I took Ben to Ponty for his check up and all is well, came back and we went for a walk.
I put the washing through the machine and got it out on the whirly gig. Then went off to Ammanford to do a bit of CS shopping and find a pair of gardening boots.
Ben enjoyed his walk round the town and was ready for a stretch out in the sun once we got back.
Later I took him out over the top field and he had a romp with two border collies, one black and white one red and white.
I am not sure quite how it happened but I got involved with the Welsh version of an Irish wake. The family of the Black and White Collie had lost their Matriarch last week and the funeral is tomorrow. Now I have only met the husband and one of the sons while walking Ben but was gathered up into the fold and I am going to the funeral tomorrow. As it happens all the people that I have met in the village are going. I can not take it all in, but it seems that I have been accepted already.
The friendliness has been a bit overwhelming but I am glad of it. I am sure that I am a source of speculation but I can live with that.
On to other things.
Yesterday I went off to Cardigan to visit James and Cerys and had a lovely afternoon. On the journey back I went via Cernarth and stopped at the famous Falls.
The long shot.
The close up.
A little information for the tourists.
And last but not least the bridge.
I have driven by the falls so many times and the light has been totally wrong for photos, or the car park has been heaving. Sunday evening everything was right and I was so pleased to get my photos.
They do not do it justice, it is delightful and the village has grown around the site. There are more places to eat than you can shake a stick at and it costs £2.50 to park, but still well worth a visit, I hasten to add that I did not pay to park, the kiosk was closed.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. I begin to feel a part of the community.
2. Ben is looking good and will have his stitches out next Monday.
3. The sun has shone in all it,s glory most of the day.
4. Francesca is coming for the weekend.
5. I have unpacked the new machine.
I watched the DVD that came with the machine and did intend to try it out this afternoon. That has now been postponed until Wednesday.
Ben is absolutely shattered from all his play, Collies have much longer legs than him, and is snoozing beside me.
I am going to watch a TV program later about life on benefits in Wales. I have seen a few trailers and it looks interesting. If it turns out to be rubbish I will just take myself off to bed.
On that note I better straighten up the kitchen and get into my PJ,s ready to indulge in a bit of hooky. I must remember to post a pic of my cushion tomorrow, and the new machine.
