    Cath and Jo’s Wedding on Xmas Eve

    December 24, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 8 °C

    This was an incredible, last minute secret wedding in Mold, North Wales between 2 of my oldest friends Cath and Jo.
    The morning dawned with a mixture of sun and cloud.
    After a family breakfast, K and I headed into Mold with a shopping list of beaded pins for the bouquets, a cake stand, a pair of sparkly tights for Ellen, and a car wash due to yesterday’s prolonged drive through muddy lanes. We couldn’t have the brides arriving covered in mud!
    The next 2 hours flew by and many random shops, K needing an Interpreter over the beaded pins and a car wash later we finally got back to the girls at 1pm.
    K kindly took Ellen to look at the horses whilst I jumped in the shower, got ready and made sure I had the rings and the girls were all good.... despite looking extremely nervous they were totally ready before I was.
    K and E got back with stories of the horses and before long it was 2pm.... time for some photos at home and then Into the car for the 15 min drive to Mold Registry office just below Theatre Clwyd...... lots of nerves!!!
    There was a beautiful light as we arrived and after a few photos outside where poor E felt freezing it was inside for last minute toilet breaks and then we were off.
    Cath and Jo had a v small and intimate ceremony with just K and I, Ellen and then Andrea ( jo’s uni friend with her husband Neil and 2 boys, Alfie and Oliver). Phil taking the photos finished off the small entourage.
    It was all v lovely and I had a nervous moment when I couldn’t get the ring box open but Ellen helped and all was good!!
    After the lovely ceremony it was back home to the girls house for bubbly and party food all ready prepared.
    Sadly at 5.30pm we had to say our sad goodbyes as we had a 6 hour drive home to Cornwall.
    The traffic was non- existent and seeing we made the motorways as planned we actually got home at 11pm.
    The flat was clean, tidy and ready for Xmas day trmw.
    Congratulations Cath and Jo!!

    Chester

    December 1, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 4 °C

    We spent three nights at Chester, arriving early afternoon after a leisurely drive up from Birmingham.
    We stayed on a farm site to the west of the city and walked into the centre of the town on two days along the River Dee - the northern end of the Wales Coastal Path.
    The City is charming with a long history stretching back to the Romans. The heart of the City is surrounded by ancient City Walls and there are some wonderful old buildings remaining. The Christmas market in front of the cathedral was in full swing with familiar wares on sale as the others we have been visiting.
    We walked the city walls one day which are well preserved and intact, they offered interesting views of the city and its immediate environs.
    Outside the city walls lie the ancient race course and canals linking Chester to Elsmere Port and to Wolverhampton via the Shropshire Union Canal.

    Hope, Großbritannien

    May 28, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

    Wie sich am Morgen herausstellte, habe ich auf den letzten hohen Bergen geschlafen, da ich am nächsten Morgen ganz entspannt 7 km runterrollen konnte.
    Ich hatte Glück mit der Routenwahl , da ich anstatt auf der großen Straße fahren zu müssen, einen kleine weg an einem Kanal fand. Dieser hört zwar manchmal auf und wurde zu einem Trampelpfad, aber besser als die große Straße!
    Als ich hundert Kilometer zusammen hatte, suchte ich nach einer Farm auf der ich bleiben konnte. Nach drei vergeblichen, fand ich schließlich eine auf der ich mein Zelt aufstellen konnte. Ich durfte direkt neben dem Fischteich Zelten. Es war sehr schönes Wetter und ich konnte den restlichen Nachmittag entspannen.
    Am Abend probierte ich mal was anderes zum kochen aus. Es gab grünen Spargel, Garnelen, Ziegenkäse mit Reis, sehr lecker.

    Queensferry

    March 7, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 7 °C

    Like in the Adèle song.
    Heading over to Llandudno Junction to deliver training tomorrow, and so so so SO tired I just cannot drive any more. Am less than an hour away though so that's manageable for the morning.

    Edit... It's not an Adèle song at all. I was VERY tired.
