Off to France

Sawn tree. M Charlton circa 2004
Tomorrow, I'm off to France for ten days, so you won't hear from me for a while.
I've been neglecting the blog for the last week or so. Pressure of work I'm afraid, though fellow blogger Sara, has been a star (she helps me through her company, Watershed PR) She also remembered my birthday - so thank you for the book Sara.
I'll not tell you about the present Jane bought me because it will spoil a good blog post, and as it doesn't arrive till I return, I can't photograph it yet - but boy, was I pleased.
In the meantime, here's some old paintings I rediscovered the other week.

  3. Hi, am over from French Fancy. Hope you have had a good time in France. I think you went to a place in the Alps - Morzine? My sister has a coffee shop/deli there: Berrits and Browns. Small world!

  4. Belated Happy Birthday. Have a wonderful holiday in France. Hope the weather is kinder to you there than it is in wild, wet, windy west Wales! Yes, we are back to the normal weather now.
