So, now I've finished my exams, and school forever (though I'll be going back for fun end of term things and graduation), and because I've been stuck in England studying for ages, by the time you'll be reading this I'll be almost home. Not home being the house where I grew up, but home in rural, Northern France - one of my very favourite places in the world and that I have not seen since December.
As regular readers will know, our house there is almost finished, and I've been holidaying there since late 2008. I've really started to get to know the area now, so rather than my usual roundup post of photos from my trip each time when I get back, I'm going to try and write some little features on some of the really beautiful historical sites and lovely little French towns in the area. That's if I don't end up sitting on the patio drinking wine and catching up on my reading every day that is! I'm lucky to live somewhere so interesting and so beautiful, so I'd love to be able to share it with you all!
This will be the first of my two trips this summer, as I said I'll be coming back for school gradation and the big blowout with my friends, then I'll be back in France for another week. I'll have my grandparents in tow on the second trip, so I promise I'll get some of the 'places to visit' in the area to write about on this visit, because most likely I'll be revisiting sites that fall more into the 'been there, done that' category!
I've scheduled some posts to go up while I'l gone, but I'll see you all next week! (While I'm gone, why not vote for me in the Missguided Blogger Social Style competition by liking my entry on Facebook? (If I win Missguided will give me £20 to spend in their store to give away to my lovely readers!)
