Snowdonia

Hugo managed to get us online...
 Our ISP supplies us with mobile WIFI, but it took a bit of working out!
 So here's the story so far...

It was a really long journey on Friday – nearly 11 hours on the road, but we had decided to drive the length of Wales, instead of taking the motorway & the scenery since arriving in Wales has been spectacular!

 We love being in the mountains & our destination certainly hasn’t disappointed. Far from it, it’s a beautiful place & we are having a fantastic time!

Snowdonia

It had been 29 degrees in the car for the main part of our journey, so it was such a relief when we were finally able to get out, explore & potter about.



Our peaceful haven amongst the mountains...

Which is just perfect...

And we are very happy to be here...

Our caravan has surpassed our expectations – it’s cosy, in a perfect location & surrounded by beautiful, peaceful countryside. What’s more, we are only a short walk from Beddgelert & 10 minutes from one of the footpaths to the Snowdon summit...
It's so wonderful to be waking up every morning to such wonderful views!



Having some leisure time together is wonderful. We are already enjoying relaxing, walking, reading, chatting & laughing together again. It just feels so long since we last had some quality time.
We feel very lucky that we enjoy each other’s company & that we laugh lots – we really do know how to have a good time, but the best moments are always those that don’t cost much...

Bye for now,

Kay, Sime & Hugo

Attractive publish. You have an worthy of note review on this topic and I shall be signing in to your feed with wish you will post yet again shortly on parallel subjects. But I am curious on what your article sources for the post are? All my appreciation

As a final point , give permission me thank you for your tolerance with my English as (I'm persuaded you have figured this by now,), English is not my initial language thus I am utilizing Google Translate to build out how to note down what I truly plan to say.

Nettles

Our garden yesterday. Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now. This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower. ~ Edward Thomas ~ Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem! Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine... Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food. Nettles are ric

Diet And Drugs

Some of you know about my fight with Graves Disease, an auto immune system disorder, which causes an overactive thyroid. Since I was diagnosed 7 years ago, I have made it my business to know everything I possibly could about the condition & this has probably saved my life. I have blood tests on a regular basis & in November last year, I was told that my T4 levels are normal & again in January the same.  My thyroid stimulating hormone was finally starting to work too, after 7 years of lying dormant, so I suggested I came off the anti thyroid drug & my GP's response was to continue for a while longer. A month ago, I rang my GP & suggested again that I come off the drug or at least halve it, as I was feeling so well  & was concerned about the drug pushing me into being under active. Again, she said to be patient & they would send for me when it's time for a blood test. I don't normally do as I'm told, but decided to stick with it a b

Taking The Plunge

Life is set to change again for us. We have had a great time entertaining many B&B guests, but now have decided to stop & concentrate on the things that are far more important. Firstly, ourselves... Sharing our home with many strangers is quite exhausting & Sime in particular has worn himself out giving his all, something neither of us had really noticed until we stopped. Secondly, Bebe (Sime's mum) is going to be moving in with us... Her dementia is progressing, though the conditions she was continuing to live in were obviously not helping. We feel she has been let down by the social care support team, her carers seemed to be excellent on the surface, but in reality - she has been badly neglected. On our last visit, we found her flat in a terrible state. The cleaner had disappeared, her hairdresser had stopped going in & some of the carers didn't even bother to feed her! On top of all this, she has been phoning the police about her hot water &am
