I am busy with the team at the moment working with the Cambrian Mountains Initiative getting ready with all of the design challenge entries to exhibit at Hay Festival next week. For other venues in the future where we will be exhibiting the collection over the next few months look here.

Well, the design challenge has taken me to new places and yesterday I had the chance to drive through the Elan Valley to a meeting at the visitors centre there.

The weather was rubbish! The day before I had been overheating in my boots and jumper, yesterday I left the house wearing Linen trousers and sandals. I spent the day freeeeeezing!

I also forgot to take my digital camera but I stopped on the way back at various points to take photos on my iphone. So the quality isn’t great, but I just wanted to share with you the beauty of the region.

I will most definitely be returning soon, with my camera, walking boots and a few walking friends (oh and my two Labradors of course)!
