We’ve been in Wales for just over a month. It’s been a little busy, so busy that Blogging’s been the last thing on my mind.
however it would be a shame not to record some of the goings on, so here are some photos.
First sunny day in full ownership...
Cold, but stunning landscape.
Quarrymen cottages. Trefor is a Quarry village, it still operates but in a much reduced capacity.
Nanou and Grandad helped me with the kids, the dog and the move in while Ali went on a jolly for a week to the states.
Kids doing kid stuff in our large garden
Welsh lawnmower keeping the drive groomed
More fauna, this time a heard of eight wild billy goats. Seemed amazing at first, until they decided to break into our garden to kill our fruit trees -not ok!!
Golly struggling with the fauna that we inherited with the house
my first self driving petrol mower. It and my chainsaw were not working at this stage and driving me crazy!
occasional interludes to pretty places, with alcohol and sand! Our house is just over the bit of land directly above the boat furthest to the left.
while our garden is pretty well maintained, a lot of our land looks like this:
and this. In fact this tree crashed into a dry stone wall which, in turn smashed into an irrigation tunnel and blocked it which has worsened our already marshy marsh/land
Spring! Making it easier to figure out what trees we have
Our house today
and more views (old greenhouse in garden and view east to the hills)
and another view:
- Goliath not escaping, but avoiding the sun on this scorching 10 degrees day.
- the rented turf cutter (otherwise known as the earthworm lacerator) and the resulting chaos.
after another tough day hard landscaping, a quick escape to the beach. It’s just gorgeous here...
Tomorrow we swap the earthworm lacerator for a digger and a dumper truck!! Don’t even need a license apparently should be an exciting few days. I’ll post some pictures...
