Parting is such sweet sorrow.....

This afternoon, Henny and Willem came to collect my toy shop, all the way from Amsterdam!

Not only that, after they'd carefully packed the shop and all the extras in their van, they turned round and headed straight back again, stopping only for a cup of tea and a biscuit to fortify them.  That's a round trip of over 600 miles including a 90 minute ferry trip both ways..... intrepid or what?

And here's me thinking it's a long way to the Post Office.

There's now a big empty space in the workroom, which won't remain empty for long as I need to crack on with La Mignonette, which has been woefully neglected of late.  

So much to do, so little time.....

jeeesh! Not only have I flown a 7hr flight across the atlantic to get to the UK but I was in Penzance at 1:30 pm and got "home" to Angmering W Sussex by 7:45pm that same day. You Brits are such wimps LOL

...and no Sandra I haven't had any cream teas but I have had some darn good local ales.

Welcome to the UK Karin......

Yes, you're right of course. But we live on a very small island so even relatively short distances feel much bigger. It's all a matter of perspective.
As we will will discover when we embark on our caravan odyssey later this month.... we'll be heading into Badger Beer country.

Hope you have a good trip!
