Thank You & 1st stage of Birthday Blog Candy

I have now had 12345 hits since I started this blog just over 6 months ago  and so the blog candy offer starts here!!!

First....I cannot thank everyone enough for all the messages of concern and support for DH's operation. I'm relieved to say that it went really well and he is making a good recovery. He never complains and has put up with all the pain and immobility for so long that I'm looking forward to him getting mobile again. We both think that we are so lucky as a hip replacement is something we can get over and is far better to go through than a life threatening illness.

This will be posted as near as I can get to a certain point in my blog history. I'm giving two prizes. One for those lovely artists, bloggers, readers, now friends, who have become regulars leaving comments for me. Their imput lifts me day to day. Whoever posts nearest to 12,345 will get a sheet of UMs so I'm not posting this until my counter reaches that point.
I can now announce that the talented and lovely Dotpak , who has a great blog, posted the last message as I tipped 12345 so has won the prize for regulars!! Congratulations Dot!

The rest of the blog candy will be given to someone, from the list of anyone else, new or old who leaves a comment within the following 6 days ( I'm now 66 and therefore a new member of Neet and Mo's Clickety Clix Club) So closing will be in 6 days time at mid-day on Friday 25th June 2010

We celebrated my birthday early with a day trip, on Wednesday, to Wales where we had a wonderful meal in the Groes Inn, a 14th century coaching inn which was the first licensed premises in Wales. The food is fantastic and the views across the Vale of Clwyd are amazing.
It was so hot we sat outside so please excuse my silly but sensible sunhat!
We also visited Llandudno and I show these pics to make Neet & Jayne envious as it is one of their favourite Welsh holiday towns
The Little Orme
The Great Orme
Just look how peaceful it is!

I'm so glad the op went well, Jo. Hopefully Hubby will be up and about in no time.
Your trip to Wales looks beautiful, you were certainly blessed with the weather, what a gorgeous day. I love North Wales too but we don't get there neary enough.
That glass of wine looks delicious, a lovely way to celebrate your birthday.
Hugs Lisax
