Well its been another very Busy Day

Today has been another busy day with the boys. On Tuesday we took them to Bristol Zoo, and we were so lucky with the weather we only once got caught in a small shower, and even then it was a quick run to the monkey house for cover.

Todays trip was to the Big Pit, in Blaenavon its not far from Abergavenny, and its high in the Brecon Beacons. I was a bit scared about going down into the mine but I did go and although it was a bit wet and slippery it really did show how difficult it was for the miners to work in such awful conditions.

My grandsons found the kit that they had to wear was extremely heavy and very uncomfortable, but with a little help from me the youngest did manage to do the round trip and seemed to have enjoyed the experience.

The photo above was taken just before we entered the lift that was going to take us down to the level that was open to the public, I hope that you like what you see. I will be back hopefully on Monday to do my blogging and to visit all of my usual haunts. Thank you so much for visiting me to see whats been happening, Ive missed you all as much as it seems youve done me. Bless you all with love and hugs Shirleyxxxxx
