The Welsh Cheese Company subscription box | Review

The Welsh Cheese Company Clwb Caws

Cheese. That’s all somebody has to say to me, and I’m there. Add subscription box to that, and I’m all heck yeah, give me ALL the cheese! I’ve always been a great cheese lover and if there is ever a cheese board on a menu, that’s what I’m having. So when I was offered the chance to try out the Clwb Caws subscription from The Welsh Cheese Company, I grabbed it with both hands (quite literally, when it arrived!).

A subscription to Clwb Caws is the perfect way to ensure you have a regular supply of the very best Welsh cheese. Every month we hand pick four of our favourite cheeses, package them up and post them out to arrive with you on the second Wednesday of the month. The quartet of cheeses will always be varied and well balanced, and will weigh around 800g in total. Read more

Our 2018 summer bucket list

Summer bucket list

You may have seen the cheesy meme going around recently; you know the one, where we only get 18 precious summers with our children so we must make the most of them. That’s all well and good, and to an extent I agree. But sometimes, just sometimes; we may have had enough, want a break, want to pull our hair out; just want them back at school! And that’s fine, too.

I’m not going to lie, I really struggled with them last summer. We were going through a really difficult time with Jacob and his behavioural issues, which made it hard for me mentally, wanting to take them both out on my own all of the time. Other than going away during the last week of summer, I’m going to admit that we probably had quite a boring six weeks. That’s why this year, we’ve made a bucket list! Read more

Giving Your Garden A Worthwhile Upgrade

There’s a lot you can do in the garden to make it a more functional area; you can plant plenty of seeds, and split the beds up into a fruits and veg section, and then have a section for the flowers to go to make sure they trail along the path properly. You can also turn the entire space into a jungle, with plenty of overgrown trees and creeper plants, and a rock garden and pond to finish it all off. Either way, everyone has their own outdoor style, and you can do whatever you want with your garden to make sure it’s a paradise of your own making! Read more

My top home security tips

Lock. key. top home security tips

When we lived in our previous three homes we were very hot on making sure our home was secure, as we lived on an estate notorious for crime. We even used to lock the door when we were inside, just in case. I absolutely hated our rooms facing onto the road or path, for people to see what we had; call me paranoid, but it was to be expected! Since we’ve moved to our forever home in a quiet rural village we have been a lot more relaxed. After a few attempted break ins a few months ago though, I realised we needed to step our home security up a little.  Read more
