Travel: Day trip to Prestatyn

I thought I’d share with you some photos I took using my phone from a day trip to Prestatyn, Wales.

We went on a whim to join friends for the day who were staying at the Pontins resort.

It took us just over an hour in the car from our front door to theirs which is a really good amount of time, there’s plenty to see on the way too, my little one loved spotting all the sheep and cows and I loved taking in the rolling hills.

Around five minutes before we reached our destination we cane across this designated viewpoint.



I wish I could tell you what this viewpoint is called and how we got there but I wasn’t taking notice of such things whilst taking in all of this natural beauty. The weather was overcast and most of these photos were taken around 8pm, I wanted to stay to watch the sun set but my friend was worried about driving up a ridiculously steep hill in an unfamiliar area in the dark so reason and responsibility won this time.

It’s been years since I’ve been to Wales so this was a lovely day out and next time I go I’ll be sure to take more photos.



Monthly roundup: First post after a hiatus

Hello, it happened again. Been very very quiet on the blog front but with very good reason this time. My nana died. In the short term, we kind of knew it was going to happen but no circumstance can prepare you for the loss of a loved one.

It’s been a long few months, from she went in hospital 22 march, to her passing 23 april to burying her 22may and then it felt as if she was forgotten straight away because the same night of her funeral the awful Manchester bombing happened.

So this monthly roundup post was supposed to happen like four months ago, it was supposed to be much more light-hearted and much more informative but my heart is heavy and I’m not ready to go into detail about personal things just yet.

My plan is to get back to blogging, back to #BlogsIRate (I’m gutted that I couldn’t keep that on time, I was doing so well!) and socialising with fellow bloggers on Twitter.

And I’m slowly but surely getting back to life. I could easily stay in bed all day and definitely need a holiday more than ever but neither of those things can happen right now so my only option is to push through.

See you soon with better, more engaging content x
