we're back

We're back from an exhausting wedding and holiday in Spain and in true British style I'm looking out over the valley at the pouring rain while the smell of a Sunday roast pervades from the kitchen. It was raining as we stepped off the aeroplane at Bristol airport and, ever positive, Boy said 'it's raining mummy, not nice for us but good for the flowers'.

Hubby has just downloaded our photos and now I can think back to the week we have just had. I'll fill you in with wedding details later, but for now I must tell you about where we stayed. In the hills of Andulucia, about an hour from Seville you can find Finca Buen Vino. The wedding was held at the main house, which is run as an rustic/upmarket B&B by a very accommodating British family meanwhile a selection of wedding guests, including us, stayed in converted goat sheds on the same estate.
Our home was idyllic, set next to an orchard filled with goats (if only I could have recorded the sound of their bells). We had a pool, perfect size for the children and necessary in the intense heat of the day. We had home comforts, including duvets, a bath and proper armchairs and sofa but plenty of Spanish decor too. The hills and landscape were amazing, with lots of good walks to the local villages and beyond. A perfect place to relax in and explore from - if you are not there for my sister's wedding...
