In our house we are big fans of keeping pets.  Currently we are owned by 4 cats, 1 rabbit and 7 chickens.  Tomorrow we are adopting another chicken who sadly is unable to stay in her current forever home.  I have previously owned 3 other cats who are sadly no longer with us.  All of these cats apart from two of our current cats, who we adopted last year, have come to live with us as kittens.  To me kittens are just cute and cuddly and they all have their own mischievous personalities.  Cats are loyal and all of ours… View Post

This half term we went on a day trip along the Cambrian coast to the seaside town of Cricceith.  Cricceith is a beautiful seaside town with 2 lovely beaches which are separated by 13th Century Castle perched high on a rocky peninsula overlooking Tremadog Bay in North Wales.  This visit gave us the opportunity to tick 2 items off our Welsh Bucket List. We walked from the train station down to the south beach, a walk of around 10 minutes via Cadwaladers Ice Cream Parlour.  The Girl was in her element!  Tubs and tubs of yummy ice cream and sorbets.… View Post
