Books & Reading Bring Back Paper Family & Days Out

A Trip to Hay on Wye

For my very first ‘Papery Peep’ link up, as part of my #BringBackPaper campaign, I’m sharing a fabulous day out that I had earlier this month…

I’ve meaning to visit Hay on Wye for years. A place full of bookshops is kind of like my mother-ship! So, this year, I decided to surprise my mum for Mother’s Day (I get my bookworm ways from her!) with a trip down there. Yes, it was a treat for me as well as for her – win, win! And the crucial part of this day trip is that we went WITHOUT the children! An unprecedented full day out without the kids, to browse books at leisure. I was looking forward to it, and it didn’t disappoint.

I loved it! There were just thousands of books for me to explore, and with a good, old smattering of stationery. We were in and out of bookshop after bookshop, as well as stopping for lunch in a sweet little bistro. I may well have come home with a fair few books, too πŸ˜‰
