Up, up, up.......

Home again. Back from our jollidollidays to N Wales. And we had a great time.
Great campsite.
Good weather (most of the time ;o) )
Up and down castle turrets.
Meandering along lakesides.
The most spectacular scenery.
Oh and we climbed Mount Snowdon.......REWIND.......yes, we climbed Mount Snowdon. All the way to the top. 10 mile round trip....uphill....7 hours. We were going to get the train (yes, they have a little steam train that goes nearly to the summit) but then we thought it would be nice to have a little wander.......yeah wahteva !!!!! 3/4 of the way up I was in the midst of one of those days when you can't even envisage the end of the day. It was like on of those queues at Alton Towers where you think the next corner will be the end but it actually only leads to another corner. It was really hard work.

After all that though, reaching the top was fantastic. A test and an achievement. Lots of times I could have given up but I didn't. And something that doesn't happen very often....I am proud of myself (& my Kevy).

Right, now for those that may be in doubt that I actually got to the summit, here is the dial on the summit













and if you are still in doubt......would I really look this rough if I had got the train up, come on, really !!!!!











Here we are......at the summit.














More good news.....looks like I have got into University !!!!!! Just need the confirmation letter but the admissions lady said it was all ok so far, should know 100% by next week :o)

Off to watch BB eviction and scrap.
Peace x
