My Happy Places

Sometimes when life gets a bit too much or you just feel like you need to take a little time out to relax and de-stress, people tend to go to their ‘happy place’. I have many different happy places. One of my favourite happy places is Roath Park in Cardiff. It’s not far from where I live and it’s one of my favourite running routes. Being able to take in the scenery of the lake, the lighthouse, and admire the swans and geese is one of my favourite past times. Another of my happy places is a soft play centre… [Read More]

How to claim compensation when a flight is delayed

Going on holiday is an exciting experience for everyone. In the run up to your departure date, you’ve probably enjoyed buying the essentials such as suncream and new swimwear, plus making your travel arrangements to and from the airport, as well as organising your travel money and everything else in between. We can plan and be as organised as possible, but sometimes things can still go wrong. Back in June, my husband and I took our five year old twins to Disneyland Paris. They’ve never been before so my husband and I wanted to make it as much of a… [Read More]

Making the Most of Manchester

Manchester is now a major hub city, and it can be a great place to begin your journey through England (or indeed the entire UK). When travelling in a group of more than three people, it’s a good idea to pre-arrange minibus hire for efficient and safe travel. Larger groups would benefit even more from coach hire in Manchester. With your transport sorted, your next task is figuring out where you want to go. If you haven’t made up your mind yet, the following suggestions may help.

Dining at Disney World Resort Florida

Disneyland Paris is undoubtedly the best holiday we have ever been on. It’s no secret that we’re big Disney fans in our house. Aside from the Disney memorabilia that adorns pretty much every room in our home, my children and I also have the Lego Disney castle on our wish list for Christmas!

Brecon Careg & Cadw Team Up with Kids Go Free Vouchers!

We’re so lucky in Wales that we have so many places of interest in close proximity to our homes. From castles and ruins, to museums and parks, I love a good day out and if it’s free then even better! This half term we’ve really been making the  most of the good weather and getting outdoors as much as possible. My girls love going to the local park then walking back home by the stream so they can play poo sticks! I think it’s so important to get kids outdoors rather than have the cooped up inside in front of… [Read More]

A day out at Dyffryn Gardens with the National Trust

Dyffryn Gardens in the Vale of Glamorgan is part of the National Trust. However, it’s not like your average National Trust place, but instead a work in progress. Over the years, it’s had many uses. From a family home to a training centre and now it belongs to the National Trusts. The Vale of Glamorgan Council have spent £1m on a new roof and stonework and a further £1.3m with grants from Heritage Lottery Fund and Cadw to reinstate five feature rooms. Today, we had the pleasure of visiting Dyffryn Gardens with our five year old twins. Before I go… [Read More]
