Yesterday I had I lovely relaxing afternoon with my girl friends at the Vale Resort, having afternoon tea. We had the new summer afternoon tea menu, which works out at £35 for two.
Last week I was invited back, with Johny to FeD Cardiff to try their new chef special menu.
If you don’t know who Fed are they are a ‘Food Exploration Destination‘. A restaurant were you can have dishes from a wide range of cuisines including; Chinese, Italian, Indian, Japanese, Tex-Mex and Grill.
What a year, It’s had up’s and downs but I got through it. I had some lovely adventures with my blogging friends, including Bluestone and a trip to London. I also got to visit some amazing places with Johny, such as St David’s cathedral, Carew’s Castle and the Isle of Wight. I faced a fear – holding a snake. I bought a car and past my driving test. Both Johny and I had surgery on the same day. I started the Access to Healthcare course. I got a new job. But most importantly spent loads of time with my family. Here’s just some of my pictures from 2016.
I have one pet, a cat and her name is Cleo. She has black fur with grey flecks going through her chest and paws. We had her from a kitten about 8 years ago, when a lady who we used to get eggs from was moving back to Ireland. Her cat had two kittens a grey sort of tabby and a black one. When my parents told us about them, my sisters and I decided we would like the grey one and we were going to call it Fleur. What I didn’t know was apparently my dad had said to my mum we could get both. We went as a family to have a look at them, however when we got there another family had already been and taken the grey one, so we were left with the other. When I saw her though, I fell in love – she was gorgeous. We decided to name her Cleo Fleur. When we got her home she was so timid and quiet. It took her a while to get used to the house and we had to keep her in certain rooms to begin with as she hadn’t had all her injections.
During mine and the girls stay at Bluestone we decided to have a little adventure to Folly Farm. Well it wasn’t little, it was actually quite big. Also it was more like a Zoo than a farm. Yes you heard me, Folly Farm has got Zoo animals! Thinking back to when I used to visit when I was young, there was a few sheep, goats, pigs, cows and a horse. The girls and I were so excited and wanted to see what it was like for 5 young adults, in what used to be our childhood day trip.
This week I have been to work, had a little holiday with the girls in Bluestone and spent time blogging out in the garden with the cat.
Over Valentine’s weekend Johny very kindly surprised me with a weekend away. We traveled around Pembrokeshire and visited lots of beautiful places including castles and folly farm. Here are some of the pictures from our adventure.
