We just got back from a lovely weekend in Wales visiting Emma and Mark.

We arrived on Friday night to a warm welcome, and as ever a delicious meal. We visited Tintern Abbey and the town of Chepstow on Saturday.

Saturday night was yet another good meal as they went to Thailand last December and took cooking classes so we were the lucky beneficiaries of wonderful homemade thai green curry. We eat so well when we visit them! And the wine was flowing and it was a good night post-Oliver’s bedtime.

On Sunday we went in to Cardiff, and shopped at the Riverside Market. Mark and I bought some yummy sourdough from a French baker and some Welsh goats’ cheese to go with. I grilled it with some tomatoes for lunch today and was in heaven.

We had lunch with them in Cardiff at a cafe but had to cut the visit short as it was Mark’s last day to fly his plane on his UK license.
