  1. Good Morning Ben & Y6
    Daddy can recognise your legs in those stripy pyjamas anywhere Ben. I hope you enjoyed yur trip to the Llechwedd Slate Caverns yesterday, the stories told by the Welsh miners as you try to imagine what it was like to work there years ago are wonderful. I hope no one bumped their heads as you walked through some of the smaller passage ways. Aunt Jean lived in Porthmadog for quite a few years before you were born so the railway and surrounding area are very familiar for me. Did you drive into Porthmadog and have to pay the toll man? We can't wait to hear your stories when you get home. Enjoy Conwy Castle today and please don't come back with a sword & shield, I wonder if you'll remember that you have been there before. Jack is missing you and he broke a leg in'Has Sleaford got Talent' last night....he was so funny...he didn't literally break a leg so don't worry he can still walk. Missing you lots but not long before we see you. Lots of Love Mummy, Daddy & Jack. xxx
