Albert Dock

My nephews came to stay for a couple of days last week so we visited the Albert Dock and Liverpool Maritime Museum on Friday.

I love the architecture around the Albert Dock - the steel structures, old brickwork, the quirky angles of the buildings - the perfect place for me to have a play with my new camera!

Sian loves spending time with her cousins - they run, play and chatter all day (and night!!!) The noise level reminds me why we made the decision to only have 1 child LOL!

Day out

We had a lovely day out in Wales yesterday. We started off with a brisk walk at Llanfairfechan (it was FREEZING!), lunch at the cafe on the seafront, feeding the ducks and swans in the park and then a short walk on the beach.

After this we drove to Llanberis where MIL and FIL have a house that is currently undergoing renovation - not much progress seems to have happened lately :( We then went for a walk near the lake, Sian and I went to the Museum while DH, MIL and FIL went for a further walk.

After the museum we joined DH for another short walk to the Blue Lady Lake (part of the old quarry) where we spend some time watching bubbles in the lake being created by 2 Divers. After a short while we watched them emerging - Sian was absolutely fascinated as the bubbles grew larger. The lake is 60ft deep so it was a while before we could make out the shape of the divers.

Sian was delighted when the Divers let her try on their face masks and then posed for a photo with her.

The day was rounded off by a drive home through Betws-y-Coed and a pub. The perfect end to a lovely day :)

Birthday Blooms

These are just some of the gorgeous flowers I had for my birthday on Thursday. DH spoilt me with the most amazing bouquet, MIL brought me some Tulips and Sian gave me some Daffodils (no picture)
I adore flowers and would love to be able to fill the house with them every week - maybe one day LOL

Furry friend

Last weekend we eventually caved in and bought Sian her much longed for Hamster. She was so thrilled in the thought that she was now big enough to have a pet of her own to look after.

Hours were spend browsing various shops to find jus the right cage where the hanster would be happy, safe and have fun. Toys, bedding, sawdust and food were purchased - and eventually the perfect hamster was chosen.

Say hello to 'Toffee'. Sorry for the awful photo's but it's a nigthmare trying to get a shot of it :(
