The weather in Wales

Gosh, already a month has flown by since my last post. It has been a very mixed month with most of it spent trying to keep my head above water. But I would like to share some of the beautiful moments I had while away on Anglesey in October. The weather was very mixed with glorious sunshine one moment and then crashing storms the next. It made for an interesting week! The nicest thing is knowing that the weather is always driven really quickly by the strong sea wind so if a day starts off wet then it very rarely stays that way all day.

Blue skies. It could be spring :-) (one with a very wonky horizon. Clearly wasn’t paying attention!)IMG_1097


Stormy grey skies.


Storms over Snowdonia.


There was also this amazing storm. The light was just stunning with the land lit by vivid shards of sun against the steel grey storm clouds behind.

Which led to a rainbow.

There were beautifully lit clouds as the sun dropped below the horizon.

And wonderful warm sunsets.

It sounds daft but couldn’t believe how much further round the sun sets at this time of year. It is just not something I notice when I’m home.

I thoroughly love the spring and summer in Wales but the weather in the Autumn was quite something and I would definitely go back at this time of year again.

For now….

…you will have to forgive me if my posts are a little sporadic. Life here without my small sweet hound is proving harder than I ever expected. I miss him so very, very much.

I have some photos from my Wales trip to post which I will get to next but in the meantime ……fanfare please….the heel on my sock has been turned and I am winging my way down the foot :-)

Making progress

I did most of this whilst sat looking out at the sea with my small hound chilling at my feet so it has become a very special sock indeed.

P.S. My 52 weeks of happy are on a bit of a break at the moment. I am sure they will be back at some point.

P.P.S Thank to everyone for their comments and support. It is very much appreciated.
