Portmeirion madness

I've just returned from a 5 day trip to Portmeirion in Wales. Me and 8 of my mates stayed in a cottage just outside the village called Dorlan Goch and it was truly beautiful. We laughed and laughed all week and not a cross word was said, thats pretty special when theres 9 crazy people living in such close quarters. I've not had the best start to the year, nothing horrible has happened however there has been a large number of setbacks and hassles I've had to deal with, just as I get myself back on my feet something else happens! So this break was just what I needed.

I've never been to Portmeirion before and did'nt really know much about it apart from the 1960's programme The Prisoner was filmed there. Well its a magical almost fairytale type of village with lots of colour and different types of buildings. Here take a look!

ABC Awards

I was delighted to find out this week that I have a nomination from the Australian Bear Creations Awards, for my little bear "Winter Pickings".

After a stressful week due to a broken down car, this was welcome news and its really put a smile on my face. All the nominees will be published in the May edition of the magazine, theres some truly amazing creations so picking favorites is going to be very hard.
