Wonderful Diane aka Trubes .....

went to Wales for a holiday with her husband.

They had a fabulous time, sampling all the
Welsh foods (local cusine) having lots of day
trips .... and she thought of me!!


Croeso i cymru
Welcome to Wales
 
This is the Menai Suspension Bridge - Telford Bridge
Porthaethwy - Pont Telford
or even
Pont Grog y Borth...
 
The bridge links Anglesey and the
mainland of Wales .
 
It was  opened to much fanfare on 30 January 1826
and reduced the journey time from London to Holyhead
 from 36 to 27 hours, a saving of 9 hours.
 
(can you imagine such a journey)
 
 
The bridge was designed by Thomas Telford
and completed in 1826.

(btw Thomas Telford was Scottish)




Thank you Diane , so lovely to
be in my post when I returned from
a little break at
my eldest son and his family.

Bouncing Back ...

(taken from the internet)

I have been thrown off
balance in the last few months ..
not just a broken ankle but
a few other emotional things to deal with.

I am not sure how long it is going
to take me to bounce back and be my
usual happy self again.

I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends,
your support has meant so much to me.

I received a beautiful bouquet from
Diane aka Trubes ..

My favourite flower too.



I was truly touched..

and Barbara sent me a lovely card too..

all on the same day .. It cheered me up so much.



I am truly grateful that all I have is a broken ankle ..
I know that I am on the mend .  ..

Emotions are tough to deal with!!!

THANK YOU TO DIANE, BARBARA
AND TO EVERYONE
FOR ALL THEIR WELL WISHES.
