Yes Myma, had a tym and a half in Cymru.
In a mountain cabin in Snowdonia for a family party... lots of fun, but now full of itchy byts from flying things.
Don't think I'm right for outdoors. Always fall pray to things with wings.

Sorry I was missing .
Flu jab obviously didn't work as I was laid up for 7 days and am only now finding my foot x2.
Just at right hour as I'm off to Snowdonia for two days first thing in morning for family party.
With luck alcoholic drinks will work to rid any bugs still lurking. !!!

Good for you Myk :-)

I own family roots of Mum in Norfolk- Cawston mostly!
A long list going back to 1573.

I am so glad you had a good x with your Family History pursuit! And good it was sunny for you too Myk!:-)

That is kind of holidays that I want to b having. In fact, I am wanting to visit a branch of family's roots habitat, may b 1 a yr!
This will b at x of Grandson 1's adulthood, as GS 1 would find it all v v dull and so it would b of GS 1's liking to stay at our living habitat and not go!

Now it's x I was not on this (or any) Yarn, as I am tardy in going to snoozy bunk according to clock!

So Goodnight Myk :-)

Had a Fabulous holiday touring round Norfolk, Suffolk. Lincoln, and Warwick in glorious hot sunny days.
On trail of family history.
Found lots of info at library and took photos of buildings and various parts of towns that long past family wur living.
Happy that our trip was fruitful.
Did want to go for lots of 365 days but it always got put off.
So at last it's got a tick against it on our list of things to do. :-D
