  Just recently my sweet 'Garden Fairy'
friend Catherine of
passed on this award to me!!
Merci mon ami!!!!

In  accepting this award, I agreed to share with you
10 things you may not already know about ME.....

♥1 I'm a day dreamer and that's probably
why I love this Debussy album...

♥2 I want to be a disciplined blogger,
and post more frequently as most of you do.
Any helpful tips gratefully received!
It’s all about organisation – I know!!!
Just tell me how!!!!

♥3 My family always come first -
which often effects (♥2)...

♥4 I long to be fluent in the French language.
My daughter's ‘French in-laws’ don't speak english, 
so our conversations are quite stilted...
each time we meet I hope they notice a
little improvement!!

♥5 I love and need music in my life– all sorts.
I adored the singing at Prince William
and Catherine's wedding....
When my family were out we played

“The Black Eyed Peas” over and over.
I have collections of Irish bands, to opera and
orchestral, plus of course
many french singers!

♥6 Of course I believe in fairies and angels -
where would we be without them....

♥7 I love roses - especially the big
old fashioned blowsey blooms like these

♥ 8 France is in my soul.....
I love the people,
the food, music and landscape

♥9 A long time before my daughter even thought of
travelling to France, I had a very vivid dream.
In that dream were two little girls
in pretty smocked dresses
and they spoke in french.......
I can't remember what their faces
looked like but obviously
they were my two little
granddaughters to be.....
♥10 I'm a romantic who loves
music, art and poetry, gardens, beautiful fabrics
especially chintz, rich damasks, linen, silk
and much, much more.....
