It's a pig's life

Summer holidays are hard work. In the past week or so we've been to Cardiff to spend our Disney vouchers and see a real live Darlek at the Doctor Who Exhibition, we've hunted dinosaurs at the Tenby Dinosaur Park, we've crafted, we've played vets and poorly ponies, we've made a holiday jar in the style of Pipany, we've been out for a barbecue, in for lunch and dinner with friends, we've gardened, we've torn our hair out over slug, wind and rain damage, we've eaten courgettes (well, just the one), cabbages and cucumbers galore.

Sometimes the sun has shone and we have poured out of the house onto the new lawn to lie on the cool grass, gaze up at the fluffy white clouds in the blue sky, bask in the warmth and just be.

Even the guinea pigs can't stay awake under those circumstances.


  1. Wow, it's sounds as though you've been seriously busy! I like the sound of the Tenby dinosaurs. I'm hoping the guinea pigs didn't accompany you though. I suspect guineas might be light snacks for veloceraptors.

  2. You will need a holiday to get over the holidays.

  3. Only ten days and they are back at school! And then you will be thinking of the next holiday.

    This is my first August away from Pembrokeshire in years - it feels odd. But then in the Alps today the sky was pure cobalt - how long since I have seen that?

    Hope all is well in Wales

  4. I love the way you can tell how much you enjoy your children and their company! Hope the rest of the holiday is just as good.
