It’s ages since I’ve written on my blog and  although all our lovely visitors have all returned to their own homes for the winter  there is still  a great deal that keeps me busy! We’ve emptied the cottage in preparation for the decorators to arrive and give it a magic coat of paint to spruce it all up for 2016…our 10th year! I had no idea how long it would take to empty the cottage  but it’s all done now. Actually the decorators arrived last week and gave the  outside window frames  and barge boards a once over and then the glorious weather changed  from sun to rain- typical! They will return when the rain leaves!

We went for a walk on Llangadog Common yesterday. The river Sawdde had risen incredibly quickly  due to the cloud bursts we have had and the river looked quite a torrent and sounded even worse!

    The river Sawdde in full flood. How dramatic!! Thank you once again for the photographs and for keeping me informed about your very interesting activities.

    Thanks Marie. We were very surprised to see the river so high and now with this further rain it will truly be torrential- I hope it doesn’t cause any flooding anywhere.
