H.O.W. Come Sit By Me A While :New Years Day here in Cilgerran, Wales.
Yesterday was January 1st 2013 and time to begin our 365 challenge.
There was something I'd been meaning to do for a long while and that was to call in to see my neighbour Lillian.
She lost her husband a few months ago and each day we say 'Hi' over the garden fence with the usual:
"I will call in and have that cuppa with you very soon."
The other comment was that we knew where each other was if we needed anything and Lillian called over daily with her friend who just lived a few doors up,plus had other visitors too..
Anyway yesterday morning I decided to call over to wish her a Happy New Year instead of sharing the greeting over that garden fence !!!
I also stayed to have that 'cuppa' and it was so nice.
I then made myself a promise to call in maybe once a week from now on.
Life is too short for all these 'one days'!!
Myself and Dai have grandkids Ellie and Charlie staying with us until next Monday and yesterday afternoon we went for a walk around Cilgerran ; the small village we live in.
Mother Nature's true beauty is in abundance all around and I took many pics with my brand new camera(a Christmas pressie from Dai)!!
It's 'girls and their gifts' instead of 'boys and their toys' for once !!Ha ha!!!
Now then bring out your drinks ; the plate of my Christmas Cake and Mince Pies too !!!
A nice crisp morning so put your gloves and scarves on too!!
What's that you said???
Oh yes it is certainly uncanny as you say that no matter how cold the day is as soon as we sit out here the cold instantly disappears!!! One of life's magical gifts I think!!
Oh how I love magical times !!
Oh silly me of course you do!!!
Are we seated comfortably ???Good then I shall begin!!
I have to ask you a question first.Do you think I sound very bossy ?
Dai often says I sound like a strict headmistress !! Ha ha ha!!!
Now then enough waffling and here we go !!!!!
