Beck into England

So - our first day in Wales.
and we headed back to England so Al could drop some work samples at the couriers.

Once that was accomplished -
we had a couple of hours at the RSPB Burton Mere -
a lovely autumn walk.




We were back in Llandudno for the afternoon
for the usual crepes -
and a walk on the prom
{Ben was NOT impressed!}

Megs in Sheffield

Megs seems to be having a splendid time at Uni in Sheffield -
Not that I have much photographic evidence -
However today she went to a walk with friends Katie and Amber - 
and she treated me to a group selfie.

Green Belt

Ben's been going to Judo lessons since he was 8.

He may never be a world class fighter 
{he may never actually win a fight by an ippon}

But today at Judo Camp he graded onto green.

Perseverance pays off!


Visiting Megs

Megs plan for this weekend was to visit best friend Jamie at her Uni  in York -
but when Jamie went home for the weekend - 
a slot opened up for us to pop over the hills
{and deliver a LOT of quorn for her freezer}
so armed with a freshly baked chocolate cream cake -
we shot over the Snake Pass.

We had coffee student style perched on her bed
drove her to collect a parcel, then into town.

Fed her at Cafe Rouge -
bought her books and hot chocolate at Waterstones
and took her back to her flat.
Before she threw us out once again!

Good times!
