My dear ladies and occasional gentleman, I finally believe I have the hang of this SOCKING & BLOCKING malarkey.
I snatched another glimpse of his panicked face as a LARGE WHITE balloon escaped from a sticky child’s hand and floated after him across the GIANT CHESS SET.
Leaving me to have a lovely RELAXING time wandering around the pretty ITALIANATE gardens with quirky TROMPE L’OEIL and statues. If you haven’t seen or don’t know about the television programme ‘THE PRISONER’, don’t bother to read this as the references won’t mean a thing to you.
If you ever are in Snowdonia do visit PORTMEIRION you won’t be dissappointed.
I’ll leave you now as we are going for our morning walk with the dogs on the coastal path, the scenery is STUNNING. Sparkling blue sea and glorious mountains.
Only marred by our morning argument over Ronald’s stubbornness insisting that one of the mountains is SNOWDON, when quite clearly the GIANT one BEHIND it is SNOWDON. He knew he was wrong the first morning but there was no way he can admit it.
my thanks to Tim Richmond who gave me permission to use his postcard pictures.

MY BOOK DEAR LADIES AND OCCASIONAL GENTLEMAN
My dear ladies and occasional gentleman Ronald WOKE me at an UNGODLY HOUR this morning so that I could put the SUBTITLES on the TELEVISION so that the SOUND wouldn’t WAKE ME UP!!!

THE FLIP SIDE my dear ladies and occasional gentleman is this.
When your DELIGHTFUL granddaughter smooths your hair away keeping her little hands holding your face and says,
“YOU LOOK REALLY PRETTY WITH YOUR HAIR LIKE THAT GRANNY.”
The FLIP SIDE – ten minutes later,
“GRANNY WHY HAVE YOU GOT TWO CHINS?”
Here she is COMMUNING with the COWS, temporary ladder in place to prevent her JOINING them.
My dear little ghostly writer is pushing me for my next adventure but these ADORABLE SOCKS are SIREN SINGING……………KNIT ME! KNIT ME! KNIT ME!
Oh well, head down for an hour and then let me at those SOCK NEEDLES and GORGEOUS SEASCAPE YARN.
