Hello Again! A lovely Day Here On Anglesey....

Its a lovely day here on Anglesey so I thought i would take a few photographs and try and get back into the Blogging thing ...... i have really missed you all.

Sorry i have been away so long .... nothing really amiss.... just life sometimes gets in the way of the best intentions. We have had our share of lifes ups and downs .... Weddings, the sad death of Hubby P's Mother, Children moving away and the 'getting going' of Hubby P's new buisness venture.
Hubby P is keeping 'Bread on the Table' with his Trading buisness .... Vintage and Collectables dont ya know!
And just to be a Real Trader ... he has bought a van ....

And of course its a Big White Van ..... real white van man stuff!
(I have to have a little portable step to get in and out ... its so big/tall ... and I've only little legs! I feel a bit like the Queen .. bless her! )

Of course all my time has gone to helping with the buisness ... all hands on deck ..... its our livelyhood we are talking about ... and things were a bit lean over the early months. Its a good job we have had practise of the Thrifty lifestyle.

I must say its lots of fun .... hard work and tiring ... but fun. We find lots of interesting things and of course I want to keep them all ....

Some of them just have to come home ... if only for a little while and then we sell them on.

We managed to do some jobs around the house, and the cottage is freshly resplendant in a new coat of paint..... how do you like the pinky PINK look!

The lads were a bit unsure but hey .... I got the paint real cheap and anyway I just love the colour, nice and warm looking.

Let me know what you think .... is it a bit extream? Am I turning into a mad old woman.... or is it too late?

Is'nt this a nice little picture .... horse and foal in the field opposite the cottage.

Again this was bought as stock .... but could you believe it someone pinched the fuel cap lid (or something .. Hubby P knows about these things!) whilst it was on display so its unsafe to use .... never mind .... looks nice in my garden where it can happily weather its life away!

The poppies are looking just wonderful .... although dont look too closely the garden is dreadfully overgrown .... needs weeding when a have a spare hour or two.

Very pretty but a lot of it wild flowers .. otherwise known as weeds!

I do so like all the old and rusty .... could be said of Hubby P some cold damp mornings!

I will leave you with a couple of pretty flowers ....

xx Take care xx Bye for now xx


  1. hello, I just came over from Dans blog. I like the pale pink very much, I have been considering that for our cottage here in Somerset, for some time.
    I have enjoyed my visit and will be back again soon. Nice to meet you, blessings Kath

  2. Where have you been missus? Did you have a nice birthday? did our card turn up? How was the wedding? drop me an email when you get chance. I think the pink looks ace.

  3. Nice to see you back in blogland. Your cottage looks lovely, very pretty in pink ... ;0)

  4. Welcome back! I'd be a disaster as I'd never bring myself to sell anything! Lovely picture of the horse and foal and your house and garden look wonderful. Anglesey must be the only place having good weather, we've had torrential rain and thunder storms today!

  5. What a lovely looking blooming garden and Cottage Vicki!Maybe see you tomorrow at Mona..Ive started a blog now please have alook and you can give me some tips and maybe even follow me!You will probably spot some of your lovely supplies!

  6. I like the pink, it's not TOO pink. Glad you are back in Blogland!

  7. Missed you! Your cottage looks lovely, I love that pink colour, it looks pretty all year round.

  8. Hello Mrs, you have been missed but sounds like you've been very busy.
    The cottage looks lovely and I am a big fan of the lived in look for the garden, unfortunately for them my next door neighbour isn't but I tell him I'm doing my bit for all the wildlife that are becoming extinct because folk weed too much ;)

  9. so glad to have you back! I have been checking regularly hoping you would be blogging again!
    The garden looks lovely; weeds are a state of mind! Some people call cow parsley weeds- I like them in my garden!
    Thanks again!

  10. hello! nice to see you back :)
    hubby's van looks a lot like our own 'pretty pagan'~in her previous life she was a vegetable van-moving veggies around to market and smelt like damp cabbage! now she is a large and almost luxurious home on wheels :)

    i think a slightly overgrown garden always looks a little bit special :)

  11. The view of the horse in the neighbor's field is amazing. I envy you. And I'm so happy that so many of the previous comments say they like the weedy garden look. Wish my neighbors felt the same way. Welcome back and best wishes in your new business. I suspect you'll be big success.

  12. Oh how you were missed !!!
    Knew (hoped) it was nothing too serious that kept you away. But sure are glad you and yours are back !!

    (HOW many times have I re-read about the Lentil lads ?)

    So sorry to hear about your mother-in-law.

    And from one 'mad' old woman to another- I think your pinkly palace looks chipper & marvelous !!

    And thats the best thing about doing 're-sell'... You always are buying new things- use them for a while- then you get to swop them out !!

  13. Pretty, pretty garden and lovely pink cottage. Sweet! Good luck with your hubs venture and happy trading!

  14. I really like the pink you have chosen.
    Good luck with your business.
    Imlook forward to following your blog.

  15. Welcome back, I wondered where you'd gone. I've had your site bookmarked for ages. I know what you mean wanting to keep all the goodies. They blend in beautifully with your garden.
    I love your cottage and the pink looks just right.
    Love from Mum

  16. Glad you are back! Sometimes we have to take a break... I have missed your wit! Love the pink.
    Take care, Lisa

  17. Welcome back! Nowt wrong with that pink - it loOks great. Good luck with the business.

  18. your cottage is simply beautiful. It's a little like the Manx and Scottish ones. I've only just found your blog again, I lost it.

    My Mum's family were from Anglesey - they used to caretake a chapel and had a cottage/house next to it. My Mum is 91, so they would have been pretty old, as Mum went as a child and the aunties were old then.

    Also, my Mum's younger sister (a little bit older than me, strangely) has a house on Anglesey but I'm not sure where.

    Love all your collectables.

  19. Nice and great Post!!
