on saturday I drove to Wales...

... I very nearly didn't, because I'd spent all week dashing about the country on trains, and I really didn't feel like doing more dashing.

However, sometimes you just have to, because you know that when you get there, you'll appreciate having made the effort.

And when I lay in the back of the car with the door open, looking out on this (slightly murky, I admit) view, I knew I'd made the right decision.

Bizarrely, the only other photograph I took all weekend were of breakfast.

Strange, that.

Today has been altogether more mundane - a working at home day, with a short break in the middle for shifting a load of soil over that there hand-built wall.

'it'll only take you 5 minutes to shift that lot love' said the driver, as he drove off.

I should have given him a spade.

Needless to say, it took two of us a fair bit longer than 5 minutes, but it's all in place now (good job as it was blocking half the road). I'm planning to eat my breakfast outside on Sunday morning - think I'll make it??


  1. I think you should have given him a spade too!

    Can't wait to sit out next time I visit.

    You should have called in on Auntie Lou etc while you were in Wales, they're all there this week she could have made you breakfast. x

  2. I know but I had someone else with me, was at a party, and was there for less than 24 hours anyway (and I'd already driven for hours, so didn't fancy driving any more!). Maybe next time...

  3. That's a lot of soil........ Hope you get brekkie outside as planned

  4. quite the project. yes, soil blocking the street can be a real motivator. So can some of that nice looking cake you were eating last week too. I know what you mean about having many photos and no time to post about them. This month I am joining in on an "alphabet in august" posting series. I am a bit behind and I find I don't have photos for the words I am coming up with. So far I have only posted for A & B. Emily
