Some of you asked for news of how our Festival of Britian scarves sold - I'm happy to tell you that the first one I mentioned sold for 16 pounds, and the second one is currently at 15 pounds 99 (I can't get a pounds symbol on my French keyboard here!). Also currently for sale is our last Festival item - personally I love this little leather box, and quite want to take it home with me... but I'd rather see it sell! My sister and I have decided that these items, collected by my mum over the years, will be sold to go into a fund to help our families visit each other. These first sales won't make much of a dent in our travel expenses, but it's a lovely start and I think that my mum would have found it a wonderful result for her little speculative buys over the years.
In other news, we're having a lovely time with our visiting friends - visits to the Natural History Museum in Toulouse and lots of garden salads and a little bit of ice cream seem to be the order of the day...
