, A Weekend in Cardiff and Newport

It was lovely to have some sister time. Mum will get to enjoy a nice weekend with Ceri next week too. She was busy looking after Caitlyn and Izzy this week (thanks, Mum!).

Saturday

On Saturday, we took a taxi and the train into Cardiff.

Pizza Express

We then made our way to Cardiff Bay for a Pizza Express before the show. Pizza Express is one of my favourite restaurant chains for vegan food. They were one of the first places I could order a vegan pizza with dairy-free cheese.

It was lovely to spend time with Rebecca.

There are so many options on the vegan menu, it was difficult to choose. Pizza is filling so I didn’t need a starter, especially double carbs, but this is the first time in years I’ve been to Pizza Express and I doubt I’ll get the chance for another couple of years. I was going to have the vegan dough balls but at the last minute changed my mind and ordered the vegan garlic bread with cheese. I’m so pleased I did as it was divine.

There are lots of vegan pizzas to choose from. I went for American Jack, adorned with smoky jackfruit “pepperoni” and tomato. I usually choose a vegan Margherita or vegetable pizza, but I’m glad I ordered this for a change. It was delicious. Thank you Pizza Express! Their vegan cheese, which is made using sprouted Italian brown rice, is the best I’ve ever tasted- I wish I could buy it to use at home!

Heathers the Musical at Wales Millennium Centre

Then it was time to head to Wales Millennium Centre to watch Heather’s the Musical. It was our first time back at The Centre so it was such a treat. I’ll tell you more in my next post but there are lots of covid safety procedures in place. We had an amazing time and loved Heathers the Musical (full review coming soon)!

Cardiff Centre

We walked back to Cardiff to meet Jo and Cerys, who were all shopped out. Then we made our way back to Newport to spend our last evening with Ceri and Lexy. It was such a lovely weekend, it just went far too quickly.

Sunday

The next day we made our way home by train and bus (typical Sunday travel) and I got to finish my book “The Last House on Needless Street” by Catriona Ward- it was very interesting…

Back home it was back to the grindstone, with the usual Sunday night getting ready for school and work once more. But we’re so lucky we had the chance to enjoy a fun weekend in Cardiff and Newport (thanks so much Ceri and Lexy).
