What I have been up to this week........nothing earth shattering. Ben and I have been walking our usual haunts taking in the scenery around Llangollen. One day we climbed Castell Dinas Bran , another day I did the round the hill route and we've been on a few walks along the towpath towards Sun Trevor as well as playing ball in the field by the mooring basin. Some days it's been busy and other days we didn't see anybody. It's certainly colder today and out came the scarf and gloves.
Today Eric and I went by train to Shrewsbury to do a little Christmas shopping, with planning we got back in four and a half hours as Ben was OK home alone. He didn't even want to go out for a comfort break (a wee!) when we got back. Sometimes he's an odd dog easily freaked out by any strange noises, flashing lights and this means we can't get him off the boat unless we both take him! We had to stand on the train going to Shrewsbury as there's Wales v Australia Rugby International tomorrow in Cardiff and Arriva trains put a two carriage train from Holyhead to Cardiff.......are they mad? Luckily we had seats on the return journey.
