I’m currently devouring my copy of ‘The Art of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ * which arrived in the post last week. I had pre-ordered it to collect in store but well, lockdown happened. I’ve been looking forward to getting my hands on this book for a while. I have all the previous Star … Continue reading The Art of Star Wars : The Rise of Skywalker – Roads not taken
Ever had a television programme find you? Not long after our first visit to Ireland we were flicking through channels trying to find something to watch when a bridge that looked a little familiar appeared on screen.

A trip first planned back in August to visit friends in the Welsh capital and … Continue reading NYC in the ‘Diff – Cardiff doubles as New York City!
