Christmas at Bluestone: Day 5 (and some tips!)

Christmas at Bluestone: Day 5 (and some tips!)

On the Friday, we woke up to bright sunshine again. It seems to be a recurring theme that every time we go to Wales, the weather perks up just as we’re leaving. Typically, sun was forecast for at least the weekend afterwards.

As Dave was packing up everything, I took Autumn for a walk down to the village to see the advent countdown. There were notably fewer people and a fairly sombre mood. I could have happily stayed at Bluestone for far longer. I actually was on the brink of tears when we were leaving. View Post

Woohoo, this is my 200th blog post! I couldn’t let this slip by without a casual mention. I love that it’s happened to fall on this blog post. Our Christmas midweek break at Bluestone was so wonderful. I’ve really been enjoying reliving it on the blog this week!

By our fourth day at Bluestone, I was beginning to feel quite sad. The week had gone so fast! I wanted to visit Santa’s Workshop and Elftopia and do all the Christmassy things again!  View Post

Day three of our midweek break at Bluestone was arguably the day that I’d been most looking forward to! Unfortunately, when it arrived, we were all a bit tired and grouchy. Autumn had had a bad night with her teething and we felt the effects too.

However, we were looking forward to our activities for the day. Dave was booked in to go tree climbing in the morning. In the afternoon, we were booked in for Christmas activities! First, we were going to be taking a trip to Elftopia (Kingdom of the Elves). Afterwards, we were going to visit Santa’s Workshop. We were already feeling incredibly festive from all the Christmassy signs around the park and the Christmas lights in the village.  View Post

After all the travelling on Monday, we felt the need to do relaxing things on the second day of our midweek break at Bluestone.

Seaweed Bath

My Tuesday began with a seaweed bath at The Well Spa. It was a really lovely atmosphere, walking down to the village in the morning. All the Christmas lights made it feel rather magical. I especially loved the lights on The Well Spa!

As is often the way at this time of year, there are lots of nasty bugs and viruses going around. I’ve managed to catch a lot of them, being unwell from the end of September until now (with the exception of only one week!) I’ve been particularly poorly over the last couple of weeks since we got back from Bluestone. Unfortunately, it’s put me behind with everything. My poor little blog has had hardly any attention. Just working and looking after Autumn has taken up all my energy!

Anyway, that’s enough whining. I’m excited because I can finally write about our lovely week at Bluestone, visiting Elftopia (Kingdom of the Elves) and seeing many of the things that Christmasland had to offer! I’ve been itching to write a diary of our week. It will be lovely for Autumn to look back on when she’s older! View Post
