Christmas Lights

We broke with tradition this year and put our Christmas decorations up a day before my birthday. We usually wait until after my birthday but as it was the weekend and we had little planned for Saturday we decided to get them out a day early this year. Not only that, but we put the...

Birthday Day Out

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. So, after a chilled morning I opened my birthday presents over breakfast. There was a new heart rate monitor...

Cheesemaking at River Cottage

So, Alan treated me to a cheesemaking course at River Cottage for my birthday.  I’m not really sure how we decided on cheesemaking but I fancied a cookery course and I think we thought it would be nice to do some something completely different rather than baking bread or cakes.  We did some research and...

A Weekend Away

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...

Tandem Surfing

Seeing as my Mum was worried that I didn’t do anything strenuous on Saturday morning – other than moth trapping, beekeeping and geocaching – I thought I’d better make up for it. Windsurfing I did get out windsurfing in the estuary on Saturday afternoon. The wind was a little flukey but was gusting up to 28 knots....

Wondrous West Wales Weekend

I know I usually try to have an action packed weekend making the most of what Wondrous West Wales has to offer but this weekend was particularly good. It started on Friday with my usual early morning walk around the dunes and then a trip into town. Anna had a few chores and some shopping...

Sunday Trail Fest

It’s been a while since I’ve been up in the hills. We have been there for walks with the Scouts, but we haven’t even been out blueberry picking this year for a change. The arrival of a new bike changed that though on Sunday when I had a bit of Trail Fest at Nant yr Arian....
