On one of the last days of his Easter stay with us, we mentioned ‘how about a … More Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch……..
So this week has been another strange week- in fact March has been a strange month. Partly due to the cold- the snow -how long it’s hung around, and then it came back.

We had parked our car nearer … More Sorry it’s a bit of a long tale!
