Hello lovely peeps, are you having a good week ?
We've been away for a little sojourn to beautiful South Wales - the Gower peninsula, to be precise.
Having lived in the Midlands for almost 6 years now, you'd think we'd have explored Wales too by now. But besides a day in Cardiff to watch an SA v Wales rugby match a few years back, we'd never actually ventured across the border so thought it was high time we did. That, and we really wanted to take the two most-adorable-pups-in-the-world to the beach. Living where we do, right in the middle of this big island of the UK, we're about as far away from the coast as one can get. So we packed up the car and headed south-west.
It poured with rain all the way there but then for the rest of the time, the sun shone and we had a glorious few days exploring this "area of outstanding natural beauty" in the Gower region. Our home was a beautiful converted barn, literally a short walk (albeit a steep one) from Slade beach. Seriously peeps, if you're ever looking for a place to stay in the area, look no further - Slade Barn is simply lovely. It had everything we needed, and then some - and very dog-friendly too.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing time . . . wending our way around the coast from Mumbles and Oxwich Bay to Port Eynon and Rhossili (definitely my favourite place), and we left for home with a promise that we'll be back again some day.
Oh, and I did find some time for making too . . . a little bit of knitting, and my first ever attempt at needlepoint tapestry - so I'll be back to tell you all about that soon.
take care of you,
