A Sunny Bank Holiday Weekend In Wales.

Last weekend marked 8 years since me and Joss got together and we always try and mark it with something fun.

Why I Love Being Welsh | Happy St David's Day

For those folk amongst you who are not Welsh, you might not know that today is St David's Day. We celebrate our patron saint on March 1st every year with an Eisteddford and dressing up when you're in school and scoffing welsh cakes if you're not.

National Stationery Week 2016

I swear my posts are getting later and later this week but I have a whole schedule of posting every day that I really want to get through so booo you'll have to just have to have these as bedtime reading more than for your morning commute. 

But hey! Today marks the start of National Stationery Week which is a week I think the majority of us can DEFINITELY get on board with!
