Eeek! How long has it been since I last blogged? Too long, I should really make more of an effort. So much has happened since the last update.  I seem to have failed to mention Daniel’s 8th birthday in November when we visited the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff Bay.  I had my birthday in [...]

Just thought I’d post a quick update of how I got on at the Church Christmas Fayre the other week.  It went really well, I sold everything apart from two candles, much better than last year. The baskets on the side are filled with things my mum made.  She made pretty ‘shabby chic’ style fabric [...]

I’ve been meaning to blog ever since the Summer Holidays and here we are nearly into October half term. There’s probably too much to catch up on now and I wouldn’t know where to start. September saw Daniel go in to Year 3, the Junior department of the school and Oliver went in to Year [...]

Thursday 21 June 2012

Yesterday was our 10th Wedding Anniversary To celebrate we decided to go to Tintern for the day.  Mum and dad had Ben and the other two were in school.  So we had a child free day!  We set off around 10.30 and parked at The Old Station and followed the footpath to Brockweir Bridge, then came [...]

It’s that time of year again when I’ve had to raid my arty-crafty supplies in search of things to make Easter hats with.  Luckily this year my mum supplied the straw hats and Easter chicks as she found a shop selling them off at the end of last year.  I still had a dig around [...]

Monday 20 February 2012

I really have been awful at keeping this blog updated lately.  I think the reasons for this are firstly, I haven’t really done very much and secondly, I hardly ever use my laptop as I have an iphone and do everything I need to do on there. Must try harder. I always seem to post [...]

…Father-in-law has started a blog – Chris’s Caravan Adventures.  As the title suggests it’s about caravanning and the places they’ve visited.  So if you enjoy camping, caravanning or travelling, have a read

Few days late I know, but this is the first chance I’ve had to sit down with the laptop for weeks.  The boys have gone back to school today, hubby’s gone back to work and currently Ben is asleep so I’m enjoying a bit of peace and quiet. We had a lovely relaxing Christmas and [...]

Thursday 10 November 2011

Back in May Hubby and I attended a charity lunch for Ty Hafan along with our friend Rhi (post here). At the lunch Hubby and Rhi bidded on an auction item for 4 people to attend a Cardiff City training session and a Q&A with the manager.  Rhi won it and it was agreed that [...]

It’s that time of year again, it’s the Church Christmas Fayre on Saturday and I’ve been busily getting all my glass painted.  This year hasn’t been such a mad rush as last year and for once I’ve got a few days to spare.  I’ve got quite a good selection this year, although I’ve made sure [...]

Thursday 20 October 2011

Thought I’d better pop on and say ‘Hello’.  They last post I wrote was at the end of the Summer Holidays, today they break up for Half Term (tomorrow is an Inset Day). They’ve both settled back in to school very well.  Oliver is loving being in school all day, although it’s mostly a mystery [...]

Thursday 01 September 2011

The Summer Holidays are nearly over for another year In some ways they’ve really dragged, but now we’re near the end, they seem to have gone quite quickly. Other than a week’s camping in Keswick at the start of the holidays, we haven’t really done very much. Hubby has been working and I don’t have [...]

Sunday 07 August 2011

Last week we went on our Summer holidays to Keswick in the Lake District.  We went with mother-in-law & father-in-law and sister-in-law and her two little boys.  The main reason for going last week was because it was hubby’s 30th birthday.  We had gorgeous weather the whole week apart from one day when it rained [...]

Thursday 07 July 2011

Today is Ben’s 1st Birthday I know everyone says they grow up quickly, but it really does feel like the last year has shot by. It’s hard to believe he has gone from this to this in just one short year. He’s not walking yet, but, as you can see, he’s standing without holding on [...]

… at 3pm Happy Anniversary to my lovely hubby It’s also 13 years ago that we met, have a read of my About page to find out how and where.    

Friday 10 June 2011

I know I’m a bit late writing about it, they’ve already been back in school a week, but better late than never, eh? Trouble is leaving it so long, I can barely remember what we did.  I do know the Bank Holiday weekend was mostly wet and rainy so we didn’t really get anywhere, apart [...]

Thursday 26 May 2011

The other day Just Williams blogged about some glassware I’d painted for him recently.  He’d bought 5 different shaped glasses and vases in which he was going to store his paintbrushes and wanted them brightening up a bit.  He wanted me to paint subjects he had an interest in, rather than my usual pretty patterns and [...]

Sunday 08 May 2011

On Thursday hubby and I got all dressed up and attended the Welsh Sporting Lunch, a charity lunch for Ty Hafan held in Cardiff City Stadium. We’d seen it advertised on Twitter and  decided to go as it was reasonably priced and for a very good cause.  Our friend, Rhi, came with us too. We were [...]

Friday 22 April 2011

We had a busy weekend last weekend, and it was particularly enjoyable for hubby. Cardiff City FC ran a competition on Twitter to win a ‘media experience’ for last Saturday’s game against Portsmouth.  Both hubby and I entered (it was for you and a friend to go).  All we had to do was tweet why [...]

Tuesday 12 April 2011

It’s that time of year again, when I have to make Easter hats for the boys to take to school.  I do still have the one I made last year for Daniel, but of course he didn’t want to wear it again. I decided to keep it simple this year.  I bought some Easter stickers [...]
