What we did this week

To be honest with you, it doesn’t feel like we have done much this week! On Sunday my mother-in-law came over for dinner and the girls played snakes and ladders with her, and did puzzles together. It was lovely to watch them together! The girls played on the trampoline in the garden, as did I!  I went to work Monday, and then again on Tuesday. I also went to spin class straight from work on Tuesday. I’m really enjoying the classes, but I really need to work on my diet.  That’s one of the reasons why this week I’ve tried… [Read More]

Buying a new car

Last weekend my husband, Nigel, bought a new car. He wrote all about it in an emotional blog post called, ‘Goodbye Puf‘! PUF is the name given to Nigel’s old car because that’s simply the last three letters of the registration number. My car is called ‘BOJ’ for the same reason! Our twin girls love that our cars have names and they regularly give them cuddles! It was a pretty sad day to see PUF go. When I first met Nigel he picked me up in PUF and the rest, as they say, is history. He’s been in my life… [Read More]

A morning walk at Cefn Onn Park

Cefn Onn

Cefn Onn country park is situated in North Cardiff, approximately a five minute drive away from our home. It’s a well known local park, but one that I tend to forget exists because it just seems so out of place where it is! It’s hidden away at the end of a long road and accessible via a long path that runs under a motorway bridge. This beautiful woodland park is a real hidden gem! The last time we visited Cefn Onn was when our girls were little. We brought the double pushchair with us and I always remember watching my… [Read More]

A workout a day! Update #2

I’m still too scared to look at the scales. Mainly because last week wasn’t great in terms of food. The weekend before last saw me eating birthday cake, too much chocolate and generally just too much rubbish! However from Tuesday onwards all has gone well on the healthy eating front, so I’m hoping this will continue! Now for the honest part. I haven’t done a workout a day. Sorry to disappoint! I did go for a long two hour walk on Sunday with my husband and our girls so that was really nice, even if it did wear me out!… [Read More]

Are you guilty of leaving your children unattended?

Before I had children, I would often cast my unwanted opinion to those who didn’t want to hear what I had to say. I have to admit, that I’d been rather judgmental, but in my defence at the time of broadcasting my opinion I didn’t have children, so I didn’t know any better. Some would say that the fact that I didn’t have children at the time of expressing my opinion should mean that I give no opinion at all. If only the world worked like that, but it doesn’t and everyone has an opinion whether we like it or not…. [Read More]

What we did this week!

Cefn Onn

This week has been a funny old week! Sunday started out lovely. We went for a fun family walk to a local country park and had such a great time. Our girls loved walking through the forest pointing out funny looking trees, collecting sticks and running around! They even had a splash in the water! We didn’t actually realise until we got back to the car, but our little walk had taken a total of two hours! It’s no wonder the girls said they were tired! After our walk, we spent the rest of the day at home and my… [Read More]
