But dear readers because so many of my blogging chums have set up home there and are loving it, I have decided to pop back and re-visit. Thankfully I won't be staying in a leaky tent this time.
The mister is taking me away for my birthday which is coming up soon, to stay in Bernard Ashley's old country house, Llangoed Hall. It's very close to Hay-on-Wye, which we've been longing to visit, but haven't managed to thus far.
During my holiday research I stumbled upon this little film of rural Powys made in the 1960s when electricity was introduced to Ystradfellte. I thought you might like to see it. The film has been digitised by experts at the National Library of Wales. The dear little old lady at the end of the film is my favourite.
Also just to remind all you folk who drop by my site, if you haven't voted for me yet in the UK Blog Awards, please do. It only takes about 30 seconds. Just click on the awards logo top right and it will take you through to my page. Thanking you kindly.
