  • A Weekend to remember in Hobbiton....

    Fancy a weekend away with a difference? Somewhere secluded and magical? We only live 40 minutes away from this mystical place, the journey consists of windy roads, sharp bends and hazardous turns. We had our fair share of reversing and braking and narrowly scraping past other cars by pulling into ditches and bushes.....But believe me it is worth it when you arrive and encounter a fairy-tale inspired arch that really does transcend you to a magical place. A long, steep path through woodland takes you to a clearing at the bottom, where you are greeted by the very attentive owner, Eric. He gave us a guided tour of the 'village' and would entertain us in the evening with folk tales and songs! Revived and Refreshed We spent the majority of our relaxing stay gathered either in the thatched Celtic roundhouse or sat outside around the campfire. I don't think you realise how tired you are until you experience total relaxation. Your heart and your breath calms and a peaceful feeling washes over you in waves. You will be taken back to basics for the weekend, which is so different from modern life and you can truly enjoy your environment. My eldest daughter did not check her mobile for the entire stay (parents of teenagers will understand the feelings of accomplishment and joy this evokes). The rustic houses are made from straw bales, cedar logs, cob, stone, thatch, turf, timber and hempcrete. They are quirky and cosy. The children were very excited about the accommodation. There is a hot tub, which my husband helped get ready for the evening. It is fire heated, so it need to be stirred every 40 minutes! The scene was comparable to a witch stirring her cauldron. Slow down and refresh I woke up to the sound of a running stream and bird song. The kids had crept out earlier and were outside playing on the rope swing. It was the perfect way to wake up. We had coffee outside on a bench overlooking the stream and under the watchful eye of the mystical woman in the tree. Fresh Air and Activity Surrounded by nature, we spent the day exploring the woods. We followed the stream, crossed the rail track and were greeted by the beautiful Llyn Padarn. This really is an enchanting place surrounded by the natural beauty of Wales. Remove yourselves from all the noise and distraction-instead enjoy the quiet and the solitude for just one weekend.

  • Penmon Light House & Puffin Island

    Do I really need to describe the beauty of this place? I think this picture says it all..... Penmon Lighthouse, also known as Trwyn Du marks the passage between Black Point and Puffin Island (Ynys Seriol). The Lighthouse bears the inscription NO PASSAGE LANDWARD. The views are stunning, you can see Snowdonia mountain range and the Great Orme, Llandudno. The children enjoyed searching for crabs in the rock pools and were glad they got to visit the Lighthouse from 'the beginning of I'm a Celebrity get me out of here!' There is a charge at the toll road of £3.00, but it is well worth the money. We were going to get an ice-cream at the cafe, but the queue was long and the kids were tired from all the playing and sea air..... The drive is beautiful along the coast road, through the picturesque town of Beaumeris, with a charming view of Beaumeris Castle. This is a great day out with the kids, we spent approximately 2 hours taking in the views and playing on the beach, if you are travelling, then pairing this visit with Beaumeris town and the castle would make a fun packed trip. #Penmonlighthouse #Trwyndu #puffinisland #greatorme #familydaysout #daysoutanglesey #imacelebritygetmeoutofhere2020 #imacelebrity #thingstodoinwales #outandaboutinwales #familyfun #picnicplaces #walking #talking #familytime #fundaysout #Beaumeris #Beaumeriscastle #penmon #lighthouses #views #landscapes #fun #hiking #rambling #blackpoint #ynysseriol #famousplacesinwales #beautiful #stunningviews

  • Garden Day 2021

    Relax and enjoy your garden. Outside space is more essential than ever. I know I am not alone, in discovering a love for gardening and your own personal garden area over the past 12 months. During the first lockdown, I would creep out of bed early before any of the kids were awake. I would sneak past their rooms to the kitchen, put the coffee machine on, then sit in the garden alone just listening to the sound of the birds and slowly sipping my coffee. I knew this would be the only time to myself until bedtime! It was ‘Garden Day’ on Sunday, where we were encouraged, rather than the usual weeding, digging and planting, to instead sit back, relax and take in the beauty of your hard work. So remember even though (fingers crossed) the lockdowns will be over soon, do not forget the calming effects gardening evoked in you, or the nurturing and peaceful feeling of tending to your plants. #gardener #gardening #garden #gardenday #gardenday2021 #gardenlife #flowers #plants #nature #gardens #NorthWales #wellbeing #relaxation #picnicblanket #champagne #reading #books #metime #outside #outsidespace #outdoors #coffee #beauty #lockdown #calming #stressfree #enjoylife

St David’s Hospice is a local charity providing hospice care to adult patients across Conwy, Gwynedd and Anglesey. They deliver free, high-quality, specialist palliative care to patients with life limiting illnesses, their family and carers. About Hospice Care Hospice care changes lives, offering quality care, dignity and compassion for people facing the end of their life. Every year, UK hospices provide expert care and support to around 360,000 people, including adults and children with life-limiting or terminal conditions and their friends and families. This care and support is based on the belief that everyone matters all the way through their life until the moment they die, and that no one should die in avoidable pain, suffering or emotional distress. ​ What is Hospice Care? ​ Hospice care improves the lives of people who have a life-limiting or terminal illness. It helps them to live as actively as they can to the end of their lives, however long that may be. It not only takes care of people’s physical needs, but looks after their emotional, spiritual and social needs as well. Hospice care also supports carers, family members and close friends, both during a person’s illness and during bereavement. You may also hear it called palliative care. Hospice care providers offer a range of services, which may include the following: pain and symptom control; psychological and social support; rehabilitation – helping patients to stay independent and continue to live their lives as they have done before; complementary therapies, such as massage and aromatherapy; spiritual care; family care; practical and financial advice; bereavement care.
