Holiday update

We've had a great time in Wales, a bit of time just me and DH and a few days with Philly and her boyfriend. I managed to get quite a few things done, mainly because I have had to sit still a bit as my back has been giving me a lot of trouble. I did go the docs before the holiday and he gave me some anti-inflamatories and some strong painkillers.  Unfortunately the tablets really upset my insides and I felt like my body fromthe waist down was trying to get to Australia lol. Anyway I stopped the tablets and things are improving, still have back ache though :(

So the things I got done were:

firstly catching up with my post - I sent letters and gifts to friends I had neglected a while, both home and abroad :)

secondly I made a huge amount of cards for the church

and thirdly I started making the church crosses - none quite finished so photos will have to follow.

I spent a lot of time at St Cadfan's this time, helping with the teas and coffees as it was the Flower Festival - the church looked gorgeous.

I made cakes too for the tea/coffee stall (they were actually bargain packet mixes from Sainsburys but they turned out great)

We had some fun on the beach and on a few trips out, especially to Llanfair PG which has the longest place name in the world.

I'm not sure what's happening the rest of the hols - I have many things plans, jobs at home, friendsto see, places to visit but I'll have to see how my back goes before making any real plans. The re-painting of the garden fences is definately a no go but I might get some of the other garden jobs done.

Have a great summer, thanks for reading my blog, hope you liked the photos x x
