A farmers toast!

Let the wealthy and great, Roll in splendour and state, I envy them not i declare it, I eat my own lamb, My chickens and ham, I shear my own fleece and i wear it, I have lawns,I have bowers, I have fruits,I have flowers, The lark is my morning alarmer, So joyful boy's now, Here's god speed the plough, Long life and success to the farmer!!

The labyrinth.

Yesterday was brilliant. Having been trapped for weeks i was determined to make the most of it.....

An early morning trip 10am to llandudno to buy a till yet more paint and other shop like stuff....

Then Lunch in a proper granny looking cafe that suprised nell and i with it's Quirky menu' she had Waffles with bacon and drizzled with maple syrup HHHMMM HHMMM my quich was very boring in comparison. But guess what ? my 17yr vegetarianism was broken as i filched some off her! shhhhhhhh

We shot down the a55 to Bodelwyddan castle to the lurcher and terrier show, it's the first one i've been to and thoughrly enjoyed.

We took tyson ..Well he didnt know what to make of the place ? the first dog he saw he did his usual "Bring it on mate"act and tied me in a knot, me feeling very foolish amid all these cool dog owners. Then he saw hundreds of dogs in every direction ! his eyes where on stalks and he stuck to my leg like glue, not once venturing away to christen anything..

We missed the rough coated dogs over 28inches not that he would have stood a chance. But we watched the rough bitches and agreed none where as nice as ours........there were some cracking JRT's and amongst all these dogs not one fight or aggressive move was made by any........

I bought some decoy ducks. why???? 2 for £5 thats why and a celtic collar for tye..I also got myself a mad shirt [my old favourite is dead] All sort of camouflaged it's horrible but it hides my bum and as a pocket for my camera and phone and a zip pocket for dinner money ...

Then while busily counting out my pennys i hear "Muuuuuuuuum" I've bought some ducks. and she had and i melted. 2 gorgeous ducklings. We have a pond we have an Ark so why not!!!

We shot home and put them in a bigger box with with food and water and had to shooot out again to go to llanrwst to visit the labyrinth A surreal experience in the Gwydir forest....

First of all we are taken by bus up in to the forest then made to walk holding a rope to a strange building "The prism" were a strange man wearing a sponge helmet told us to look around and "make ourselves comfy" as we'd be here a while! ! very odd ! we where then ushered out of another door and followed a path deep into the forest, passing amazing tree sculptures dressed in ferns ! when we were accosted by a mad woman in RED!!! Who made us wear Red I had a teacosy hat and daft socks mandy was in a big cape. we then had to stand against the green and see how bright we were ?????

We quickly escaped this mad woman leaving the red stuff behind....

Only 20mins later to arrive at a wooden house with another mad woman dressed in yellow[she was a corn on the cob'] who wecomed us to her garden got me to remove my shoes and stand in a flower bed while she WATERED ME!!!! HONEST

we also wove a corn dolly whilst visiting her and had to don yellow clothes , it was a lovely spot and the evening was gorgeous..

Our next encounter was even weirder!!! a darkly handsome rather disturbing man was stood in an arch in the trees, not saying a word and looking at the ground. Who took you individualy by the hand and led you down a path deeper into the undergrowth and made you lie in a freshly dug hollow in the ground and recited poetry about death and your last moments alive!! it was very moving with the smell of the earth and the trees moving above you .{{{ spooky though}}} and very thought provoking..

We followed the path down this bit was highlighted by the large man in Yellow thongs [over his jeans] walking in front......................We then met an amazing fairy who "whispered" and told us a story very quietly in her little bower and sprinkled us with fairy dust and then skipped away.;.;.;.;.;

I then got to paint on silk adding my own little petal to a bigger picture.

Further on out came clog dancers in traditional dress no one spoke they just danced the disapeared it to a roundhouse...

Please believe me when i say i had NOT been eating mushrooms.............................................

Phewwwwwww........I like being busy...... My brain seems to function better everythings clear and simple, and no problem to BIG to overcome ...... I feel 10ft tall and get the urge to stand up on a large rock and shout " Come on" bring it on....... and if this feeling could last i'd rule the world!! a bit like the artichoke above thats taking over the polytunnel!!
Enough of my adrenalin rush.
I should really be working but the anticipation of the utter boredom of sitting in that glass box in Towyn again as made me wilt. it's purgatory when you've got a rack of stuff to do to sit there and watch the zombies feed their money into the machines...it's another world...And i'm in it all weekend argghhhhhhh.
Cols staying in holyhead to push on with the renovation of jakes property so sorrel can open her shop. but she needs a living accomadation as well as a shop and seeing as there are no floors in this place and a very leaky roof and pidgeons on nests!! theres quite a lot to do.

I get the keys on the 11th for my place and i think i'll be open the following week. fingers crossed.
one thing bothers me and i'm sure it would a few of you. it used to be a pet shop you know the type that sells "snakes and tarantulas" well what if any of the spider s live there !!!! or if there are eggs and nests "" yikes {{{shudder}}}} the hairs are creeping on my neck thinking about it. I think i may have it fumigated or something just in case..

I'm off out side now to do one of those jobs you don't dare do when the men are around because they'd want to tell you how....
Dentist 3.30 arcade 6pm -midnight ohhhhhhhh what utter bliss.
