In these arms again

Hello, hope you missed me dearly. Ten days of eating galettes, translating L'Equipe, walking plentifully along pavementless main roads (and being hooted at by French van drivers for doing so) and reading Wuthering Heights, and I'm back home.

Yes, it was divine, thanks for asking.

Give me chance to unpack and collect the dogs from the kennels in the next village and I'll be back with you. Have I missed much?

Where's that brie then?

Glad you had a good time.

Brie simply doesn't keep on overnight car ferries, F-C. Soz.

Love the new look by the way. And gutted I missed the Phoenix's brush with the ex-Mark McLaughlin.

Any trips to Mr Bricolage?

Matthew Rudd said...

One or two, one or two... M. Leclerc received daily custom too.

I adore France. I would really really love to live there.

Ouf. Allowing your brie to 'rest' overnight on a nice warm car deck is the best way to get it good and 'runny'. You missed out there.

Glad you had a good time. It's great, isn't it? I'm heading back again soon - sadly not forever (yet).

My immediate goal as far as French exploration is concerned is to travel the whole country via its rail network, taking in the big cities.

The countryside is just adorable.
