We're back from France.

Actually we have been back over a week but we have been so busy.We had a full day trip to Dudmaston Hall near Bridgnorth with our Art Appreciation Group.It houses great collection of modern and contemporary art plus wonderful sculptures in the garden.We had a night out on Thursday with a gang of our local friends then Friday is was off up the M56 to meet up with 5 of my college friends and their husbands.We meet twice a year and it is amazing after all this time( I won't say how long!) that we are all still alive and with the same partners.Saturday morning saw my brother in law coming to stay until today.He spends most of his time in Kenya but also has a UK base in Newcastle on Tyne.Sarah and family came over on Sunday to join us.So it has been pretty hectic dealing with all this and trying to catch up with mail,washing ,garden etc.
We had a good time in France.The weather was mixed but not the rain we expected.In fact, no rain until the last day.We are off to Croatia on July 10th for a week.The first package holiday we have done in years.I'd better get together another set of books.Any recommendations?


  1. You're always so busy ... I don't know how you fit it all in! Are you going to show us your photos of France?
    We'll be going there at the end of July ... can't wait!!!

  2. Glad to have you back - did you get much knitting done or was it all fun, fun, fun?
