|With the mercury eventually hitting 55c in early August we needed to relax!|
My rather miserable excuse is that our BLOG reflects life here in central France, relaxed and slow, but as with all things its time to bring you news both for those planning to stay in the gite and friends alike.
|The publicity 'caravan' included all manner of weird and wonderful transportations!|
We were pleased to be able to watch the 'Tour de France' which passed close once again, as you know the GB team once again stood a good chance so we were out with friends to support the team
|And they arrive at last - in less than a minute they are gone but its worth the wait!|
|The flower beds are now well established|
|The second terrace in the garden is a cosy corner that catches the evening sun and provides a cool place to enjoy that excellent local wine!|
|One view of private garden for the cottage and shade from the two plane trees.|
August is the time we organise the Mechoui ( The roast sheep barbecue). Its an annual event with the vast majority of locals attending. This year our cottage guests also attended and even more amazing they managed to survive the days eating and drinking.
|The sheep slowly roasting from early morning.|
|Preparations getting underway at the neighbours farm|
|An Englishman playing petanque! It'll never catch on!|
|Darkness falls - and we start eating again!|
