How Do You Spend Your Evening?

Pea and Ham Soup Recipe

Pea and ham soup is something I have been wanting to make for quite some time now but never got round to it. About a week ago me and my partner went to our local meat warehouse store, well saying local it's about 40 minutes away in Llangefni. We saw they had 2 gammon joints for a decent price,…

E is for Elephant

When we went to visit Thailand for 3 weeks in February I have to say that it was one of the best experiences ever. We managed to do quite a few things over the 3 weeks and one of them was having the experience to have a ride on an elephant and Mia had the amazing experience of playing football with an elephant.

When we arrived at the Elephant Hospital Charity in Thailand we decided to have a ride on one. I'd be lying to say that I was excited because in fact I was bricking it. I was so petrified. We went inside and paid, I cant remember how much it cost but it wasn't expensive. We were then led to some steps that lead up to a high platform - the same height as the elephant so we could go sit on the seat on its back. Elliw went on with my partners Dad and I went on with Mia and my partner. My partner and Mia went first and I went last, I was shaking and so scared I was going to fall! Safety is completely different in Thailand than it is here.



The elephant moved and off we went for the ride. I hadn't realised how big/tall an elephant was until I had this experience. You moved from side to side and sometimes you would feel that you would fall off the side and it was pretty scary when the elephant would walk up some little hills and back down again but the girls absolutely loved it. It was time to get off and getting off the elephant was just as bad as it was getting on! The girls had the chance to feed the elephant some fruit and shockingly Mia had no problem and she loved it. Elliw was so-and-so and wasn't 100% keen.


It was really nice seeing the girls being so confident but it was such a shock and lovely to see Mia the most confident because she is usually the shy one and usually the one who would come to me and be stuck on me but she loved the elephants. After feeding the elephants we were then led to some benches where we sat down and a Thai man brought on a baby elephant, who was beautiful.
