A little play.......a little work.....

Yes, I know! I haven't been keeping up with my bloggy stuff again....

...but I've been a tad busy, with a little bit of play (well, quite a lot of play actually!)...

...and a bit of work that was very enjoyable indeedy!

We've been Gladdyvanning in Snowdonia for the last two weeks and have managed to visit a number of places that had been on my "1001 places to visit/things to do before I die" list.

The first one was a visit to Portmeirion....





Quite a bonkers little place....but absolutely beautiful...and such lovely weather too!

The following day we went through Beddgelert, where we just HAD to stop for refreshments by the lovely old bridge....





 ...then crossed over a not-so-old bridge onto Ynys Mon (Anglesey).....



...to visit THIS



Bryn Celli Ddu....a neolithic chamber tomb. Mmmmmmmmm......another one crossed off the list (along with Barclodiad-Y-Gawres further on around the coast).

After a few more days of wandering around some of the most spectacular countryside.....

...I had my first bit of "work" with the delightful "Aberystwyth Stitchers"....

...with whom I had a thoroughly enjoyable day offering a helping hand while they made some "Lavender and Lace" panels!










And here they are....smiling widely behind a table covered with their gorgeous stitching.

Well done ladies.....I'm looking forward to coming back!
