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]

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]

Our 2017 Family Bucket List

Spooky Spiders

I’ve seen a few of these bucket list posts floating around the internet so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and let you know our plans and hopes for 2017 too! 2016 was a pretty good for us.

We also took part in a few different activities such as a Spooky Spider Crafts at Pughs Garden Centre, and took part in their Butterfly Ball, and we… [Read More]

What we’ve done this week!

I can’t believe that Christmas is over already! The girls are back in school. I’m back in work and life is continuing as normal again, even though my front room now resembles a toy shop and my bathroom a beauty store! I don’t tend to write posts about our week, but I thought this week I would. I guess it’s kind of one of my new years resolutions going in 2017, which is to write down one good thing that happens each week, put it into a jar, and then at the end of the year you can read about… [Read More]

Getting the garden ready for summer

Body warmer

Can you believe that Christmas has been and gone already? We’re into a new year and that also means we’re heading into the warmer weather, although I think we may still have a little while to wait before we can put our sun cream back on! Is it just me that has a huge stash of sun cream in their bathroom cupboard? One thing that I always look forward to at the start of a new year is making plans for the year ahead. This usually involves plans for my blog and work life, as well my own personal plans,… [Read More]
