We love Mexican food in our house.  Just love it. A few weeks ago we were sent a hamper of Mexican food goodies from Santa Maria along with a DVD of Frozen.  Believe it or not we have never seen it!  The craze passed us by and to be honest I was not looking forward to watching it as after all the hype I thought it would be very cheesy and annoying! For our Mexican Film night we made fahjitas or Rather The Girl did. There really is nothing for satisfying than eating some tasty food with good company that…

There two things I love about nature; the stunning views and the changing seasons. This week we found time for a walk in the country just outside of town in the Snowdonia National Park.  The here scenery is starting to change. The colours changing from lush green to beautiful brown, coppers and russets. Nature at its best. Linking up with Country Kids and #PoCoLo.

Growing up is hard.  One day you are a child then suddenly you wake up and your body is changing.  These changes can be hard for a young one to get there head around.  I feel than 30 years on from when I went through this The Girl will be far more prepared then I was.  My Mother was never one to discuss things like puberty with me and to be honest by the time we got to the talk at school it was too late for me.  I think I was the first in my school year to start…

Cath? You ask? Who is this Cath? Well it has to be said that Cath is one of my obsessions. Cath Kidston. The lady of all things pretty. I just love Cath. All the pretties and wish I could fill my home top to bottom with very. Single. Thing. But sadly this is not to be.  Too many pennies required.  But the small collection I have I really do adore. Tea never tasted so good as one in a Cath Mug.  Such a wonderful size to warm and refresh you in a morning.  A great size for bedtime filled near…

Further south along the Cambrian Coast from us is the picturesque village of New Quay.  After The Girl had a hospital appointment in Cardigan earlier this month we decided to stop off on the way back for some lunch.  At the beginning of November the place was deserted but we had fabulous sunny weather to greet us. A walk around the harbour.  Such views to be seen. A spot of lunch: fresh local scallops wrapped pancetta fried in a little batter. Fun down on the beach with a yummy ice cream. Such a fun afternoon in the autumn sun.   Just…

….life looked like this. This was October half term 2010.  Just a mere 4 years ago.  A short 12 months before this little lady was diagnosed with JIA. Oh how our lives have changed since then.  No more weekly gymnastics, weekly trampolining classes and horse riding lessons.  No more days spent at the farm looking after a horse for the day in school holidays.  No more going to Wales and down to the local riding centre and trotting along the beach on the back of a horse.  Riding through the sea as the casual waves come in to shore. All…

Autumn is coming. The temperatures have dropped, especially for us at night. I like fresh air, I don’t like stuffy rooms and therefore , spend a large part of the year with windows open. The last couple of nights I have had to close the bathroom window, last night my bedroom window was also closed as I woke feeling a little chilly. Being like this has it’s advantages, it’s got to be really cold to switch the heating on. Downside of this, my friends think I’m a freak and don’t visit often. It’s too cold for them! Good side, cheap…
