Otherwise engaged

Sorry for the lack of updates recently: I've been busy chasing cows (don't ask), our main computer's video card has decided to fry itself, and I've generally been run off my feet.

On the nice side, though, I met Stense in North Wales on Monday, and we went for a knackering walk in the hills, followed by a pub lunch, followed by ice-creams and coffees in Llangollen.

Stense point-blank refused to let me take any photos of her this time, so here's an artist's impression:

Stense in Wales (artist's impression).

Personally, I don't think it does Stense any justice at all, but needs must where the Devil Gate Drive.

Jen and I are off to Anglesey for a week soon, so be good while we're away.

  1. We're off for a Highland steam train holiday very soon. I keep forgetting the name of the place until I sing the song that starts 'four and twenty virgins went off to.........'
    Do you know the answer, children?

  2. Enjoy Anglesey Richard - Plas Newydd well worth a visit if you've not been before.

  3. I don't know whether it's intentional but your artist's impression looks like one of those "Skegness at night" postcards - just a plain black rectangle. On that basis I can't help but agree that it doesn't do her justice!

  4. Sorry - left the room for a moment there.

    All visible now, only I think it must still be the wrong picture - it's headed "Stense in Wales" but includes nothing that could reasonably be confused with a sheep. Bizarre.
