Some winter walking

At the beginning of the week in between some of the snow we had in South Wales M and I branched out together for a wonderful (and in the latter half) challenging walk along part of the West Pembrokeshire coast, a circular around the Angle Peninsular.

New Years in Wales

M and I went away for the New Years along with G & Mr. T, X & S.  We all stayed in a comfortable cottage in Wisemans Bridge in Pembrokeshire.  Despite it being a little chilly, it was sunny and we were able to get out and about a bit.

We started the New Year with a barbecue

and some fireworks.

I watched a few hundred nutters people go for a New Year swim

and then for a New Year's stroll around Kilgetty.  It started of sunny and ended up snowy:

 There has been snow about ever since!  We had a little cycle to Tenby on slightly icy roads

Lit a few balloons:

Went for a really long walk:
Along the edge of Angle Bay
(more on that in another post) and ate a lovely fish supper in nearby Saundersfoot. We thought we saw a little few wisps in the sky....

Then woke up on our penultimate day to this:

We then considered our options whilst checking the weather forecast and realised that even our little corner of Hampshire (last to get snow, first to thaw) was going to blanketed. So we struck camp and made our way home.

Some Christmas sewing

I saw just enough of somebody's Handmade Christmas to see them create a stitch and flip stocking before I turned it off thinking "I can do better (and cheaper)" and went off to my fabric compost in its nice colour sorted bags and came up with these babies just in time to be filled for Christmas. One for me and one for him. Can you guess which one is mine?
