Our not-entirely-intentional break from blogging has been mostly down to my new job, which is going very well, but has been pretty relentless and has meant that we've had to take some time out from printmaking for a few months.
We've just come back from a very relaxing, restorative holiday in Snowdonia. We stayed in Rhiwddolion (pronounced Ruth-0-leon), which is a semi-abandoned village in the hills above Betws-y-coed. The Landmark Trust own three properties there, and we stayed in the oldest, Ty Uchaf, built in 1685.
The house was a fifteen minute walk from the car along a very pretty (and muddy!) path, and the fields around the house are full of interesting ruined old cottages and farmhouses.
We enjoyed exploring Snowdonia and there are a lot more photos on Flickr.
