Tag Tuesday Challenge and a quick au revoir

Yikes! We made a last minute decision this afternoon to go to our cottage in France tonight. The weather here in our part of the UK is so crappy at the moment, we can't work on the outside of the house like we had planned, so we might as well go to the cottage now rather than in a couple of weeks' time. This meant, however, that I have been rushing around like a loony, getting everything ready. You know, packing, last minute shopping, emails to be sent, letters to be written, people to be informed, etc etc.

I didn't want to go without completing the Tag Tuesday challenge though, so I made the tag with the "Valentines" theme this evening. I had to photograph it with a flash, and I really dislike that so much, the camera flash is so harsh. So the photos are pretty rubbish. Couldn't even decide what sort of background to use, so I am giving you 3 to look at, lol. And that is about it. I still have to get a little bit of info together for some geocaching in France, lolol. Purely because we have some trackables which need moving on. Not because we are a wee bit keen, lol.

As you know, we don't have internet access at the cottage, so I will be out of touch for a week and a bit ( back next Sunday ). I'll try and catch up with your blogs as soon as I get back to England.

Anyhoo, here is the Tag Tuesday Challenge tag, theme " Valentines " -




Au revoir, toodlepip, and have a lovely time, doing whatever you like doing best xxx

Mew has got to be joking....mew made that beautiful tag AND you are trying to get out of there to go to the cottage in France?!?! MeOw! If you accomplished this, you are incredible! Most normal folks would not have accomplished what you did! Oh wait....that's right what was I thinking....I already knew you were incredible >^..^<
