Our Family Holiday at Bluestone Wales - Part 2

The Ramsey lodge has a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, both have ensuites. The twin room has a wet room while the double has a shower over the bath. Both bedrooms have lovely dark heavy wood furniture, you know the furniture that is built to last. In fact upstairs the dining table is the same and my toddler couldn’t move the chairs at all.

Our Family Holiday at Bluestone Wales – Part 1

A couple of weeks ago we headed off to Bluestone Wales. A National Park Resort in the beautiful countryside of Pembrokeshire. Becoming a blogger over three years ago, has given us many opportunities and when we were invited over to Bluestone it was our most exciting yet.

Our Family Holiday at Bluestone Wales

We were due to arrive at Bluestone on the Monday after a fun busy weekend that started off at 3 am on the Saturday morning. You see we were heading up to Derbyshire to see Mr B’s Nan who is 102 and wanted to take her out for lunch, so an early start from Cornwall was needed! On the Sunday morning we drove across the Peak District to Manchester for BlogOn. We knew the hardest part of the drive would be from Manchester to Bluestone so we were up early again on Monday morning.

Facts You May Not Know About the Rodents in Your Home

The common rodent is a hardy little guy and he can live in just about any environment, yet more often than not, the mouse or rat will set up home in your home. Why? Well, there’s an abundance of food on tap and it is clean and dry. They are masters at discretion and it is only the tell-tale signs of mice droppings that make you aware of their existence. You might be a “live and let live” kind of person and think that sharing your home with a few rodents is not an issue, but when you consider that they are carriers of disease, that changes everything. Rodents in your home is not a nice subject to discuss, but you do need to be aware with the colder weather ahead.

Capturing Holiday Memories With Tesco Photo On Canvas

Going away to Bluestone a couple of weeks ago was our first holiday as a family of four. So I’ve been going through our photos and finding the best ones to capture onto a canvas. Capturing holiday memories is important to me as our girls are growing away so fast, and I want to treasure every precious moment. Tesco Photo invited me to try out their online service to get canvases of our holiday.

Capturing Holiday Memories With Tesco Photo On Canvas

Using Tesco Photo online was easy, it was choosing which photos to use was the hardest! I went for a template canvas print and a retro style canvas print.
