Didn't we have a lovely time.....

...the weekend we went to Hay-on-Wye.

What a fabulous place: beautiful countryside, extremely friendly people, delicious food, fantastic accomodation, no chain stores, and 100s of book shops, and only an hour or so from home.

We discovered Gooseberry Crumble and custard.

 We discovered a bookshop whose interior is the inside of a transylvanian church.

I stood in the sunshine waiting for DH whilst admiring the cottages.

And we discovered our favourite bookshop, not only does it have a fabulous cafe where I ate 3 different types of toasted bread with blackberry and apple jam accompanied by a proper hot chocolate made with melted dark chocolate, they also have resident cats, sofas, rocking chairs.....oh and a fab selection of books.

What more could we want.......we are going back soon x

What a cute bookshop! But I worry about those books on the floor now that we had that office flood. Those are the first things ruined! LOL!
