I’m on holiday!

Forgive the lack of blog time recently. I had a busy work week and then a mad rush to get us ready to come away on holiday. 

We are back in Wales. I love this beautiful country. I am sitting looking at Caernarfon Castle as I type this on my phone and we are about to head off to Anglesey Island. It is a rather grey day today but the rain has held off so far. Yesterday we had a glorious sunny day and drive up the stunning coastline to another castle at Harlech. 

Our base is once again at a  permaculture small holding near Machynlleth, the fourth time we have stayed – it is starting to feel like a second home. Our accommodation for the week is in an caravan next to a stream with ducks and some ponies for company. It is amazing value at £180 for a week and our hosts Tom and Liza couldn’t be friendlier. They also have a tiny campsite with a covered kitchen and compost toilet which is even cheaper. Check it out at http://www.yfelin.plus.com/.

There is a freezing pond too and Mr S loves to take the plunge. Not me – I am a wimp and prefer yoga on the veranda. 

It is just the peace and relaxation we need at the moment as life is so busy at home. I will breathe in the green and the quiet and take it back with me. Wish I could bottle it. Will blog again when I find some wifi but in truth it is lovely to have a break from technology too.

    I would be curious to know if the alternative technology site is still there – I was there nearly 30 years ago and found it fascinating. Enjoy your hols, it looks beautiful. Anna

      Yes it is – we are members but probably won’t go as it is frankly disappointing nowadays. It needs updating but they have put all their funds and energy into the education centre there -not very interesting for the casual visitor. I find this frustrating as there is still so much they could do to inspire people to live a more sustainable life.
