Farmhouse Breakfast Hamper

Farmhouse Breakfast Week is organised to promote the benefits of eating a good breakfast each morning. Many of us go without breakfast on a regular basis, not realising the beneficial effects that having a decent breakfast can have. Breakfast benefits: A boost of much-needed energy to start the day off Studies show breakfast eaters are likely to be slimmer than people who go without. Many breakfast foods such as cereals and fruit, give you important nutrients like calcium and fibre. Restores glucose levels, which has shown to improve concentration meaning you’re more likely to be productive! And that’s exactly why […]

Farmhouse Breakfast Week

Everyone knows the saying, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. And you can certainly see why. Studies have shown that breakfast is a good source of energy, a great way to get the brain working in the morning, and even that breakfast eaters are less likely to be overweight. So why is it then, that so many go without breakfast on a regular basis? I myself, have been known to skip breakfast. Some mornings, it’s tough to get out of that warm duvet cocoon, so getting up early to have something to eat, can sometimes seem unappealing. […]

How to Celebrate Welsh Valentine’s

As some of you reading this may never have celebrated St. Dwynwen’s Day before, (or even heard of it before my last post!) you may be struggling for ideas on how to celebrate it. Essentially, you can just celebrate it exactly the same way in which you would celebrate Valentine’s Day. I’m sure Valentine’s cards have probably already arrived in shops, and of course boxes of chocolates are always available from the local supermarket. Whatever you do, I wouldn’t pick up a bouquet of flowers from the nearest petrol station. I shall be joining the troop of singletons who shall […]

Welsh Valentines

Or St. Dwynwen’s Day as we call it in Wales. Everyone knows that the 14th February is the day when couples around the world celebrate their love for the day widely known as Valentine’s Day. But not everybody knows that the Welsh have their very own Valentine’s Day, which falls on the 25th January each year. So what’s the story behind Welsh Valentines?   Back in the 5th Century, there was a Welsh king named Brychan Brycheiniog (try saying that one five times fast!) who had twenty-four daughters, of which Dwynwen was known to be the most beautiful. Being the […]

Plan for the Year

Going away to university made me realise just what we have here in Pembrokeshire. I used to think nothing of being able to see the beach from my back garden. It takes me less than two minutes to drive to my nearest beach. At university, I was more than an hour away from a beach and it was the weirdest feeling in the world. But what struck me as more odd, was how it was totally natural to almost everyone around me. Moving back here after graduation opened my eyes to see how incredibly lucky I am to have grown […]

Ahh January…

January can be taken one of two ways. Some find January to be the most miserable time of year, with the streets and shop windows looking awfully bare without a vast array of twinkly lights and smiling Santa’s. Some are tightening their money belts as they’ve been left with a good few pounds less than they’d budgeted for. Some force themselves to diet in an attempt to shed those extra few pounds which have somehow crept up on us – they must have been hiding in those Christmas jumpers and have decided to latch on to our warm, now rounding […]
