Birthday Girl


Lovely step Grandaughter turned nine this weekend. As a treat we all went out in Damnvan1 for a birthday picnic by the sea. We were very fortunate as the rain stopped and the sun shone as we drove up to the coast. Great fun was had with a birthday banner over the windscreen, balloons and party poppers. We finished our buffet picnic party with chocolate cake sporting nine candles. The grand finale was a Knickerbocker Glory at a local ice cream parlour. Predictably she couldn’t eat much of it but apparently I’m told that a Knickerbocker Glory is compulsory to celebrate turning nine whole years old.

Muddling along on the craft front at the moment as I’ve been trying to finish my new craft room. I’ve never before decorated a whole room on my own but I’m delighted with the results. The desk arrives tomorrow so nearly there.

One of our favourite places for a walk is around the Great Orme in Llandudno North Wales. The round round is 4.5 miles long and gently undulating. There is little traffic and a cafe halfway round which is always a good plan. The cafe is aptly named The Rest and be Thankful-and I always am.
On many days walking around the Orme you could be anywhere in the World. Well come on use your imagination! It may be blowing a hooley, pouring with rain or the sun beating down on the back of your anorak,but it’s gorgeous. Benji always enjoys the air and walking along the sea wall. I always enjoy my cup of tea at the end
By the way Llandudno is an old fashioned AKA Traditional Victorian sea side town. It is complete with a pier and a lovely crescent of Victorian hotels along the sea front. It also sells candy floss, rock and ice creams what a lovely day out for the child in us all.
