Not joined in with this linky before but today this is a photo I took. It’s hubby in A&E. 

He’s ok now but he’s got a chest infection and had rapid heartbeat so the paramedics wanted him to go to hospital. 

But honestly, all I can do is thank the NHS staff. They’re brilliant and we don’t appreciate them enough.

Weekend Moments with This Little Big Life

This Little Big Life – Celebrating the Weekend Moments

It’s time for another This Little Big Life post where we celebrate the weekend moments. I’ve been rather quiet on the blog of late which has been due to being ill. We’ve all had a bug and a cold so evenings have been spent going to bed early. The weekends are the only time we get now so here’s how we spent last weekend. As ever skip the video for the photos….


On Saturday we went to The Grill at the Royal Oak for a birthday meal with hubby’s family. The food was really nice! Would definitely recommend it. I had a message from an old friend from London saying that he was in Llandudno later that afternoon.

Food at the Royal Oak

So we went to Llandudno but stopped by Surf Snowdonia to have a nosey. It looks like such fun! It’s incredible what they’ve done with the place. I remember the aluminium works that were there previously. Such a transformation! And I am glad that something has been done with the place!

Surf Snowdonia & Caer Rhun Hall

From there we headed towards Llandudno and we had heard there was a Pokemon meetup in Happy Valley. Yes, I am a Pokemon Go player and I have no shame! There was a large crowd of people at Happy Valley and it was great! Everyone was just mingling and you had all sorts there – young kids through to pensioners all playing.  Every so often someone would shout something and the crowd would all move… I believe the excitement came when an Onix was spotted. Haha great time!

Happy Valley & Llandudno Pier

On the way back to the car we walked along the pier. It was rather late in the day so all the shops were closing up but I’m rather surprised that we’ve never spent time there with the girls. I remember many a happy days there as a child.


On the way back home on Saturday we drove through Conwy and found that there were so many Pokestops that we decided to have a day out on Sunday. As Cadw members we can access the Castle for free. Unfortunately we couldn’t find the cards but the lovely lady at the desk let us in anyway!

Exploring Conwy Castle

We spent a couple of hours wandering around the Castle. I took so many photos and I’ll post another Photo Days post with them all. Little Miss walked around the castle looking for Meic Y Marchog (Mike The Knight) and at one point I caught her phoning Ryder to ask the Paw Patrol to help find him! Ahh the innocence of little minds.

Smallest House In Britain

After the Castle we walked down to the front and saw the outside of the Smallest House in Greta We didn’t go in but we might go next time.

How was your weekend?

Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday

It’s time for another Friday Frivolity linky party! This week the hosts’ topic is Letter Writing!

Letter Writing

I have previously mentioned that I used to have a lot of penpals. Recently I’ve joined a Facebook penpal group. It’s really lovely to receive happy mail rather than bills all the time!

I fully intended on sharing some of my letter writing resources because I’m completely in love with pretty stationery but alas this week has been a bit of a write off <- HA get the pun!!

30 Days of Gratitude

Aurélie from Bump And Blush is hosting a 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge for September! And I’m joining in! If you haven’t seen if the I would suggest you check out Aurélie’s post. As an overview, you write down (or blog) about certain things your grateful for. Aurélie has set a different theme for everyday of this coming month.

Day 1 – Our House

Day 1 of the challenge is to be grateful for your house.

I am so grateful for our house. As much as I would like to change various things – such as a new bathroom, replace the kitchen, and doing a loft conversion, I am very grateful that I have a house at all. I know that there are so many people who don’t have a house.

Our house may not always be tidy but when you have kiddiwinks there isn’t much you can do about the mess! I still think we should get a cleaner though.

Above I have shared a photo of our living room. It’s a big living room especially now that the DVD cabinets are in the spare room. I love the colours – lime green is always a favourite! The windows are nice and big and bring in a lot of light. I do believe the corner sofa is a bit too big! I would love a new sofa but we won’t be replacing this one for a few years yet. Not until the girls have finished writing all over it at least!
