'My Dads allotments is car park..'

from you to me: Father's Day Competition - Enter Now: With Father's Day on Sunday 16th June, I wanted to express what Dads can mean to us. This photo is of my Dad who inspired me to set up my own business, be independent and the person who I'am today.. wife, mother and researcher of life things.This photo brings back happy memories of a lovely week away staying in cottage in Burford and visiting cotswold wildlife park (below) and Broadway tower.
My dad was skilled garden and spent most of his time in his, his mothers and other peoples garden. This photo of my son reminds me of him and time we spent in the garden..this is his fork!..We had large garden and he also had allotment too..Sadly my dads well attended allotments is now cark park ..

A world of history awaits for you in CARDIFF 
entered into competition just need vote thanks..

Great we are off to Cardiff for a few nights stay ..then you come back down to earth, Cardiff  is it a city with nightlife and everything else a city has to offer, will this be a great place for us to visit with our children? well we need not have worried our accommodation was supplied by a space in the city a luxury two bed apartment on a secure gated development complete with secure underground parking and 24 hour security. If thats not your scene then you have the choice of the standard budget hotels all within easy walking distance or bus shuttle service to the city center or you have the selection of the top hotels from the Radisson to the Hilton all based a few minutes walk from the city center.
Cardiff over the last decade has undergone a massive redevelopment and it shows it is also a city that is small so easy to get around on foot and see all the great sites and attractions it has to offer .
Shops galore and you can shop until you drop all the big names are here from your everyday high street shops to the top designer shops to the lovely small independent shops all offering you an array of goods to buy .
Food and places to eat..  then you have your choices of great restaurants to snack bars to fast food takeaways from eating on a budget to the full dining experience it is all here in Cardiff. We chose Eds Diner, St Davids shopping Centre a great american theme diner  'oh happy days' yes you did expected the fonz to walk in. .served quickly with filling hot dogs and shakes. Featured I was told in a Dr Who episode, great for Dr Who fans and reasonably priced too. 
Cardiff has history in abundance, it was once one of the uk's biggest docks where coal was shipped out around the world, notables famous characters who came from Cardiff were Roald Dahl.
Where to take the children well again you have a great choice from the fantastic Cardiff castle to the  Dr who experience, onto techniquest and the National museum which is free to enter and covers things from interactive room for children to art galleries. From city centre you can then follow Taff Trail marked out with pictures on the pavement to keep kids amused on the walk down to the bay area. Here you can take a speedboat ride or a leisurely cruise and finally do not forget to take a look around the millenium stadium too. Romantic weekend away to the family weekend away with loads to see, loads to do and loads of memories to take away.
 I will be back and I am sure many other visitors will be too.
