Strawberry Heaven

Our Tour de France is almost over. The stand was packed up for the last time last night in the most horrendous conditions you could imagine. The area that surrounds the hall is cobbled - Parisian style. Looks absolutely amazing BUT it was -6 and had been snowing, the cobbles were totally frozen over and it was sheet ice. Breakdown is a manic time anyway, and the ice made it almost impossible. Tony and I just slowed down and took our time, waiting until the mayhem had eased.

We arrived in Brittany in the early hours all safe and sound, although rather tired!

Less of my waffle, you want to know who is going to be going Dotty from this weeks Friday FREEBIE.....

Well done Lydia you have loads of dots coming your way.  All you have to do to claim the prize is to email your address to  Sorry Lydia, the strawberries are not part of the prize, Tony went shopping this morning and came home with this big box, they look amazing and I can not wait to enjoy them later!!!!

Huge thanks to everyone that left such wonderful comments, it was great reading them and such fun. I will be back in the office for this weeks Friday FREEBIE and I know we have had several NEW ribbons turn up, so maybe I will make the FREEBIE extra special!!!
