Fiction vs reality

Fiction vs reality

I’ve noticed something recently, and I’m not sure that it’s such a great thing. Basically, due to mass procrastination, I spend 90% of my time indoors. Because of this, I basically live in the fictional world. Whether that be through reading books, playing video games, watching movies, or spending 18 hours straight binge watching a tv show. This is the undeniable truth. But this ...[Read More]

Been a while…

Been a while…

I recently realised that I’ve been slightly neglecting this site without even realising. What used to be a hobby, has now become like an over-read book gathering dust on the bottom shelf. I think it’s now time to wipe off the dust and write another post. Which I am now vowing to do more often. In the last few months that I haven’t been writing, I’ve been busy doing nothing....[Read More]

Raising Awareness

Raising Awareness

Being a previous member of Whitchurch High School, it didn’t take long for the news that Peter Baldwin had passed away to spread around the school. I didn’t know him personally, but I knew of him. He died from undiagnosed type 1 diabetes at only age 13. The death of a loved one isn’t something people like to talk about, but I feel like in cases like these, it’s important to...[Read More]

Cardiff National History Museum

Cardiff National History Museum

I actually went to Cardiff National History Museum about 2 weeks ago and completely forgot that I was going to write this post. Better late than never I suppose… I have probably been to this museum over 100 times throughout my childhood. My mum always used to take me and my older sister there when we were younger. We hasn’t been in a while so I decided to take my younger sister. We wer...[Read More]

Kaspa’s Review

Kaspa’s Review

After we went to Ed’s Diner last week, we decided to go to Kaspa’s for dessert. If you have never been to Kaspa’s, it is basically just the best dessert place ever. I have only ever been there twice because I only discovered it recently, but it is literally the best. They have an allergy list of what you can eat if you have specific allergies. It’s great that they have so m...[Read More]

Ed’s Diner Review

Ed’s Diner Review

Last week, I went with my cousin and my younger sister, to Ed’s Diner. I have always wanted to go there, but it’s always really crowded and I had heard that it was really overpriced. My cousin had signed up to be a member and received a voucher for a free burger/hot dog, and wanted to use it. For those who have never been to or heard of Ed’s diner, it is a 1950s inspired American...[Read More]

Pride Cymru 2015

Pride Cymru 2015

After going to Pride Cymru last year and loving it, I decided to go again this year. Personally, I support all members of the LGBTQ+ community, because the way that I look at it, they are no different than anybody else. The unfortunate thing is that not everybody thinks this way. I get that everybody is entitled to their own opinion and all, but I will never understand people who discriminate agai...[Read More]

A Trip To Find A Puppy

A Trip To Find A Puppy

Last weekend we went to England, (which happens to be my favourite place), to go and look at some puppies. I just realised how that sounds. We went to go and look at puppies to decide if we wanted to get one or not. I’m still not sure if this is even making sense. Anyway, the weather was so nice and we booked a hotel, and went on a 3 and a half hour long car journey. The dogs we went to see ...[Read More]

What is Coeliac Disease?

What is Coeliac Disease?

Coeliac Disease As you might already know from another blog post I did where I briefly mentioned that I couldn’t eat certain things, I have coeliac disease. For those who don’t already know, coeliac is ‘a disease in which the small intestine is hypersensitive to gluten, leading to difficulty in digesting food.’ I wanted to make this post because coeliac is a very common con...[Read More]

Reasons I Why I Hate Mandatory Shopping

Reasons I Why I Hate Mandatory Shopping

I have my first shift at work tomorrow and so I had to go into town today to buy a pair of ‘proper work shoes’. (Left it a little bit late, I know). You know when you just have no motivation to do anything? That is exactly how I felt today, yet I got on a bus and went shoe shopping. The word shoe is such a strange word. Shoe. I found a pair eventually, but why do work shoes look so una...[Read More]

Swansea – July 2015

Swansea – July 2015

Last weekend, I went to my Uncle’s caravan in Swansea for the weekend. The Gower is such a beautiful place that I couldn’t resist taking lots of pictures. We didn’t get there until around 11pm on the first night so I literally just went to sleep. When it came to getting ready the next morning, I realised that I had severely over-packed. I probably had enough clothes for a week. W...[Read More]

A trip to Cardiff Bay

A trip to Cardiff Bay

It was 21 degrees on Saturday and I was sat in my house doing absolutely nothing and so I decided to go and do something. Being as all of my friends were busy or boring, I went by myself for a wander down to Cardiff Bay. I ended up taking a few pictures, so here they are.
