This is the Ducal Palace in Dijon the front facade.
Shopping in Dijon, the girls headed straight for their beloved SEPHORA.
A roof pattern I liked.
Ducal Palace from the side
From a little street...
Another grand building, by this time we needed to rush back as the parking meter would expire.
Running along, admiring the banners and that LEAFY HEAD????
Quick a photo of our hotel: the leafy grape-vines across the terrace
Then a very very Looooong drive, and at last we have amazing views so I stop!
This is the hairpin bend we had stopped at... We had amazing views on the way up earlier but had not stopped now on the way down on the far side of a mountain range I said we do it NOW.
And then we arrived !!! PGL camp , it looked quite sparse and awful and made us cry so no photos were taken...Ugh tents and such plastic frame beds, such a lot of gravel and no flowers.
This is the guide to the river descent that we will do in the week:
Now we DID it and it was FABULOUS but we could not and did not take cameras on board as a capsize was a distict possibility. Outrageously expensive and unflattering photos were taken and here are a few sample ideas of what it was like:
This was kayak- day were we were solo.
Mostly we were in 2 person canoes like this!
With all sorts of small and large rapids! WHITE WATER!!!
And YES this did happen to ALL of us at some time or other....
THIS is what we canoed under and also with a kayak, it's at the beginning and we did it twice.
And Miss Y on activity days DID the HIGH ROPES! Not me, I did it once, never again!
I'm photographer and video maker, keeper of memories!
WOW she went so high, such courage! Just walking along?
And also going up for the Trapeze jump...
And swinging down after jumping the trapeze...
THEN the DINNER!
And late evening, sneaking out of camp to go to the village for ICE CREAM!!!
Hello and welcome to my homely world in a small Oxfordshire town in 2013.I am a full- time working mum.

This is to be my diary of events for a creative crafting sort of person with all the happenings that occur in this day and age in English family life.I am very much learning as I go along, my eldest is my first at all the things that occur in a young person's life as it's all very different from when I was a little girl and I did not grow up in England.
Totally obsessed with textiles and the making of things- anything!
My passion is to make things with yarn or fabric or thread : any textile crafts or beads too.
