Aberdyfi and Back

Plans were afoot on Sunday for a bike ride with Colin. We were going to head north, along Tal-y-Llyn and then around to Tywyn and Aberdyfi before heading back home. However, wind was forecast as well so maybe I should go windsurfing instead. Sure enough, Sunday dawned bright and windy and I had to make...

Dragons in the Garden

It’s been blowing a hoolie here for the last few days thanks to our local Katabatic wind known as Ivor. That doesn’t seem to have stopped the dragonflies though and there have been quite a few in the garden. I’ve only ever had my phone with me when I’ve been out there so I haven’t...

A Nice Tidy Desk

With the arrival of my new iMac I thought it was a good opportunity to give my desk a bit of a tidy too. Not only that but I’ve treated myself to a new desk pad that works as a mouse mat. It even has LED lights around it which are quite funky! Migration of...

A New Pergola

When I got carried away in the garden earlier in the month I removed an old pergola that I’d built. Being creatures of habit, rather than go with something else in its place, we decided to replace it with another quite similar structure. The pieces arrived on Monday so as soon as there was a...

Cherry Framework and WordPress 5.5

This is going to be a bit of a geeky post for the usual readers of this site so feel free to skip if you want. I’m posting it here though as it maybe of use to people who are having issues with their WordPress based websites using the Cherry Framework. The Cherry Framework, Cherry...
