The pile of books I’ve been working my way through during the holidays.
All taken at Lake Vyrnwy today.
Just had the chance to get some new photos up on my Flickr account.
Here’s a view of the flooding we had in Llansantffraid earlier this month:
This is St. Bridget’s church in the village (Llansantffraid means ‘Church of St. Bridget’), where Jnr Briggs performed spectacularly as Joseph in the crib service on Christmas Eve:

We returned to the Long Mynd today, for a stroll. Also, we were road testing the new rucksack we bought with some vouchers we received for the wedding. We had an excellent time and the backpack was just what we were after: i.e. it was big.
We walked along the hill to Lightspout Waterfall, which at only 4 metres high doesn’t quite seem to deserve the nickname “miniature Niagara” which Victorian visitors gave it. Still, it was a fairly gentle walk, with only a couple of drag-yourself-along-with-your-hands moments, which only add to the fun anyway. Once we reached the waterfall we stopped for refreshments, though some steps led to a further walk, which we might try sometime.
Good fun though, and as ever we left promising to come back sooner than this time was. That makes sense, right?
I recently did what I have been meaning to do for a while, and created a Flickr set of my favourite photos (that I’ve taken). It’s a bit annoying that Flickr doesn’t give the set URLs a more human look, but there we go.
I’ll start posting photos from this set on here now and again – probably when other stuff is a bit slow. Here’s the first one, a view of the gardens at Powys Castle, and beyond:
