What a busy few days!

Monday morning saw our daughter and her two daughters arrive in Mold-chez nous- for two nights.We soon set off for Llangollen going via the Horseshoe Passwhich is pretty spectacular.Into Llangollen ,visited the Wharf ,a World Heritage site, then the Art Exhibition,lunch overlooking the River Dee and then onto Froncysyllte Aqueduct.This is the tallest navigable aqueduct in the world!!After that we called at Valle Crucis Abbey and then home to recover.
Tuesday saw us off to Conway.C,Sarah,Emily and Ruby walked the walls,another WH site,looked at Edward the Firsts Conway castle,went in the Smallest House in GB,home via Llandudno and then out to eat at night.
Wednesday was a walk around our local market,a quick lunch and then off to try and find Emily school shoes.She is 12 and I can remember this when Sarah was 12.She kept saying "sorry Mum" for what she put me through!We failed and S ended up going into Chester to Schuh where she was successful.
Today.A level results.As some of you know our eldest granddaughter has had a difficult nine months suffering from depression etc.At one point we didn't think she would even do her A levels but she did and she got 3 As and 1C and has had her place at Manchester University confirmed for Sept 2018.She is having a year out ,working to earn some money and do some travelling.Phew ,what a relief.Plus, the bonus is that she will only be an hour away from us so we will,hopefully,see a lot more of her.Now she is four hours away.She is going to do American Studies.

I shall sleep well tonight.!!!
