Having had a bad start to 2017, with mum passing away in May, I was really looking forward to sharing a week away with the family.
We travelled to a lovely place in Hereford and stayed in a beautiful cottage called Oaklea. Our neighbours were sheep and more sheep. The scenery was amazing, so breathtaking.
We arrived on Saturday afternoon, to a welcome pack of a homemade Victoria Sponge, some tea, coffee, sugar, milk and eggs. We unpacked the car and just sat and relaxed, breathing a huge sigh of this is it, time to recharge our batteries.
On Sunday we decided to take it easy, the sun was shining so we took time to take in the scenery and spent some time with the kids.
On Monday, we drove to Abergavenny for a couple of hours, looking around the shops and had a spot of lunch. It was just nice not to worry about anything.
Tuesday, we left early and drove to Dan yr Ogof Showcaves, Jayne didn’t know, and when she saw the big dinosaur sign she cheered. It was a wonderful day, we were shattered by the time we got home, but it was so worth the trip.
Wednesday, we went to Beacon and had a wander around and Joe was in his element in the little bookshop that we found the last time we were there.
Thursday was a relaxing day and we spent it playing games.
Friday we went back to Abergavenny and had a lovely lunch in a Wetherspoons which we didn’t realise was one, then went back to the cottage and packed ready for our travelling back home.
It was such a wonderful holiday, the weather was good to us, except for the nighttime rain and wind.
