Back in the UK!

Yep, back in the UK and missing France already. A few super busy weeks and then we will back in France again, to do all the autumny stuff which will need to be done.

The drive back is always quite tiring, but it was so good to see our youngest son, who still lives with us, and the doggies were so excited to see him again as well. That kinda energised us again, at least for a couple of hours, lol. Another thing which put a big happy smile on my face was a little package which was waiting for me. I was sure it had to be the prayer flag from Jan, and I so wanted to open it straight away. But it was dark by that time, and I don't like taking photos in artificial light, so I made myself wait until this morning. And here are the photos -

Prettily wrapped and with her original artwork card -



And here is the beautiful prayer flag she made, it is so perfect for me with the subtle colours and gorgeous embellishments, all the things I adore -




She also enclosed this fabulous tag -

and all these sweet things for me to create with -

Without Jan I wouldn't have found out about prayer flags now and I am so glad that I did. I love the idea behind them. Big thank you hug to you, Jan, for this fabulous swap. There is just a gentle wind here on the Channel coast today, so I will hang the prayer flag in the garden for a little while and let the wind carry the message away.

If you missed the post where I showed the prayer flag I sent to Jan, you can find it HERE.

Right, no more time to chat, gotta get busy busy busy! Toodlepip xxx
