We made a last minute decision on Friday evening and drove down to Gloucestershire to visit family.. Even morgan was a little surprised when we said we were going, he couldn’t quite believe that we would just go like that without any forward planning
Saturday was spent first visiting trying on some clothes my Mum had got from a local shop, then visiting my brothers to borrow clothes from him (which were a little too big!) and finally a drive out to Cribbs Causeway and a visit to TK Max to buy yet more clothes for snow-boarding. Anna now has a new Trespass jacket and a new fleece from the little shop near my parents house and a pair of Billabong trousers from TK Max. I have a new Dare2Be jacket which turned out to be top of the range once I looked it up when I got home… Typical of me to have all the technical features! Morgan did well with a new jumper, a new jacket, a new pair of trousers and some boots… We still have quite a bit to get though, trousers for me, and gloves hats and goggles all round… It soon mounts up and at this rate we’ll have to book a snowoarding holiday every year to make use of all our new gear! Although we’ll be able to wear most of it to keep warm on the beach here in Wales!
Sunday was spent driving home and we decided to simply follow the instructions provided by my Sat Nav. We did the same on the way there and it took us on our usual route, but on the way home the route was quite different to the way we usually go, although there was very little in it time or distance wise. It still gives us an alternative though which is always nice. Morgan slept most of the way home and didn’t wake up until we got to Nant Yr Arian, so we stopped off there for tea and cakes and a play in the playground… All in all a good weekend away.
