Book Review: Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

This is the first Sophie Kinsella book that I’ve read, and I have to say that I think she’s a fantastic, engaging writer. I picked up this book from a Facebook book swapping group. This is basically a group where book lovers can swap books (usually via post as people in the group are from all over the UK), discover new authors and find a new loving home for all the books that you’ve read. I personally love the idea of this type of group and I recently set up my own little group on Facebook for residents of our… [Read More]

Camping, Festivals and Days Out. A Summer Spent Outdoors

This year my husband and I have decided that we’d like to spend as much time as possible outdoors as a family. With so many young people spending the majority of their time indoors on their phones or games consoles, we’re trying our very best to encourage our children to embrace the great outdoors. Being outdoors has so many wonderful benefits from improvements in mental health and well-being, as well as physical benefits such as improved blood pressure and of course the chance to exercise. Of course we can’t always be outdoors when the weather is really bad, but a… [Read More]

Review: Monster Jam, Cardiff

On Saturday we went to Monster Jam in the Principality Stadium, Cardiff. I’m going to be honest and say that before going I didn’t really know much about what to expect and although our twins had seen it advertised on TV, I wasn’t sure if they’d enjoy it, but I have to say we did enjoy it! For those who don’t know, Monster Jam is the larger than life sport that showcases some amazing world famous trucks. The Monster Jam trucks are massive! It’s really hard to explain just how big they are, especially when you’re standing right next to… [Read More]

This Mum Runs Cardiff Social Running Group

As many of my readers know I ran the London Marathon this year. It was my first marathon and although I didn’t get the time I wanted, I absolutely loved every minute of it (aside from being sick at mile 16!). I started properly getting into running back in 2017. Encouraged by a friend of mine I slowly managed to increase my distance and although it wasn’t easy, I can now say that I can comfortably run longer distances. I wouldn’t say I’m a natural runner, but I’ve worked hard at it and now that I have this level of… [Read More]
