Ok...I own up....

Hello my blogging friends. I have to own up to having been AOL for the last week. I have had a well earned holiday in France. I did my WOYWW post automatically because I didn't want to miss out on the fun and of course it isn't a good idea to advertise the fact that you're on holidays. We had a week in a rustic French gite near La Chataigneraie in the south Vendee with our eldest daughter and her boyfriend and our son and his girlfriend. We had a fabulous time with good food, mostly great weather [only one day's rain] and the very best of company. We slept, ate, sunbathed, laughed and explored the countryside around us.....oh and learned to play Canasta :-)

I have to be honest and say I love to go away, enjoy being away from the door bell and telephone, certainly benefit from the rest but I really love coming home the most. Back now to sit in my favourite chair, have a warm bath and sleep in our own bed.
