Not a Lot Happening

Mindlessly piecing the back for Blueberry Fool

Can't really get into this sewing business at the moment.

We are getting ready for the first holiday we've had in years.

The Young One breaks up tomorrow and as a reward for her wonderful marks for her Brevet Blanc (except Maths of course!) we are going to spend a week at a friend's gite near Perpignan. We are taking along a friend of The Young One, the lovely Amandine, and are getting excited.

The weather is at long last warm and sunny and we've got 2 weeks in which to have fun.

Then The Young One goes back to school and I get on the TGV to Paris, take the Metro from Montparnasse to Gare du Nord and take the Eurostar to the UK. Woo hoo 2 holidays in a month!

In the meantime - some photos for you. The 365 Project has really made me use the camera a lot recently.

and finally, one of the few items I purchased on Tuesday.


I love it!

Have a great holiday. We've got the sunshine but not the warmth yet, it's still jolly chilly. Let's hope it's warmed up a bit by the time you arrive in the UK.
