Bog Plants & Pen Inspection

We found a parcel waiting for us this morning from Hampshire Carnivorous Plants. They literally brought our bathroom windowsill to life:







It has been a bit of a hectic week at work. My application for a new job has landed me an interview next week, so I have at least a glimmer of hope for a fresh start. Whilst it is great news that I have the chance for a new work position, it makes for a stressful weekend as I prepare for the forthcoming interview. Whilst the written word presents me at my best, interviews tend to present me at my worst due to my anxiety/

Anyway, time to get my head down. I'll end this post with a short video I took of little fudjcat being introduced to my new pen lol:

The Morning After

A sun-soaked morning forces me and the pwscat from bed to face the day... Can't face work today.



My reward for taking the day off? This cracking thunderstorm:

Bank Holiday Monday

A lovely Sunday morning saw us out in the garden. Even Fudge joined us, her first time outside since the fire. She was a little nervous and stuck close to us, but she enjoyed her time in the new garden:







A rare pic of Fudge with Monty:


Whilst out there, I also made good headway with my next novel, Familiar.


The light in our temporary home is gorgeous. I think I'm starting to fall in love with the place.

A Walk Through Llanrhidian

 Friday, 05 April, 2024

I took a stroll around Llanrhidian this afternoon and harvested a view images of the experience with you:

The remains of a Celtic Cross on the village green

Celtic Cross remains with Llanrhidian Church in background

Another, more ancient Standing Stone on the village green

Llanrhidian Church dates from Medieval times

The two embedded stones in the church gatepost are supposedly cursed and were once
part of a more ancient graveyard located next to the caravan site where we're staying





This huge and mysterious slab of etched rock was dug in in the grounds of the graveyard 



The interior of Llanrhidian Church





Llanrhidian's 2 pubs, the Welcome to Town
and The Dolphin Inn

An incredible convoluted rock used in
a wall of a Llanrhidian garden

The remains of Llanrhidian Mill


The previous night's storm is recorded in the village telegraph wires


This spot caught my eye - to the degree where
I also took a short short video

A very short video, that is well worth watching to the end:


Weobley Castle

Sheep chilling beneath the Iron Iage Earth Fort ofCilifor Top 



Another, more distant shot of Cilifor Top

Heading back to the caravan, I met another site cat, as well as seeing the more familiar black moggy:



If you enjoy my creating work, please help support my next project, a 24-hour writing marathon to create a workable 1st draft of my next novel, Familiar.

Day 2/100 and a Laundry-time Meander

Monday, 01 April,  2024

Day 2 of my Guy N Smith 100-day-project. Working on the introduction of the Guy N Smith zine under the watchful eye of fudjcat. 


Whilst staying at the caravan site, we doing our clothes washing in the landrette, the cycle lasting 30 minutes. With that in mind, we took a quick drive to the local pond on Cefn Bryn, Broadpool, catching the sunset there perfectly:




Returning to the campsite with a good 10 minutes to spare; we parked the car up outside the laundrette and crossed the road to photograph the sheep that were gathered near the roadside gate:



The sheep were very inquisitive and friendly and even allowed me to take a short video of them:




The Entrance to Llanrhidian Holiday Park

The evening light really has been kind to us since we have been staying in Llanrhidian, as as we left the laundrette with our washing, we were even rewarded with a huge rainbow over our caravan:
