"Oh We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside.........."

.......and I bet you will all be singing that song now LOL!

Warning, holiday photos again, picture heavy and no sewing!     Early September the weather was lovely so we decided to go off again (such a hard life LOL).   First we went to Sam's favourite place, St Palais in Charente Maritime

How I wish my legs were really that long!

Then on to ile d'Oleron, a small island just off the coast, but it was so busy we only stayed a couple of nights, seems everyone else with a motorhome thought it would be a good idea to be there!  We watched these school children having a sailing lesson, what a lovely way to spend a  morning. The boat towed them to one end of the lake and then they had great fun sailing back (or going round in circles LOL).

How about this for a view, we had our lunch here one day right on the side of the Dordogne river.

Our last camp site was across the river from the town of Limeuil, from the camp site we could walk down to the river 

Sam enjoyed his paddle in the river!

On our way home we stopped at a little town called les Eyzies-de-Tayac.  There was a market on so stopped to have a look around.  

How about one of these for a Des-Res!!

It was a lovely little town and somewhere we will definitely be going back to, we didn't have enough time to have a good look around.  I did a bit of research when we got home and this town dates back to Prehistoric times with cave dwellings, can't wait to go back and have a good look around.

If you have got this far, well done, you deserve a medal!  If the weather stays nice in October we may just sneak another week away before the winter sets in again.    

Just one more picture of Sam enjoying his holidays .....

Happy Sunny Sunday!

Hello, long time no see!  Not had a lot to say really and you know what they say..... "if you ain't got nothing nice to say don't say anything at all" LOL.

I've been busy making a few items, some of which have already been sold to friends and family - warm glow.

This is some bunting I am in the middle of making for my Gt Niece, her friend has just had a baby girl, as you can see we are still at the design stage, trying to decide where to put the fabric flowers!

So, that's been me..... busy busy, and dreaming of our next camping holiday.

See you soon.

Summer has arrived!

At long last summer has arrived in France, we are now having the temperatures and the sunshine that we have come to expect.

Since returning from our hols there hasn't been much sewing, but I can show you a couple of things I did before we went and which have now been received.

First is a quilt I made for my first Great Great nephew (yes, in case you were wondering that does make me feel old!)

... and here is Oliver fast asleep on it - not sure why picture is blue,.......maybe it's because he is a boy ;-)

A friend's daughter asked me if I could make a personalised wall hanging for her and this is what I made

I bought and adapted the pattern from here

Last but not least I had a go at making some party bunting, I've just put this on my facebook page and my friend has just bought it !

So, that's it for me, I think I am still thinking about my holidays, or maybe I am thinking about my next one :-)

Oh... and a few more holiday pics..... 

This is Nancy, she belongs to my nephew and his girlfriend

enjoying a sunny afternoon...


and playing

More holiday pictures...

All good things have to come to an end (or so my Mother use to say!) and so we are now home, here are some pictures of the last weekend of our hols.  We stayed at  St Palais sur Mer and it was a lovely hot weekend..... wish I should say the same now, it's dull raining and flipping cold!

Not sure if you can see from the picture but there are fishing nets hanging over the water, we never saw anyone actually fishing with them, maybe they use them early in the mornings.

This pictures shows Sam being naughty, we had just let him off the lead and he started running around like a nutter, suddenly he saw this family and he was off, no amount of shouting was going to get him back.... luckily for us they loved him and made a fuss, but he got a good telling off when we got him back I can tell you!

He loved the sea...

Seems to be popular with the fishermen...

This was where we had our last crepe and coffee on our last night there

and this was the view we had (people were still swimming at 9.00pm)

Our last walk on the beach........

Oh look one of me..... just to prove I was there as well.....

Will definitely be going back to St Palais we all loved it there......

Hugs Linda xxxx

Wow are we ever having a fabulous time!  In case anyone thinks I have disappeared I thought I had better do a post and let you all know I am still here.

We are on holiday in our camper, we are now in our 6th week away (enter squealing here.... 6 weeks holiday OMG).

So if you don't want to see lots of pictures then stop reading now.....

This was the first place we stayed on our way to UK, Provins not far from Paris, it's a medieval walled town, which we could walk to from the site.

One of the camp sites we stayed on in the UK

and the lovely country pub we had Sunday lunch with my nephew and his girlfriend which all seems so long ago now.....missing you guys.

London and the Thames river, taken from camper as we went over Dartford Bridge - gosh it's high up!

 Folkestone England, oh look... Sam got in this photo LOL

Imagine waking up to this view every morning, it was lovely

Really lovely lake and 3500 Ha. forest, near Le Mans plenty of room for Sam to run around

Where we had our morning walks....

.....and where we had our morning hot chocolate!!

French children having sailing lessons on the lake

and because I know you will only complain if there aren't any.... here are some pics of Sam

This is taken from outside van through the window...he wasn't happy that we were outside and he was inside...just look at that face..... ROFL.

Last but definitely not least I want to say a very big THANK YOU to our wonderful best friends who took pity on us while we were in the UK.  The weather changed from being okay to being not minus 2C not okay, we were going to turn around and come straight back home, but they just wouldn't let us, they insisted we parked up the van in their secure lock up and went to stay in their house with them.  We had a wonderful week,  they even put David on their car insurance so we would have transport, without their help we would not still be on holiday now, we had a fabulous time and enjoyed being with them so just make sure Pam and Graham it isn't too long before we can return the favour!!!  

Is that tee shirt from Hong Kong Graham!?!?!?!?!?!?

Sam...waiting for Graham to come home..... 

Can you see a theme in our holiday?   Looks like we like being near water!!  Though there is water coming down from the sky at the moment and that is NOT the sort I like to be near, the forecast for tomorrow is sunshine so we are hoping to get to the coast for a few days before going home next week, I suppose we have to go home sometime if only to cut the grass LOL.

Speak soon.

Hugs Linda and Sam
