Welsh break

We are back from the Welsh trip. It was a nice break away and good to see Son-of-Furtheron again. We all piled into his student flat when we arrived and demanded cups of tea, the women were appalled at the state of the kitchen and went into cleaning frenzy mode. All very funny.

We visited Bwlch Nant yr Arian which is a Welsh Forestry Commission site noted for it's Red Kite population and we got to see loads of these majestic birds close up. We also visited Aberaeron which has already become one out favourite places to visit... esp the tea shop and the Welsh Cakes!

We got to meet and have a meal with Girlfriend-of-Son-of-Furtheron. Lovely girl who has clearly got the measure of our boy... "Oh it's just food, guitars and occasional geeky Physics with him." Spot on!

All too soon we were on the journey back which given we were crossing the Dartford bridge at 8 o'clock in the evening I thought it'd be reasonable. Oh No - 7 miles of jams and nearly an hour stuck there. Madness!

Saturday S-of-F and I went to see Judas Priest at Wembley... gig report to follow.


  1. Glad you had a good trip. Welshcakes, mmm.

    As for the gig report: I'm thinking you enjoyed it.

  2. @Preacherman - Sheep? Only several million - we did see some small lambs which please my daughter with the "Aaaahhhhh!" factor
