Going back in time!

Before I start to write this post, you must remember surely that I am probably one of the most fervent of Francophiles! I love France, I love the culture, the language, the history, the people, the countryside not to mention the food and the wine! Please bear this in mind when you read this post, […]

Too Hot to Blog? Nah!

It’s ever so nearly too hot to blog but here I slave over my keyboard! I tried desperately hard to upload some videos on to youtube last night and again today but my four minute video was going to take over 2800 minutes which by my calculations works out at well over 40 hours – so I’m […]

Keep smiling :)

We are still baking here in the UK, but I must say, I love it.  We get far too little warm weather so I refuse to complain about it. I do have a tip that may interest you. I keep a pack of Baby Wipes in the fridge and when the heat just gets too […]
