Press Trip: Oakwood Theme Park

Yesterday we had the pleasure of visiting Oakwood, the largest theme park in Wales. It was a beautiful sunny day and blue skies for as far as you could see. As we live in Cardiff it was only about an hour and a half drive. Oakwood is set in the Pembrokeshire countryside and I couldn’t think of a more perfect setting for a theme park than in the countryside of Wales. Rolling green hills for miles around. I have been to Oakwood before about 10 years ago and experienced the thrills and spills of the rollercoaster. Sadly my experience of… [Read More]

Creating Memories With My-Picture.co.uk #AD Competition Win £50 Voucher

One of the things that I love to do is look at old photographs. They instantly re-create in my mind the memory of that special moment in which the photograph was taken.

So when I was recently approached by My-Picture.co.uk… [Read More]

Playgroups & Prosecco Book Review #gifted

I have to admit after becoming a dad to five children, reading a book was something that I could never find time to do. Thankfully three of my children have grown up so I now have a bit more time to do a few things for myself and that includes reading a book.

Playgroups & Prosecco is the story of a single mum called Frankie. Frankie has… [Read More]
