The sun is shining in Wales and tomorrow 65,000 people in the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff will be watching, on giant TV screens, the semi-finals of the World Cup when Wales plays France in New Zealand. The excitement is everywhere and there is no place I would rather be right now.
The weather's been mild and not too much of a shock after the temperatures in France. I lay in bed on Monday morning listening to the rain and felt truly home!
The paintings survived the journey and are ready for framing. Monday I start the search for a studio so that I can get back to work. But for now all thoughts are on the rugby match tomorrow.

Two more days

My son arrives from Frankfurt tomorrow and on Thursday we'll leave Montcuq and begin the drive back to Cardiff. It's very hot every day and it's a good feeling that this weather extends to Britain and family and friends are basking in high temperatures too. It has rained here very briefly on only two occasions since I arrived and I'm strangely looking forward to seeing some rain in Cardiff!
