Hello from France

We have moved down to our next destination , le lac d,orient , this has free wifi , so I,m taking advantage 

The sun has finally decided to show itself , I think the same can be said for home

We travelled over on the tunnel , mixed feelings , yes it's quick only 30 mins but I found it rather claustrophobic , I,ll see how I feel on our return journey

We have been to visit Le Blockhaus d,Eperlecques , close to where we are staying ,what an experience, it's where the Germans planned to launch the v2 rockets but the English succeeded in bombing it before they could begin , 

These are the photos I took , 

The pictures don,t do the place and size of the memorial justice , it was very eerie walking around inside ,knowing what it had been built to do, 

Hopefully another post from France soon

Early may post

I may not get a chance to do another post for end of may, did I tell you we are off to France on Thursday for two weeks , who knows how the wifi will be there or will I be too busy drinking wine ? 

I did a craft fair on Saturday , a first for me , so all my time the last three weeks or so, has been taken up with crochet, apologies for not commenting on posts or not being available on FB , thanks to everyone for their good luck wishes , I really appreciated everyone's encouragement,

There were about 15 tables all with various crafts on display , fortunately no other crochet, plenty of knitting though and a new craft  I took an interest in , needle felting , anyone does this ?

Not much footfall ,but as it was the first maybe not many people knew about it, thanks to family and friends I did take a bit of money , so it wasn't,t a total failure, I didn't.t sell any charms or flower brooches or even flower hair bobbles so that was a bit disappointing , 
I am glad it's over with now and I can get back into the land of the living , they are hoping to do another one in October and I,ll be more prepared this time , 
Apologies for the display photos , looking at them , I know I could have displayed them better

I,ve also taken some photos or our ( untidy ) garden , I just know when we get home from France all the flowers will have been out and might even have faded , so I,ll do an after photo and show what difference nearly three weeks make 

With any luck I,ll be able to do a post from France so see you from across the pond , or see you in three weeks time

Oops I see I,ve put the same photo in twice , and don,t know how to delete it ,sorry
At least I,ve post to the right blog this time fingers crossed
