I know this is supposed to be about my work desk, but I just must share some amazing pictures of our day out with Margaret, last Saturday.
We left Rhos on Sea at about 10.30 and headed for Beddgelert, where we parked and then ambled along the river.

The weather was beautiful, warm and calm and just lovely.

The river was clear and bubbling gently.

View across the river to the Welsh highland railway

And the sun went on shining.

And then we walked up to the station and saw lots of trains at Beddgelert station.

 We had a really blessed day, and delivered Margaret home where she fed us a lovely supper.

Ah yes, I've just remembered. this is What's on Your Worktop Wednesday, so I'd better show you what was on my worktop on Tuesday.
 There a card I made for my great niece, she is 7 on Friday, sorry you can't see it very clearly.
And card I made for my great nephew who is 12 on Easter Monday. (Not the same family, so the similarity of the cards won't be too obvious)
If you would like to see more worktops, instead of a tour of the beautiful Welsh countryside, I'll direct you to  Madame Julia who hosts this thing called WOYWW where we are open our desks to snoopers and say 'welcome'
And I'll beat a hasty retreat before being castigated for having a picture heavy post.
Have a great day visiting desks and Happy Woyww.

great cards, both of them. how lovely it was last week, fabulous to be able to picnic outside that early in April in the sunshine! I fear this weekend being Easter (of course) won't be as good.... Helen #1

Great Nephew card, boys are usually hard to make cards for but you have made light work of it and produced a FAB boy card! Love the gate and the river views too. Thanks for the visit BJ#5

Lovely day out, my husband is a steam engineer on industrial boilers so we like to see all the steam trains. We watched michael portillo on bbc2 last night, he was in Albuquerque looking at an enormous restoration project

Oh it was the most beautiful day on Saturday! Mr LLJ and I went on a grand tour of the western Brecon Beacons to Llandovery and back over the Black Mountain...truly God's own country - it was stunning. I've shown lots of non desk pics over the past few weeks so you're in good company, lol! Great pics of Beddgelert and the trains, I've been there so could picture exactly where you were :-D
Hugs, LLJ 13 xxx
PS Oh, and your crafting is fun too!

Me again! It was neither of the places you mentioned, but a small scale affair near Llangadog (by Llandovery). It is associated with RedKiteWales...the scenery was stunning, we really enjoyed ourselves!

Beautiful cards and nice neat desk but I must say the photos of the Welsh countryside captured my eye. Went to Wales in 2004 and was able to see so much fun stuff. It is always amazing to me cause I live in such a flat are of my country compared to there. Hope you have a great week and thanks for stopping by my desk earlier! Vickie #38
