Holiday Snaps

We are having such fun exploring.  We have now moved to Herefordshire as I have always wanted to go to Hay On Wye.  Unfortunately  the book festival finished a while back, but I am sure I will still have fun browsing the second hand book shops.  We went to Bath and had a wander round - Abbey, Roman Baths etc.  It has been many years since I went to Bath and it has changed, but I had forgotten what a beautiful city it is.  I loved this art exhibition, just about sums up the British weather.

There was a lovely young lady advertising free samples of homemade fudge, I asked if they made vegan fudge and she said they did and gave me a huge sample.  Now, it would have been very rude not to buy a slab of salted caramel fudge.  I didn't know that fudge should be kept a room temperature, so instead of putting it in the cool box I put it next to my bed, Ooops it just seemed to disappear!  On reading the info supplied, it says that the fudge can last up to ten days, hahahahahaha!!

We also had the most amazing Turkish meal.  The Meze they served as a first course would have been sufficient but we had to plough through two courses of delicious food.  Note to self - hang head in shame at first Slimming World meeting after holiday!

Alfie is having an absolutely fabulous holiday.  He has even more freedom than he normally does and is walking around with a permanent smile on his face.  He is worn out by about 8, as are we, and is the first to bed every night.  As it is a strange place, he does get a little anxious if either of us disappear to the shower/loo and keeps a watch out until we return.

Today we are off to a very special village, but I will reveal more about that later.  And yep, that is me laying in bed waiting for my breakfast to be cooked and my third cup of tea to be served.  If I stay here long enough, the washing up will be done too, I could get used to this lark.


  1. I laughed out loud at your comment, fudge keeps for 10 days, lovely photos

  2. Sounds like you're all having a great time! I love fudge too but it wouldn't last with me around ;) Lovely pics and look forward to your further adventures.

  3. Marlene - I know who could not eat it before that! Xxx

    Jane - Looks like we are all the same with fudge and anyway even nibbling it, the slab wasn't that big xxxx

  4. Sounds like you're having a wonderful time! I've definitely never seen fudge last for 10 days around our house!

  5. Fudge !
    Did someone mention fudge ? I used to enjoy the Cornish Clotted Cream stuff :-)
    With all of those brollies you could skip from one to another during the showers and hardly get wet - did you try that ?

  6. I love the rain shelterd street.
    Although, I do not Think it helps much.....


  7. I can take or leave fudge, too sweet for both of us. Love the umbrellas!

  8. Jan - I think the 10 day thing is proving to be a bit of a joke on the fudge makers part!!! Xxx

    Mel - sorry I would have saved you some but it disappeared! I couldn't skip between the umbrellas, I was too busy not stepping on the lines of the pavement in case the Bears got me (I love AA Milne poems) xxx

    Ib - Luckily it wasn't raining, but today I think you would need large golf umbrellas to stop getting wet! Xxx

    DC - unfortunately I couldn't leave it ;) xxxx

  9. I'm glad you are having fun : )

  10. How great to get your hands on some vegan fudge! Yum!

  11. Ooh I missed this one before! Now I'm even more envious! Bathe and Hay on Wye! Bath is one of my favourite English cities and the Wye valley is one of my favourite parts of the country too. What a lovely holiday! Bless Alfie. He looks very diligent there! And I love the umbrella display. Good cover from the rain too :))) xxxx

  12. Thrift deluxe - it was delicious xx

    Val - we need that rain cover right now, we are very damp! Xxx
