Thanks for popping in.
Well, it’s Monday, and it’s time to come home.
Could I stay a little longer?
Has the Pope got a balcony?!?!
Linda and I were exploring Maribor yesterday, and we even found an old, delapidated building by the river which we decided had great potential.
“Would you buy it Linda?” I asked.
“I think I’d have to ask Rob first, but he’d love it too I’m sure” she replied.
And so would Dave.
I can’t wait to bring him back here.
My Mum has been to Slovenia, and she also told me that of all the places she has been in the world (and she has been to quite a few!) Slovenia is the place she would come back to.
We have been so lucky!
Firstly, the wonderful people who organise this annual art event,
Mihaela and Primoz, and their team of lovely people. The hospitality and kindness has been second to none. In all my days, I have never known such generosity and cordiality.
Seriously, this is an annual event, and were I a passionate crafter/arty person like you guys, this is a definite go-to destination.
I will give you the details later on in the week, so you can consider a week in Slovenia doing some workshops with some of the most talented artists around.
I was lucky enough to join in at one of the water-colour sessions.
But more of that later.
And the food! My word! I have NEVER eaten such fantastic food.
Primoz and Mihaela treated us all to unique and super culinary delights every single evening.
Back to the diet tomorrow!
Then there was meeting the other artists from all over the world, soaking up their creative energy and watching them perform.
What an eye opener this has been.
And the workshop guests!
So alert and willing to try anything.
Just like you actually.
And lastly, there was Linda. A whole week of Linda Williams.
What a marvellous time we have had.
I haven’t laughted so much in years.
Talk about click!
What a great friend she is, and what super company.
But now I must dash.
Breakfast is calling.
A coachload of Chinese tourists landed late last night;
I wonder whether they will love it as much as we have.....
Love & hugs,
