Fungi Photos and Identification

Not wanting to be outdone by Morgan’s photography from our recent fungi foray here are my photographic efforts. I’d like to be able to identify the various fungi too, but I’m not to hot when it comes to fungi identification so if anyone knows what they are then post a comment and let me know....

Hotel in Wrexham

As part of our couple of days away, after a day at the Blue Planet we stayed in the Premier Inn Wrexham. Although close to Wrexham it is a little way out of the town and felt nice. It was never going to be a luxury night away but it was perfect for us. Cheaper...

Newark Park

We’ve just got back from a busy weekend. We drove to my parents house in South Gloucestershire on Friday evening. Saturday was then spent first taking my car to a garage in Dursley. Mitsubishi had recalled all cars like mine to have a part exchanged so as they were doing it for free in it...

Power Cut – Saving Electricity

As regular readers will know we have been having a pragmatic approach to saving some electricity recently. We’re still using the electricity monitor and have been keeping the usage down which is good. It is summer of course so we shouldn’t be using much anyway, but hopefully come winter we’ll be careful with our energy...

Anniversary Day Out – Llanerchaeron House

Continuing our anniversary day out we headed off to Llanerchaeron House near Aberaeron. This is a National Trust property so it isn’t cheap to get in but we decided that it was our anniversary so we may as well treat ourselves and have a look round, especially seeing as I’m into gardens at the moment...

Anniversary Day Out – Honey Farm

It was our wedding anniversary on Thursday so although we felt a little guilty about it we sent Morgan off to nursery as usual and had a day out together. Typically I had come down with the dreaded lurgy the night before so wasn’t feeling great and the weather didn’t look too good to start...

Work-Life Balance no. 2

After yesterdays successful work-life balance day I couldn’t let it slip today so managed yet another good day. I didn’t get up quite so early today, in fact for a change I managed to stay in bed until about 7am. I think yesterdays epic cycle ride must have tired me out! So, after some housework...

Having a Clear Out

We have recently been having a clear out and plan to finally get around to sorting out Morgan’s bedroom. He’s getting too big for his toddler bed and needs some proper storage where he can put all of his toys, and believe me there are lots that need a proper home. I have been a...

Rhydypennau Inn

We thought we’d treat ourselves to dinner out last night and as the Wild Fowler is no longer doing the 2 for 1 offer we thought we’dgive the Rhydypennau Inn a go. We hadn’t been there fore a while and yet again it had changed hands since we were last there (or at least it...

Walking around Wales

As a new YHA member I was looking at the location of Youth Hostels last night and dreaming about the idea of walking around the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path stopping off at the Youth Hostels on the way. I’m not sure if it is possible yet to do this, but I’ve always wanted to walk the...
