Back on the Grid

I’m back everyone! What’s that you say? You didn’t notice I was gone?


I was only away for a few days to be fair, and since I only post a couple of times a week there’s been very little difference post-wise from the draliman stables.

I do want to apologise to the people I follow. My philosophy is “If you post it, I shall read” but I only had my phone with me and I didn’t really keep up with reading all your lovely blogs – the screen is a little small :-(.

I’ve been on a little holiday in North Wales, near a town called Dolgellau. I’ll pop some photos into a couple of posts in the coming days – here’s one I took during a forest walk at Coed y Brenin.

For those of you who know me a little bit, you’ll appreciate that this was quite a big step for me. I haven’t been on a holiday for five years, and I’m so driven by routine it’s sometimes difficult to leave the flat, let alone drive all the way to Wales on my own (350 miles). I’m always convinced that if I do something out of my ordinary routine something bad will happen. There’s probably some psychological condition for that – “mild routine-itis” I expect it is.

Anyway I had a lovely time :-). Nothing terrible happened (except to my bank balance and waist line). Maybe next year I’ll have another holiday, who knows?

    Welcome back.
    Tepee12/Marilyn I consider my home base in this blog world and I find it difficult to keep up on her daily posts so don’t be hard on yourself.
    I stayed at home for many years by choice. It was a good idea and a horrible idea. I now get out often and hiking being my passion. Getting out and away is better.

      I agree – staying home is safe and easy but I had a great time in Wales – I’m already thinking about next year’s holiday!
