New Year Celebrations

Leave a comment

Christmas is done for another year, I can’t believe how quickly a time so magical can be here one minute and gone the next. Having said that, I hope that each and everyone of you that have spent this Christmas in Pembrokeshire have enjoyed your time and made the most of every moment you have had in our gorgeous County. The weather (not surprisingly) has been a bit of a roller coaster,  for me it’s when we get the naughty combination of the wind and the rain that becomes an obstacle for our daily walks. One or the other we […]

A Pembrokeshire Christmas

Leave a comment

Christmas Day can be as crazy busy or as calm and subdued as you like it. We are all different and therefore our experiences of Christmas are different too. For those of you that have chosen to spend the festive holidays in Pembrokeshire, you are sure to succumb to the County’s charm at this terrific time of the year. Although the winter air offers a cheeky little nip, for me there is such a comforting warmth about the Christmas holidays that seems to get cosier each year. I think that the great thing about Christmas and New Year is that […]

St Nicholas Christmas Market in Saundersfoot

Leave a comment

I love getting involved with all things festive and cheery and do not need any excuse to pop along to anything! This weekend between the 6th-8th December is Saundersfoot’s famous St Nicholas Christmas Market. Last year I was a little overwhelmed with a bundle of baby only a few weeks old so I didn’t feel at one with reality in time to show face, but he will be running around by my side this year admiring the Christmas scene, stalls and music so I’ll be there. It really is a wonderful market to visit with all the family, the lights […]

A Little Light Fun

Leave a comment

My little boy is absolutely smitten with all of the Christmas lights, trees and baubles everywhere, his eyes are wide and enthused in complete and utter amazement! This being the reason as to why yes, are Christmas decorations are up already. Last night we took him to see a bungalow that is dressed in an abundance of lights and decorations from top to toe, with all donations going to Paul Sartori, a Foundation who provide hospice care for residents throughout Pembrokeshire. As soon as the car pulled up his face was glowing! The array of beautiful lights, colours and decorations […]

A Wonderfully Wintry Spell

Leave a comment

With each season comes its own personality and I have come to realise that instead of wishing for warm in the winter and a cool breeze in the summer, we should embrace what is best about each and every season as and when we get the chance. Remembering that there are some places that don’t have the opportunity to experience a change in the season, I vow from here on in to appreciate that we do, even if we do sometimes have all four come in one day! Having said that, I am very much an autumn/winter baby at heart. […]

Places to Play for our Children are Priceless

Leave a comment

It’s true. To have places to go that are perfect for your children to play are priceless. As my little boy is now nearly one (where has this year gone!), we have attended plenty of play groups and classes over the many months and have therefore gained a solid network of friends, both for him and me. Throughout the Spring and Summer until October Half Term we have regularly met up at Folly Farm, mostly to enjoy the ease of walking around the park with a pleasant variation of animals as our backdrop as well as  making the most of […]

Fantastic Fireworks this Autumn in Pembrokeshire

And as soon as Halloween passes a new dawn arrives in the red hot form of Bonfire Night. Bonfire Night is one of my favourites, though to be honest I am always looking for any reason to celebrate in style!

Take a look through the following displays to see which is the best venue for you. The Rotary Club of Tenby present their popular display on Friday 1st November this year, held at Tenby United Rugby […]
