Have fun looking around 🙂

Chun castle and Chun Quoit

An Iron Age hillfort and bronze age stone monument

Don’t even bother going looking for these without a sturdy vehicle! If it’s muddy, you’ll need a four wheel drive for sure. But, as I mentioned in the bit about Trereen Dinas, this is a great place for a walking holiday, so that’s probably the best way to go!

We tried a few tiny roads – and I mean Tiny – the sides of our campervan enjoyed the tickling of many roadside brambles on both sides. Eventually we found a road leading to a farm where parked but there were no sign posts from there. So we picked a path to the right and walked for an hour and a half up a hill. My advice: Don’t Go This Way!!!! The path got smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller. And smaller. It had been a hot day and we were all in short skirts (apart from Chris (who was in a long one!)) and my legs got scrathced to pieces. Poor Jude was in sandals (and ended up being carried for much of the way). We waded through gorse, brambles, head-height bracken and even stingng nettles at some points. We kept thinking We’ve gone this far, it can’t be much further. Because of the steep slope to the left of us, we could never see more than a few metres in front of us and had no idea how much further it was. Eventually Chris went up ahead to the top of the hill and he still couldn’t see it. So we turned round and went back down again. I kept saying to myself, At least it’s not raining!

At the bottom we noticed a big rock painted white and a path leadng directly up over the hill. God knows why we didn’t notice this before! My advice – try that way if you’re going! It was getting dark by now and we still hadn’t found anywhere to camp overnight, and the kids were tired so we didn’t try again. So Chun Castle and Chun Quoit didn’t get a tick off out list!

Independent Fashion Focus – an alternative to Bristol Fashion Week
October 11, 2016
Every single thing I go to lately seems to have the advertised start time about three-quarters of an hour before it actually starts. It’s as if they know I’m coming and in anticipation of my lateness, give the wrong time. The problem is, I have been dead on time for a change! So; not having the courage to speak to strangers already chatting to each other, after spending as long as I politely could browsing the clothes rails at To The Moon, I walked up and down the road for while and moved my car to a less dodgy parking space until the first person was due to speak, according to the piece of paper sellotaped to the wall. I perched on a stool at the back of the room with my notebook at the ready, interested to hear what they had to say about ethical and sustainable fashion….
A guide for how to survive Orlando theme parks – Disney World & Universal Studios
August 6, 2016
I’ll be honest, six years ago I’d never even contemplated an Orlando holiday – it just wasn’t something that interested me. We’d done a couple of trips to Disney Land and Universal Studios in California, and that was enough for me. But then they went and built Harry Potter World! That pretty much changed everything, and suddenly we were booking ourselves two weeks in Florida. Four years later we went again with Chris’s family; and last week we ended up there again for the last four days of our road-trip holiday. There’s something so magical and wonderful about those theme parks that is difficult to describe to someone who’s never been. I don’t know what preconceptions I’d had before; whether I was being a bit snobby about it; but I had not expected it to love it there as much as I do! If you’ve never been before and are going this summer, or planning next year’s holiday, then I hope you’ll find this little guide to Orlando useful. Even if you’re not, I hope you find it interesting! ….
The Oxford Thames Four Pillars Hotel
June 9, 2016
I’ve come to the conclusion that I have too much stuff (“At last!” my Mum will be saying!) so when Chris asked what I wanted for Christmas and birthday, I suggested a day out somewhere instead of a present. He went a step further and suggested a break in a nice hotel. “Sounds lovely,” I said. “I’d like to go back to Oxford.” This particular hotel was ideal because I like old buildings, and the main entrance and lounge bit is medieval. I also needed somewhere to park (you’d be surprised how many in the city centre don’t have parking), and a swimming pool. This one is about three miles from Oxford, but it’s also on the river with the Thames Path running along-side (albeit the other side, so you need to back track a bit to the bridge) so you can walk in if you wish….
3 days in Oxford – Day 1. The story of the photographs
September 16, 2016
I was so excited about this little mini-break to Oxford. I love my family to bits, but sometimes it’s nice to be alone and have a little headspace all to yourself! I also find it difficult to relax at home because there’s always so much to do there. I don’t think it helps that I work from home either, so no matter if it’s the evening or weekend, I still always feel I should either be working or doing something towards fixing the house. I was also a little bit nervous because I’m not great at driving and get flustered easily, but the journey was good; I didn’t get lost once and made it to the park and ride with no problems following the sat nav!….
