I have been a bit remiss.
Village news has taken somewhat of a back burn recently , what with a holiday in Kent, Fridge Door disasters and a month-long Prof sabbatical.
I shall share a brief update as I wait for the windows to fill the two ugly voids in the front of Bwthyn-y-Llan
Today we are back to normal. The Prof has donned shirt and tie and Elvis has FINALLY left the building!
and Winnie has finally met her two workmen this morning, both of whom have rubbed and kissed her so much that she has finally collapsed in a moist unnecessary heap upon the back patio floor.
I have noticed that we have had a few new residents in Trelawnyd recently. Arfon from Pen-y-cefn Isa told me that the new guy renting his old bungalow is a bit of a gardener and that I should pounce with a Flower Show Schedule, but I have resisted the urge. We need to have a post Flower Show meeting soon to decide which village initiatives get supported this year and I wanted to check how Auntie Glad is doing. I saw her yesterday, sunbathing outside her front door and she looked well.
- she had a bright yellow duster tucked into the pocket of her pinny
Another new Trelawnyd-ite is the sweetly good natured " Harmonica"
Harmonica ( derived by me adding "our" to her first name " Monika" geddit? ) is, I think Polish. She could be Dutch, but I can't be sure as I am shit at accents, but anyhow whatever country she indeed comes from , she is now here with her partner and young baby, living a few doors down from Auntie Glad.
Almost daily I see Harmonica. She pops down to the field with her baby to feed the birds and like most animals everytime, they see her coming they crowd en masse by the gate like the forest animals did with Snow White. Like I said she's very sweet, and like many new mums, perhaps a little isolated.
The other day, she asked ( because I am a village elder ( oh errrr) ) if I could help her,
She was, ( pre baby) a busy aerobic teacher and wondered if she could put on some free village based keep fit sessions on in the hall.
I told her that I would ask the powers that be.
The upshot of all this is that the Hall manager has said yes and Harmonica has been given the green light. I am pleased for her and plan with Trendy Carol ( who had a striking trouser suit on today!) and The Prof to join in ( albeit on the back row)
I wish her well!
I have still got to treat Islwyn and Cameron the teen boffin to something for their work on the field when we were away. Neighbours Mandy and Pat the animal helper have already been given flowers for their input!
George remains his bright and normal Self but will be going to the vets this week. His lump has reduced in size and smell but now remains as a residual and on the surface harmless mass.
We shall see.....
I've been brushing his teeth this morning....It would be easier juggling the contents of a scatter cushion.
