for the animal grew even more.

So I was in my element when we got to the Seals.



It's lovely to know that the Seals they rescue will be put right back into the wild and the Seals that they have in captivity are there because they aren't well enough to go back into the wild or that they were born in captivity.

We got to watch the very noisy otters be fed.
The boys thought they were hilarious, Smartie and Twix showed us how fussy they could be, and literally stood there until they were thrown they're favourite food.
The staff member told us all about them and answered all our questions.

You could tell she enjoyed her job and wanted to be there.

After seeing the Seals, Otters and Penguins we headed back inside to go and find the Sharks and Turtles.


Noah was most excited about the Sharks so was eager to get to the big tank and see if he could spot them!
The giant turtle was elegantly swimming around and Rupert loved watching it swim.


We also managed to complete our quiz and the boys all received a badge on the way out!


We are planning on buying an annual pass as I know I'll be wanting to go back to see the Seals and it will also give me somewhere to take Rupert once the boys are back at school.

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
