Gone to.....

I`m off to Wales
today, for a couple of weeks of camping and to look at the sheep. The fleece for Huw the Sheep came from a sheep on a farm not three miles from the campsite. So who knows...I might see him.

There has been a bit of doubt as to whether this holiday was going to happen...over the last week we have had an attempted break in, a heatwave (In Scotland??????), Hubby has been snowed under at work, the kittens have arrived and, crucially, my car was hit by a dozy female muppet while she was attempting to park twenty feet in front of mine. Looks like it`s going to be an insurance write-off, and of course it was the tow car for the trailer tent, eek! so on Saturday there was a mad scramble to get Hubby`s car fixed up with towball and bike racks etc. (Whether it can actually get that far while towing 600Kg of trailer tent is another thought. Will let you know.)

So apologies to my lack of blogging. I have been harrassed! Also many apologies to Sue..I didn`t get back to you about Colinette because (1) I didn`t know till yesterday if we were going to Wales at all (2) We may not be staying the two weeks planned because of Hubby`s work so (3) I have no flip of an idea as to whether I`ll get to Colinette or not, so didn`t want to arrange something and then have it fall through.

Off to jam everything in the car. Did I mention the boot of Hubby`s car is considerably smaller than that of my my Renault, so I can`t take the little spinning wheel? Baaaaaaah!

Have a good time (if you get there) lots to see apart from Colinette ;-)
Will meet up next Skipnorth and Woolfest - might even know how to spin by then ;-)

I would love to be able to dash off to Wales and make it sound so easy and casual.

I too have been plagued by unusually warm weather and a "dozy" young driver (but she got our mailbox instead of my car, so it wasn't too bad). If only I could go to Wales and look at the sheep.

North Wales? Beautiful. Haven't been for many years...but lovely memories.

Safe journey.

an attempted BREAK-IN??

I know all about heat waves - check our temps on my blog - ugh...

Well -- one way to look at it is you got all the bad stuff out before the trip so you will have a super trip.... ever the optimist here :D

Boy that's a lot of stuff to deal with! Gah!

I hope that's the last of the bad luck string. It most likely is. Have a good time, and you are visiting a place that my Great Grannie called Home.. So fine... Hope you find the sheep in question. How cool.
