Well, he's OK

Heard from my lad in London - he was at changing of the guard the same day as Sarkozy - the French National anthem was played - in whose honour?...

My lad is doing fine - been to the London Eye today, and British Museum. The London Eye wasn't even there the last time I was in London...Neither was Tate Modern - that's tomorrow's treat.

Have been very busy doing stuff on my ebay site - I'm selling stuff to down size: we are selling this large house and going for something a bit smaller and easier to heat. We use around 24 m3 of wood at least each winter - that's a 20 foot container size - everything has to be cut up small enough to go into our wood stove for cooking and hot water, and in the evening we have a wood burner to heat the sitting room. I'ts a big chore and part of our daily routine.

I sell pretty French stuff - linen, fabric, small furniture but all vintage. Nothing new for me! (except books - sell those too)

My lad is off to London

I'm the world's worst technophobe but I've finally got around to sorting out Blogger - on my own, no help from other half.

Vintage stuff is my passion - I live in France so anything frou-frou is alright with me - I sell on-line - of course - but tonight I've got the night off as my baby is off to London with the school for a 5 day trip and I'm worried.

He might be 6 foot tall and 15 years old with downy stubble, but he is still my baby and I am just hoping that all will be ok and he won't get mugged, stabbed, beaten up, threatened, propositioned or persuaded to join some odd cult religion...

No, I'm sure he'll be fine back in the old country, but hey, all you Londoners out there, watch out for 35 French kids wandering aimlessly around but you'll know him when he speaks - in perfect English of course!
