It’s ages since I’ve written a blog post…mainly because we haven’t been to visit many places recently and although retired I still seem so busy with little time to spare!
I attend art classes at Gelli Aur (Golden Grove) run by Wendy Powell-Jones. Together with the local committee of the British Heart Foundation (who provided delicious refreshments throughout the day) she had planned an exhibition and sale of the work of her students at Gelli Aur last Saturday. All her students had donated their hand made Christmas cards to be sold at the event. It was a lovely day for everyone. …more details and photos of this on Wendy Powell Jones website http://www.wendypowell-jones.me.uk/art-show-event-in-aid-of-british-heart-foundation/ Gosh there are some talented artists around!
Back at home..all the visitors to the cottage have now left…just like the swallows really…hopefully they’ll all be back in the summer!
Our back path was badly damaged by the winter frost and ice so we have had it all relaid with lovely stones…no more puddles.
Outside the cottage back door there was a similar problem with loose pointing and wobbly stones so the brilliant builders are still at it …digging, laying and pointing new stones. It isn’t finished yet but looks great already!
Now you’ll have to keep watch for the photo of the finished patio as it isn’t completed yet so keep reading the blog please and then let me know what you think.
Hopefully, the visitors to the cottage next spring and summer will see a great difference and enjoy sitting out on the patio and basking in the glorious sunshine…which is definitely going to come in summer 2013!
