My eldest son has an activity week at Bewerley Park this week, so we were up early and he was excited. Gill took them to school, as I had also arranged to spend some time away.
I took a train to Manchester Piccadilly and met up with K who has come over to the UK. We got a train to Chester and then on to Conwy, where we are going to spend a bit of time catching up... we haven't really seen each other for over 20 years, so it promises to be quite a reunion. It was lovely to see her again, especially after so much emailing and Googletalking over the past year.
We easily found the cottage in Conwy, and once we'd dumped our stuff we went to do a bit of shopping for provisions for the next few days. Later we went for an after-dark wander around, the castle well lit up and it's a picturesque place.
