Back in the land of the English...

Phew. Just arrived back from not-at-all-sunny Snowdonia where I've have lived in self-imposed exile for the past week.

In order to get that true mountain living experience I took a laptop with DVD player, watched a load of DVDs (Usual Suspects, Heat, Band of Brothers) and occasionally emerged to walk down to the cafe for something sweet and unhealthy to eat. The others were generally far healthier and took long constitutional walks. Bah!

One highlight was the Rheilffordd Ffestiniog Railway which went "Chuff" a lot. No seriously - it did. Then we had a cup of tea in Porthmadog and then came home, with a brief stop at Whittington Castle and an explore of Oswestry's one-way system (just say no!).

My choccy of choice was Cadbury's Whole Nut (support local companies and all that) and savoury of choice was Cheese Fondue (had a strange Lager one last ngiht which was nice).

Anyway - back to the office next week, and a whole lot of other things to sort out to get my life back on track. Just still have that holiday feeling and no desire to give it up just yet...
