1. We need to go slowly as we don’t want to hit the Nelson-burnley-Blackburn-Wigan run until after the Easter holidays when the kiddiewinks are back at school …. And
2. Dai has to travel to Birmingham tomorrow for his mum’s funeral so we needed to be by a railway station
3. Where we are now is the most beautiful part of the Leeds & Liverpool so we want to make the most of it
Oh boy - what smashing weather last weekend ---- it was really hot. Out came the sunglasses, shorts and sandals - hurray, no socks and jumpies!! We even had salad for dinner ---- then it all disappeared and we had really cold winds. Nevermind, such wonderful sunshine is brilliant for a couple of days in April.
My cousin Alan and his wife Nicola saw the arrival of their first child end of last week - many congrats and a big big welcome to Sophie Mary.
Don’t think there is much else to tell you this week so here’s some Spring time photos …..
