January is...

 I enjoy reading blogs about different people and places and learning what each season means to them.  I also love writing lists.  So here is a list of a few things about our January.  I'd like to know what your January will look like too:

Days Out: Five Different Driving Experiences for Car Enthusiasts

Research tells us that new experiences make us happier than buying new "things" and I agree.  Thankfully there are all sorts of experience days out there to buy for friends and family in gift form- the hardest part is choosing which experience to go for.  If you're planning to buy a driving experience for the car enthusiast in your life take a look at our list of five different driving experience days - there's something to suit every self confessed  "petrol head":


Visiting The Little Chap, St Govan's Head, Pembrokeshire

A great place to explore in Pembrokeshire is St Govan's Head and Chapel.  It is a free walk close to Bosherston so you could combine it with a day visiting Bosherston Lily Ponds.  Pass through Bosherston and towards St Govans and Castlemartin until you reach the free car park (Sat Nav postcode:  SA71 5DR).  There are no facilities here (the closest toilets are situated in the National Trust carpark in Bosherston) but in the summer there is usually an ice cream van.  Castlemartin is a firing range so this walk is only open  when the range is not in use.  Check ahead for firing times for military ranges before you visit.

Swimming into the New Year

As a family we love to go swimming but have really slipped out of our swimming habits in recent years.  When the three older kids were younger they were all in swimming lessons and we went to our local pool regularly.  Due to family illness we had to cancel the lessons as I no longer had the time to take the kids and once life got back on track I failed to re-book them  meaning Isabelle has never had a swimming lesson.  Currently we only really swim while on holiday and during our visits to Blue Lagoon at Bluestone which means more floating around the lazy river or sliding down the flumes rather than swimming in lanes.  Here are some ways I plan to increase our swimming time this year:
