Review of Bluestone National Park Resort

As you may have noticed, since Monday we have been having the time of our lives at the Bluestone National Park Resort in Pembrokeshire.

Our Thursday Photo #35

I’ve just sat down to write this post and looked back at last week’s Thursday photo to check what number I was up to. I can’t believe my last Thursday photo was only a week ago, we’ve had so many adventures since then.  Today, we made the most of our last full day at Bluestone. We went swimming in the Blue Lagoon then headed over to the adventure centre for soft play before lunch. After lunch, hubby took Libby to toddler sensory while Lia had a nap. Toddler sensory was just Libby’s sort of thing, playing with gym equipment and…

I spent an incredibly relaxing two hours in the two steam…

Happy New Year!  We started this year in the best possible way, putting Lia to bed at around 8 pm yesterday and not getting her up until 7.40 am today. This is the third time she has effectively slept through the night, but the first time she hasn’t been awake at 5 or 6 am for a feed.  We decided to go to the cinema this morning to see Paddington. We enjoyed the film and Lia behaved immaculately throughout. Libby on the other hand couldn’t bring herself to sit still and ended up dropping her popcorn on the floor. This…
