Five days in Wales

We decided to take a Shearings Self Drive Monday to Friday break at Llandudno, and set off early to make the most of the break. Two hours into our journey the back wheel on the Land Rover ceased and we had to wait to be towed home on a flat bed trailer. Once home after a lot of messing about we had a quick cuppa and moved everything into my car and set off again.. The 3 1/2 hour journey took us 12 1/2 hours!!

The Hotel had made us sandwiches as we missed dinner, so we crashed for the night.
The weather was really cold but the sun shone almost every day so we had some nice car trips.
Our room had a nice bay window where we could sit and watch the world go by.

The homebound journey was also eventful, we decided to stay off Motorways and take the A5, with in 20 minutes of leaving Llandudno we had to divert round tiny little lanes due to a major accident, and then we hit lots of road works, so again a long journey home but not as bad as getting there.

Chris is now taking the Land Rover to bits.. there are two wheels in the back garden so I expect we are in for some major expense!  BUT we had a great holiday.

Bet Chris is happy now he has something to do, fixing the landrover, now he is retired, also he should make sure he always has that lovely quilt in the landrover as coming home on a trailer is becoming quite a habit."..... But glad you had a good holiday in spite of everything

What a week of ups and downs

Sunday started so well as I went to church but then I hit an uneven curb in the church yard. The damage did not look too bad but it ruined ...
