Just a quick visit to say that I am in, online and almost unpacked. I have 2 houses to view today and more lined up for next week. The grass may be green in my valley but I am not about to let it grow under my feet.
I will be posting reams of photos, the village is in a very pretty setting in the Amman Valley, guarded by The Black Mountain. I am looking a bit further south for a new home, easy access to Cardiff and Swansea and close to the motorway for visits to Cardigan.
Francesca is arriving Saturday morning for a few days and will then go to Cardigan for the rest of the week. It is Junior's Birthday on the Thursday so a visit to somewhere suitable is on the menu and then he has a party on the Saturday.
Ben and I have done lots of exploring and I do not think we have done the same walk twice, there are loads of footpaths snaking around the area. Last night, after dinner, we found a path that led through a small marsh and onto a disused road. We saw 3 horses and a Shetland pony and were gone almost an hour.
I have met many people and all are very friendly, I have been invited in for coffee and tea by several. I went to an Open Garden on Sunday and met a woman from a nearby village, she clued me in on all the craft shops in a 30 mile radius. I went to one in Pontardulais yesterday and 2 balls of yarn fell into my hands, luckily I loved the colours, the shop is run by a lovely couple and they sell items in their shop for crafters as long as you buy the materials from them.
I have to go now, Ben needs a walk and my first viewing is at 11:00
BTW, thank you for all your comments, I will be answering them later and catching up on oodles of blog posts.
