DC - The Pocket

Drawing challenge this weekend is The Pocket...


Here is my pocket! Me too!
Our Spanish house keys hanging from within... We are going home...

And having now left the house in Wales we called home, we are in slow transit to Spain, we arrived in Cardiff late afternoon yesterday, after a whirlwind of a day, trip to dump, trip to doctors, trip to town and trip to railway station!! Thanks to good friends and family we made the final step... In our hotel room now, after being around the shops for six hours!! Heck!!! Walked each and every one of the many arcades...


So many lovely indepentant shops, bars and restaurants, my feet are sore though, I have walked about ten miles a day for the last week, with all the moving and cleaning and clearing...

Last night it did feel strange, sort of like we really should be getting back to Briton Ferry! And to Pippa!! Who, coincidentally, walked off down the path with the pet transport peeps without a backwards glance, I can only hope, she presumed we were behind her, until at the van she turned and saw we were not!


And now Pippa is making faster progress than us forsure; already in France, and probably comfy in pet friendly residence as I write!

I travelled across country to see Tony and Kate Saturday morning, Tony drove us to Bedford, not been there for donkeys years... We had a drink and then left! In the evening we went to a local eatery, having first course there, then ice cream from next door!


Oh yeah baby! I had blue bubblegum and blackcurrant combo! Yum yum!!! It was gorgeous and I am very glad I don't live nearby!

I should add I guess that I drove in a rental to see my boys... And therefore it was Sunday morning I then headed north on the M1 which was stuck like an old record?!? on 50mph for what seemed like most of the journey!

Spent a lovely day with them... Oh my beautiful greeneyed granddaughter... We went to a branch of Chiquitos... Not been there, well one of its like in Aylesbury since leaving to go to Spain last time!

I left them about 7pm and got back to the Ferry at nearly eleven... Long dark drive, the interior dash lights were too bright and cast a strange reflection on the drivers door window... The longer I drove the more mesmerising it became!!  Thing is the car needed to be back by 12:30 Monday, and I would have had to have left so early... Just seemed best thing to do... And used car for a trip to dump into the bargin!

Okay amigos... TTFN from Welsh Wales for the last time as a resident, in transit now...
See you on the flipside friends, time to travel once more, this chick gathers no moss!!
