If I am careful we might be able to have a day out tomorrow.

OH and I are considering going to Wales.
We generally go to that cheap shop in Caerphilly, which I know doesn't make it very cheap but it is a day away from here.

Anybody about?

Hope it's cooler in Wales, Sharron!

I'm going to London for the day to meet up with my oldest friend - must be mad, the heat will be worse in London! And, no, I'm not going to join the crowds outside Buckingham Palace!

Well i hope you have a jolly nice time Sharron.

Supposed to be thunderstorms tomorrow. :-(


Wend Report 22 Jul 2013 17:23

Sorry Sharron - I'm meeting up with friends for lunch at Highdown Gardens tomorrow and that's my limit for travelling in this hot weather. Mind you, the forecast isn't looking good - thunderstorms and rain, so lunch could well be a wet one!.

I'm sure there are a few members in Wales who would be delighted to meet you if they're around ;-)


GinN Report 22 Jul 2013 17:24

Caerphilly just up the road from me Sharron - cheap shop - which one?

You're more than welcome to call in for a cuppa - I'm just off Jct 32 of M4 - you'd have to get off the M4 at that one to get to Caerphilly - let me know if you want a cuppa and I'll give you my address!!! :-)

That is very kind Ann.

It is the one by the Green Lady, are there more and better?

Ask those who have already met me, I am worse than you imagine. Wend will tell you.

It's expensive to get into Wales these days Sharron.
They want £6.20 on the toll bridge..... but it's free to leave Wales.

We went 2 weeks ago to meet friends in Swansea and I loved being back there.
...must go again soon and stay longer.

Enjoy your visit.

PS..To Ann
Sharron is OK and good company......



Sharron Report 22 Jul 2013 22:26

We went down the side of the Severn from Monmouth ( I think) last time.

That way we get to see a bit of different countryside and get in for nothing.


AnnCardiff Report 22 Jul 2013 22:35

you've not met me either Sharron!!!! ;-)

What about fred?


Sharron Report 22 Jul 2013 23:17

Oh, I will leave him a glass of water and some margerine sandwiches.

Or were you wondering which route he takes?

What is the toll for a wheelchair on the Severn Bridge?

Gwyn in Kent

Gwyn in Kent Report 22 Jul 2013 23:32

No footpaths on the new bridge,but he could travel across the old one free...or you could tow him across the new one... No extra charge for towing.

He'd need more than a margarine sandwich to power it that far though. He might need to find a sausage sandwich refuelling cafe.



Sharron Report 22 Jul 2013 23:34

I don't care. I won't be there.

Really! You would think I was a carer or something.
