It’s almost the end of September already and I’ve yet to sit down and digest what has happened during August. But before September flies by, let me take a look at August highlights.
Husband Got a New Job
My husband tried and successfully got a new job. He doesn’t started until October but it did mean a bit of stress of having to move schools. Ah it’s a long story but all’s well that ends well.
National Trust Visits
Over bank holiday weekend the weather was pretty decent so we decided to make use of our National Trust cards. We took a trip to Penrhyn Castle and to Plas Newydd – both are within 20 minutes drive to us. I can’t believe that we haven’t visited them before now.
Another 20 minute drive from us is Pili Palas. I had a day off to spend with my Little Miss as she was on summer holidays. I’ve never been inside before. It was a great little day out. The butterflies were so beautiful and graceful.
New Sofa and IKEA Trip
I may have mentioned it before but we ordered a new sofa bed to put in the spare room downstairs. The reason we wanted a sofa bed is because my Nain has difficulty walking upstairs. So by putting a sofa bed downstairs she can come and stay again!
And because of the new sofa bed, we had to move the computer and desk back upstairs which of course mean a trip to IKEA to buy a new desk! I did a mini video of my IKEA trip. I love/hate IKEA because everything is so stylish and I want it ALL!!
A last minute decision at work saw us attend Sioe Môn. It turned out to be great on the whole but the weather forced us to pack up early on the second day. It did mean I got to browse the field and speak to some lovely stallholders including Marge and Mabel Handmade Dog Treats.
We were sent some Magic Tracks to review! They are sooo cool! Definietly something to put on the Christmas wishlist. There’s a review post coming up in the next week but in the meantime take a peek at the little video that’s over on my Facebook page.
Visiting My Friend
Husband and his family decided to paint our front room – it needed doing. So whilst that was going on I took the girls out to see my friend who lives near Bala. It was lovely to see her! I really need to go see her more often.
Infacare Baby Bath Time
Throughout August we’ve been using the Infacare Baby Bath Time. We were kindly given a sample bottle to try and we’ve loved it.
The lovely David (of DadVWorld fame) and beautiful wife have setup a fab new clothing brand – VBrandHQ! They kindly sent me a baggy tee which I love! Best package received to date!
So that was a pretty hectic August now that I think about it! As always, linking up with the lovely Stevie over at A Cornish Mum.
