Bonjour mes amis! Just back from a wonderful time in the Cotswalds in England. Will be posting much more about the trip, so please check back later. I am looking forward to catching up with your and your blogs, over the next few days.
You may be amused by the exhausted, but happy photograph taken at 1 a.m. August 22 at Wallett's Court Country House Hotel. The hotel, restaurant and spa is located in the countryside near the famous white cliffs of Dover. Little Britain star David Walliams stayed at the hotel in July, prior to swimming the English Channel. His swim to France raised over £1 million for charity.
Some of you may remember my dismay in March at becoming a blonde at the hands of an over-zealous French hairdresser. In the tiny village of Broadway, I found a hair salon called Spirit. The salon specialises in organic hair products - vegetable dyes, not chemicals - and a talented colourist named Louise managed to send the unwanted blonde packing. So even though the photo was taken at the end of a very long day, hours since my hair had been brushed or makeup applied, I prefer the look, rather than the blonde - less contrived, more "me."
