Northern Lights

Thanks to Beatrice Charles for telling me about this competition. The prize is £50 of book tokens and you've got plenty of time to write the required 500 words.

In case you were wondering, the picture in my last post was of Llanogwen, in North Wales. It's one of our favourite stops with the van. This picture is of another - Holyhead. The sheep you can see are pale in colour and not very heavy ... You know, light.

    1. Like meringues, Alex. Not very like them, but a bit.

  2. Patsy, how do you know the sheep are light? Have you tried picking them up? Not so long ago, people used to be hanged for that kind of thing.

    1. Are you making up your own jokes, R Mac? (Wouldn't blame you!)

  4. That's hilarious, northern lights. I think I actually prefer these ones to the psychedelic ones everyone makes such a fuss over. Give me a happy sheep any day to a light in the sky...Thanks for the link.

    1. Thanks, Suzy. I like the lights in the sky type, but a happy sheep is nice too.

  5. Beautiful! Love the cute sheep. :)
    I've actually been to Wales. :) My sister did a semester abroad there and my other sisters and I went to visit her. It was lovely.

  6. I should have know it might have been Wales as we've been to the north a lot (sister-in-law lives there) and I always say it reminds me of Scotland!

    1. I'm going to Scotland later in the year, Rosemary. Maybe it'll remind me of Wales?

  12. Thanks for the comp info, I'll probably have a go.
    We used to live in Wales, surrounded by very clever sheep. They worked out how to get over cattle grids and seemed to have a sixth sense that alerted them to any garden gate left open for a second. A real nuisance at the time, but I miss them now.

    1. Sheep can be pesky, Linda. My dad had some for a while and they were troublesome critters.
