There was sea,
Ty Mawr is the birthplace of Bishop Morgan who translated the Bible into Welsh.
What worked for us this year?
- Finding a holiday cottage nearish to a church we wanted to attend.
- Going on holiday before most schools were on holiday.
- Enjoying the beach and countryside rather than many formal "attractions".
- Not using the topbox on the car certainly made petrol costs better than in previous years.
Where we could improve
Occupations and snacks for the journey. We did take some favourite books and I heard "The hungry caterpillar" and "Tremendous tractors" more times than I care to think about but we could have done with more for the little ones plus healthy snacks.
The constant enigma
Holidays in the three generation family. Our eldest son stayed at home to look after Grandma which is sort of a solution. We are between this and taking everyone using two cars which means that my husband and I have double the driving and realistically we can't travel too far. Maybe another time we will take everyone but not go far.
