A Welsh Adventure

Monday 17 November 2014

The first week of November, I finally had a week off. I don't often get to go away, in fact, it's been years since I last did, so this was a real treat. We stayed at Boffins Barn, a brand new cottage just outside of Mold in North Wales. It is in fact, so new, that we were the second people to ever stay there! It is an absolutely beautiful converted barn. It is a perfect mix of everything modern you could need, with the aesthetic maintaining the original feel of the barn. The couple who own the barn are ever so lovely and were happy to help whenever needed.

The view we woke up to everyday, just beautiful! The best bit about the barn? Two things, pets are allowed, and the gigantic super king size beds. Ashen had the time of his life! He made friends with Paddy and Charlie, the two dogs who belong to the couple who own the barn.

What a bunch of cuties right?! Paddy is a boxer cross, and Charlie is either a Norfolk or a Norwich Terrier, I'm not sure which.

As we drove towards the barn, I had this wonderful moment when I realised we were staying right near an old friend of mine, Lara, whom I hadn't seen for 8 years. I managed to scrape together enough of a phone signal to message her and we met up <3 it was like we had never been apart! So so thrilled I got to see her again. It had better not be 8 years till next time!

I did some major Christmas shopping in Chester, and managed to snag myself an incredible bargain. Stu and I spotted this tshirt at the same time and both made a beeline for it, and luckily for me, there was one left in my size!

Seriously. £3 for a tshirt with Dolly Parton's face on. Primark, I don't often say this, but I love you. Best tshirt ever,

It was the best holiday I've had in years, super relaxing, lots of fun, and surrounded by my family and my love, what more could I want? Except for maybe a second week!

Much love,
Kitty xxxx
