The DDWT family headed off to the Eisteddfod today for a proper look around the maes. I’ll provide a full report later as I’m rushing now to get back to the maes for a reception. In the meantime, here are a few snaps we took whilst out and about.
Our family day at the Maes (our first EVER visit) was great and we spent the best part of 5 hours wandering around sampling pretty much everything that was on offer. The Welsh speaking dalek is worth a particular mention as is the Science and Technology area – both of which we spent considerable time at playing with the various gadgets on offer. DDWT Junior even fancied having a go on the surf simulator in the Council tent but obviously he was too small, so he made do with a giant jigsaw of three cliffs bay instead.
We used the park and ride to get to the Eisteddfod, which meant that DDWT Junior had his very first ever ride on a bus and he absolutely loved it! I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of the bus in years to come. Mind you I think it helped a wee bit that we told him it was ‘Bertie’ the bus from Thomas the Tank Engine (albeit a different colour and shape).
As for the Swans well they lost 1 nil against the Latics of Oldham and this season I’m afraid looks like being a struggle after the highlights of the last campaign. It’s not been a good week on the whol really what with captain Gary Monk being ruled out for the season with cruciate ligament damage.
