While I'm drying...

I like to sit with a towel on my head and a bathrobe on after a shower, looking at t'internet...just getting dry...just for 5 minutes. So while I'm drying today I thought I'd do a quick blog. As you do.

Tina and her lovely daughter came by to visit on their way home to the South-East of England from beautiful West Wales where they've been camping. I know Tina as she has attended a couple of the Scrappers Unlimited Design seminars in Reading this year, and it's always a pleasure to make new friends from teaching these events. She's a lovely lady...quite fab...and has a great sense of humour.

Anyway...Celyn and I took them to Swansea harbour where it became apparent Tina is a total yacht anorack (she sails, and knows the names of all those little boats with sails on ...I teased her but it's pretty impressive though!). Then we had the obligatory Joe's ice-cream and I delighted in her face when she took her first mouthful. It truly is the best ice-cream in the world! And then we spent a delightful hour or two on Caswell Beach ("my beach" Celyn always tells people) where our daughters, who are only about 2 years apart were told not to get too wet...and they were completely soaked to the skin within 15 minutes and covered in sand. LOL. Ah's what childhood's all about.

And the sun shined gloriously all afternoon. Lovely.

And I got some lovely photos, but I won't post any piccies yet though, as I want to ask permission from Tina to publish her daughter first.

And today Husband is laying our new patio - woo hoo. It's horrid weather today...grey, cloudy, and raining heavily in showers. And he's soaked. visitor (Katie-Jane) has just turned up half an hour early (inbetween that paragraph and this'n). And me drying, with a towel and bathrobe, blogging.

It's what Saturdays are all about.
