So there I am thinking I am going to enjoy the Easter weekend off from work and get stuck in to some nice relaxing painting and decorating and maybe even clean the windows outside and wash the car BUT NO! Q says she wants to go out for a bike ride in the snow! I […]

Whistlestop Cafe review

OK, so it was a Thursday, and late afternoon. The sun was shining (occasionally), and the rain was falling on our son in Manchester rather than here in Wales so……we decided to go out for a ride! After all, it had been at least……oh, a day, since we’d been on the Wing! The new revamped […]
