It has been months already my friends and I am sorry for my absence. As I said I have moved during first lockdown to the south west of France into a huge old house that needs a LOT of love and care. Problems with builders and suppliers took a lot of my energy and it took time to adapt to the mentality of the region. I then went to Scotland during this period and stayed two months, first in isolation in London then with mum in Scotland. Mum fell the next day and was found a day later and ended up in hospital for two months without me being 'allowed' to go visit her there. She is back home and is being cared for now and has an emergency button to call for help. I have thrown most of my energy into the garden and building raised beds for vegetables, fruit and flowers. It took a month to have compost delivered and today I moved fifty wheelbarrows of it as the truck couldn't access the plot.
I have been posting regulalry on Instagram under
so friends and family can follow the progress.
I miss making miniatures and Ramsay House is under a bedsheet for now. My work room is neglected and I hardly go there. I had to have the second floor completely insulated and am waiting for the electrics then I will use one of the rooms for a sewing room, one for a bedroom and two for storage.
Here are some of the photos that appear on Instagram but of course there is more if you pop over there as some of you have already done, thank you. I am not looking for millions of followers but simply to keep in touch with like minded people, miniaturists and decorators and gardeners.
Sending you all fond wishes and tons of hugs, see you soon.
Love to all, Mrs M xxx
