Well I was AWOL again last week - this time off at a conference for work in Cannes.
It may sound a bit glamorous but we flew in saw the airport, a taxi, a hotel for the duration and despite a half hour walk along the sea front one evening & again before breakfast - in the rain - we didn't really see much of France !
Really we could have been at a rainy UK resort like Brighton or Bournemouth !!
Anyway here is a picture to prove I WAS there !
On Saturday we were out again - off to Cardiff for a tapas lunch at Las Iguanas and then the matinee of Wicked. I didn't really know what the story was or what to expect - but it was great fun - and even with an overdose of Emerald Green we enjoyed ourselves !
So I started on our South African holiday - where could I possibly start other than those totally adorable, cute Penguins !
And my lovely crafty visit with Bella - the tag is a gift she gave me - and the fuchsia pink theme is in her honour - being the cool pink lady she is !!
Just a couple of snaps from the garden this week - my project this summer is my new Vegtrug.
I sowed seeds 10 days ago and I love seeing the miracle of a new plant springing from that speck of seed !
And I also love seeing Spring struggling to make itself known in the quagmire that is my rain soaked garden beds ! Here are some tulips I planted last year - valiantly blooming despite a bed where they would be better off with flippers than roots !!
