Pasg Hapus!

S’mae, pawb, dwi’n ol! Hello, everyone, I’m back! (Just in time for Easter)

Well, that was a crazy few weeks. The concert went well, even allowing for the fact that the trumpeter was sitting right next to me! I’m so glad we had a rehearsal with the 20-piece orchestra as I was completely taken by surprise when he started playing, I actually jumped… That wouldn’t have been good in the final performance.

My Easter Crafternoon was a success. Only about a dozen of us this time, but everyone enjoyed themselves. I decided to do an origami Easter basket (which you can find here: but I used 12×12 papers as the one on the blog was quite small. I also bought some cheap kits from The Range in case anyone decided they didn’t want to do the origami. So glad I did, as about half of them decided it was too complicated for them. I got some ‘make your own wreath’ kits and some pre-cut Easter baskets. I thought it was quite an easy origami project, but then I’ve been doing it since I was about 10. Maggie, if you’re reading this, do you remember us doing origami in Mr Aylett’s class at Ashcombe Primary?

We also made some cards. Some were Easter, some weren’t. I don’t seem to have taken any pics of the card making, but here are some from the origami table.

On Tuesday this week, Kevin & I went to the Conwy Seed Fair. It’s an annual thing held on 26th March (or the nearest day if this falls on a weekend). There’s an annual Honey Fair on September 13th, too. These fairs started over 700 years ago. Before lockdown, I used to go to both of these, but haven’t been to either since! It was Kevin’s first time. The seed fair is generally all about plants, although some honey is also sold. I bumped into a local author (Eleri Thomas) that I met a couple of years ago at a craft/book fair. I bought her first book last year when I met her again. She’s now published her 2nd book, so I bought it. Her first one is called Treasured Valley and the new one is Relative Justice. They’re all based locally. (You can buy them on Amazon or locally at Hinton’s Bookshop, Conwy; Penmaenmawr Museum; or Betty’s Cafe, Penmaenmawr.

This afternoon (Easter Saturday) we strolled down to West Shore beach, ostensibly to have a coffee at the West Shore Beach Cafe, but saw that the local miniature railway was open, so we went on it!

It was a proper steam engine, too! It’s really fun. I always say that growing older is inevitable; growing up is optional! It was lovely and sunny. We could see that the cable cars were operating on the Great Orme. The sea was like a mill pond. Gorgeous. We could still see some snow on the top of the Carneddau mountains in Snowdonia, though. We decided against going to the West Shore Beach Cafe and walked up the bay to the new mobile cafe in a horsebox. They have wacky names for their coffees. Will try to get a pic next time.

Well, I think that’s me caught up for now. I shall try to get back into blogging and videoing regularly again on a Wednesday. Hwyl am y tro!
