Busy, busy, busy.

I am not sure where to begin. I am hurtling through space and not sure when I can land! A while back some friends gave us their 15 year old kitchen and we have been in a rush to put it in and get the kitchen ready for our next Paint Provence Trip on April 29th-May 6th, we still have places available if you fancy a week of pure painting, wonderful locations, great conversation and delicious food!! The poppies are coming out everywhere too. But first here are a few photos of our lovely kitchen.

I am so over the moon with it, we haven’t lost any rustic charm, but with the amazing table David made and a fresh coat of paint, I think we have made our farmhouse kitchen more charming and certainly more practicle!

No sooner had we finished the kitchen we had to turn our hands to putting up my friend Alison’s yurt. Well I say we, I was teaching an art class whilst the others were busy. Although Gilly and I did make a big lunch for the workers.

It started with a base tra la!

The yurt has a beautiful view of the vineyards and of course this photo was NOT posed for!

And continued with a door.

All done now it’s time to admire the work!

So from that to this.

A very busy and happy painting day with dear friends. Glorious sunshine and then we ate in the shade of the lilac tree.

As soon as Saturday was over I was belting down the motorway in my car to cook Easter Sunday Lunch and Easter Monday dinner for clients of mine in the Alpes Maritimes. Ooh la la!  Then back to the grind stone I have been finishing my 2016 accounts ready to take to the accountant tomorrow morning.

So of course full of fascinating information as ever, I am off to cook the dinner. I shall post this weekend and update all my websites with the dates of the painting trips and hopefully I shall paint some of the glorious iris’s that are still blooming. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter.
