Hello everyone,

I always seem to have so many little stories, comments and trivia to write about but, as ever, time seems to catch up with me and they don't get written. When I was a child it seemed like half a year between breakfast and lunch. Now lunch seems to come 5 minutes after breakfast and is followed 5 minutes later by dinner; but here's one little post that I have managed to winkle into one of those minute gaps.

A model to follow...if you can


I've wandered in to visit Sr. Jose Fernando's workshop on several occasions and I feel cheered every time. I hope you will too.

Friends tell me it is still raining in Portugal, though we had a hint of sun as we left Porto on Tuesday. In the serras the broom was out, though not yet in full bloom, and wisteria was gracing the gardens walls of many village houses. We arrived in York to rain too but next day we had brilliant sunshine and 24C temperatures. Today we still have sun but it's cool. The countryside, however, is glorious: cherry and crab apple trees in bloom everywhere, hawthorn flowers perfuming the roadsides, delicate fresh green leaves on the deciduous trees and the white candles of flowers on the horse chestnuts outside my window. The bluebells are out in dusky blue drifts under woodland trees too.

Whether in rain or shine, in Portugal or elsewhere in the world, I wish you joy of this spring.
