Bolas De Fraile, it is hard for me to type it. Is "Bolas" a good nick-nick-name to use? It seems maybe not.

You are brave to subject yourself to this DC idea, and I admire you for being there for your mother.

When I think of Wales I think of beautiful shorelines and quaint fishing villages. What do you do for fun there...do you fish? photography? garden?

Re my name, It was given to me by a Catalan Student when we were running from Madrid, it was a ref to Friar Tuck.
My Mum, we looked after her for a few years at our house, at 93 yrs old she needed better care than we could provide, we then moved her with her consent to a fantastic care home near the family home. We then sold our house and moved in here and remodeled it. We see my Mum every day, we made a promise to her that she will die here. The chef at the care home was best young chef of Wales twice, he was trained in pattiserie at the five star Grosvenor Hotel Chester.

I live in North Wales so I we would have to drive about 100 miles onto the Lleyn to get your vision Molly.
Hobbies because of my leg injury and my Mum are restricted to home, so its gardening and cooking and making sure my wife who I love more today than when we met and that shook me like a perfect right hook.
This was wahat I liked to do, with some other pics I like, my mum when young then at her 93yr birthday lunch.
