As you will know I have had a few days away with my darling hubby in Aberavon in South Wales to recharge our batteries.
We stayed in the Aberavon Beach Hotel and I have to say if I had seen it from the outside before booking I might not have booked cos it looked a bit like Colditz....Old and rather shabby..... but inside it was just perfect. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, the service was faultless and the decor was really lovely.....there was even a spare single bed in our room so we could have taken Twiglet with us :-)
We visited Saint Fagins National History Museum with all it's quaint little houses, shops and stores. It was a lot of walking but well worth the trip. Each little house had a lit open fire and really tiny little windows and oh how it made me appreciate modern electric lights...the tiny rooms all seemed so dark and gloomy to have spent their days in.
The Tailor and outfitters was just fab with all it's sewing machines and fabrics etc. How I would have loved to rummage through the fabrics and all the old clothes.
Inside the store was filled with many items that didn't seem so very long ago that we could see in the shops and even remembered buying many of the items. We saw many young children chuckling at the outside toilet and the old school etc.
Thursday evening we went to watch a 20 20 cricket match in Cardiff.....thankfully it stayed dry but it was a really cold evening. I really enjoy watching cricket so this was a real treat for us both regardless of the temperature.
Hope you have enjoyed my show and tell of our wonderful break away. I have got a few aches and pains from all the walking but really feel to have blown away the cobwebs. I now hope to start feeling rather more creative in the days to come. Thanks for dropping in.
