Ochr Y Gop

This morning I've hand delivered most of the village Christmas cards.
By the time I reached Ochr y Gop farm which overlooks Trelawnyd on the side of Gop Hill, I was wheezing a bit, my chest infection still hasnt quite cleared it would seem.
Ochr y Gop 

After that deliveries literally went down hill.
I stopped briefly outside Mrs Trellis' house. The windows were open and I could hear her singing as she practiced the piano.

Ps and a big thank you to The Weaver Of Grass The bobble hat is lovely! Xxxxx

  4. John I am so pleased that the bobble hat has finally arrived - what a long time it has taken and first class post too. I was beginning to think it had gone via Australia.

  5. You're a nurse, John, what in blue blazes made you tackle the the card delivery in your condition in the damp? Sometimes, I swear, you need a keeper.

  8. You should know better than to go out in the damp after you've had a chest infection ! Hopefully you'll be on the mend, now you have that very nice new hat to wear.
    Hate to say this, but looking at the photo of that depressing muddy track, it reminds me of one of the reasons we left the UK for a warmer climate!

  10. Didn't you think that it would be better to do it when the weather was better? Or is it just not going to get better till spring? It wasn't a very bright thing to do though, was it!!

  12. I'm not sure the weather would hurt you, the fresh air would likely do you good. Just don't get overtired and run down. Good on you for hand delivering your cards. I'd be too talky and it would take until New Year's to get through the visiting part.

  13. To my non-Welsh ears (or pronunciation), the road to Ochr Y Gop looks exactly as it sounds.

    1. It literally means " side of the gop" the gop being the name of the hill

  14. my big question is: do you walk on the muddy part of the road or do you walk on the grass and risk it all wearing out?

  15. I love the idea of hand delivering cards. Like jenny_o, it would take me an age though.
    I do hope your chest infection settles, and love your new hat.

  16. Saw a perfect jumper for you in H & M with a bulldog wearing antlers on it. Sorry not good at pictures.

  17. To few of us live in a place where you can hand deliver Christmas cards and not be suspected of being a bit odd.

  18. We have to mail almost all of our cards. Stamps ahoy

  19. I love how knitted together you are with your neighbors and town events. It's one of the reasons I enjoy your blog so much. My neighbor dropped off a small loaf of potica (Slovenian bread) at my door this week. It's her Christmas tradition with her neighbors and I look forward to it every year.

  20. however, building one's muscle tissue isn't always as easy as it looks on those limitless product infomercials that promote device, dietary supplements, and other additives of the muscle building industry. http://musclegainfast.com/ef13-muscle-supplement/

  21. I see that aftermath of rain, a muddy path, and yet that photo looks idyllic. I'm fascinated that people actually live as you do. As a child, I read about such places in books. What different worlds we inhabit, you and I. Thank you for sharing yours.
