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.

    Such a beautiful photos and landscape… I LOVE those Welsh names… I visited Wales two time (years ago…) and fell in love immediately! I would love to visit it again some day… hope the weather has improved in your region too (Spring really arrived in the Netherlands last weekend! Lovely, sunny weather at last!) Love, Marit #39

    It was lovely to see you both – shame it was cold and windy so that John had to push off out of the wind. Hopefully next time it will be nicer weather – and a Thursday! My word you have been busy, so much crafting and such a varied array of it too. Sorry I only made it brief on my blog but I was so tired and had to do it late Tuesday. Blessings, Neet 3 ps your day out took in some of y favourite places – Beddgelert and Porthmadog and on to Caernarfon. Lovely.

    Super photos, glad you were able to add them today. Blogging can be a right pickle sometimes. My son’s driving lessons are fine and he has driven me around quite a bit too. His theory test is booked for July and hopefully the practical soon after. The sunflower is sprouting its next set of leaves and will soon have outgrown the CD case!. Thanks for visiting me yesterday, BJ#32

    Hey Margaret, thanks for swinging by. I will happily come and sort your card blanks LOL..I am an organise it geek!! I LOL at your comment about my desk shot, I never thought about it like that..but you are right it does look like Monopoly in progress! Love that you bumped into a WOYWWer, that is fun. I love your part of the world. My parents let me choose where I wanted to go to celebrate passing my a-levels (many many years ago) and I chose North wales..because I always wanted to do to Ffestiniog Cx #50

    Wonderful to see you today! Fabulous that you ran into Neet! So glad to hear that John is not in the hospital and that he is able to get around on his mobility scooter. What a nice outing you had. Sorry you couldn’t get inside the church though. Hugs! #61

    that is so fun that you live close enough together that you run into online friends in person. I had left some of my dead heading deliberately so the birds could fight over it for nesting, but I am going to clean it up as soon as it warms up again here. we are having tease you with sunshine while you are at work and freeze your fingers off cold wind when you get home stuff. soon soon we will all be wishing it wasn’t so hot again so, I am trying to enjoy it all. thanks for the earlier visit, ~Stacy #55

    Fab pics from your mobile workdesk! Looks like you had great weather. We got married at Plas Brondanw Gardens not far from Porthmadog and it was a wonderful sunny April day. Had a hectic day wet-felting loads of new background pieces so just dropping in for a quick snoop! Thanks for stopping by my desk earlier. Happy crafting, Max #37 🙂

    Sounds like bliss – and on a warm day too; iit’s been very cold here since, am starting to get very sick of it! we need a pic of John on his hot new wheels! And fancy seeing Neet just out of the blue like that; I’m jealous!!

    Hello Margaret – glad all is well with you and John. Spent many holidays in Wales and visited most of the places you describe. I’m still getting to grips with photos etc – puts me off posting at times. How lovely you bumped into Neet. I hadn’t touched our garden until last week – since Autumn that is so know what you mean re Jungle Clearance 🙂 Anne x # 56

    Well, it sounds like you’ve been having a lovely time – the pictures are lovely and with scenery like that who needs a desk! So glad you are up and running properly again (computer wise I mean!). Hope you have a good week, and many thanks for stopping by my desk earlier, Diana #22

    Hi Margaret, I’m glad all is well. And I’m also glad you are having decent weather. Your photos look beautiful. You live in a very beautiful country. I have fond memories of your neck of the wood. We visited Ffestiniog railway years ago when i was young.And we go to Ffald-y-brenan for our spiritual retreat. Thank you for visiting, Happy WOYWW, Have a good week too, Lisca

    Good morning Margaret. I am so glad that you had a good week with John and getting out in the nice days that have come. You have been busy making lots and your pictures posted make me long for the warm summer days which I hope come soon here but have been lucky no snow as it snowed where my DH is last week. Have a fantastic week and thanks for the visit earlier. Hugs~Anne L#14

    Beautiful views. I’m glad Spring finally made it to you. I think it’s coming here – the trees finally seem to be popping with green. What fun to meet Neet and her husband. Glad to hear you are having some time to craft! Have a great week Sharon K #46
    Wed, 27 Apr 2016 13:21:21

    Hi both. It’s so good to hear you are both getting out and about. We often visit the places you mention but I doubt I would recognise you if we bumped into each other lol How lovely to see Neet and her hubby. I plan to have a box full of toys made by the time Milly arrives so she should have plenty of toys to demolish 🙂 Have a great week. Hugs, Annie x #10

    Hallo there. Had o smile, because I also went to Llandadno last week end, only difference was this was a quaint little seaside town near Cape Town in South Africa. Beautiful place, obviously names after the one you went to. Happy WOYWW! Tertia #26

    Morning, love those pics, but beginning of Spring? Not if you have the same weather that we got this morning, snow, hail, thunder lightning. Chris #20
    Wed, 27 Apr 2016 08:37:55

    Oh, it really is God’s Own Country up there…I know those places so well and what a beautiful day to experience them. And I’m so jealous you met Neet!! What a coincidence :-). Hugs, LLJ 16 xxx

    We did our courting in Porthmadog as my brother in law was in charge of Greenacres at the time. His daughter is now, some 35 years later. We were in the beautiful town of Montgomery last week. Enjoy yourselves Lynn // 12 x

    Hi Margaret nice pictures there very pretty butterfly. At least you have plants to trim back my garden is a lot of dirt that will finally get some tlc to become a garden. Eventually the DH would love to see no grass but we will see how that will go I think in the backyard I would like a little bit lol so he will have use for his push mower lol Happy WOYWW hugs Nikki 7
