Merry Christmas 2

Christmas 2018 at Ynyslas

Well, we had a nice quiet family Christmas at home once again. I was a little preoccupied with server issues that I was trying to sort out for my clients but I put that to the back of my mind and managed to have a lovely day at home. Christmas Eve was spent getting ready,...

Installing a Ground Level Trampoline

If there’s one thing Morgan had wanted for Christmas it was a trampoline. You know the sort, the big blue ugly things that everyone seems to have rusting away in their gardens. He’s been wanting one for ages and we had always categorically said no. We had loads of reason why not as well. They’re ugly. I didn’t...
