Christmas Eve started in the Deri, a lively pub in Rhiwbina, Cardiff before getting into the spirit of lager at the Butchers Arms, half a mile away.
Christmas Day saw me climbing a very chilly Caerphilly Mountain for a bracing walk and to take some photos of the ruins of a little known castle on a ridge overlooking Cardiff – expect a feature on the site soon!
The rest of the day was spent in the traditional manner, stuffing my face full of veggie treats, chocolate, mince pies and cake. And lager.
It even snowed in the evening too, adding a suitably Christmassy note.
The mighty Cardiff City were entertaining Wolves on Boxing Day, so I went down to Ninian Park for the traditional few hours of disappointment. And they didn’t, err, disappoint, throwing a one goal lead with 15 minutes to go….
Ho hum. The pub beckoned. Happy Christmas!
