One week left!

Only one week left in England now. The removal van comes next Monday (26th March) and I'll be leaving England a day or so later for a new life in France.

Last week I went out to the house with my son, Giles, for the final signing and to make sure everything was OK. It was - the roof is still on and everything tidy. I cut back ivy and brambles over the well so I could bring up water. Don't know if it's drinkable yet, but at least it can be used for washing things or watering plants.

I had decided some time ago to open a brocante at the house - I have one room that would be perfect for it - but it'll take a while. However, I had thought about the advertising and decided to call it La Violette - even bought curling ribbon in shades of purple and pale green to finish off wrapping of the purchases! When I was clearing the brambles at the well one of the first things I found was a clump of perfect, scented, pale mauve violets. Must be fate!

Giles also investigated the outside toilet (it's the only one at present) and it DOES work. I cut back the ivy and brambles here too, so the door can almost shut now! Hope to get something inside by the time winter comes!

Ok, must get packing now....
