So rewind to last Autumn and this is me!

Matt and I decided that we should have a few days away together to take stock before our lives changed forever so off we trotted to Wales to stay at Argoed Mill booked through Under the Thatch which was absolutely beautiful.

We had a lovely time sitting by the wood burning stove and doing basically very little!

I did manage to exercise my crochet hook bit and a baby blanket started to take shape...

We also ventured out to the Red Kite Centre to watch feeding time which was amazing and slightly Hitchcockian at the same time...

And we did a little bit of walking and drinking in the gorgeous Welsh countryside:

It seems like another life now as we knew it would. For one thing Argoed Mill has the comfiest bed in the world and we slept and slept. With sleep now a distant memory I look back on that trip with a warm glow because for all that we used to have the freedom to laze about on holiday and lie in, I wouldn't change where we are now for the world. Now holidays are about being a family and discovering everything anew through our son's eyes. It was fabulous being us two but even better being us three.

  1. How funny, last December we retreated to the Wye Valley for a pre baby moon! Ah, doesn't it seem like 1000 years ago, just like you said. Your pictures look gorgeous and are such a lovely memento to think back too. Gorgeous.
