Roath Court Road,’The Sunday Play Project’.

Roath Court Road, The Sunday Play Project’.

Roath Court Road ‘The Sunday Play Project’ – Roath Recreational Play Ground.

Perhaps I am a long in the tooth or a prude, but I did have a child about 19 yeears ago so I am trying to see this from a parents perspective, however before I go into detail, I just would firstly like to explain that on a Sunday I work from home. Where I live it is a built up residential area with terraced houses which have long gardens in the back of the houses.

So some clever person decided a while ago perhaps nearly a year ago now that they would introduce a play area project where on a Sunday young children can play on the ‘actual road’ which would be cordoned off to the traffic, meaning no cars can drive up or down this road between the allocated time.

Now here is the thing, whoever decided to do this did not ask all the residents if they agreed or opposed to the idea, they just went ahead and did it.

Heres the directions to the ‘Roath Recreational Play Ground For Children just in case newcomers Parents do not know their way around Roath:

Distance of Roath Recreational Park From Roath Court Road.

So now your wondering where am I going with this and here’s my answer….

  1. Firstly all residents on this street and nearby areas have got back gardens for children to play in.
  2. There is Roath Recreational Park (Roath Rec as known by the Locals) especially designed for young children to play nearby.
  3. It is a potential health and safety issue to allow children to run around on gravel tarmaced roads unlike the specially designed: Artificial Grass and Sports Surfacing. … Grass Matting. … Resin Bound Gravel. … Rubber Mulch. … Wetpour Surfacing. So if a child happens to slip and graze their hands and knees, who is at fault and who should compensate never mind and God forbid if the gravel even richochet into the child’s eyes? (maybe the clever parent who thought of this brainwave idea)?
  4. The decision maker also did not take into consideration the fact some people work shifts and most bedrooms face the front so hearing screaming children and chattering from parents is viewed dimly from the perspective of the person trying to get some sleep.
  5. Now here is my ten peneth, what about the people that want to work from home but they can’t because of the noise outside? Should the person just go to their normal place of work because the children of the community have the priority for the day? (I don’t think so………. and I live in a flat so my living room unlike everyone else’s on this street faces the front, furthermore I am limited to where I can work).
  6. Who would pay if there was damage to a parked car on the road that happened to be where the children were playing, who would even own up to it? There are no street cameras on this road, so can one prove that the child caused the damage. Would that mean the car owners will have to install cctv but there is a law where you cannot record minors so the car owners are screwed unless they physically stand by their cars in vigilence for the duration of the play time. (I for one have had my car dented and scratched but could not prove who did it so I am left to pay for the damages). Imagine if this was the fault of one one children then the parent would have to pay or the decision maker of this idiotic idea. (There is an image on of an example of children playing football near parked cars. I could not use the image as I would assume it is copyrighted by the same person whom set up the twitter account.

This project was not thought through at all……

I am livid to say the least as when I was bringing up my child I took her to the playground at Roath Rec as shown above and she has come out fine from it, so why was it that whoever decided to implement such a stupid idea did not have a plan in place and did not do their research of all the bad things that can happen causing a butterfly effect.

I for one think roads are dangerous to play because of the health and safety aspect for the child. Also what happens if the child kicks a ball too hard and dents a car or scratches it?, who will compensate then? Furthermore cars which are on the road that pay car tax have the right to come and go as they please, imagine if someone was moving in or out and had to make several trips this would obviously disturb the parents who would not be happy and no doubt would be up in arms saying that the mover could have planned another day or time as not to intrude of their childrens play time.

I personally think it is too late to do something about it now as how can you take something away (the play project) from a community that you originally gave it too?, It is like taking candy away from a child, parents would be in upheival saying “no one has complained before” or “what harm can children do”? So now you would be left with a lot of explaining to do. The only way anything is going to change is if one complained to the powers that be and even then they would take their time and have to do surveys and their own investigations before even coming up with a final decision which would take weeks or even months or if someone has an accident or damages a car where the owner of the car has witnessed it happening.

The moral of the story is do your research first before deciding for the people and weigh up all the pros and cons, not all people will agree to your idea and if you want my opinion the project should be scrapped as the parents of the children have a perfectly good play area within walking distance ‘Roath Recreational Play Ground’ or their own Back Gardens to play in.

Why are the parents only thinking of themselves, think of the other residents including the elderly that do not like noise.

Brains SA on my mind.

This is the third run in I have had with this company.

Yesterday I visited a bar and this is my third run in, in the centre of Cardiff called the Barocco, situated

12 Wharton Street,
CF10 1AG

I am 56 years of age and here is my problem. I proceeded to order two for one cocktails and a jug of Pimms.

Once I had made payment the female bar tender then said the person I was with needed to show some ID.

Granted she was well within her rights to ask for ID but she should have done so before taking payment.

I said no problem. but could she do it after she has made up my drinks as I planned to drink all the drink myself.

She insisted that she would not serve me until ID was produced, but she took my money….

I have a question what would have happened if ID was not produced would I not have had my drinks? I was getting distressed at this stage as my OCD and anxiety levels were kicking in and I simply did not want to drink there no more and wanted my money back which she refused to do.

Now going back to two other incidents of which I have mentioned in my blog before one was in Costa which at the time was owned by Brains SA where the trumped up manager was very rude and another time in the Pear Tree Wellfield Road where I witnessed a managers dog placed on the table where food get served on.

This company needs to train their staff properly and I will never step foot in a Brains SA establishment again.

Brains SA do not give a monkeys about their customers all they care about is getting money from them and that is it.

Absolutely Atrocious Company.



They say that hospitals have to be clean, well ever since my daughter was admitted into hospital 5 days ago, I beg to differ.

As a sufferer of OCD for the last 30 years I am more aware about germs and bacteria than the average person.

Upon arrival and before sitting down I brought with me all my cleaning products needed to disinfect our surroundings. I started cleaning the window sills first off with dettol and anti-bacterial wipes. The nurses on duty commented about the smell and how refreshing it was to inhale and that it was a shame the hospitals do not use Dettol anymore……

When I finally finished cleaning, my wipes were very dirty and brown, so to make a point I left them on the trolley for a senior staff member to see. When the doctor came in I pointed out how dirty I found the room to be and his reply was I’m a Doctor not a Cleaner……

This annoyed me as he continued to say if I had a complaint I should raise it with the Ward Manager or the Cleaning staff. He clearly missed the point as guaranteed if I went to every single ward in the hospital I would find the same standards everywhere.

Considering my daughter is at high risk of contracting diseases you would have thought the area would be super clean.

Furthermore the oxygen mask they gave my daughter was neither wiped before use or after she had finished with it, so imagine someone with vrus could have used it before my daughter. The thought makes me shudder.

The hygenie standards of the UHW are really bad and they wonder why people do not like coming into hospitals.

I also observed the one doctor who had trouble getting my daughter bloods, pushed the syringe up rather than down. I’m no expert but surely that is pushing air into the veins? correct me if i’m wrong? What was I supposed to do or say “excuse me but what the hell are you doing?” im sure that would not have gone down well.

Also the intelligence of some of the staff is something to be desired. I was always taught when you enter the room and you see more than one person you address them all and not ignore the one and just talk to the other. Its called etiquette.

Obviously this Doctor who did not have a name badge was not taught manners and blattently ignored me as if I was invisible. Surely as I am the mother she should have at least acknowledged both my daugher and I and then continued with ther job.

All I can say was we were on ward C4 at eh UHW or (UHS as it is called now in Cardiff Wales) and the Doctor was a female muslim because of her head dress. I did not once see her wash her hands prior to taking my daughters bloods and she did not wear gloves as she was having problems feeling my daughters veins.

I thought that every time a doctor or nurse attends to a patient they have to wash their hands, this has not been the case in Unit C4 or in A&E when my daughter was admitted a few months ago and was ther overnight.

Also what happened to the rule (bare below the elbows) does that just apply to nurses or should all staff that care for patents wellbeing?, as that was clearly not the case with this female doctor on Unit C4 on 19/08//18.

My OCD observations are clearly doing over-time and the hospital should hire me to be the health inspector.



For businesses considering to pay their employees in anything else other than good old fashion cash, they have another thing coming……

As crypto currency has evolved, so has tighter regulations on who can and can’t trade. What this means is one has to acquire a license in order to have search engines rank your website, without this your website will just float in cyberspace or may be taken down indefinatley.

The same goes with businesses paying their employees in gold bullion only or accepting payments in gold or silver bullion. A new law has been introduced in order not to avoid paying taxes, so that it is illegal to trade this way.

Business’s are starting to talk about the importance of securing domain names and how to value these digital assests.

What may sound far fetched or an innovation for the future may in actual fact be closer to our present time than we think, with passwords being a thing of the past.

Biometrics security uses technology such as Facial, Retina, Voice and Fingerprint Recognition and is already being implemented into our passports and in Government Institutions. We already have biometric fingerprint recognition in our schools for school meals in the UK.

Banking institutions will use facial scanners and voice recognition to authenticate users to allow access to all the banking services. This will potentially eliminate identity theft by using an individual’s facial
characteristics to athenticate the user which is more secure than passwords and chip and pin or contactless that can be cloned or stolen.

What will happen eventually in the future we will have chips implanted which will hold all our data which will be a replacement for our credit and debit cards.

Recently MasterCard announced that they will be introducing biometric payment cards with built in finger sensors.

The concept will ensure that the user will have to authenticate the payment with their finger print which will authorise the payment. This will also act as a move over new EU regulations that will come into force later this year to combat bank fraud, enforcing people to have two way authentication security methods to complete transactions.

We have available in our inventory for sale.
