I love to go on weekends away!
Last Weekend, I went to Swansea in Wales with my boyfriend – Rhys for his grandad’s 90th birthday!
Rhys drove which was a lifesaver! Driving for almost 4 hours isn’t my thing – at all! I mean we did have a few stops off, which was better, to give us a rest. However, we did get stuck in some traffic on the way there, as there was a crash on the motorway, but it wasn’t for too long, so then we went back on our way again.
We obviously had a McDonalds breakfast to start the day, and on stop offs had some coffee, which was needed, as we were up since 6:30 !
The drive was quite easy really, no other problems, so we went on our way.
Once we got into Wales, there was nothing that crossed our mind more – than having our first Joe’s of the trip. If you’ve never had a Joe’s Ice Cream, you’re missing out! It’s a completely different revelation. You pick which toppings you want and everything, but you need to get the original, the taste just cannot be described, it’s irresistable!
So yummy!! The best thing was, it was right next to our hotel! Amazing news!!
After this, we went to visit his grandad for a while, before heading back to the hotel to check in and get ready!
Getting ready for the night
Jumpsuit – IntheStyle
Why is it that it takes guys literally like 15 minutes to get ready, and it takes girls about 2 hours?
However, this time I was on a time scale – an hour to get ready with eyeshadows and lashes – the works. It’s safe to say I didn’t curl my hair but I didn’t scrub up too badly!
The Jumpsuit I got was from IntheStyle about 3 years ago, I got it for my 21st – but I’ve literally wore it twice and I love it! I have getting rid of clothes I’ve barely worn, I find it such a waste, and it’s so comfy!
As I’m getting ready, Rhys walks out the hotel for a walk, and comes back with yet another Joe’s Ice Cream, I’m not complaining!
It was such a lovely night, it was such a lovely pub, (The Shepherds Inn – Felindre) so homely, the staff were all wonderful, and the food was amazing – the portions could feed a whole family though! I ordered the Nachos for Starter and the Lasagne and Garlic Bread for mains, but there was so much garlic bread!
We also went back the next day for Sunday Lunch which was beautiful!
It was overall such a lovely trip; there was only one fault – The hotel!
6 am on a Sunday morning, after being tired from the night before, I wake up to this horrible screeching noise, and turn to Rhys who is up and currently putting clothes on – The fire alarm is going off, I have to put my big Borg coat on, and shove on some heels!
At 6am in the morning, I’m not messing around with Converse, especially not for a fire!! (Or so I thought)
So we walk out the hotel anyway – with me looking like a god knows what – as it looks like I’m barely wearing anything with short pyjamas on, over the road to a brewers fayre, where everyone is getting tea and coffee!
A guy then comes in, and makes a joke about his wife/girlfriend “farting” – as we were told it’s a gas leak in the hotel (which I was absolutely fuming about when we were asleep) ￼which has us all in stitches, – well atleast until I then start bawling my eyes out, as I’m overly tired, – and then Rhys has the audacity to call me a Drama Queen – I mean me – get it right hun – I’m a princess!
We finally get let back in the room, at 6:20, to have a small nap before Rhys’ alarm goes off at 7:30 for the Rugby! – Oh the joys of having no sleep! (The good thing was, we got our money back for not having a good nights sleep)
We then watch the rugby, have Sunday lunch, and have one final Joe’s before setting off home!
I can’t wait for our return again, and for more weekends away!
Where do you like going for Weekends Away?
