Why am I excited? I am going to Snowdonia today, Llanberis to be exact. A birthday treat! Walking shoes, big brolly, waterproof coats, warm clothes. Oh and a nice bottle or two of red. Not forgetting that!
Will there be snow on Snowdon? I really hope so! The mountain railway is not open yet, so plenty of walks planned. Derek and I will hopefully be seeing fellow Oapschatters, Dorothy and Ken for a few hours. Looking forward to meeting up again with these lovely people.
We are staying at Beech Bank. The location of this B and B looks good to me and the views will be spectacular, I'm sure. Eating out will be enjoyed and no washing up for three days!
Talking of food, I don't often buy ready meals, but this week I confess to have eaten two. The ingredients leave much to be desired don't they in these types of meals. For example a fish pie that only contained 28% fish. My home made fish pies contain a LOT of fish. A meat dish contained 29% beef. So really, not a lot of protein in these dishes was there? Note to self. Poached eggs on toast or beans on toast if too busy to cook. NOT ready meals again!
Only 28% Fish!
Next week's blog will be about my stay in Wales. Oh, and I will be a different age than I am today! (checks for grey hair).
Have a good week everyone! See you next Saturday.
