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!
