The house we stayed in was magnificent, filled with curiosities and history.
|The dining room|
|One of the living rooms!|
|I wore my new maxi dress and pretended I was in a period drama.|
|The mountains before Dolgellau|
|We went on daytrips to a few different places, when we could tear ourselves away from lounging around the house:|
|Portmerion was more surreal than I remembered|
|Magical mossy woods|
|Baby running on the beach|
|I had a birthday...|
|And a birthday cake! I'm now 27.|
|We could hear this waterfall from our bedroom|
|Chomping on my ice cream cone|
|The abandoned cottage in the grounds of Plas yn Rhiw|
|In the mines at Llechwedd Slate Caverns|
My son was incredibly well behaved and brilliant on his first ever holiday.
Until our car broke down today I was anticipating holidaying for a few more days at my father's house in Oxfordshire but as we can't get there now it's back to reality next week.
I have a whole week to prepare for my son's first birthday party. How long can I stretch out preparing sausages on sticks and making a cake......?
