My new normal – 3rd November 2018

Hello all, it is sunny but cold in our part of France and I’ve just switched the heating on. We’ve had a nice but busy week. Pat is getting more business and I’ve picked up a couple of new clients so I’m also busy. I’ve come to the realisation that, being that busy is actually my new normal. I came to that conclusion while in art class on Friday afternoon – when I said that I was busy, I realised that is the way it is most likely going to be now. Can’t really complain as it does mean I’m earning more money. Which would be good as Pat and I want to do a bit more travelling next year, short trips.

This week we haven’t done that much, but we did get out to lunch on Wednesday, which was really nice, got to catch up with quite a number of people that we haven’t seen for a number of months. We also went to a restaurant that we are having a Christmas lunch at (for Pat’s camera club). This is also a restaurant that is open for Christmas lunch on Christmas day. This is an unusual thing in our part of France, and we have been looking for a place to have Christmas lunch, but I think it may be a little bit far from our place to actually travel to on Christmas day. The search continues. We had been thinking about doing something a bit different this year for Christmas but we just haven’t got ourselves organised enough.

I’m coming to the end of a painting this week and realised I hadn’t taken a photo of my last painting – so here it is. This was from a photo I took on a beach in Cornwall back in 2010 – such a long time ago.


So for now, à bientôt, from our wonderful part of France – Delia

  1. Great to hear how well things are going – so pleased for you hun! The painting is brilliant by the way!
    I was thinking of you last weekend as I went to Somerset House and looked up at our little round windiw that was on the floor of our office! So odd ???????? Lots of love xx

    1. Thanks so much, I really like this painting too 🙂 That office was sooooo horrible (except for the company of course).
      Take care
      Delia
