nearly time to come home...


Total lack of blogging from me lately! I've, understandably been up to my eyes with munchkin and trying to keep ontop of my work. There just isn't the time anymore which is so sad as I've 'e' met some great folks over the years via blogging :0) We're here on holiday, in South West France...for the fifth time. We've been searching for a property to renovate but alas they are either not really suitable for conversion or total ruins! We have a very modest budget, which as Nicky pointed out, just isn't enough because there are many, many English people looking to do the same thing but with a heck of a lot more cash. Perhaps my ship will come in one day and we'll be able to afford the dream. We've been back to see Madame Grotte in her cave, and I topped up my supply of vintage french lace trims, hankerchiefs and buttons. I'm hoping I get the time to start making some stuff again. It's not for the lack of ideas, it's literally just time. So, here we are having lunch in Brantome by the river Dronne today. We had saucisse grille avec lentilles de campagne, very yummy. Until next time...a bien tot! Erica xxx
