West of the Moon tour (10)

After two days escaping into the Brecon Beacons (the weather was glorious and the views from the top of  Pen-y-Fan, which is nearly 3000 ft high, sublime) - I feel almost as though I really have been on an adventure like Bilbo's or Frodo's, journeying up mountains... and so it's lovely to reach the Homely House of the Book Maven, presided over by wise, welcoming, and magical writer herself, Mary Hoffman.

It seems a suitable point to stop, sit down in a comfortable chair, and chat about trolls and fearsome Viking warriors.  But don't worry, we're safe here, they can't get in.

  1. Have purrowled around after you - so much fun! Thankyou.

  2. In fact there ought to be a constellation named after you!
