Weather we like it here or not...

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda - Happy New Year!

We have been battered by some extreme weather this last few weeks. As I was told in the shop the other day, it has been 43 days of non-stop rain. Luckily we have had some respite in the last few days. Ok, there has been rain but not to the extent we have seen. The decision of the Met Office to name storms has coincided with us being battered by Storms Desmond and Eva in particular. Anglesey does benefit from mixed weather. The rainfall keeps the place lush and verdant so we have to stick with it. We wouldn't live anywhere else.

The weather has, however, changed the landscape somewhat. We now have a stream in the big field and a pond by the drive.

 

In fact the new pond (it is only a few inches deep at the moment) has given us an idea to make that a proper pond, partly to act as a sump in times of heavy rain, but also as it is so pretty! The birds love it!

Christmas has seen a period of quiet reflection at Cae'r Bryniau, a chance to review our progress and look forward to the opening of the Bed and Breakfast. Apart from that, we had a lovely time, with friends and family over the fortnight. Tom and Barbara were somewhat confused by the decorations - especially the five foot dancing Father Christmas - as the video below shows.

The Welsh classes are going well, too, but it is a tough language and takes some concentration. Well worth the effort, though.

Keep watching for the latest, but Suzi, Tom and Barbara and the rest of the menagerie join me in wishing you all a very healthy and prosperous 2016.

An attention-grabbing discussion is price comment. I think that it's best to write more on this matter, it may not be a taboo topic but usually persons are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers
