Well it's been a while since our last blog. We have been so busy renovating the new cottage, which we are pleased to say is nearly finished. The bedroom is fantastic, really spacious and light and the bathroom is turning out better than we'd hoped with it's double ended 'his and hers' bath. We have had a few ups and downs but has been well worth the blood and sweat, and yes many many tears!! A real mix of weather has helped and hindered, a dusting of snow mean't we got the chance to try out the new multi fuel wood burning stove, lovely and toasty warm. Billy (our dog) just took everything in his stride, as usual. He loves 'helping' us and really enjoyed the sunshine we had a couple of weeks ago. The Moelwyn mountains look stunning all year round but there is something majestic about them when there is a dusting of snow on the peaks.
