I have just had the most fabulous long weekend with some wonderful women friends. What an absolute tonic it was - I never stopped laughing from beginning to end.
We stayed at Kite Hill Yurts - which are located on top of a hill on the edge of Wales - truly stunning.
The setting is just perfect; the views, the walks, the trees - and even a Welsh rainbow - wonderful.
And there were Alpacas too - and a top bar bee hive! Everything was sustainable - compost loos, solar powered hot shower, drinking water piped from a spring - oooh - I loved it a lot!! Can you tell I liked it?
One of the reasons we went there was to visit Wonderwool Wales - a festival of all things fibre. I didn't really take many photos here, as I was so busy nosing around, but I did have a long chat with the owner of the little Shetland ewe lamb there...I think they would do well on our island too!
After a lovely day of leisurely browsing, a tired but happy band of ladies headed back up the mountain with their new stash,
And very soon hands were busy casting on new projects, or learning to knit for the first time!
We had a day out in nearby Hay-on-Wye, the most amazing town - full of bookshops! Booths was my favourite - exactly what a bookshop should be - with a fantastic cafe, too. These were without doubt, the best chips I have ever had - dipped in their homemade äioli - a dreamy combination.
But time stops for no one - and all too soon I was sitting in the airport, waiting, with my new knitting, of course.
Lots of love to all the Yurt ladies, Denise, Dawn, Theresa, Gill, Lou, Kim and Lucy - and to Katie, Dominic and their sweet, sweet baby - thank you all - for an unforgettable weekend.
