France to London


From a French country brocante (I only wish I could remember where in the Champagne region it was. A little less bubbly next time perhaps) to a London Victorian. The magical number 31, a little weather worn but obviously where it was meant to be. Appropriately the new owner even has a beautiful French name, Fleur. I love a happy ending, don't you?

August


Gone in a blur, August was a month of contrasts, not just on the weather front. It was the first time in memory we had to turn the heating on, we experienced torrential rains thanks to the tail end of Hurricane Bertha and now I sit here under a cooling fan facing another heat wave. My dental work seemed never ending, Sookie had her annual shots, we waved Megan off to Marbella for party time, whilst John and I drove up to London for a weekend of Jazz. There was precious time with family and friends, good food and memories made. Goodbye August, it's been great!

Driftwood, Breezy, Lazy Days and Giveaways....


Another stunning day with a brisk breeze to take the heat off the flesh. After two loooong weeks of dental treatment, finally life seems to have returned to the left side of my face. Just call me Lidocaine face! It's really taken the wind out of my sails and it's not over yet. I'm having an implant that won't be completed until mid December. I'll tell you how it goes. Anyone had one, any pointers you can give me?

You guys came up with some wonderful ideas for the sea glass. So good it made me go back to hunt for some more and I came away with a good stash today with a couple of pieces of Victorian pottery in the mix, more shells, more aqua glass, some great finds! There were six of you who really liked the idea of having some and I think I have enough to satisfy you all:

If you just drop me an email (yonks@hotmail.co.uk) with your address, your beach debris will be winging it's way to you in no time at all. X-raying that will keep border officials busy trying to work out what it is :-)
