Catch up time

I suppose summer break from work... is a good time to catch up on blogging?
I have a few weeks rough on the health front, and an extremely busy one this week.
My friend Blue is over from USA, and another friend, 13, came to stay on Monday evening, very late. I have driven further this week than I had in the previous 4 months! I do tend to walk when possible.I think Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday might be just as busy, so I should take this weekend to recharge my batteries, lol!
I'll blog more about the week's activities later.
I have catch ups on various other blogs to do as well. I have read 12 books since I last posted on BAA.

best pubs?
I wonder if they are really the best pubs in UK?
I do know of two others that could possibly make it onto this list.
One being the Ty Coch Inn at Porth Dinllaen, as it is on the beach!
The other is closer to home, it being The Golden Ball, otherwise known as "Snatchems". It has quite a history, as drinkers can be cut off there at high tide, at certain times of the year. The Press Gang would make it one of their "ports of call" and it is rumoured that they would "recruit" drunks stranded there, and by the time the "recruit" had sobered up the ship would be well at sea as the River Lune is at it's very lowest reaches there, with open sea only a matter of minutes away.
I'm sure there are many more interesting pubs that could make it onto the list.
