Kinky Boots and Bad Food

Read most of today. It wasn’t the most pleasant day weather-wise but not bad. In the evening, I met TP and FP for dinner and then theatre. Looking for a place to eat always takes time and this time it was not a good choice. I met TP off her train. She had been to…

Hanging around the burbs

Can’t believe I am sitting here typing this with a cat on my knee as well as my computer. It’s not easy as she also keeps wanting attention! The other one, Silky, still avoids me and I only see her about once a day. Milky however, has decided that I’m her best buddy and my…

National Trust Visits

Beautiful day today and spent it at Erddig Castle and Quarry Bank Mill. I saw early on in the week that they had a beginners class for Nordic walking at Erddig so I decided to get up and go and see what it was. Had to leave home by 9 to get there at 10…

Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury again today. I only saw the prison on my last visit. Lots of churches and Tudor buildings. All ok this morning thank goodness. I had to get a bale of hay down for the sheep so I went further into the shed than I normally do and what do I spot but a nest…

A Sad Day

Disaster day today. I went out to feed the animals as soon as I got up and Rosie, the 13 year old sheep was lying on the ground and couldn’t get up.  I went straight back to the house to get my phone and call the vet. Boots and all. They said they would get…

Prison Tour Shrewsbury

Woke up hardly able to speak again. Could even tell one of the sheep off when she trad on my toe. Fortunately, I was wearing my boots so no harm done.  The wild birds seem to like the mixed seed but I put the last lot in today so they will have to choose another…

A Day in Chester

Such an interesting town with a complete town wall. It also had a huge Cathedral and a Falconry.The guided tour by Roger  from the Information Centre was excellent. I realised today why nothing is tasting good and I why even walking around Tesco’s I couldn’t think or see anything I fancied except chocolate! Because I…

More Wales

Chirk Castle and Powis Castle in Wales. They both have huge gardens. At Chirk Castle I did a tour which described how they cleaned everything! Up this morning about 8 and was instructed on the animals again and all other important stuff like where cock stops are and fuse boxes. They finally left about 1:30…

Wales Housesitting

Woke up and looked out of the window, fog as forecast so I decided not to hurry away in the hopes that the fog might clear. It didn’t but visibility was a bit better. Finally left Rickmansworth around 10:30. Headed off via M25, M40, M6 , A5 and then smaller roads. Was going well although…
