Bore da and Au revoir

I thought I would do a quick post before I go 'en vacances' next week. I am really looking forward to it, but there is just a small fly in the ointment - we're flying!

I hate aeroplanes and I haven't been on one since 2008. I've had two children since then and they're coming too. Two of their aunties are on the same flight, which in theory sounds like a good idea. However, I hate flying, my husband hates flying with me, and one of his sisters has to take valium before getting on a plane. I pity the people sitting near us. I keep saying to myself 'it's only a short flight'........  However I was looking for a nice photo of Nice to put up here but have come across this image and now I feel slightly sick.

Yes, that's the airport. In the sea.

Anyway, moving on swiftly on. As well as working on my London scenes while I am away, I have a wedding invitation design to be getting on with. In Welsh! Luckily there's not much text and I have been provided with the correct spellings. Here is a sneak preview:

Medi means September in case you didn't know already! I will show you the rest once it is finished and the invites have been sent out so as not to ruin any surprises.....
Right, I am off to find my French dictionary. I actually did a degree in French so I shouldn't need it just for a short holiday, but to my shame, I have barely spoken two words of it since I went to Paris for the weekend in about 2005. Wish me luck:-)
See you in a few days!


  1. Don't give children your iPad and let them watch Peppa Pig without earphones throughout the flight. It will be very annoying for the poor man in the next seat - believe me!

    1. More annoying than crying?! We're going old-fashioned and bringing colouring pencils and books:-)
