After the hectic Trade shows...we're getting excited at all the new goodies on offer...just such a shame we have to wait until next Winter! Well this winter..if you get my drift!


We have very nearly completed all the Forward Orders, just the last couple of small ones to finish...then done! Can I book for Winter 2016 please, snow or at the very least, VERY cold weather with crisp, frosty days, full of sunshine and blue sky....perfect..thanking you in anticipation....ok, not going to hold my breathe, but you never know...


The weather today was glorious...cold, but blue sky and sun! Not one to waste this opportunity we set off to recce the walk we are helping out with during the Crickhowell Walking Festival. It is a walk to the 'Lonely Shepherd' with no other than Kenton Cool! The stone is on Mynydd Llangattock, if you are not sure which It is, its on the front of the Landranger map 161! There are various stories about it, if you want to learn more, be sure to book the walk! All the monies raised for this one is going to the Nepal Earthquake Relief fund, so whilst it costs more than the others, its going to a worthy cause, AND you get to spend quality time with a chap who has summited Everest no less than 11 times!


I must admit, Llangattock is one of my most favourite places...it is so surreal, man made but nature is claiming it back and it looks stunning....we had a great day today..the weather was perfect and I feel so much better for getting out and about...who needs gyms to work out when we have all this beauty on our very own doorstep!
