Welcome to my blog, let me start by telling you about the name….

Cariad is a Welsh word, it means many things but ultimately means love


cariad m (plural cariadau or cariadon)

  1. love, charity, affection
  2. beloved (one); lover, sweetheart, darling, boyfriend, girlfriend

Now you know about the name behind the blog, it’s best I start off by telling you a little bit about myself…

I’m Ellen, in my late 30’s (how did that happen?), I live in North Wales with my family which consists of a husband, a daughter and 2 sons. I have lots of different interests ranging from reading, taking photos, watching documentaries, indulging in box sets and mooching around in Poundland for a bargain.

So this blog is my little corner of the world to collate all the things I love & some that I don’t by following the mantra on bad days of ‘when life throws you lemons, make lemonade’.
