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 are so pretty and the view of the town looks amazing.
On each of the three days the market opens at 10am, on Friday night at 6.30pm the Christmas lights will be switched on by Father Christmas and you can enjoy a later evening on Saturday with everything open until 8pm.
The Music Box is the entertainment section of the marquee giving local musicians the opportunity to showcase their talents and in the Kitchen Corner [...]Read More »
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 were stunning. We were invited to walk beside the bungalow and around to the back garden where there was a continuation of bright, beaming festive delights.
The gentleman who’s hard work ensured that this is the marvel it is, said that it had taken him months to prepare for the launch last Sunday. I really am not surprised as the display is fantastic and oozes all things Christmas and [...]Read More »

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. I absolutely love the sharp blue skies, bitter mornings and crisp wintry air that graces us in the later months. There is nothing more fulfilling to me than opening the door to a chilly bite and a blanket of white frost whilst wrapped up in your gloves, snood and ugg boots ready to take in the cleansed, fresh air.
For Flynn (my boy with fur and four legs), this time of year is best for him too.
Although there are many beaches that remain open [...]Read More »
