It's not long now!  Preparations are well under way for the start of the Olympics here in Weymouth and Portland.  The Banners have been put up all along the roads to Portland.  We are bracing ourselves for the influx of hundreds if not thousands of people and all the extra traffic!!

 Soon these deserted and tranquil beaches will be packed with people.  Lets hope the weather takes a turn for the better.  We need the wind for the sailors and windsurfers but we don't want rain. 
And please, please let the sun shine.  It makes such a difference.  The area is outstandingly beautiful winter and summer but that golden orb in the sky makes such a difference.  After all the hard work that has been going on for years
I hope and pray things will all go smoothly and that there won't be any disasters. 

Linda and I are running away to Cornwall for the opening week-end.  We are due at Cowslip Workshops, Launceston.  Our most favourite place of work.  We will be there Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th with our French linens and fabrics and other goodies.  We always look forward to our visits to Cowslip as it is so relaxing and inspirational.  We are both very tired from a gruelling schedule of Fairs with many driving hours and early mornings behind us.  We need a rest!!
