This is not a blog post as such. I simply wish to let you know that I am sending you all a warm hug from France. I am mastering the art (again) of treading carefully whilst I replenish my iron levels (again). Despite this temporary state of fatigue I am feeling hopeful and excited about current projects and the school year ahead.
Sometime in early summer my blog, Millefeuilles, turned two. I have experienced so much sweet generosity from so many of you and I would very much like to offer you all a gift; one of my limited edition hares - not Mademoiselle Forget-Me-Not featured below - but a special creature which captures the beauty of summer dreams and the glorious transition into early autumn. I will be posting pictures of her here during the course of this week and offering you a chance to win her.
In the meantime I am concentrating on my three dear children and helping them, I hope, to prepare for their return to school tomorrow.
Héloïse is embarking on her final year of school...
Tristan who may be living great changes thanks to his music...
and finally, Angélique who is starting pre-school (maternelle) tomorrow: a big change for this three-year-old daughter of mine (and her mother too). I'm wishing for a smooth transition for for all three of them.
So, I will see you in a few days and I hope you all have a wonderful start to this first week of september.
A très bientôt,
ps Dear Claire, I am busy dreaming of Rapunzel and exquisite yarns.
