Christmas Holidays!

On Saturday I left uni for my 4 week Christmas holiday.  Having the Kia Soul was brilliant because it meant I didn’t need to be picked up or get the train and I could pack as much as I wanted!  Today I went Christmas shopping in the new St David’s 2 Centre in Cardiff.  It…

First drive in the Kia Soul

First drive in the Kia Soul

The Kia Soul arrived yesterday and I went for my first drive in it to ASDA.  It was strange driving an automatic as I have only ever driven a manual but I should get used to it pretty soon.  The car seems bigger in real life than it did in the photos so I was…

Bath Christmas Market

After visiting the Bath Christmas Market last year, I couldn’t wait to go back there this year.  The stalls all sell lovely stuff and there are plenty of stalls selling food and drinks.  Even though it was absolutely packed all day, we still had a good time!  It took a long time to walk around…

Choosing the Kia Soul

Today I was asked to pick which type of Kia Soul I wanted for the term.  I didn’t realise cars were so confusing – I had a choice of 2 cars but still managed to pick a type which doesn’t exist!  I was asked if I wanted an automatic or manual, petrol or diesel and…

Kia Soul

I’m sooo excited, I actually won that competition I entered a few weeks ago to win a Kia Soul for a term!  My friends are already planning where I can take them once the car has arrived and I can’t wait to be able to drive to the supermarket instead of struggling up the hills…

Cumbria Center Parcs

Bright and early on Friday morning I set off for Center Parcs in the Lake District (near Penrith) with my parents and sisters.  We were driving from Cardiff and needed to be there by 3 o clock as we were booked in for a spa session in the Aqua Sana.  Fortunately there were no delays…

We Will Rock You

My friend is a massive fan of Queen so a few days ago we went to see ‘We Will Rock You’ , the Queen musical, in the Bristol Hippodrome.  It’s a story about a time in the future when instruments have been banned and people can only listen to computer generated songs.  The actual story…

Cedar House

Last night I was at a lovely hotel in Cobham, Surrey called Cedar House. It was my Auntie’s 50th birthday so lots her friends and family met up for the evening. The hotel is really pretty and cosy but with 90 people in the function room and snug it was very busy! Both rooms and…

Kia Soul

I’ve entered a competition that’s giving a Kia Soul to a student for a term.  I’m not really into cars so hadn’t heard of this one before but when I looked it up online I was surprised by how distinctive and quirky it is!  It kind of looks like a Postman Pat van with a…

Rain Man

It was my Dad’s birthday on Friday so my sisters and I took him to see Rain Man in The New Theatre, Cardiff as a surprise.  All the actors gave a great performance although Neil Morrissey (from Men Behaving Badly and Waterloo Road) gave the best performance as Raymond Babbit, an autistic savant.  Other actors…
