Off to France again, woohoo!

We were meant to go last month, but life interferred, as it has a habit of doing. But we need to go to the cottage to, errmm, cut the grass, trim the shrubs and trees, plant stuff etc. Great excuse, isn't it? So we are off tonight. I am so looking forward to sitting out in the garden and watching the very slow paced life in the valley below us. Last year April was beautiful, sunny and warm, as you can see in the blog header photograph, and I am hoping that it will be the same again this month. We will be back in the UK around the 12th.

I am going to miss this week's inchie challenge and tag tuesday challenge as well, but I promise I will try and catch up as soon as I get back. And then there is the Bloggerette Sorority RUSH to look forward to as well! And I just know that there will be hundreds and hundreds of wonderful posts waiting for me to read when I get back.

Not sure whether there will be any vide greniers yet, but I am certainly going to have a good look around. Fingers crossed.

I'll leave you with a couple more April photographs from last year.

Toodlepip, xxx

Here are your "traveling orders", Liz: Raise a glass of good French wine as a toast to all of us who are stuck somewhere else wishing we could be with you! :-)
