Ann’s birthday today!
..when we woke up around 7am, it was snowing.
I co-ordinated the family and we all clubbed together to her the top-of-the-range Tom Tom portable sat-nav.
Separately, I bought her a leather case and a docking station, so it can be charged outsde the car.
Nicki C bought her a beatiful necklace. So did Jane, plus a bracelet.
After brekky we headed for Caernarvon. Boy, it was cold!! The snow turned to rain and we arrived about 10.30. We took a flying visit round the castle and then headed for the nearest tea shoppe Ann did the postcards and we then headed for the centre of town.
12.00 Then, a shortish drive across the Britannia Bridge to Beaumaris Castle (English Heritage). It’s still cold but the Sun is trying to break through.
12.55 We arrived at Plas Newyyd (means ‘new place’). It was a great place – lived in ’til the 70s – It had long mural in the main room by Whistler. Fantastic! A view of the water outside showing loads of detail.
A great tea-shoppe too that doubled as a second-hand book-shop too.
14.30 On our way back now via the Menai Bridge. We stopped of in Betws-y-coed
..and then back to the to the Pub for a read and final meal there.
We travel back home tomorrow.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
