A mini break

Tomorrow, all being well, I'm going on a mini-mini break with my mum. We're off to Lille on Eurostar, to see the Christmas market and have a mooch around the city. I'm desperately hoping that our trip won't be delayed by floods, high winds or more rain, because we're only there for one night. There's certainly a lot of water around us at the moment:

The fields have turned into lakes.

Two people I know have written off their cars by driving through puddles which turned out to be very deep, and of course there are some sad stories on the news of people who have been flooded out of their homes. I can't imagine what that is like. Here's hoping that the rain has stopped now. See you on Friday and I hope that I might have some lovely French photos to show you. 


  1. Have a lovely time with your Mum. Think the forecast is for very chilly but not too wet. Karen X
