I missed the allium but the cosmos and sweet peas have been fantastic and just wait for the sunflowers..
We have been home for 4 weeks now from our 6+ week tour of Scandinavia. Just about sorted everything out in rather a whirlwind of activity.
Motorhome cleaned and polished. Very few adjustments have been needed after our trip. Just fitted a passenger side Blind spot mirror and had the rear view camera wiring fixed.
The garden has had an essential tidy (it looked astonishingly good to say it had been pretty well abandoned in high season). Friends and relatives have been phoned, been visited or have visited. Bob has had his 67th birthday with all his children there but neither of mine as both out of the country. I have made a few pieces of glass getting ready for Christmas rush. Fitted in a month’s worth of WI and a craft fair with my JoysofGlass stained glass in Congleton as well as one Tandy weekend in Rochdale and Bob’s first Stoke City football season game.
4 weeks later we are off again. France this time as we are very relaxed there and haven’t really visited there for last two years. I am off to Melbourne, Australia at the end of September. My daughter Jenny is due to have a baby

My stall at Congleton craft fair (in the rain)
there, my grandson, at the beginning of October so I will be there to look after my lovely granddaughter Izzy. Only time to fit in a short visit to France this time but we would miss our usual very pleasant September break if we didn’t have one so a good 2 weeks in Northern France will be fantastic.
As soon as we decided we could fit in the trip Bob managed to fit in a quick trip planning session, booked the Euro Tunnel to get there and a ferry to get back, checked all insurances, paid bills and arranged a route across to the Southern Brittany coast and back. Everything is ready. Motorhome is loaded. Off early tomorrow.
Je nous souhaite bon voyage et bonnes vacances.
