Sometimes you get small moments even as the mummy of a very pro active toddler to wear a fancy dress and you even get to go on a small date, (toddler in tow of course). When we had our mini break we were on a tight budget but we decided we would have one nice meal out. I found a great restaurant just by the Menai Bridge aptly called The Straits Restaurant an ordinarily pricey place they actually do a very reasonable 2 course fixed price menu for £15.95. My beetroot risotto was a dream.
So I donned a pretty frock and we headed off to the restaurant. On the way the little dude fell asleep so we pulled over to have a chat. We also took some great pictures of the Menai Bridge and some of my super cool frock with the bridge in the background.
It is such a beautiful bridge and the location gave us quite a lot to spot and google whilst we waited for the mini to wake up so we could go and eat. Down in what is called The Swellies is a tiny church, St. Tysilio’s Church to be exact. We discovered a few interesting facts about this church; it is thought that the church was dedicated in the 7th century but the current building only dates back to the 15th century and no one knows who built the current building. There is a causeway leading to the church that is covered by water once a day and the small graveyard that holds the bodies of the workmen who died during the construction of the Menai Bridge.
We enjoyed our hour of ‘grown up time’ and then he woke up and we ate. During dinner Joe turned to me and said, “this is perfect, the three of us, I love all of us together why would we want to ever go on holiday without him.” It is in those moments that I realise how much I love this guy because he is totally on the same page as me when it comes to Sebastian. We are obsessed, that little guy completes us.
