The camera batteries re-charged quicker than I thought they would so I have taken a clearer picture. My very nice and helpful next door neighbours sorted out my disc problem, It Turns out thee was nothing wrong with my memory card I had just locked it, I didn't even know they could be. To test that tha was all Ruth put the card in her camera and took this photo of me. I'm standing in their living room with their immaculte garden behind me.

Now on to my nart, it's another 'church' built by the Llanovers and used to stand at the bottom of my street,Hill Street. Lady Augusta was deeply religious and firmly believed that Sunday should be a day of rest for every one, up to a point. Meals on a Sunday were all cold, cooked meats salads and piesand everything was prepared on the Saturday. The servants still had to bring it from the kitchen to the dining room but that was the extent of their Sunday work. The only fly in the ointment was church going.. The parish church was about 4 miles away and about 900 feet higher on the top of Mynyddislwyn, very hard work toget there either on foot or in a carriage, as the lady did not believe in allowing her horses to work hard either. So a Small Chapel was built on a piece of flat land in a small wood at the foot of Hill Street Cellenyn a short distance from their hose by the river. The vicar of the Parish Church would come down after the main service to hold a service in this Chapel of Ease. his name came to be applied to the whole village in time, the name Celenyn is still used for the cemetery above the village.

Having sciatica obviously makes me have a single track mind for when I read that your neighbour sorted your disc problem I immediately thought poor you, you have a back problem as well :)

Sundays sounded very torturous back then, except for the hired help who perhaps had it easy but most likely caught up on other things behind the scenes ;)
