Off to France

We arrived at the Flinns tonight without the blinds... each thinking the other had put them in the car. This just about sums up our day. They were going to drive them to France for us tomorrow as I'll be flying and not able to take them myself.

Back home and all packed and raring to go.

Helped raise £1700 for Children in Kenya on Saturday(CHinK). It was a scorching day and we had a great time.

Unkind thought...I wasn't all that sad to hear Raoul Moat had taken his own life. I saw humour in a Moat being cornered by a river.

Kind thought...sorry, out of time!

See you all in a couple of weeks.


  1. I chuckled when I read your story about leaving the blinds behind. It reminded me of the time when Mary and Joseph were saying, "Wait, I though He was with you?"

    Congrats on raising money for the children of Kenya. My sister founded a charity that helps out the orphans of neighboring Tanzania. Too many AIDS orphans in those countries and not enough time to help them all. We do what we can...

    Reading your blog always keeps me running to Mr. Google. Now I have to go find out who Raoul Moat is...

    Happy times in France!

  2. That's terrific about the amount of money raised for the children of Kenya. Well done.

    Enjoy France! I know I would :)

  3. I'm always intrigued by other's rants and raves. Your rave is especially nice. A worthy cause, indeed. Sorry about the blinds. Do we get to see a pic?

  4. Have a fantastic time, Ken. You'll be missed.


  5. Thanks for all you comments and good wishes. I almost missed them because of the holiday.
    I can't say it was a holiday exactly but I was very pleased with the progress made.

    I'll include a link to CHiNK (rhymes!)
