I'm back. . .

A little drawing I did in my daughters' student kitchen while she made fairy cupcakes.
"Watch ya" back to "Bonjour".  I'm just back from a great few days  in Leeds catching up with family. It's my third trip to Leeds, fantastic city and the people are so friendly. It has everything going for it except the rubbish weather.  Can't complain really, it didn't rain much... 

When I got back home to my very quiet corner of France, two packages were waiting for me..

This beautiful painting and poem from my lovely friend Laura
and a fun book
that I was lucky enough to win from Ben Clanton

And my gorgeous Mr Hollywood bought me a bunch of Star Gazer lilies... I should go away more often. :D

That's all the fun and nonsense for this week x
