We did enjoy our time away though, with some fab walks in beautiful countryside - puts Pembrokeshire to shame. I saw a beautiful cottage with some land for sale right up in the mountains - but actually only a few miles from the nearest village - would buy it if I won the Lottery! I was proud of myself - managed a long and strenuous walk in a forestry area, and then a tour of the Gold Mine that we were staying at. This involved some very steep steps and the actual underground part (and I can get claustrophobic). They did have to get a spare guide to come and escort me out, as the rest of the group were going out via a very difficult set of ladders and steep walkways. I knew my body would not be able to cope with that.
If anyone is visiting Carmarthenshire, here is the link to the mine -

We stayed in the caravan site, which is literally just across the road - and is very peaceful and friendly.
When we returned, I then had the double job of unpacking the caravan, catching up with washing etc - and getting the house ready for guests. My husbands 'kids' (who are 20 and 22 now) and their partners, so I had both spare rooms to clear out and make beds up, and make the rest of the house a bit more presentable. Oh well, at least I was left with a clean house after they left yesterday - and I spent some enjoyable time in my craft room finally.
This is my desk this morning. A sweet shaped card made from designs printed off from the new Crafters Companion Frou Frou CD-Rom - which is wonderful, and well worth getting, as well as the digikits. You can also see a New Home card waiting to be folded and the insert added. I designed this using my Serif Craft Artist 2 Professional software and various digikits.
I am busy with swaps over at Swap Bot again, so today will be spent making notecards and a Horse ATC for 3 of the 7 swaps I am signed up for at the moment.

Happy WOYWW to all those that I do not manage to leave a comment for.
