Hello lovely people,
I am writing this on Thursday evening as tomorrow morning (Friday morning) we shall be setting out on our road trip to the UK. I am apologising in advance that I won't be able to comment much for the next 5 weeks, but I will try to blog something (wifi permitting) along the way.
My postcard today comes from Taiwán:
It shows the beautiful Yangmingshan National Park. It was sent by someone calling herself Terre et Moi (French for 'the earth and me'). She writes: "Greetings from Taiwán. I am also a Geology-major and my husband is a geologist. Taiwán is a Young mountain belt. We do have some small volcanoes in Northern Taiwán in this National Park."
The stamps are also stunning:
This week has been a wonderful, fun filled week (see my Tuesday blog which is full of photos).
Thursday, in addition to the packing we had to do, we ordered our new kitchen at the carpenters. I'm having oak doors in a light stain.
We are building a Little 'garden flat', as in, ground floor appartment, so that if/when we are old and grey and can't manage the stairs anymore, we can live there. We have done the bathroom and the bedroom and our visitors have used it last month. We have discovered it is nice and cool, so perhaps we will make the flat our summer residence.....
This is the carpenter's workshop, just outside the village:
The man on the right is Antonio the carpenter.
Here is a display of doors. We chose the one on the left for our new flat.
He showed us upstairs too. Sorry this photo is slightly out of focus...
Now for a couple of funnies:
Well, that is it from me. We'll be off son travelling through Spain and through France to St Malo, where we catch the ferry to Portsmouth. From there we travel up to Cheshire. We're allowing ourselves 3 days to get to the ferry. (We don't like driving at night) Ferry on the 22nd, and travelling up the country on the 23rd. Phew! That is going to be a long journey.
Have a lovely weekend,
