Family Get Together

We spent last weekend at my parents house in Gloucestershire for a Christmas family get together. Well, I say the weekend, but it was actually quite a quick visit. We headed down straight after work and school on Friday evening. Once there we had dinner at their house and then sat around chatting before heading off...

Haircut 100 Percent

Morgan decided it was time for a haircut. So, while we were at my parents at the weekend, Kia my niece cut his hair for him. He doesn’t do things by halves – talk about drastic! Quite a transformation I think you’ll agree!   I guess it should be easier to look after, but will need...

Yet another year older for me as it was my birthday on Sunday. This year, there were no exciting adventurous sporting activities which was probably a good thing as I was still suffering with a lingering lurgy.

I had hoped that Anna would have blogged about her Cheesemaking course by now so that I could have linked to it from this post. She hasn’t yet so I’ll just have to post this without the link and add that later. I’d bought her a day long cheese-making course at Hugh Fearnley Whittingstalls River Cottage HQ...

A Normal Week

I know, I didn’t think there was such thing as a ‘normal week’ these days, but last week does indeed seem to have been one. Hence the lack of blog posts here. There wasn’t much to write about really as it was just a normal week. A Normal Week Bike racing on Sunday, School and...

Bottle Flipping

Whilst I was out on Sunday at the Carmarthen Showground Cyclo-cross event, Morgan and his friend James decided to do some bottle flipping. It’s one of those crazes that seems to be sweeping the nation and as a pre-teen Morgan of course jumps onto every one of them. They made a few YouTube videos of...

Parents Evening

We had our first Parents Evening at Morgan’s new school earlier this week. A chance for us to meet his form teacher and see how they thought he was settling in. As far as we were concerned he seems to be loving it. Always keen to go to school in the mornings, loving the independence...
