Dear Diary

Today has not really gone to plan and now I am trying to climb out of the doldrums and am looking round for my next blog.
I have a stack of photo discs - records of past holidays - days out to remember and so I picked one at random and this is what came up.

A day to remember - the Santa Train at Llangollen - 3 grandchildren in toe - one a teenager determined not to be left out!. the day was made all the more exciting for us all -(we are all big kids at heart I think!)- because Thomas the Tank Engine was in town!
Llangollen is an incredibly beautiful little town with the River Dee scuttling through its centre. I have not yet been to the Eisteddfod - this is held annually - around July - it is on our to do list - perhaps this next year.

The above pic is a shot of the Victorian Weston Super Mare pier - this was taken before the fire - it has now been renovated - and reopened in October this year at a cost of 39 million pounds!

During our break at Weston Super Mare we spent some time in Glastonbury - so much to see and take in - the abbey is awe inspiring and there is so much history and legend everywhere you look - we were there pretty much all day but we did not climb up to the Tor - another visit is called for I think - if you click on the postcard above you can read about the Glastonbury Thorn - and also I have included a link -

We visited Gloucester Cathedral on the way back - it is huge - the cloisters were used in the Harry Potter films - the above picture is of the Blue Glass window in the South Ambulatory Chapel - it is a modern window by Tom Denney 1993 - I think it is very beautiful


  1. Sorry the link didn't activate something I did or didn't do !

  2. I'm so sorry you're feeling a bit down! Llangollen is lovely! Like your pics of Thomas the Tank. It's a bit mucky and murky here today! Call in when you're down this neck of the woods - would love to see you. xxx
