Starting a new business is a daunting prospect and is far from easy. I don’t doubt that Chris is talented and that given the right audience his creations would sell, but how do we find that audience? I am also pretty sure that my faith in his abilities is not misplaced, as everyone we have … Read moreGetting started!

A couple of the blogs that I have discovered recently and starting following, have had posts (Tash Just Tash – Spooning with the dog; Hippie-Land – My Baby) introducing their furry side-kicks; and as, in my possibly slightly biased opinion, Charlie is the cutest being in the whole world, I thought he also deserved an … Read moreCharlie Chow

We love the seaside and all the fun stuff that goes with it, like ice-cream, fishing, rock-pooling and did I mention ice-cream! Earlier in the year we discovered New Quay on Cardigan Bay. It is really beautiful, with lots of boats ready to take you out fishing, awesome fish and chip shops, good rock-pooling, and … Read moreExploring Wales – By the Seaside
One of my favourite days out of our staycation was to Castell Henllys, a unique Iron Age hill fort recreated with replica Iron Age roundhouses, built right on top of the excavated remains of an existing hill fort, dating back 2,400 years, set in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. I love visiting old hill forts … Read moreExploring Wales – Castell Henllys & Pentre Ifan
