My birthday this year was, again, in Lockdown and so I decided to defer my Birthday Day Out until later in the year. I was beginning to think it would be forgotten, when K and I decided we needed a day out, and Tam was away at a friend's wedding (with her young man). We booked to go to Plas Newydd at Llangollen in Denbighshire. It's about 2 hours' drive from here. It's somewhere I've always wanted to go - in fact, since I was in my 20s, so it's only taken me nearly 50 years to get there! K and I had lunch there too - cheese and ham toasties which more than filled us up until teatime. They have a little cafe in the old stables and stable-yard.
A pair of matching solid Walnut chairs in the Ladies' bedroom. Keith loved these (work in solid Walnut is SO rare - there must have been a fallen tree someone put to good use). He was even measuring them up and saying, "They work just as well in Oak" - and we happen to have some big oak planking here . . .
