Next time - shoot me!

Next time someone says shall we do a car boot for the Cadwraeth (translation = conservation; a little community group that looks after the common land) have a BBQ for the church funds AND have old school friends come down to stay... all on the same day - shoot me.  And to think everyone believes it's so quiet in this neck of the woods; think again. It can be busy, very busy.  Luckily living with others as we do, we always have those extra pairs of hands that can help lighten the load.  Thanks especially to Her Next Door who was cooking and preparing for days beforehand.

On the Sunday we took our friends out and about...  as always very proud to show off picturesque Pembrokeshire.  I noticed again how thoroughly friendly people are here; really open, chatty and happy to give you their time. That made me even more proud to be a local now.  My friend's jaw dropped open when at one caf√©, where they didn't take debit cards... and I didn't have cash, it was 'not a problem, pay later'.

My friend's christian name is David, so a visit to St David's was a must.
By Sunday evening I was tired though, I caved in - I think I might have had a little snooze on the sofa.  I just hope I didn't dribble in front of my guests.

The weekend before last we climbed Carningli Mountain - G10's friend had a birthday party at the very top. What a place to have it, thought I'd share a photograph of them - quite a special memory.

Top of the world.
And while we're on the topic of photographs, a blogger friend of mine has gone as far as putting one of my efforts on her wall.  Thank you Rachel for the very great compliment.  Quite mind blowing for me, to think my little corner of Wales is adorning the wall of a home in Israel.

I won't shoot you - you enjoyed every minute of it (and I'm sure they'll forgive you for the dribbling on Sunday). That picture of everyone on Carningli is pretty fab. That should probably be printed and put on someone's wall too!

Never mind a picture of Carningli on my wall, I want my birthday party up there! Thanks for the mention and I'm still loving my picture.

Sounds like such a delightful time. A bit hectic, perhaps, but wonderful.

Contrary to your wishes, I'd shoot you. But only with my camera.
