Brrrrrr...... It's been very chilly here in Derbyshire. We've escaped the terrential weather that's made some parts of the country inaccesible. After the festivities I ventured to Wales, much to the horror of family and friends who thought I must be bonkers due to the weather!
My niece and I went to the North. Criccieth. It has a lovely bay and the remains of a Castle nested above the beach. The sun shone on us while we were playing on the beach. We made sure we had fun whatever the weather. We were really lucky and the roads stayed clear while we were there....
On the journey home we stopped of at Conw'y on the Northern coast of Wales.
It's a walled town with the remains of the castle, A lovely little harbour and nestled amongst the cottages is the Smallest House in Britain. It was under renovation so we weren't able to venture inside!
Stopping off at my favourite tea room!...
And I'd never pass Chester without dropping in. Another walled town with the river running through it, cobbled streets and an abundance of eateries and pretty shops and a beautiful Cathedral and Gardens
I plan to hibernate on most of the chilly evenings and catch up with my knitting. George found a new home at Christmas along with a bunch of other guys down at Teddybearscottage! I shall pop some items in the Teddybearscottage Shop at the end of January.
