I am a woman "in the flower of my age". My great hobby is making silver jewellery out of silver clay and sterling silver. Sometimes I sell some too, because I cannot use it all myself.
Other interests are SEVEN gorgeous grandchildren - nine with my husband's two, gardening, books, kayaking, photo...
I write this blog in English to keep up the language after my retirement. I was a teacher in English and French for 18 years (so I ought to have a blog in French too...) and assistant head at a school for 15 years.
My second blog shows my handmade silver jewellery.
Mmmm... this ripe fig tasted marvellous! I have eaten about ten figs so far from my two big trees. I have three small ones too - they will replace the old trees, when they gr
ow too big. Which is soon... The problem is to house them indoors during the winter.
My knee operation has required a lot of effort from my poor system... Resting in the shade of one of my fig trees is one way of coping.
This tree is about 6 or 7 years old. Lying down I have a lovely view - the sky, the branches, the leaves and the figs.
