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.
I keep on in the rural tradition... No glitter no red shining balls. Gingerbread hearts with names are a must - but what a job! I do everything myself just as my mother did. Every year I say to myself: This is madness - next year I won't have a Christmas tree at all.
But when the tree is decorated and stands there on Christmas Eve I really think it's worth it!
