Wales this week

We're off on our second little coach trip this time to Wales.Wasn't sure what the weather was going to be like as the rains have finally arrived on Friday night - along with storms. I have to admit it was nice that the temperature cooled down but I was hoping it wouldn't rain too much as going on holiday in the rain isn't a lot of fun. The forecast didn't look too good for Newport. It did rain last night but today was really beautiful. We went to The Royal Mint which was well worth a visit. Later in the day we went to Cardiff. Mum and I spent most of our time at the castle. It was really beautiful. If nothing else going there had made this trio worth while! My legs feel a little wobbly from all the steps up to the very top of the keep!

So hot

Groan. It's too hot for me. The buses were so hot and sticky today. We took a trip to Colchester but it was a job to find somewhere to sit that was in the shade. Everybody looked hot lol. The castle had a lovely flower display that was very bright despite the heat and lack of rain.

We're in Devon!

We've spent this week on the first of our five day mini breaks. This first one was in Devon. The weather had been lovely. I've really enjoyed this trip. One of our days out included a quick visit to Dartmoor National Park. It was absolutely stunning. I would love to be able to go back and walk there at some point. On our free day we visited Torre Abbey Gardens. Really beautiful and peaceful.

Still Sunny Suffolk

Thanks for all the lovely comments. Just a quick update. Having a great time. Been out with mum and sisters and the weather had been absolutely gorgeous. We're off to Devon for a Monday to Friday holiday so hoping it stays decent. Time is just flying by! I can't believe how quickly it's going by.

Went to Southwold the other day. Cloudy to start but ended up lovely. My sister took us in the car. It's so nice to spend the day with her and Mum

Hot and Sunny in Suffolk!

Go England! I admit to being a little afraid to watch lol.

Anyway I made it safe and sound to England last Saturday. Plane was a little late but my flight was okay. The weather here has been gorgeous all week but everything is so dry! We went to Bury St. Edmunds yesterday and went to the Abbey gardens. There's a river at the back where ducks and things usually are but everything was so dry! There was no water at all under the bridge. I might be glad it's not raining but I think some is needed. Perhaps just at night?

We've had a busy week so taking a day inside today. I did some stitching, a little kit in the front of a mag l bought.

Mum surprised me with a lovely Easter egg. I know it's a little late ( but still in date) as I always complain I can't get them in the states. Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
