Friday 24. 09. 10 I have been back a week now and it has taken me this long to get organized. George and Laurene picked me up at the airport, I have seen Gisèle and Jonathan and Carol. French classes have started again. I have reconnected with Kevin. Today went to the Alechinsky show in Aix with George and Laurene and think I have finally found a way of doing something with my trip across Canada. Looking forward to finally getting back into the studio next week.

Tuesday 14. 09. 10 It has been a busy week. Besides catching up on all the people I didn’t see before I went out west, I have been to a show of Betty Goodwin’s notebooks at the AGO, seen The American starring George Clooney, and went to the Cabbagetown Festival which was excellent this year. This evening I went over to Carole’s for my last dinner before heading back to France tomorrow. Besides the roast beef and yorkshire Daisy read out a long thank you and description of our trip out west. I had a great time too Daze and thank you!
Friday 03. 09. 10 Left the ferry around noon and drove to Langley. Got a bit lost in the world of malls in Langley but eventually found our hotel. Checked in and cleaned up. Friday morning drove into Vancouver and dropped off the car and met up with the family. Explored Granville Island and then back to Langley for a BBQ at Hart and Pat’s Nic’s (the groom) Mum and Dad’s place. Saturday morning, all dressed up we drove to Hart House In Burnaby for the wedding. Low, key, friendly and intimate, elegant but informal. We all had a great time and Daisy even caught the bouquet thrown by the bride. Mid afternoon we went back to the hotel where Andrew, Patrick and I sat in the hot tub and had a swim in the pool. Back to Hart and Pat’s in the evening for another wonderful gathering of family and friends. Sunday morning Rob and Heather drove us to the airport and we flew back to TO where we were met by Jason and Julia. And the wedding bouquet survived the flight intact!!!
