Well Good Morning lovely people and if you are new to my blog and wonder what I am on about, visit Dame Julia who hosts this weekly convention of crafters.
This morning my desk is rather bare, just a few incipient Christmas cards and a birthday card lurking almost out of sight because it is for Margaret.
Also there are a few pieces of paper from a magazine, a necklace requiring mending and my trusty radio which brings me The Archers every evening and lots of daily radio programmes too.
As I said last week, my sister and her hubby were here last week, so no card making there, instead we had days out so here are some pictures of Snowdonia to share with you.

 The view over Llyn Peris.

And a stream coming down from Pen Y Pass.
We spent about an hour just rock hopping over this stream, and paddling in it, it was so warm.

Well that is all have for you today except to say that I have been encountering problems putting comments on some people's pages, especially those with Google+. Either the comment window opens then immediately closes or the comments just disappear. If anyone visits my desk, I always return the call, so is very frustrating being unable to say how much I appreciate your comments on my page or say how much I have liked yours.
I will persevere, sending messages via emails if necessary, but sometimes even that is not possible so please forgive me if I haven't commented on your page and if anyone has any idea why this is happening and what I can do about, please let me know.
Bless you for dropping in

Hi Chris! I think it was you that visited my blog earlier today. You didn't leave your number so I'm not sure. Anyway, thank you for your visit! I'm sorry you had trouble leaving a comment on my WOYWW entry last week. I'm not sure what's causing that. But I did find your kind message on G+ so thank you for that! Lovely views in Snowdonia! We climbed Pen-y-Fan in the Brecon Beacons just a few weeks ago - it was spectacular! PS. My husband listens to the Archers as well - I prefer silence, LoL! Best wishes: Zsuzsa @InkyDinkyDoodle #22

I feel like such a slacker, I haven't made a single Christmas card yet lol. Yours are lovely. Beautiful scenery. The last time I hopped rocks at the beach I was reminded of my age and nearly crashed face first into one... and was so glad it was too early for anyone (especially with a camera) to see lol. Thanks for visiting me earlier. (Touch wood) My hand has been co-operating this week. #6

Hello Mrs. D,

Yikes, I haven't made any Christmas cards yet -- but I know what I'm going to do so all is not lost! It looks like you had a lovely visit with your sister and her husband. What beautiful photos!!!

Happy belated WOYWW,
Peace, Kay (31)
