Beach clean adventures in Abersoch

Beach clean adventures in Abersoch

Last Saturday, while the rest of the UK was covered in cloud and experiencing yet another dull day of drizzle, the sun seemed to shine in just one single spot … Abersoch. And wasn't that handy as that’s exactly where we were, hanging out with Joules and the Marine Conservation Society, and lending a helping hand to collect litter and protect the great British coastline.

So, the time has come. For a break. Yes, this is my last post for 2018. And it’s also my last post before I start something new. When I started this blog back in 2014, it was without much of a plan or an intended direction. It was simply a way to keep writing, to keep learning, and to keep my brain ticking over until the boys started school and I could possibly think about returning to work.

Mother's Day the Joules way

Mother's Day the Joules way

Normally, when writing, I sit at my laptop with a hint of an idea and see where it takes me. I have a start and sometimes an anecdote or two, but it's rare that I have a middle or an ending in mind.

Today, I have so much to tell you about my Mother's Day trip to Watergate Bay Hotel in Cornwall with Joules, and my final sentence is definitely going to be along the lines of it being an incredible experience and how lucky I feel to have been invited, that I don't really know where to start.

It's hard to put what an amazing time we had in to words.

But I need to.
