June in Bloom Excursion (Taff Trail)

Wild rose by the station carpark
(The Taff Trail is a wide tarmac path on this stretch, although barriers to stop bicycles freewheeling all the way down to Cardiff mean it's not always easily wheelchair or pushchair accessible. It's suitable for all ages of children.)

A good walk with a superb pub in striking distance, this excursion is an excellent stretching of the legs. On the way up, there is a slight incline to make your muscles work harder. To meander more gently downhill as you come back down is proper.

Kitchen sink drama

Pisarro's 'In the Garden at Pontoise:
A young woman washing dishes'. 
From Art for Art's Sake.
OMG! I finally cleaned the sink! No, I don't mean I wiped quickly round the surface of it, I mean I properly cleaned it.
