Rhosnegir Beaches and the Sea Zoo

It must have rained in the night but by morning the blue skies were on their way back. So instead of going to the pool again we took the kids to Rhosnegir to show them were we got engaged on the beach 8 years ago.

We bought fishing nets and went scrambling through rock pools looking at fish and crabs, and collecting shells.

They were thrilled to spot a little fish, about to be rescued by the returning tide, and crabs both alive, and also dismembered by seagulls! They poked at dead jelly fish and collected loads of shells.

What is it with little boys and dead things?

 The kids LOVED the rock pools! And we loevd taking them to play on them. This is the kind of stuff I've always wanted to do with my kids.




After that we crossed the island again and headed for the Sea Zoo. I must have been here a dozen or more times as a kid and I'm happy to say its every bit as good as I remember it. If you ever come to Angelsey you need to visit this place. It's amazing for people of any age. There's a lovely cafe, and a play ground for the kids too.

The kids loved seeing the local sea life like cray fish and lobsters but they were most impressed by the sea bass because we saw them betting fed buckets full of tiny squid! The fish went into a frenzy, zipping about all over the place! Georgie loved looking at the crabs and had so much fun in the areas we could let him out of the pushchair and let him get right up close to the tanks. When we came out it had been raining again but we'd missed it and the sky was almost totally clear again - I can't believe how lucky we've been with the weather! They had a mental hour on the playground burning off excess energy before we piled back into the car.


Next we went in search of my favourite beach from childhood, one I've never been able to find since I was about 14. It's always felt like a wonderful and romantic place to me. It's the beach I was hoping to have for our engagement but couldn't quite find.  But this time we found it! Almost by accident! And only 2 minutes away from (the almost as perfect) place he actually did pop the question.

 It was still beautiful and unspoiled! Jack & Tom played in the sea while Georgie tried his best to eat the whole beach (when will that boy learn to stop eating sand??). I could have stayed there all evening but it was well past tea time so we headed back to the Little Purple House via Mc Donald's.

Tonight it our last night. But we have more fun planned for tomorrow!

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola
