I have been home for 2 weeks and it is nice to get back into normal life. I didn't stitch much at all on holidays. We were too busy. When we were at Penny's, I did knit some socks and then made two more hats for the hospital babies when I returned.

On Wednesday, 12th July, we walked to Hay and had delicious morning tea at one of the lovely cafes. We then had a quiet day until Penny came home with little Isla. She is a delight but is a very busy 2 year old. We managed to get her fed and off to bed eventually. She is with Penny and John as her other Grandmother is very ill. She coped very well considering her parents weren't with her. On Thursday, 13th July, we visited Brecon. It was a lovely town with a cathedral and a cathedral cafe!

After visiting the castle at Caernarfen we then drove to Anglesey over the Menai Suspension Bridge. This amazing bridge was finished in 1826 and was designed by Thomas Telford.

We are home and I am still a bit jetlagged. I slept in till 10.30 today and am not sure it has made me feel better. Still I must have needed it. So to go on with the overseas adventures. On Saturday, 8th July, we had a quiet morning and then in the afternoon John took us on a wild ride down the lanes to a goat's wool shop, where the lady dyes the wool and has it made into jumpers, socks and other goodies. It was in the middle of nowhere! Bruce got some socks and Penny bought a lovely cardigan with very long sleeves! We also visited a cute old church.
On Monday, 10th July, we first went to the castle. It is absolutely amazing. Many steps and so many towers. Our flat is just up the road and it is very covenient though it is a bit damp and musty. It is the basement of one of the cute houses you can see near the river.
