Spanishgirl has been and gone. She was easy to have but I felt the absence of Spanish in the family: perhaps our lack was her gain as she spoke much more English than our earlier French visitors. Youngest was put under strain: Spanishgirl lives in Madrid and Youngest found it difficult to explain our country slow lane life! But our trip to London went down well with everybody - yes, even the art heathens among us loved the trip to see the Hockney exhibition! - and a hanging out and paddling in the river evening with a little gang of girls was deemed the 'most fun'. They had to make more flapjack and she took home the recipe.
I have made a cushion for the Church Fete raffle (I was instructed to make red white and blue but in a Kath Kidson style).
And I have made progress with the new chair (but not with the old ones).
It's the end of term and we are off to Dorset tomorrow for an even quieter bit of country life.
