Day at the beach


After a really long weekend at work, I was determined to make the most of my 1st day off on Tuesday. We needed to go School Jumper shopping first, once that ordeal was over we headed down to Pwllheli (on the Llyn Peninsula) to spend the day on the beach.

It's a little over an hour's drive with stunning views along the way, as I started to unload the car I realised that Isabella had forgotten her backpack with her and Martha's picnic. Luckily I had enough food packed in my bag that no one went hungry.

Siblings || August 2016


We had a lovely little family day last Sunday; you know the kind where you venture out and find a great spot for lunch and the kids had a fab time playing in the park - but I didn't take a single photo. In fact, my camera didn't even come out of the bag the whole afternoon. To be honest, I think I enjoyed being present and not hidden behind the camera after a busy couple of days at work.

Of course, when I realised that "Siblings" day was soon here and Osh would be at his Dad's all weekend and I was working all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday - I was immediately mad at myself that I didn't attempt to just get one photo of the three of them together last week. But then I bribed the three of them with an Ice Lolly and took them out to the garden to take whatever photo's I could. Do I wish we were at a beach with a stunning piece of Welsh landscape as our backdrop? Yes! But the most important thing is that I got a photo of my troops together in August.

Me & Mine || July 2016


My little corner of the internet has been slightly abandoned; I'm still adjusting to the new job and the new routine that it has brought for me and my family. I work 3 out of 7 days which suits be perfectly, but the hours I pull in work leave me virtually zombified on my days "off". I'm sure I'll get used to the change of pace in a few more weeks.

Sunday was rota'd as one of my days off this week so we decided that we would spend it wisely and head down to Pwllheli for lunch then take the kids to the fairground - Pwllheli is our "happy place" and all week long the kids had been excitedly reminding us of our plans.
