Bloggers meet up .. and wonderful goodies....

Back in September I wrote
about a lovely  lady named Diane
whose blog is called

Diane splits her time between
Fance and the UK, until the
time that her husband can retire,
and the move will be permanant

What a shock and surprise
to find out that we live in the
same English Village.

And we met today!!!

Diane has a  very interesting story, so why not
have a read from the start!!

Look at the wonderful goodies
Diane brought for me..

An assortment of homemade confitures  and a ..........

Pumpkin from her garden...

Great to meet you Diane and a big Thank you for the goodies.

Things are a little bit hectic for Diane at the moment, but
I am sure we will meet up again soon.
