Monster Monday - Weekly Round up #3



Dont forget this months Giveaway (only 8 days left)  


Hello fellow bloggers, its a new week and another Weekly Roundup is due.

This week has been an unusually quiet one, normally we have got plenty going on and planning weeks in advance to ensure everything goes without a hitch. but i have found to have plenty of time on my hands this week, and i dont know if that is a good thing or not?

 Its shameful to admit that i haven't taken any photos this week, which is not like me as I have always got my camera with me no matter where i go.

So, i thought i would take some old photos and try and put a different spin on them.... Let me know what you think.




I hope you have a fab week, hopefully i will have more to tell you about next week.

Monster Monday - Weekly Round up #2


           Dont forget this months Prize Giveaway


Well another week has passed and im that much older, another exciting week for the Weekly Roundup. My parents have had the opportunity to purchase a holiday home on the cost of west Wales which we helped them move into on Friday. Of course it would be rude not to stay the evening and take in the sights and sounds of the area.

A trip around the cost has given us some spectacular images and many of you have see these from New Quay bay and Mwnt Cove. Just because i can here are a couple more to show you.

As i mentioned last week we had bought tickets to see the delightful Miss.Nicki Minaj, we have now had concert tickets to see the following bands

Sabaton.... for those interested a video is below from their new album Carolus Rex.


And we will also be attending a local multi-band day out called Merthyr Rocks.

Apart from that my week is now wrapped up and we start all over again.

Oh yeah one more thing.... Happy Anniversary Mam & Dad, 35 years and 4 Kids later. your still our rock!!

Have a lovely week all.

Images of the day - Mwnt Bay

Today we decided to take a trip to the small cove of Mwnt (pronounced Munt) on the cost of Western Wales. I cant believe that with something so breath takingly beautiful on our doorstep we have never been here before.

Some history of this spectacular place


Mwnt was the site of an unsuccessful invasion by Flemings in 1155, and its defeat was long afterwards celebrated on the first Sunday in January as"Sul Coch y Mwnt". The name (Red Sunday) was given in consequence of the blood shed on that day. It is reputed that the bones of the defeated invaders would occasionally be visible under the sand when uncovered by windy conditions in the early 20th century
The Church of the Holy Cross (WelshEglwys y Grog) is an example of a medieval sailor's chapel of ease. The site is said to have been used since the Age of the Saints, but the present building is probably 14th century. It has an example of a 12th or 13th century font made of Preseli stone. Mwnt was a civil parish in its own right for several centuries, but before the 17th century it was a detached chapelry of the parish of Llangoedmor. Since 1934, it has been part of the parish of Y Ferwig.

Sorry for the photo quality, we only had our mobile phones to hand. I hope you enjoy.

Monster Monday - Weekly round up #1


           Dont forget this months Prize Giveaway

Hey all, I hope that you all have a happy and productive weekend? Seeing that this months giveaway in in full  swing now i thought i would share some random goings on at the moment in a Weekly Roundup

Last Wednesday marked the 9 year anniversary of Me and my beautiful Fiancee Gemma, we are unlike any other conventional couple and give the obligatory flowers, chocolates and out for a romantic candle lit dinner for two... Instead we decided to buy each other concert tickets to see Nicki Minaj when she comes to Cardiff in November (a little wait i know. But well, well worth it). For those of you who are not in the know, she looks a little like this.....
Courtesy of Google 
Not the most conventional of ladies but puts on one hell of a show.











A little surprise that i did get for our anniversary was a cross stitched camera bag, as many of you know my better half is a cross stitching queen (check out her blog Stitching Gems). I think she was sick of me moaning that my filter, brushes, memory cards Etc were spilling out of my bag every time I open it up. This is the little bag that I had given to me, its pretty neat and does just the trick in my camera bag. Cheers Jigga !!!


On the work from both myself and Gemma had been promoted within the same week. I now become a Continuous improvement co-ordinator and Gemma the store supervisor of a local fashion house.

Apart from my photography the other things i love to do, and will share with you is reading and building my scale models.

Ive picked up a new Zombie apocalypse fiction from my blogging brother over @ Mithril wisdom , ive only
just started but its a good read so far (albeit 10 pages in) and the main guy has already assassinated a zombie from up a tree with a sniper rifle.

Here are the cover in case anyone is interested (please dont mind Rex sticking his head out of the top) he 's harmless !!






















And finally the models that i have been building and the new addition to the arsenal

The update on the Valentino Rossi bike build



Please ignore the different colour wheels, i had a little lapse in concerntration



And the newest toy in the Box




Thanks for hanging around guys (and gals, really appreciate you taking the time)
