Well here in central France the super fresh oysters are just over 6 euro a DOZEN and a BOTTLE of pink Champagne is around 18 euro (£13.50) so that's a grand total of £17.80........and some people say France is expensive!
|Nothing better than oysters with some of Maureen's Bloody Mary relish (made with a dash of Vodka)|
|Down the hatch!|
Mid afternoon and we were enjoying an afternoon cuppa when we heard the unmistakable beat of helicopter blades - a very low helicopter. We dashed out onto the rear terrace and a yellow SAMU (Emergency services) helicopter was heading this way and we quickly realised he was looking for a landing spot! He descended towards the field adjoining the bottom of our rear garden but this contains three horses which became spooked so up he went again. I dashed into our small field and waved to indicate that maybe he could land here? Down he came and within seconds tthree nurses jumped out carrying bags. We then realised that there was a SAMU ambulance at the neighbours house so Maureen guided the medical people through our garden to the spot.
|Fortunately our rear lawn is a good size.|
|Its not every day you have a helicopter in the garden|
So maybe the title of this post needs to be remembered whilst we all have our feet on this good earth.
