Hello my friends. Yes, I hold my hand up – I’ve been missing yet again! I did put together a post a couple of weeks ago, only to find I couldn’t add the photo… so had to give up. I’m trying again – and who knows whether there will be a photo today! Much has been happening on my desk, though. Cards made, two cardigans knitted, a blanket for a single bed finished this Tuesday evening, a day out in the mountains with John, our holiday with the family, and much gardening.

The cards I’ve made have mostly been for birthdays – but one or two were for Christmas challenges – which I couldn’t enter as I couldn’t add photos!! Oh well, there we go

I really must tell you what happened today. This afternoon, as you do, we popped into Llandudno to go to the bank and Asda…. and who should we meet walking down Mostyn Street (the main street in the town) but our very own Neet and her hubby. I was trying to help John on his scooter, fight his way through the crowds of people rushing along the pavement when I heard a voice say “Are you not going to say hello then?” – and there she was. It was SO lovely to chat for a few minutes and meet hubby. Hope you got home safely, Neet after your time away!

Well, would you believe it! No problem at all today – so I have no idea what I’ve been doing wrong for the past three weeks! These are just a few snaps from our “workdesk” the other day… A drive down into Snowdonia through the mountains – top left is the Snowdon horseshoe – then down to Beddgelert and a walk along the riverside (I walked, John tried his mobility scooter for the first time since coming out of hospital). The sun shone, the sky was cloudless, it was apparently the hottest place in Britain that afternoon!! From there we went down to Porthmadog to have lunch in the café on the Ffestiniog railway station, then drove home via Caernarfon and a tiny village called Llanllyfni where my great uncle was the minister 100years ago. Unfortunately the church was closed so we couldn’t get inside to see any records they hold – another day!

Well, that’s it for this week, my friends. I do trust you are well, and enjoying the beginnings of Spring here in the Northern hemisphere. I will do my best to get round to everyone – but it may well take a few days, as I need to be out in the garden whenever the sun shines for long enough to dry the borders – it’s commonly called “jungle clearance” as I didn’t do anything in the autumn!!!

Take care. God bless you.
