a trip was made to Nanteos Mansion, near Aberystwyth. An elegant place most suitable for a Bear. I had borrowed from the public library Malcolm Pryce's third novel on Aberystwyth - The Unbearable lightness of Being in Aberystwyth, excellent reading. A delightful room, with extensive bathroom was found for me, but disapointed that no-one arrived to light the open fire. Ah well.
2 bathroom details below:
In the morning I wandered along the front of the house finding comfortable places to reside, and watched the sun coming up over the hill. A charming vista.
Beautiful old kitchens, though a distinct lack of servants - at least it was quiet.

I sit in great expectations, I am at Fornum & Mason's about to take afternoon tea with friends. Even she is going to smile, I think, in pink; even though we both know that there is some one absent who may have enjoyed the event.
if you would like to see a large album of photogrpaphs of the event do take a look here

there was a choir practice all day on saturday; she took part in a rather terrified state.
I stayed over at Lou's parent's place as buses don't happen north of Aberteifi on a sunday, and we didn't want to miss out on afternoon tea.
the vestry was decorated with flowers and a huge spread of tea appeared and was enjoyed by more than 30 people...and me.
I was invited to an afternoon tea celebrating the begining of a community art project at Capel Crannog in Llangrannog, Ceredigion. The artists creating and organising the project are Louise Laurens and Jacob Whittaker, together they form Gwrando

Later after walking along the stream we sat amongst the bluebells to eat the main meal - followed by individual raspberry trifles, then of course a nap.
We strolled back through the woods, resting briefly in an oak grove.
Later tea was taken, with cake back at the house.

We drove within a few hundred yards of our old home, saw the bus stop where weekends away with the grandparents started from, and also visited the place where one set of grandparents had once resided: to say a farewell before it disapears. It seems to be slowly losing it's shine and in need of a little repair, not unlike myself - constant attention needed to keep in one peice!
