Excuse any mistakes in this post but I've been up since 4.30am and it's not even 8 o'clock yet and feels like bedtime!
We have had a lovely weekend with Coco and Elodie - our young friends from France. They come over as part of the Hungerford Twinning exchange - their mum came with them two years ago but this time they came on their own. I'm hoping that we will get to visit them in France next year. We did so much!
They arrived on Friday and Elodie helped me make some meringues while Coco went off on the tractor with George (their parents are farmers too so we have a lot in common).
Up again early on Sunday for a day in Oxford. We went on the French coach. Whenever I go on coach trips with the quilt group I notice that as soon as everyone sits down you hear the click, click, click of seat belts. Well - this doesn't happen with the French. The children all sat in the aisle playing cards and everyone was up and down the whole time! We had a lovely day looking around the colleges
rowing on the river (absolutely hilarious - we rowed up the river while Penny punted from side to side!)
and visiting the Natural History Museum
Then yesterday - Hooray! - all was safely gathered in so with harvest over (apart from the drying) George and Jonathan came with us to the White Horse Show at Uffington. By lunchtime it was pelting down but we had a lovely time anyway
In between the children played constantly with Rheuben and the other animals
To use up a bit of time this morning I went through my emails and was thrilled to get one from Denise with a picture of her beautiful quilt she made with our beginners group:
