Weather has been a bit unpredictable of late, so we were prepared for a few showers, which we got. I managed to sneak a morning off by myself to Newtown to have a rummage around the charity shops, whilst hubby stayed in bed watching Not Going Out on his ipad! I got some pretty things which I'll show next time.
We visited a couple of castle sites, one at Dolforwyn and the other at Montgomery.
We also wandered round the towns of Bishops Castle and Montgomery - I think we want to move here! Bishops Castle had been yarnbombed, I was in my element! And the bookshop stocks Pretty Nostalgic magazine too!

In 1988 Katherine Swift arrived at the Dower House in Morville to create a garden of her own. This beautifully written, utterly absorbing book is the history of the many people who have lived in the same Shropshire house, tending the same soil, passing down stories over the generations. Spanning thousands of years The Morville Hours takes the form of the medieval Books of Hours. It is a meditative journey through the seasons, but also a journey of self-exploration. It is a book about finding one's place in the world and putting down roots.
This is so not my normal read, but I am loving it and I highly recommend it!
Thank you and welcome to my new followers, it's lovely to meet you all on here.
Are you having a good summer holiday too?
