"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

We arrived safely to Floc Ferme, our gite for the week yesterday. It was lovely to catch up again with our hosts, Robin and Susie, but, unfortunately here, it is a 'chilly' 20 odd degrees and we have already had rain twice! It is clearing up now and the sun is doing its best to peep out from behind the clouds, so we are hoping for an improvement for the rest of the week. (Bet the sun is cracking the flags back in Wrexham!)
Internet is very hit and miss here, so blogging will be curtailed and no photos just yet but for now, it's just pleasant to be 'en vacances' and we are making the most of it.

If it's any consolation, it is threatening rain here and has cooled considerably. But the internet connection is probably better!

Weather report from Sheffield - At seven thirty this evening I was sunbathing next to the potato patch at the bottom of our garden. On "Countryfile" they said that this had been the driest start to a year in Britain since 1929! When we had those floods a couple of years back "experts" said we could expect flooding each summer because of global warming! Numbskulls! Happy Holiday! (Robin told me you look just the same as you did two years ago! A compliment my dear!)

Great, I bet you wish you were in front of the clss once again1 Hearing a school bell on a monday morning srill makes me smile after all these years.

Oh, me too, Ken! I still get a kick out of walking the dog after 9am and knowing that children and teachers are all in school. :)
YP, a compliment indeed. Enjoy your potato patch sunbathing - better than doing actual gardening, n'est ce pas?
SP, you are definitely right about the internet connection - works on alternate Thursday when there's an 'r' in the month, I think. ;)
