This Little Big Life – Father’s Day Weekend

This Little Big Life

Another weekend is over with and whilst that is a bit sad at least I enjoy my work. But before I go back to work tomorrow let me fill you in on our little weekend life. As ever skip the vlog if you prefer to read about it…


We ended up going out to Llandudno for the day. I think the main reason for this was because we had received £20 of Love2Shop vouchers and decided we HAD to buy Deadpool! Our closest HMV is Llandudno since they closed the Bangor store.


We had lunch in Debenhams where we all had cake and MissMostyn made a hell of a mess…. I always try to pick up what I can but unless I have a dustpan and brush then I can’t pick it all up.

On the way back from HMV I stopped in The Works (I do love this shop!) to have a browse and ended up buying some writing paper. Now if I had known that my Bullet Journal was going to fall apart later that day then I would have bought some wash tape to fix it with but alas hindsight is a great thing.

We stopped by Acme Games (hubby’s mecca at the moment) and I had a look through their impressive Pop Vinyls collection. I was tempted by Wall E and Dumbo but decided against it. In the retro games shop around the corner there was a Murloc Pop but we didn’t have cash to buy it.


After getting back to the car we went home via the scenic route of Betws Y Coed, Nant Gwynant and Beddgelert. The great thing with going this route is that you get to see Snowdon from every angle. It was a beautiful day and we got to pass Llyn Gwynant where they filmed some of the Tomb Raider film.

Bullet Journal Disaster

We decided to have a Chinese takeaway for supper because our fridge was rather empty so whilst waiting for it I decided to compile my shopping list in my Bullet Journal…. which then promptly fell apart!


Father's Day Cards

It was Father’s Day here in the UK (but I believe it’s the same day worldwide?). The girls had made Father’s Day cards at nursery – but apparently they don’t do this in schools? Don’t get me started on this subject!

The Mulberry

We went out for a meal with hubby’s parents. We went to The Mulberry in Conwy Marina. The food was nice enough but there wasn’t enough gravy for my liking. Also it could have done with more veg – in fact my husband had to actually ask for more potatoes since he only had 2 roasties on his and everyone else had a couple of new potatoes on their plates as well. I had the beef dinner and I must admit the beef was lovely.

The Mulberry

The rain caught up with us and so hubby’s plan to mow the lawn fell flat. After getting home we debated over staying in the car for a bit and having a snooze because both girls were asleep. But the rain was so heavy we decided to go in and have a snooze on the sofa.

We put the Formula 1 on – first race in Azerbaijan! Hubby slept through it and I slept for most of it – we were just so tired. I did see a couple of laps and it looks like an amazing track! Street circuit around the old castle in Baku. I had never considered Azerbaijan a country I’d like to visit but it’s now on my radar.

To finish the weekend I phoned my Dad because I couldn’t go to see him since he was working all weekend. Haven’t spoken to him in a while so it was good to catch up.

How was your weekend?

    What a great day! Don’t worry, you didn’t miss a lot, the track is stunning, the race not so much. I was impressed with Baku and Azerbaijan, I hope they will keep it in the calendar.
