So in the age of digital media, where we put our thoughts, feelings on the web and share our news on social media have we forgotten the power of the pen? When the hand-written letter, thank you note or documents is fast becoming a thing of the past, the art of elegant or even just legible handwriting may well be under threat. The unofficial holiday National Handwriting Day encourages you to put pen to paper, and to practice your handwriting.
What a week I have had! For January, I have had an immensely busy few weeks, I am looking forward to some peace and quiet in February – but I am sure something will pop up to keep me away from my leisure time.
Thursday 17th January 2019 is Women’s Healthy Weight Day. Yes, apparently this is a thing! Why are we all so obsessed with how we look? Should we really be blaming the media, when cases of anorexia and bulimia can be dated back to the 15th Century and perhaps beyond?
Did you say sandwiches and cakes, with a Welsh theme? Yes, please!
On Thursday 10th January, I attended a bloggers event at Future Inns in Cardiff Bay which re-launched their afternoon tea offering. When it comes to indulging on a finger sandwich and scone you are quite literally spoilt for choice in Cardiff.
What is most impressive about the Taste of Wales Afternoon Tea, apart from the price, was that it is homemade. You always know when cakes have been bought in, or added too, cut up, etc so it makes such a difference when they are made from scratch and only have to travel a few metres from the kitchen to your table.
