Well, time to bring this blog up to date. My holiday to France is over. We stayed in Pontaillac near Royan and did tours each day to see a bit of the area, so some wine tasting, cognac tasting,oyster tasting and shopping, sightseeing, excellent dinners in the hotel and we even managed to fit in some paddling!! Then home to babysit baby grandson for a week - hence no crafting as his cot was in my craft room! I'd forgotten how time consuming (and enjoyable) 7 month old babies are. The children have now gone home, my house is slowly getting back to normal, but very quiet, and next week some crafting I hope. I'm beginning to get withdrawal symptoms - need to do some challenges.
