We're heading off for a month of warmth (hopefully), yummy food, relaxation and stunning sights.
I picture picnics in parks or by rivers. Fresh baguettes with a different cheese every day. Red wine. Many patisserie visits. Moving around the country slowly soaking up the warmth and atmosphere.
For Black Eyed Susie, I hope to manage a bit of fabric shopping along the way and to come back rejuvenated (at least after the jetlag!) and inspired, bursting to produce new designs.
I need to brush up on some French and not allow myself any cakes until we leave (to make up for all the ones I know I'll eat when we get there). We spent four weeks cycling in France about 4 years ago and, even then, I think I managed to put on weight.
I'll be shutting up shop next Monday (1st september). Any orders received before then will go out in the usual 3 business days.
If anyone has any tips for long haul flight with a toddler survival please, please, please tell me them!
Edited to add - You can tell I've finished my work backlog by the blog fiddling I've been doing. Is it better or worse? What do you think?
