Ghost Hunting at Llancaiach Fawr

I have always been fascinated by The Tudor’s, and started my family history hoping to find that I am related to Henry VIII or Anne Boleyn.  I left high school straight after my GCSE’s, and did not get my first A Level until I was 24.  I selected History and the coursework project question was, ‘talk about an area that benefitted from the industrial revolution’, or along those lines.  The obvious choice for me was Cardiff and the growth docks area using the Glamorganshire Canal to bring coal down from The Valleys.  My love of local history began!

The Ultimate Pop Reunion at Tramshed Cardiff

Tramshed is the newest live music venue in Cardiff, which can host up to 1,000 attendees.  It is a 10 minute walk from Cardiff Central Station or the Bierkeller building in Grangetown.  It is a Grade II listed, beautiful red bricked building, that used to be the tram depot and later the trolley buses in the 1900’s.

The Grangetown Tram Depot was one of six throughout Cardiff, and closed in 1953.  In later years it became maintenance workshops for Cardiff Council’s vehicles.  However in 1997 it was given a listed accreditation as a ‘rare surviving large building from a major tramway system’.

Hiking at Ystradfellte in the Brecon Beacons

Just under an hour’s drive from home is the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. In attempts to keep in good health and get in shape, I often plan trips to the various walks, trails and hikes in the spectacular local scenery. I headed to the area known as Waterfall Country where an unusually large number of publicly accessible falls are to be found.

So what is Real Girls Wobble all about?

Don’t be put off by the title, it’s not all about the battle with the bulge. It’s about our real day wobbles when we are faced with a challenge or temptation when trying to obtain our goals; whether that be weight, fitness, body image, the work life balance, etc.  Hopefully we can share our experiences along the way, and have a laugh or two as well!
