In the final week of my 7 week trip...amazing how time flies and also amazing how much you can jam into 6 weeks without even really trying too hard!
After the weekend in Fayence I returned to base camp in Beaulieu. Poor Serge now instead of two women in the house there are three....as the lovely Claire has joined us from New Caledonia! First time the three of us have been together since 1998. Not sure that anyone but Serge can really appreciate the impact of that!
Our first full day together we of course went shopping! The main goal was to buy accessories for the 1960's party that Claire and I are going to on Saturday. As usual though we got distracted by shoes and dresses! Discovered some amazing wigs in the African hairdressing section of Montpellier. Note that Claire is sporting 'one' of her purchases in the photo above.
Had a great day wandering up and down the tiny little alleyways of old Montpellier. Far too much laughter and fun was had as we burned a hole in Claire's credit card! Here is a tiny sample of her purchases.
Yesterday was spent adding more touches to our outfits. Three mad women sitting around the sewing table with cotton, needles, fabric and jewellery flying in all directions!
Clothes, shoes, jewellery organised, we now just have to practise putting on our makeup! More to come on that.....
in the meantime I'll leave the final word about all this activity to the cat
