Life in France

If there were more hours in the day…..

I have come in from the wonderful February sunshine to have my afternoon espresso, a read of your blogs and a quick catch up in general. And then I got thinking……if there were more hours in the day what would you do with those additional hours?

I never seem to get everything done anyway and that’s with the studio closed at the moment!

So I challenge you to consider what you would do with 2 extra hours?!

I would

1. Sort out the wardrobe as Manon Lily has out grown so many clothes they need sorting and passing on.

2. Study my tarot cards and understand the power of reversed cards! 

3.Then I would have a long hot bath with my reading book!

N.A.King Fever

What a week this has been. I spent most of Christmas with a box of tissues attached to my nose and now as I type with one finger I am perfecting the art of N.A.King. For those less well informed it means “nursing at keyboard”!

Manon Lily decided she wanted a little bit of what I’ve had and as a consequence awoke with a fever yesterday. So I have spent the last 24 hours with my little darling attached to me wanting desperate comfort and unable to understand what has happened to her. Today things seem a little better but those important cuddles are still there.

As I write we have no plans for tomorrow New Year’s Eve….should we have?Do we care? The main thing is to get better and be together.

We came up with the wonderful idea of moving the “office” from out of the cold studio into the warmth of the house…hence my ability to N.A.K. Our new work space looks brilliant and really in hindsight we should have done it ages ago. Will this mean more time at the keyboard and banter?

Since our computer is now part of the furniture I thought it was time I provided a back drop of wonderful photos from out travels around the world as the screen saver. I must admit the photos look great! Here are a few samples…..

Can you name the locations? Answers on a postcard…..or comments below…..
