I’ve always loved the idea of a campervan, having the freedom to just hop in and go wherever you want at the drop of a hat. But sometimes, the very vans that are supposed to give peace of mind and freedom can become a source of worry, frustration and a financial ball and chain.

I remember coming in for a late shift on Wales Today and slumping to my desk, exhausted and frazzled before my working day had even begun.

Since it’s the last X-Ray until the Autumn, I thought I’d give you a little glimpse behind the scenes into how we filmed some of the stories you’ll see on tonight’s programme.

Most of us have seen the images of Aberystwyth as it was battered by huge waves during the recent storms. But it was still a shock, as I walked along the seafront, to see the huge piles of sand that had been dumped on the walkway by a raging sea.

Now, you know we love saving a bit of cash on X-Ray, and we pride ourselves on knowing how to do it pretty well. In fact, it’s not often we’re surprised by money-saving tips. But the results of extreme couponing - and we are talking extreme here - have been the talk of the office.

It's our job on X-Ray to expose people who are only too willing to rip you off. But there was something particularly nasty and upsetting about the way unscrupulous people at corrupt call centres in Swansea targeted elderly and vulnerable people.

I know the programme is called X-Ray, but I never thought having an MRI scan would be part of the job. To find out how our brains react to supermarket offers, that’s just what I did with the psychology research team at Bangor University.

We can’t wait to get back on-air. The team are all fired up to fight your corner, and we’ve already got some really strong investigations underway, tracking down the people who are ripping you off.

I don't have a very strong stomach. Even the mere thought of curdled milk can leave me feeling queasy. So during the interview with Alastair Low of Cardiff Scientific Services, I could immediately feel my tummy starting to churn. Insects.

Model railways! Boys – whatever their age – just love their toys!

I'm going to have to hold my hands up straight away on this story and admit – I'm guilty. Guilty of leaving my phone on the table when I'm out. Guilty of texting as I'm walking along the street.

I'm sitting at my desk in the X-Ray office, typing away writing this blog on the computer. I'm about to email it to the Interactive and Learning department where it will be uploaded and hopefully, accessed by keen X-Ray viewers!

I've already tried my hand at juggling for this series of X-Ray. When it was mentioned we'd be filming with cheerleaders, I blanched. Surely not?!

I have to say, I love doing vox pops. You can never predict what is going to be said.

Rhodri and I record the introductions to the reports and the responses following them. They're the glue that helps the programme flow from one item to the next.
