Thankyou so much to everyone who left messages on my blog sending my mum good wishes after her stroke. I have spent most of May and June in Cornwall visiting her in hospital. She is still hospitalised but the good news is that she is recovering, allbeit slowly. We now have to decide where it will be best for her to live once she is discharged from hospital.

I have tried to leave comments on several people's blogs but there seems to be a fault and it doesn't work. I come up as 'Anonymous' then when I click 'Comment' it just send me back to my 'sign in' over and over again. Any ideas????

My husband and I had a few days in France last week. It was all to do with his work and we have already stayed at this wonderful chateau two years ago. This was our room.

and the pool.

The food was superb but unfortunately I was terribly sick on the ferry crossing which lasted more than 24 hours later and I couldn't eat a thing on the first night!

On the way home from this venue we decided to pay a visit to the Chateau de Versailles but the queue for the tickets and the separate queue for entrance into the palace were soooooo long and it was raining so we decided to abandon the idea. Shame!

We stayed in this chateau on the way home. It belongs to an English couple who also deal in antiques and it was amazing inside.

I hope to be able to comment on your blogs again very soon.


  1. Hi Glad your Mum is on the mend. France looks lovely.
    I am also having the same trouble with commenting on some blogs, I have to use annonymous and type my blog name at the end of the comment which is a bit of a pain.
    Good to see you back

  2. So glad to hear that your Mum is on the mend. Your stay in France looked wonderful, the pool looked particularly stunning. I haven't had problems commenting but my followers keep disappearing then reappearing suddenly! I think Blogger seems to be having a few problems at the moment. Enjoy your week.

    as for comments there does seem to be a problem with blogger at the moment. Try unclicking the 'stay signed in' box when you log in and see if that helps.

  4. Wow! Could you let me know where you stayed in France? Both those Chateaux look beautiful! We're always over in France travelling so would love to know! We stay at Chateau Pomiro near Bordeaux. Just email me if you cant reply?

  5. I'm so sorry about your mom....what a place!

  6. I am pleased to read your Mum is making progress.
    The place you stayed in France looks amazing. Sorry you were ill on the way over and hope it did not spoil the rest of your stay.
    Lots of people have had problems with blogger, it has been a bit hit and miss for some time now.
