Our Trip To Ipswich

Last weekend we went down to Ipswich to visit Grandad. This had been booked for quite a while and I was really looking forward to it.
We arrived at our hotel, The Novotel, around one and got checked in. We fed Calleigh on our make-shift high chair before heading out into Ipswich for a walk around before it got dark.

 After a walk around the shops we went back to the hotel for a drink in the hotel bar. Calleigh loved the low leather sofas. She was sliding about all over the place and learned very quickly how to slide off them and scurry off across the room. As always she drew a lot of attention to herself.

We went to bed early that night after a long and tiring drive down. However Calleigh had to make a few phone calls before bedtime (we did have to unplug the phone though as the number she liked pressing the most was the number 9).

On Saturday we met up with Grandad and Tess and headed off to Bury St Edmunds for the Christmas Fayre. It was very crowded but we still enjoyed walking around. It was set in the beautiful Abbey Gardens and we saw some Reindeer, Donkeys, Ducks and Squirrels. Paul enjoyed a Pork and Stuffing cob whilst I enjoyed a yummy hot chocolate and Danish Pastry.



We had a really good day, even though it was raining most of the afternoon.
Later that evening we went out to Frankie and Benny's for dinner with Grandad and Tess. Calleigh slept through the meal which was good as it was really busy in there. She woke up back at the hotel to have a play with Grandad before bedtime.

I also managed to catch Calleigh and Daddy red handed sneaking things out of my bag.
Calleigh blamed it all on Daddy of course.
We all had a really good weekend and we hope Grandad enjoyed seeing us too. We must do it again soon.


  1. Tess and I enjoyed seeing you all and you are welcome anytime. we both enjoyed spending time with you all and Calleigh looks so much bigger, she is growing up so quickly.

  2. I love that last photo, she's such a beauty. Lovely jumper too B and once again - I really like your fringe (can you tell by the amount of times I've mentioned it that I'm jealous of how good you look? ;) ) xx
