I'm back from my holiday and I'm feeling pretty miserable about it actually! I had such a nice time, I've definitely got a case of the I-don't-want-to-go-back-to-work blues... The place I visited was a small town in Wales called Hay on Wye, which is famous for having more bookshops per person than any other place in the world! If you like secondhand books, pub lunches, poking around vintage shops and drinking tea then I think you'd love it in Hay. Every year they have a literary festival, which I wasn't lucky enough to go to this year, but I really want to go next year.

Amazing photographs may I say. I really do love the one with the bags hanging amongst the pot china, looks like a real treasure trove. x
