This is a picture of the master bedroom, the bed is very comfortable.
The best thing of all though is this view from the front door and it's what the weekend is all about - peace and quiet.
It really is very beautiful here and we have been so lucky with the weather. It was scorching hot yesterday and today the sun is shining with a light breeze. The birds are happy and chirping, the cows are mooing and the sheep are bleating. I'm not sure I want to go home, except I miss my sewing machine.
Yesterday we visited the Centre for Alternative Technology on the outskirts of Machynlleth. Set in stunning surroundings the whole site is a thought-provoking exhibition of the dangers of and remedies for global warming. After starting with a water-driven cliff-railway ride, we (well Neil actually) sampled waterless toilets and (both of us of course!) organic ice-cream. The whole site is like a giant Science Museum with inter-active demonstrations and exhibitions with lots of things to pull, twist and push. With no children evident Neil felt it his duty to push, pull and twist every knob! He even ran on a treadmill, which anyone who knows Neil will understand was something of a feat...
