Ouch! Root Canal a la francaise!

What did I do today? Well, a couple of hours in the dentist’s chair, that’s what! I can certainly think of more enjoyable ways to spend my Thursday morning. You must excuse me as I don’t have any apt photos to go with this post! At least I didn’t have to go to the hairdressers. […]

And life goes on …

We are well, we are happy that we made the right decision and more importantly, at the right time, to send Charlie on his way … off to cause mayhem in doggie heaven no doubt! We’ve had the most incredible reaction to the death of Charlie, on Facebook alone I received so many kind comments […]

Goodbye Charlie Boy … RIP

I can’t believe this day has come, even though it was on the cards for a while. Our darling Charlie boy has died. I’m having a horrid day, I can’t stop crying, my eyes are stinging, I have a banging headache and a tightness in the back of my throat, Every now and then I […]

Everyone is an expert … and it makes my blood boil!

  We used to occasionally catch a program in the UK called ‘Come Dine with Me’. It’s an innocent, funny half-hour spent watching people cooking (and generally getting in a bit of a mess). The host invites 4 total strangers into their home to dine. The guests then judge their host, hospitality and of course […]

The People of Montpellier

Before you start reading this, I must warn you there is an overload of photos at the end … he he!!! The people from Montpellier are called Montpellierains or Montpelleriennes. I speak relatively good French but even for me I’ve found these two words a little bit of a mouthful, there is a fair bit of […]

Noise!

Well, here as promised is my post all about noise in Montpellier. It’s not something you can ignore that’s for sure! Montpellier is the city of music. We somehow managed to time our arrival in Montpellier (unknowingly) so that it coincided with ‘The Festival of Music’. Don’t get me wrong, we both love music but […]

Montpellier–first impressions

OK so we’ve been here for just over 3 months, that’s just about enough time for us to start settling in and getting to know our way around the city. We obviously don’t look like new arrivals anymore as amazingly, we find more and more often, people are asking us for directions and questions in […]

Hidden Gypsy has a new tag line!!

I haven’t written a blog for quite a while (July 24th to be precise) and I’m missing it … missing it like mad, it’s like an itch that I just have to scratch.!  What am I missing about it? It seems strange to hanker over something which I don’t even find particularly easy to do.  […]

Bumper Edition!

I’m on my own!!! The Hubster has gone to see a friend and so I’m going to bore the pants off you! Sorry but I have a backlog of photos that I want to share! You’ll have got the feeling, by now, that we are really enjoying Montpellier. It is such a vibrant city, although […]

Married … How long????

Yes, it’s hard to believe that the Hubster and I have been married for 34 years! I can’t believe it, (I don’t think he can believe it!) that’s more than half our lives! I won’t go into all the slushy stuff, about my friend, my lover, my confidante, but suffice to say that we are […]
