Wonderful Wales!

Yesterday was my last day at work and it still seems unreal as the Friday before we were enjoying the last day of our lovely holiday in North Wales. I haven't made a single card since I heard about my redundancy but hopefully I can get back into it soon! Although it was a shock at least I wasn't untreated unfairly and informed by text message as sometimes happens these days. I have missed posting on my blog so I thought I would share a couple of holiday photos. We stayed in a beautiful pine lodge near Pwllheli on the Lleyn Peninsula which has stunning scenery and remains unspoiled. I have always wanted to visit Portmeirion so that was on our list of things to see. I was very impressed and would go again as we didn't spend much time in the gardens due to the heavy rain. I did manage to get a few photos before the heavens opened but unfortunately the rain was so heavy that many of the pictures were completely blurred. In spite of the unpredictable weather it was a nice relaxing holiday.

I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday Denise, we visited this area about 20 years ago, but I still remember how lovely Portmeirion and Harlech Castle were, and the beaches were just beautiful. Gorgeous photos!

Sorry about your bad news, but delighted that you enjoyed your holiday in Wales. Haven't been since I was a child, but loved it then.

So Glad you enjoyed your holiday in "GOD'S COUNTRY" Sparkle. Not that I'm biased about Wales or anything (LOL) Although I'm Welsh born and Bred I've never been to Pwllhelli or Portmeirion but certainly looks lovely. I love the sea and have lived by it all my life but it never ceases to amaze me. GOOD LUCK WITH THE JOB HUNTING.
