Big House Landshipping

Personal Reflections on the Big House Landshipping Pembrokeshire Restoration Project


Recovery Time

I’ve started my post-baby diet and exercise regime.

As of three days! I’m sticking to three sensible meals a day (no more nibbling on cakes) and I’m getting in a power walk each day and an exercise programme every other day.

It’s scary doing exercises after surgery - lots of aches and pains, but I feel NOT doing them would be more damaging.

Hope I don’t give myself a hernia in the process! Yesterday we went over to the house at Landshipping and watched the sun go down from the quayside.

Very nice it was too. The bird-life was enchanting - we saw (and heard) the curlews swooping in, the gulls and geese too, and then a lone heron flew down for his tea.

Elaina and I went for a power walk up the lane parallel to the river and it was really lovely. Not a man-made sound to be heard, just bird song as the sun went down on the moored boats and the tide rushed in.

The sky was reflected perfectly and the whole scene looked worthy of an oil painting. We adjourned to the pub for some breast feeding and a pint. Met a loud family from Cardiff who, it transpired, travel down every weekend to enjoy the area.

They were a lovely bunch, and no doubt we’ll be bumping into them again. Then we drove home via Narberth, just to have a look. Elaina seems quite happy about our plans.

We even talked about little jobs she could get in the area. Last night little Geraint slept on top the quilt between us.

He’s so lovely. I was semi-awake – can’t help keeping one eye on him - and by 3am he was awake and kicking until about 6. Alun then got up to make use of the dry conditions to cut the lawn.

After I cooked breakfast we were busy for most of the morning. Elaina and I prepared lunch and then we all spent the afternoon in front of a huge log fire, talking about future plans. Big House here we come.
