What beautiful weather we have had this weekend! The Guinea Pigs Dexter & Bracken have enjoyed their large run out on the lawn; probably their first ever time on grass! Being rescue piggies and less than a year old they have been indoors over the Winter and have been waiting for some warm weather. Yesterday they wouldn't venture out of their hidey house at all, but today braved their first steps on to grass - they did look bewilded! I watched from my vintage deckchair;
I've wanted one of these for absolutely ages, but have always just got away on ebay or been just a little too expensive, so you can imagine my joy when i came across this one in my favourite vintage shop in town for just £6!! SIX POUNDS! I couldn't believe it! The canvas is still strong with just a few damp spots which doesn't spoil it a bit; i snapped it up the minute i saw it and carried it all the way home!
Yesterday the weather was just as glorious, so after a morning spent doing the usual household chores and pegging out 3 loads of washing we decided to take a picnic tea and go for a sunny walk up to the Elan Valley Dams. It was a perfect afternoon, i was so glad that we took the camera;
Baby Boy had a lovely time, wide awake in his pram with his little sun hat on!;
On the way back to the car we walked past the old Church, still in use, doesn't it look beautiful!;
This is the wonderful view from the Church; wouldn't it be a fantastic place to get married don't you think? Imagine the lovely photographs;
We took 50 photographs in all, i'm very pleased with them, hubby wants to turn some of them in to canvas prints, they will look wondeful on our dining room wall. I feel very lucky to live where we do, the Elan Valley is just 15 minutes drive from home, and is a wondeful place to walk. We had a yummy picnic tea before heading home, Summer has come early!
I hope you have all had a lovely sunny weeekend too xx
