The final bits of Wales

Well the Welsh album is now away and will re-appear only to be looked at when we want to remember that little break, significant in that it was the first time we left our boys too.



I loved the wild rhododendrons clinging to the slate hills




Visiting Aberfan was such an important thing for me to do and it was terribly moving. The first news story I ever remember, it killed children my age and so I felt I really had to go and pay my respects


The mass grave site and memorial is beautiful but heart-wrenching



and that garden on the site of the school was at the same time dreadful and beautiful.





I struggled enourmously with this page as I couldn't work out how to do it so the map unfolded. I got there in the end









It really was a lovely little trip. Not a proper road trip by our American standards, but none the less, a lovely trip.

I think we have to get used to holidaying in the UK for the foreseeable future.


Road trip for sketch


Little else to report here.

I have been sewing - and for once not on paper or card. I have been making the boys little bandanas for their 1st brithday and also some bunting. Yes, it's offical. I am crazy cat lady!


Today I am thankful for

  • a task completed
  • my boys - all three of them. They made a great team the other night when a massive - and I do mean massive - spider ran across the loungs. Koda spotted it, Indy chased it, Nigel 'dealt' with it. We try never ever to kill spiders but he was huge and fast and nothing to catch him in other than a slipper. We were very sorry.
