Thursday 28th May
Believe it or not, pretty much the whole day was spent packing and preparing! Although the weather forecast was promising, I know it can’t always be relied upon, so I was trying to plan for all eventualities.. without overdoing it.
We set off about 9:30, and drove down in lovely weather. 🙂 Unfortunately the traffic was rather rubbish, plus hubby got us lost for a short time, so we didn’t arrive until about 5. We unloaded the car, then Glen and I drove back to Carmarthen, to do some shopping. A long day, but happy to be there.
I woke in the morning, looked out the window, and saw some baby rabbits – how cute!
After a trip into Carmarthen, we spent some time with my grandparents – still amazed by the wonderful weather.
A trip into Ferryside, where we had a lovely Sunday lunch, then played on the beach for a while. Whilst waiting for lunch, the girls made friends with 2 rather cute dogs in the pub garden.
Monday 1st June
Whilst mum had a quiet day, Glen and I took the girls to Saundersfoot. Smothered in sun cream, I was still worried about us all getting burnt – it was that hot! Amy loves digging in the sand, and they both had a great time playing in the water. 🙂
Today was our trip to Folly Farm – this is somewhere we’ve been visiting for years, and it gets better every time we go. They have various animal areas, outdoor play, indoor play, and an old fashioned fun fair. Usually we need the indoor areas to escape from the rain, but for once it was the sun we were escaping from! Highlight of the day for me were the meerkats who came creeping up begging when they realised I had ice cream! 🙂
Our second trip to Carmarthen, and then my grandparents – it’s been lovely to see them, but always sad to walk away. During the early evening, Glen and I took the girls to the local beach – they collected shells, and I relaxed! 😀
A nice relaxed day – a further trip to Ferryside, then organising the packing etc
Our journey home.. and for the first time we saw clouds and rain!
I know it doesn’t sound like a particularly exciting week, but it was very relaxing, the weather was unbelievably wonderful, and I spent time with my grandparents. 🙂
