Going, going, gone
Well not quite gone yet, but about to. We have been putting off going to France because we wanted to be here with Chris in case he needed our advice/help/support with his flat buying. This morning we decided that we really needed to go for a week or so, to make sure the cottage is alright, to see our friends and well, just because. Because we love the place. Crossing was booked, a few supplies were bought ( choccie drops for our friend's doggie ), clothes were laundered. Why oh why do I do everything last minute, lol? To say it has been somewhat hectic today is a bit of an understatement.
But, I am almost ready now, suitcase is packed and all the bits and pieces which I want to take to the cottage are packed in a big box. I have been adding to the box for weeks now, lol, and can't remember what is in the bottom! It will be fun unpacking it, yay. Sometimes having a bad memory is really quite a bonus.
So, I really just wanted to say toodlepip, byeeee and cheerio to you all. We should be back next Wednesday or thereabouts. Don't expect a post the first day back, I just know I will have to spend a whole day catching up on all the blogs I follow and so love to read.
I will be taking my crochet stuff with me, you remember the gorgeous Manos del Uruguay yarn I am using for a wrap or lap blanket? I hope to get some good crocheting done by the fire. Again. Like the last time we spent a week at the cottage. And you all laughed at me. Well some of you did, and you know who you are, humph! Really, it wasn't that bad, was it? Just a reminder of the pic which caused such hilarity in some of you ( I am not mentioning JJ or Sarah, nope, not me ) -
See you all again soon! xx
