Exploring Pontypridd Park

Even though the weather has been a bit hit and miss lately we have been making the most of those dry days (as well as puddle jumping on the wet ones) and during the week we thought we would venture to a Pontypridd museum, a place that is not that far away but we rarely visit and has a wonderful Hornby train display that Mr A likes. Once we came back outside the clouds had cleared and the sun was out so we headed to Pontypridd park and enjoyed lots of tree climbing, running around and pretending to be army men.


It's been one of those weeks that started out well but as the days passed I started to feel a little bit stressed for one reason or another but I find that spending time outdoors is the perfect remedy for that and puts things back in perspective. I always genuinely feel so much more refreshed and empowered after getting some fresh air.

Once we got home we threw caution to the wind and had our first BBQ of the year as eating al fresco is literally one of our most favourite things to do, so out popped the pink lemonade and salad, hummus, pitta and some veggie skewers and we enjoy a few hours warm afternoon hours before the clouds decided to reappear and pour down (luckily just as we finished eating)
