The Traveller Returns

I have returned from my brief sojurn to North Wales. It didn't rain! Not once! Not even a little bit! There were a couple of snow flurries but no rain. There was even a couple of brief spells of sunshine! I think that's the first time ever.

One of the good things about going up there is we get to go past Snugburys. And for once we went past it on the way up and on the way back. This place is ice cream heaven. On the way up I had the Banana Caramel and Apple Pie, on the way back Tropical Coconut, and Turkish Delight. Excellent! M had Death by Chocolate and Sloe Gin and Damson, followed by Amaretto and Sloe Gin and Damson. If ever you are passing, call in. In fact if you are anywhere remotely near the place, call in!

Just round the corner from there, literally, is a house that M loves. Henhull Bridge Farm House. Everytime we go past she states her intention of buying it if we win the lottery. This time it was actually up for sale. Despite buying a lottery ticket we failed to make her dream come true, however, we were at least abe to check it out online. How disappointing. We don't like the inside at all, so as well as the capital purchase it would need a complete refit. It better be a big win on the lottery then - house, refit and daily visits to Snugburys!


  • Ice-cream in winter? You are brave.

    What a featureless house that is and I wonder why was there no picture of any bath/shower rooms?

    Welcome back.

  • Snugburys sounds wonderful!
    But, as Toffeeapple says, ice-cream in Winter?

    Glad you enjoyed welsh Wales.
    Welcome back to the rat-race.

  • There is no season in which ic cream isn't the answer!

  • I quite like the house. Admittedly some of the carpets are a trifle sudden, and the curtains not much better. The false beams leave a bit to be desired and I'm not too sure about the fireplace in the living room.

    On balance, you're right, it's bloody horrible.
