  1. Thank you – the reblog is very much appreciated. I am glad that you enjoyed the tale, it was a really fun day out – even with the fires! 😉

    1. There has been a bit of Wales deep in my heart nearly all my life. I do hope to get there for a visit. Besides visiting where my grandmother was born and grew up, you have just made my to-do list a bit longer and I thank you. The blog post was utterly charming and I could imagine the journey and now want to take it. It was a pleasure to pass that on to my readers and thank you. Léa

    2. Also, I am most grateful for the follow on two of my blogs. 🙂 If you are in North Wales, you may also speak Welsh? How lovely that would be. I so enjoyed listening to the Welsh singers…
