Well I liked it.
13th century? Wow... now that's old! Get a close-up of that next time, would you John? I'd love to see inside the rectory as well.
CathyI looked it up and was out by 100 yearsIt's 14th century
I liked it and we'll give it a 8/10. More close-ups would have earned top ratings! We'll give the commentator a 10/10 despite the audible sniffles.
Lol..I will see what I can do iris x
Thirteen century...Amazing! I enjoy history and will research your burial mound.I must say this is the first time I have heard Bosoms described as untidy.Enjoyed the tape.
Untidy bosoms...it's my age
It's lovely to get a proper feel for where you live.Until now I hadn't grasped that there was a lane between you and your land.Great video, thanks !!
Yes..that's why I thought I would give you all a guided tour
Me too ! I didn't know about the lane.I just thought you walked out the back door and into the blossoms and Ukrainian Village.Thank You so much for the tour.cheers, parsnip
Same here! This was enlightening - no wonder the chicken crossed the road. BTW, it is NOT dull and bleak - looks peaceful, historical, and wonderful.Nancy in Iowa
What Iris said...It was lovely to see a bit of my homeland again, thank you.
Thanks for the tour. Looks like a chilly autumn afternoon there!
John,Your cottage is located in a beautiful area.I love the historic church and burial grounds. It's cold here reaching 32 degree's tonight. Howcold are you there, or is it just windy and rainy?Autumn in your neck of the woods is so amazing.
Not cold here...just a bit blustery
Enjoyed that! The burial mound caught my interest - must check into that. Your home is beautiful.
It's the second largest in the uk Seehttp://www.britainexpress.com/attractions.htm?attraction=5001
Thank you. I had a look, and see that no one knows exactly why it was built ... but from the constant wind heard in your video I daresay they might have been trying to make a place to get away from it :)
Loved your video!! I would love to see a close up of that 14th century cross too! Thanks for taking the time to video and share your part of the world. I really enjoyed it. Wished I lived next door!!
Will photograph the cross for you tomorrow x
That was lovely! If I had any inkling on what to do with my lovely new android phone I would share my evening walk up our hill with you! Very blowy but as in Trelawnyd, bizarrely mild weather here in Neath (and in Swansea where I have been hacking away at the bureaucratic coal face) x
It's a date.....we will " share" our mounds
I didn't realise all your waifs and strays were the other side of the road from your cottage John. Also loved the 360degree whirl around the churchyard. I like any video of where you live - it adds to the scene. I am however worried as you sound rather breathless.
I had been marching around for a while pat.....
I, too, enjoyed that muchly. I didn't realise there was a lane between you and the Ukranian village either!! I can now picture in my mind exactly where Mary's hutch is, and the churchyard wall that people often sit on/lean on/chat over. I feel as much a part of this village, and feel I know the characters in it, as much as you do. Thank you for letting us into your delightful life.P.S. I think Winnie is absolutely gorgeous - love her goodnight kisses. She is one lucky lady.... John, so many people have taken you into their hearts because of your kindness, compassion, humour and wit. You have the rare gift of being able to see goodness in the simplest of happenings and convey it to your readers. Yours is the first blog I turn to in the morning (move over Rhonda !) to see the latest happenings in Trelawnyd.... long may you continue...
That's a very sweet thing to say
Here is my morning read too over a cup of tea & slice of toast. Wouldn't miss it for the world x
I enjoyed that! Please to post a close-up of the old prayer cross.
we have nothing of the 14th century in this country.
I like graveyards.Love,Janie
This gave me some perspective of where you live John, thanks. I am sure we have lots of 14th century artifacts here of the First Nations peoples who lived here far longer than we have before 'we' took over their lands.
I enjoyed the video. We had rain here this morning, but it cleared off and has been warmer than usual. I'm sure it'll be chilly tonight for the eclipse, but am hoping the cloud cover has moved off enough so we can see the moon darkening a bit.
Hand picked dandelions what luxury for a rabbit. she will be after selected leaves from Waitrose in winter if yor not careful.
i too was surprised that your grounds were across the lane. do you leash the dogs to take them there or can they cross on their own? do you have a back yard at your cottage? thanks for the tour!
The cottage has a small cottage garden in the rear and in the front......the dogs are always on their leads until they get to the field
That was fascinating John ~ you did a great job of showing us around ~ the allotment, prayer crosses, burial mounds and we all know how to pronounce Trelawnyd now :)
I dearly love the videos....If I can't be there to see then this is the next best thing....thank you
Great! I'd been looking on Google earth and thought that I had worked out which one had to be your cottage by its proximity to the Ukranian village. Why is it called that by the way?
Cos one villager remarked that the hen houses looked like one!
Well, I could live there. Would love to live there. Want to do a House Exchange? You and Chris could enjoy a Sad Diego vacation, and my husband John and I would take care of the ducks, chickens, turkeys, and dogs. Wow. Maybe I'll thing about it just a little.
She does a lot of work, and you get to relax. Sounds like a no-brainer.
Thank you - It is very interesting and it will be easier to follow your blog now that we have a better idea of where everything is.
Have a great weekend, John. ♥
Loved the vid! Why is that area called " bosoms"? Nice to see where the people that get to feel like friends (when I have been reading their blog for a while) live. I also love the fact that you post so often and I can read something new everytime I log on...twice a day! Off to walk the puppy now..at least it's not raining..just dull.
A good friend of mine who died this year called it bosoms.....it stuck
Tell me, do the locals know there is a " Bosoms " and Ukrainian village within the village ?
What lovely English you speak, John. It was also good for me to hear how Trelawnyd is pronounced. Strange that what you call your cottage would be known as a large house in a small South African town. Brilliant video! Greetings, Jo Tanzania
Watch out! The North Wales Tourist Board will be employing you to make their promotional videos if you carry on like this.
I loved your videos, as I always do. You live in a beautiful place.Nancy in Iowa
I love your videos (and photos) that really give me a sense of Trelawnyd. It may not seem so to you, but to me it's magical.
That's better than Google Street View!
I love comments and will now try very hard to reply to all of themPlease dont be abusive x
