Short of time!

I am having a difficult time keeping up with Life in the Charente at present! Having just returned from 3 weeks holiday in Spain and Portugal, I have not got the time for lots of research which most of my posts need. Nigel is great at helping me, but there is so much to do in the garden, we are both very busy.  I am, though, doing my best to keep up the daily photodiary and adding a few holiday photos to each day, so if you are interested, please take a look at it HERE.  Winter should be a good time for me to catch up once again, but if I have time I will pop in a few posts before that.  As Arnie S once said,I will be back :-)
A taste of our holiday photos - the way to travel in Seville, Spain.


A new blog for France - friends just making the move take a look Here.

  6. I took a look at the photographs...stunning! You must have had a wonderful holiday...and, as usual, on return there is the garden, the preserving...and just a little time to breathe...

  7. Whenever you get the time it is always worth reading and so beautifully illustrated with pics. Life is for living, and writing about after.
    Looking forward to the next chapter.

  8. I know the feeling. When you get home there is so much to do, especially in summer there, I imagine. Good luck with your chores and looking forward to seeing your holiday shots. I'll check out your other site.

  9. Me too! I could spend all day and all night out in the garden at the moment. Never mind the housework.

  14. That looks like a wonderful way to travel! I hope your garden didn't grow too amok while you were on holiday. My son and his bride just returned from 5 weeks in Europe, and they said the weather was perfect. I'm looking forward to your vacation recap.

  15. I've never ridden in a horse drawn carriage so must put that on my list. Is there ever enough time? Enjoy the garden so you can reap the rewards.

  19. Your super photo reminds me of happy times. My wife and I love to travel by horse and carriage when we are on holiday. It's just a superbly relaxed way of getting around with time to take in all the sights. Have a wonderful weekend Diane, and don't work too hard!
