I have returned....

I have returned.....got the ferry back from Caen last night, after 6+ weeks of camping in France and Holland. We had a great time and there's lots to tell but not today as we're knackered, we've got the trailer tent and all the kit to unpack and sort out this weekend, plus Oliver arrives tomorrow and school starts on Monday, urgh!! But I just wanted to say we'd all got home safely.

Oh, and it was a great holiday from the spinning point of view. Best part was that I bought a spinning wheel in a Breton flea market. Ever tried to pack a spinning wheel into a trailer tent/car already overflowing with camping kit? The key is, of course, determination....and not buying too big a spinning wheel!

Nice to be back though. Decent cup of tea for a start. And I'm looking forwards to catching up with things. Six weeks with practically no internet access....I've missed a lot!

welcome home!

we're just back from London, where we went when we realised that the weekend we'd booked at a campsite at castle douglas was due to be a soggy one.

i'm looking forward to seeing Oliver in his new home - will there be photos?

hope to see you soon.
