Caernarfon Castle

We went to Caernarfon Castle on Saturday. I’d ran past the castle recently on my Coast Path run, but hadn’t been in it for ages – probably since I was Morgan’s age. It’s still as impressive as ever and I just wanted to run around the corridors and up the towers like a big kid...

Busy School Holidays – Windsurfing, Pokémon and a Courgette Glut

The lovely summer weather seems to have deserted us as usual for the school holidays. This is a shame really as I have loads of time off work thinks to the fact that I worked lots of overtime earlier in the year, so I’ve been at home with Morgan. We haven’t been put off by...
