this one's for you Madame du Barry

Having taken the hint of 'avid fan' I am trying to catch up on a bit of blogging- never was a good diary-keeper or pen-pal in my youth, in fact couldn't see the point of a diary as I could remember quite clearly what I'd done and did not like the idea of anyone else reading my secrets.......
I wonder if the original Madame du Barry kept a diary, what a life-a courtesan, politics , jewellery smuggling, the Reign of Terror and then off with your head.
Makes the soon- to-be election look positively mundane.
(Did anyone notice John Howard's wearing fake tan?)


  1. Dear Ms Pen Pen - can I just say the Peg Bags are just beautiful - as is the new living room (invite please). Im bored too. so there you go. i am surrounded by coloured bits of paper and watercolour pencils and all I can think about is having to wait a whole week to watch the bionic woman. glad to see you blogging again
    Madame du B
