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 […]

Bastille Day in Montpellier

It’s been really really hot down here, there is no wind, not a whiff, which means the heat seems to build up during the day and it’s quite suffocating. We resorted to putting Charlie in the bath and showering him with very tepid water, he’s finding it quite hard going – that’s why we’re so […]

Join us on our day out!

I have always wanted to go to the Camargue region in the south of France. It is a vast plain of salt lagoons and marshes. It is, above all known for the white horses, bulls and pink flamingos along with a hugely diverse range of wild birds.. How on earth we were going to manage […]

A different mode of transport!

Well this has been a first for me! Can you believe I’m in my 50’s and I’d never travelled on a tram? Sad isn’t it? Well, fear not dear reader I have now ticked that box. And if you’re going to travel by tram, Montpellier has a rather a impressive network of trams albeit just […]

Early Morning Trip … What a Palavas!!

As I explained yesterday, we’ve found a solution to getting out and about with Charlie,by getting up at the crack of dawn, while it is still cool enough for him to be comfortable. While we were in Spain, one of the things that brought us the most joy was seeing Charlie enjoying the beaches, not so […]

We had a cunning plan … and it worked!

At the risk of sounding really boring, it’s very hot at the moment. It’s kind of scuppered our plans for discovering the surrounding area. Poor Charlie is finding the heat exhausting, so for a dog who has already decided he doesn’t want to walk, the heat has totally put an end to any expeditions … […]

Au revoir La Dordogne and Bonjour Languedoc Roussillon

Eh oui!! We’re on the move again! When we set off in Harry over a year ago, there was one region in France that I really, really wanted to see … the south. We’ve spent holidays here but it’s difficult to see everything and immerse yourself in the region when you have just a one […]

In France with British Weather!

We’ve heard talk of a little village called Tremolat, so off we went, it’s renowned more than anything else for it’s 4 star Hotel called the Vieux Logis, it also boasts a Michelin Starred restaurant, it was delightful. A lovely little town, with a hairdressers, two boulangeries, a couple of bars and restaurants, an estate agency, […]

Going back in time!

Before I start to write this post, you must remember surely that I am probably one of the most fervent of Francophiles! I love France, I love the culture, the language, the history, the people, the countryside not to mention the food and the wine! Please bear this in mind when you read this post, […]
