Me and Mine: February 2015

Our little break away in Wales over half term was a welcome break from the norm. It was a chance to escape the household chores, the daily routine and the clutter of Christmas and birthday gifts that have yet to find homes. It was time to spend lazy mornings and late evenings with my husband and Little Mr exploring somewhere new.

We loved exploring two difference beaches in South Wales; Llanelli and Trecco Bay. Little Mr loves putting his wellies on and jumping in puddles so I couldn’t wait to see him explore the beach with rockpools, shells and seaweed to discover.

It was sunny but very cold. We were wrapped up warm against the elements with hats, scarves and big coats to keep the chill out. We loved the beach and can’t wait to spend more time there over the next year or so.

    It really was freezing in Wales last weekend wasn’t it! After we’d walked down the pier at Mumbles we didn’t last long on the beach at all, poor Amy was SO miserable.

      It was so cold but lovely at the same time. I don’t think we could have stayed there had it of been raining but with the sunshine it was lovely x

    Lovely pic! Great that you got to the beach. I’m a Midlands girl like you, and although it’s in the centre of the country, it still takes ages to get to any beaches, doesn’t it!?

    A great spot for a family photo. It sounds like you had a nice break. We still need to find a home for all of the Christmas gifts! x

    Sounds like you all had SUCH a lovely break! We’re off to Wales next week and I cannot wait. The British Isles is so beautiful — we’re lucky to live in such an amazing part of the word aren’t we? x #MeandMine
