Now I'll pre-warn you this is a photo heavy post - but summarises the amazing week we had in Wales. This was the view from the converted granary we were staying in!
And this was the gorgeous conservatory
We had these little guys chattering to us all week
And hubby enjoying the amazing view!
Enjoying a family tea outside
Family selfies were pretty cool during the week as well
Bodnant gardens were an amazing place to visit and only a few miles from where we were staying
This is the POEM - a mausoleum for the family - POEM standing for Place of Eternal Memory - beautiful
Discovering magical ways of inverting the view
And setting off out on the Alice trail in Llandudno!
One of the sculptures on the trail
Said 14 year old trying with all his might to win a purple minion bless him!
The fantastic Victorian pier
Images on the band stand
The teaching chair in the park
The back of the Queen and King of Hearts thrones
And the madhatters tea table
We found Tweedledum and Tweedledee
And spotted the apparent inspiration for the Carpenter and the Walrus off the coast
Together with the rabbit hole cave
And finally the Queen of Hearts!
A day trip to Anglesey found us at Plas Nwydd and this amazing mural
And finding an ancient burial mound, apparently still used today by Druids
And we went inside it
A trip to Conway and some new sculptures (if you follow my blog you'll know how much I love sculptures).
And the selfie at the top of the tower
A 180 panorama
And the UK's smallest house
The old bridge entrance to Conway!
A trip to a woollen mill and watching Welsh bedspreads being made
Where did they find those amazing coloured sheep?
Said 14 year old learning how to use a peg loom
An embroidery loom
A loom with a moving heddle
And finally the one he decided he 'needed' complete with foot peddles!
We also found Swallow falls
And documented our week in the guest book
Final day spent in a copper mine admiring the naturally occurring Malachite
And a view from the top of the Great Orme
And on the last evening the field next to us had two cows wander in and we spotted this amazing heart shape on her head!
And finally cloud watching!
It was quite honestly an amazing week, we had such a lovely time, adored where we were staying, loved the view, had great days out, were treated to an almost perfect week weather wise, had comfy beds, lots of lovely food and great company!
As always it's been a bit of a culture shock since we returned home (but that always happens). However, other gratefuls are that I left the house in a decent state when we left, so we arrived home, put away everything and popped the washing on and the house felt clean and tidy.
The great weather this week means I've caught up on washing including bedding washing which is always a positive.
Having a good natter on the phone with my Mum and catching up with my sister and niece at the weekend.
I also had a great evening with my niece looking for gifts for my sister and buying a few items to add to her prom outfit!
And it's my first week back with my old workplace, it is lovely to be back.
And that my lovely people is the week (or two) that was.
I hope your week was just as positive and productive, if you fancy joining in, then pop a post together, pop back and link up and we shall come and visit. If you don't have time or don't have a blog don't forget to count those positives - it changes your outlook on life and reminds you of all the good things that happen in every day life!
