Finding the Right Tradesmen for the Job

If you are just about to embark on a Building Project one of the hardest tasks is getting the right people for the job.

I have on many occasions roped in family members and friends to help me do a few DIY jobs around the house, although this can be extremely cost effective, it can also be very frustrating because you have to work to their schedule at a time convenient to them. And even more annoying is when the job does not turn out quite how you expected which will leave you very disappointed and frustrated, and at the end of the day they were doing you a favour so you can hardly complain!!

I have learnt like many other people over the years that if you want a job worth doing its best to get the professionals in. These guys & girls are professionally trained and will work to your schedule, and clean up after themselves.

If you are looking for tradesman within the property, building, construction industry then this fabulous Property Blog lists a host of highly recommended companies with the North Wales area, including builders, roof specialists, kitchen specialist and even Flintshire Architects.

What ever the job, you will find a highly competent company that can carry out the job from start to finish in a professional manner.

Restaurant Llandudno

Jaya Fine Dining Indian Restaurant Llandudno is truly authentic and delicious. All the food is home cooked, freshly prepared and uses locally grown ingredients where possible.

The executive chef and owner Sunita comes from a family of Chefs and restaurateurs and they offer a truly unique experience. They combine traditional Indian and East African influences to create a truly unique blend of home cooked dishes.

The restaurant is set in a lovely venue, which is extremely welcoming and comfortable. I would recommend anyone to arrive a little bit earlier and have a drink in the lounge bar before hand. The lounge bar is utterly relaxing and stylish and a great place to peruse the menu at your leisure.

Jaya restaurant has recently been awarded the ‘Visit Wales Gold Award’ which rewards outstanding quality, exceptional comfort and hospitality in the serviced sector of Wales. It is an outstanding award that also recognises ongoing business development to improve their business for guests with disabilities.

The restaurant is very popular so it is best to book in advance.

Red Wine Varieties


There is a wide range of Red Wines on the market, and enough to suit all tastes and budgets.

I will list in order the Red Wines which I think are the most popular of the red wines grapes, this however does not necessarily mean it is correct, its just the list I have created and the ones that are more apparent to me and my friends (I have asked for their input with this).

1. Cabernet Sauvignon
These grapes are small, black with very tough skins. The wine is high in tannins and if not oaked it can be quite harsh. These grapes consist of rich flavours and taste of blackcurrent and chocolate and can be spicy.

2. Merlot
Merlot grapes are also small, blue in colour with thin skins. Merlot is a much softer and smoother wine than Cabernet and has far less tannins. It has complex flavours and low acid. Flavours of this wine include plum, cherry, blackcurrant, and rose.

3. Pinot Noir A very smooth wine, sometimes referred to as “liquid silk”. A soft texture, full bodied, but not as heavy as a cabernet. The flavours of this lovely wine consist of raspberries, cherries and smoke. Low in acid and tannins but high in alcohol.

4. Syrah/Shiraz
A black skinned grape with thick skin, it is a worldwide grape growing well in most places. Deep in colour, and highin tannins. The flavours consist of plum, blackberries and smoke. Made in two different styles; heavy and rich and fruitier and easy to drink.

5. Sangiovese
One of Italy’s oldest wines. Its colour has little depth; however it is high in tannins and acid.

6. Zinfandel
An all American grape. An easy growing grape that can be vinified in many styles from light to claret, to a very high alcohol wine. Flavours consist of berry and spice to black pepper.

Kenco Coffee

I, like many people find it really hard to motivate myself in the morning without my daily Kenco Coffee fix. I’ve tried various brands of other coffee but none seem to hit the spot like Kenco Coffee.

Fortunately for me, we have just had a new Kenco Coffee Machine brought into the office which stocks not just coffee but other products as well in a range known as Kenco Singles. These are just superb as many people have a different preference when it comes to a hot beverage. Some like tea, other like hot chocolate some like light coffee where as other like strong coffee (strong for me every time)! The Kenco Singles range also includes espresso, cappuccinos, black coffee and even peppermint tea, the list goes on and on.

I used to be someone that didn’t leave the house before I had two coffees in the morning but these days I am more inclined to get to work a little bit early and enjoy a nice strong Columbian Coffee before the work load begins.
