No, my darlings I have not forgotten you, you are all still here in France with me. The weather is warm and sunny, we are at ease.
This weekend has been the St Sever fete. The small town has decked herself out in cheerful bunting and fairly lifted her skirts and danced with music, singing and happy smiles.
Little side streets in dappled sunlight look curiously bare with no flags on show.
Flowers are everywhere. Geraniums and window boxes. Colour and light, sunshine and flowers.
Today I move to my friends house where I'll be house sitting for the next few weeks. I haved repacked my bags and am ready for adventure.
I'll miss Martin and Ann's fab hospitality but I'll only be alone for 2 days before Idgy comes out to join me.
Have been taking so many photos I promise you I will sit down this afternoon and get them all sized and filed and ready to show you every day.
Remember the sunlotion girls, it's gonna be a hot one.
