Anyway I was heading to Aberystwyth when I spotted a sign to a village and thought hang on Jan lives there so I popped in unannounced, hope that was ok. Cheers for the coffee, it was amazing just how close the birds get to her kitchen window!!!!
It was lovely to see little Emma looking so well!

Jan suggested Aberareon as a nice place to visit so I changed my plans and headed off.
but first I stopped at
St Gwenog, Llanwenog
Aberareon is a very old fashioned sea side town and quite unspoilt. Very picturesque alas I was there on a grey cloudy damp day.
There was a National Trust property 5 miles away so...
Llanerchereon is not a grand house but its one of those interesting houses the trust does well. Its a gentleman's villa, a place you could imagine living and lots of the servants arears, meat room, kitchen, laundry etc are open.
The lake had a family of Little Grebes (they were hiding from the camera alas) oh and a Red Kite overhead (loads of Buzzards sat on telegraph polls btw)
The observant amongst you will have noticed a church in the last photo so I strolled down.
I wandered into the NT tea room for a cup of tea and a slice of ginger cake. As I finished it was 3:10 and it was raining hard so I strolled to the car and wended my way home. Curiously despite the weather I had a rather nice day.
Oh and I have read all my work emails. Yes that is sad.
So lamb, beef, cod or salmon tonight? decisions decisions. The bread and butter pudding was good last nigh btw.
