Not much happening here only MDF priming which is deadly boring…..

So instead some holiday pictures from France.  The first stage was the Somme Valley and a visit to the Great War Museum in Peronne and Thiepval Monument via a cemetery on the side of the road (of which there were many).  Very little of the landscape seems to have changed here, very flat with pockets of woodland and the occasional hill.  Very emotional and sad.

    We went to the Normandy beaches, it was very moving and very sad, we should never forget the ultimate sacrifice that was paid by all
