Only weather

I am distracting you with some weather pictures as there is nothing else going on here. This is the last morning I will have this view of the Chartreuse from my bedroom, my new view is of Chamrousse, I think.
I might be offline for a few weeks as even although I am actually only moving to the next block but one away, my new internet/phone connection is going to take about a month, that's right, 1 month with no internet. ick!
The moving is mostly done, right now I am in the old apartment, with computer, which is good, but no coffee machine,which is bad, I do have a kettle, but no teabags.
So I made my coffee in the new apartment and walked over here with it. Luckily I didn't meet any of my neighbours, take-away coffee is an unknown here.
I bought 4 dress patterns, which arrived yesterday, they are the reproductions of vintage patterns, 3 from 1957 and 1 from 1960, so some dress sewing is definitely on the cards once the boys leave for Scotland.
My Mum and Jake left on Wednesday and unfortunately got held up at the airport due to technical problems, so my poor Mum spent 12hours at the airport here and then they had to spend the night at the airport in London to catch the first flight to Glasgow, nightmare!
I hope that doesn't happen to the boys when they are travelling alone.
Okay, I am off to finish packing.......and dream of finding some knitting time, or even my knitting!

Oh my goodness, Yvette! Those photos are so beautiful... and so SCARY! Wow.

I suppose not having the internet for a month will help with the unpacking and everything, but we'll miss you!

I'll leave the light on...

That looks like something out of one of those apolyptic films. Wow, what a view. x

Amazing photos! I'm guessing the air pressure over the mountains causes such dramatic clouds. Good luck with the move - look forward to seeing your new view.

Yvette - having probs with hotmail today.... I'm free now for the Thurs or Frid, whichever suits you - I'll send you a text so that you have my mobile so we can arrange things.
Looking forward to the lesson - I've seen some jersey patterns I like, so it'll be great to be able to sew them, to say nothing of the other tircksy fabrics.

As, a frequent mover myself, (6 times in the last 12 years), I feel your discomfort. Hopefully, you can get your personal stamp on the new place quickly. I'll look forward to your return to blogging.

I like your photos of the weather. They are so beautiful and they make me home sick...

I am from France and living in the US, in a very flat mountainless state... Uuurgh

Well, thanks anyway for showing me the country! :-)
