So that lasted long

Fresh Start#Blogging Fail

I really did start this blog with high expectations. I thought I was going to post twice weekly and I had all these ideas. But I failed!

I was going to write in the evenings and take pictures at the weekends, I was going to connect with new people. Instead I’ve watched Gilmore Girls on repeat (Errr no I’m not a complete loser).

This blogging thing is actually pretty difficult. Bloggers make it look so easy. Photography is hard too, even with my super duper old photography a level (I cant remember anything, not a thing)!

I would like to try again. I want to post about my adventures and look back and reminisce years later.

So take two…….


The Weekend

This weekend I visited my home town. Lily and I make the trip to Shropshire at least once a month to visit the family, this time it was my mum’s birthday. She has turned the big 6-5 and therefore treated it as a special occasion.

Saturday consisted mostly of pottering around the town and soaking up the glorious spring sunshine in the beer garden of our local pub and a picnic in the park. It was a beautiful day full of happiness. However later in the afternoon mum got a twig in her eye and we ended the day in a&e but that’s another story…..

Sunday we were supposed to be visiting the beach but because of the minor eye incident the day before we decided to stay close to home and visit a nearby Welsh village (town?) Llangollen. This village has always been a favourite of mine ever since I was small; I remember Sunday afternoons with my grandparents visiting here. My granddad AKA Dada would always buy me an ice-cream and we would sit overlooking the river. This was quite a regular occurrence as it was also a favourite of my Dada’s.

Llangollen’s main feature is its trains and canal.

The horse drawn canal boats are my favourite, I do wonder the horses are strong enough to pull the canal boats and not hurt themselves but they assured me they are.

And after that it was time to go home for a Sunday roast and the long drive back to the west country.

I hope you all had a beautiful weekend.
