Peace at last!

Grandma and Grandad gave us a fantastic present this month, by offering to have Hannah, Thomas and Will to stay for a weekend, while Ruth and I went away for some much needed peace and quiet!

We didn't need to be asked twice, so we jumped in the car and headed off to a beautiful little cottage near Hereford. And, we spent pretty much the whole weekend stuffing our faces with food that we didn't have to share with the kids - nice chocolates, delicious biscuits, chinese takeaway...!


We did get some exercise, though, in the form of a freezing cold walk along part of Hay Bluff. The views were terrific...


...but it looks like Ruth is feeling the cold!


We ended our walk with a drive into Abergavenny to find a warm coffee-shop, with more delicious cakes!

The cottage where we stayed had some beautiful views, too!


Don't feel too sorry for the children, though. They had a fantastic time at Grandma's, and even had pancakes for breakfast on one of the days!

Mummy's little helper

We've been decorating the front room this week, while Hannah and Thomas have been in school, so that they don't try and 'help'! Unfortunately, Will isn't in school yet, and he was pleased to give us his advice and show us how it was done!

Room with a view

For some strange reason, known only to them, Hannah, Thomas and Will have taken to drinking their morning milk on seats looking out of the patio doors into the garden!


Perhaps they're dreaming of a Summer, when they might actually get a chance to play in the garden...
