Anna and Morgan in Clifton 1

Treasure Hunt in Clifton

As yet we still haven’t organised a proper family holiday for the year – although, we did of course go on a canoe building workshop in the Lake District earlier in the year so I wouldn’t feel too sorry for us! We have just got back from a trip to my parents as well. We were...

What is wrong with people?

This part of Wales can be the perfect place to live at all times of the year and whatever the weather, but when the sun has been shining for a week or so, the temperatures are in the 20’s and there hasn’t been any rain it’s a paradise. Clear blue skies, gentle breezes and clear...

Bank Holiday Activities

Dawn Chorus in the Dunes That was a good bank holiday. My usual early start but for a change I didn’t get up immediately but lay in bed listening to the dawn chorus. The blackbirds and sparrows were in good voice and they were soon joined by Skylark too. I’m sure there were robins and plenty...

Marble Run

Well, building this marble run was a lot more complicated and took a lot longer than we had expected. All done now though and I did have a bit of help from Morgan! We just need a battery to see if we can get it working fully automatically now. Marble Run Every little bracket and...

Dead Whale at Ynyslas

I’d already said that we’d have to get out for a family Boxing Day Walk, but encouraging Morgan to do so may not be easy. However, during my Boxing Day Swim I discovered from a dog walker that there was a dead whale washed up on the beach. A dead whale at Ynyslas? that should be...

Christmas Day 2015

Well, it’s Boxing Day so we have survived the madness of Christmas Day – Hope everyone else had a good day, we did. Lots of food, lots of drink, lots of fun and lots of games. Lots of presents under the tree, lots of lego and lots of fiddling with gadgets and lots of family time...

Turkey Dinner at Winter Stream Farm

As usual before Christmas, we head to the South West to see my family and go out for a Christmas meal. This year it was at the Winter Stream Farm not far from Winterbourne. We set off from Aberystwyth after work on Friday, just a little later than usual as Morgan now has a cornet lesson...

Bee Brains at ABKA Quiz Night

Woohoo, our team, ‘The Sleepy Heads’ won the Aberystwyth Beekeepers Association Quiz night. Our team was so called due to the fact that the quiz was on Tuesday evening and we hadn’t got back from France until about 2am on Tuesday morning, so we weren’t exactly spritely! We did OK though, holding second place all the way...

Lazy Boy!

It was the last day of the school holidays on Tuesday and a day before Anna’s birthday so we had a busy day – or at least I did. Morgan was supposed to help out but the lazy boy didn’t actually do much other than play on his computer or when I told him to...
