    1. Happy New Year, Meg. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Just got home ourselves from a sunshiny week in Anglesey. Feeling a bit odd having been away from blogging for over a week. Doubtless will be submerged again fairly soon πŸ™‚

  1. Never been to Anglesey but funnily enough a friend is hiring a cottage there in March and suggested we might like to pop across. Mick looked askance as it’s a bit of a long ‘pop’! They’re in Sheffield so not so bad. Anyway- I digress πŸ™‚ It’s a beautiful photo and gives me the opportunity to send you a New Year hug πŸ™‚

  2. Such a beautiful shot. One can hardly tell the slight blur from the after effects of champagne!

    Absolutely everything of the best, dear Tish.

    May all things be rosy for you and your fella,
    And here’s to you penning a million seller.

    1. Ah, sweet Ark. Thanks for all those very fine wishes, which I wholeheartedly reciprocate. And I was indeed a little blurry while in Wales – though mostly due to an astonishing amount of sunshine – 3 whole days on the trot. Made one’s spirits (of the non-bottled variety) turn cartwheels and somersaults.

      1. Looked like it was throwing it down at White Heart Lane in London when Spurs played Crystal Palace.
        It hit 31 down here. Over at John Zs spot, just outside Sao Paulo, he was melting at 37.
        Then a quick hop skip and a jump up north to Canada where Notes to Ponder is busy shoveling 3 inches of snow from her driveway!

        Don’t you just love the internet!
        So much more than ”fair weather” friends, wouldn’t you agree!

  3. Dear Tish
    I found your site by chance and thought I’d get in touch. I just wanted to let you know I enjoy following your writings, musings, knowledge, allotment trials, admissions, images, humour and some interests in common in relation to a sense of place. Thank you, yours looking for a safe place to keep that light. Kind Regards Denise

    1. How very nice to meet you, Denise. Thank you for accidentally finding me, so I could find you. Your blog is very beautiful, and I’m fascinated by the time you spent at Erddig. (Was there in the summer). Also your research sounds v. intriguing too – the link between archaeology and art and place. Am now following to keep track of you πŸ™‚

      1. Thank you Tish, it’s nice to meet you too and it’s also very nice to be found. I loved being at Erddig and did a large amount of research on and off site unearthing all sorts of hidden treasures and stories in the landscape. My remit was more an archaeology of media working within the house and collections to assist in interpreting the landscape although I did encounter many escarpments, earthwork boundaries, ditches, gullies and ridge and furrow (well if I squinted hard enough with my head at a jaunty angle in the right light). Thanks for stopping by and for your comment on my blog. Best keep at it knowing there is an eye on me!

  4. bonne annΓ©e et surtout bonne santΓ©, Tish! πŸ™‚ my very best for 2017: joy, hope and tons of inspiration… friendly thoughts & cheers! MΓ©lanie Bedos-Nicolas
