A Welsh Diary

Travelling back home to Wales happens less often than I’d like. Before last week, I hadn’t seen some of my closest family since Christmas, which is so long ago. Last weekend it was my mam’s 60th birthday, and I couldn’t wait to get back for the best part of a week.
6 days in Wales looked a bit like this…

Arriving to the biggest cwtch from my beautiful niece : being adorned with various pictures she’d made for my arrival : heart bursting joy to see my dogs and cats : realising how much kids grow up in just 8 months : covert banner making / covert picking up of the cake : late night streamer hanging & balloon blowing : Harry Potter cluedo games, “WELCOME TO HOGWARTS!”, and definitely no cheating : a birthday breakfast – including foam shrimps & bananas, a staple : a bucks fizz cork causing a crack in the ceiling : watching mam open her cards & presents – ‘surprise, we’re going on vacation’ : whisking mam off for afternoon tea : that banner hung up on the railings outside the village : a slight detour for the best chips & curry sauce in the universe {also my everyday diet in secondary school} : unwanted rain, does the sky know it’s August? : playing cards against humanity with mam….. : Penarth sea-glass collecting : sausage & chips on the sea front :
