Home again

This past 12 days has been spent with the family in France.  We had a great time.  The weather for most part was amazing, so warm and sunny.  We achieved lots of outside work and even had a day at the beach with the boys.  We went to a brocante.  Made plans for the next renovation work, and watched ourselves on TV!  Chateau de la Ruche was featured in episodes 6-10 (I'm in 10) and you can catch up on All 4 .  They were featured in House Beautiful UK and the Daily Mail online, so lots to read about if you so desire

The boys requested a visit to Omaha Beach on their Wednesday day off - its about 2 hours away from the Chateau - are we nearly there yet was asked on numerous occasions

We visited a museum which would have been more interesting for me had I been able to read instead of chasing after Laurie who dashed from one exhibit to another - "look at this Granny"!!!!  Small children........

Now home again, our home feels so tiny in comparison, but I'm glad I don't have all those rooms to clean. Our garden is looking lovely, the daffodils are out and everything is starting to bud up or leaf out, which is great as I moved more plants around recently.

My knitting will be back on track soon.  I did work on my Outing shawl whilst away, but need to cast on my March socks.

Anyway best get on, off for a spa day with the girls today.  See you soon


  1. Welcome home. Displays look interesting. I can see why the boys were darting about to see everything. Another place to add to my list.
    I so envy the garden work. We are bitter cold with snow predicted for tomorrow.

  2. Well, by the looks of the pictures you've been quite busy helping daughter and running after those wonderful grandchildren. Such fun and they willbe memorable years to look back on. Love the photos of the beach.
