Arberth – Narberth

Day off – freezing, grey day, threatened rain, but does that won’t stop us enjoying ourselves… or would it….? We decided that we hadn’t been to Carew Castle near Narberth. On arrival we realised that Mike had left his camera back at the van. Oh no… disaster. So all the photos were taken on the…

Weird Weather Walk

Went for a walk today around St David’s Head, we left the site in thick fog, but 500 metres up the road we were in brilliant sunshine…. bizarre. What is a fogbow? As the name might suggest, a fogbow is the name given to a phenomenon created by the same process of refraction and reflection…

Handy for Pandy….

18th April 2018 Off to Pandy Caravan and Motorhome Club Site for our time off this week. We need to get the car into the garage for its first year health check… After picking up a courtesy car we drove into Hereford having never been there before. Wonderful hot sunny days were predicted for the…

Running for Sport Relief

23rd March 2018 Having lost nearly 3 stone this year through diet and exercise, I have started jogging and having seen the sport relief website I noticed that they were advertising that you could jog, walk, run etc different steps challenges. I chose the Kilimanjaro challenge which involved walking/jogging 58,987 steps which is the equivalent of…

Knitting & Crocheting

Decided that this season I would do some more knitting and crocheting and learn some new techniques whilst doing so. So I invested in a few balls of wool….   I made a bunny for my good friend Pam as she is rabbit mad… loves ’em to bits, and when I saw the pattern I…

Birthday & Christmas Treats – catch up

12th January 2018 For my birthday last year, Antony, Heba and the boys gave me a voucher for a Spa Day at Bannatynes in Leicester. As I had contracted Shingles on the way back from Spain (very very painful… definitely not recommended) we had to postpone from December appointment to January. We had a great…

Welsh Grand National – catch up

6th January 2018 We came down to see Caroline and Allen for a couple of days in Caldicot. Trying to catch up with the family before starting work again. As a surprise and because he’d got some tickets (and the Grand National had been postponed due to the bad weather), Allen had got 4 complimentary…

The Season Starts Here….

I started to write this on Valentine’s night but never got around to posting it, but after being brought to task yesterday by some lovely friends (Sarah and David) who we have met whilst working at St David’s I was reminded that I had been very lax in writing and keeping up with the blog…

Merry Christmas to All

Just one last post before the festivities begin. It’s always a busy period not just for us but for everyone. We did manage go to Harry and Jack’s Church Services, Jack however wasn’t there, so that was slightly awkward … ha ha ha ….  I’ve taken both the boys to see the lights and Father…

And finally…

Sorry its been a week or so since the last blog, but unfortunately I had a bit of a turn (literally), which has laid me up and made the journey home very uncomfortable.  But I had drafted this farewell so thought I’d post it anyway. It’s the last day and we are finally leaving our…
