A week off!!

Yes I know, we’re not working, so how on earth can we take a week off? Well, we are busy doing up the house and we are now at a point where even though it’s far from finished, it’s livable and we were feeling ready for a break or at least a couple of days […]

Bucket List is shrinking!

Well, we’ve just got over the Easter weekend here in the South of France. Is it different to Easter in the UK? A little maybe, the first thing that is definitely amiss over here, are Hot Cross Buns! Having worked for Marks & Spencer in the past, Hot Cross Buns were something that I was […]

A hiatus … TTFN

I haven’t written a post for so long, we’ve been rather busy… … It seems that since we lost Charlie, as much as we loved him and miss him, we’ve found ourselves with so much more time on our hands. We’ve now fallen into a rather pleasant, yet exhausting Sunday afternoon routine. Our friends, here […]

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 […]

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 […]

Raising the Rainbow Flag …

Oh my goodness, this city is simply amazing! We have some friends that live here and they have been kind enough to lend us two bicycles, so we’re having fun scooting around. Although, we really should be more sensible and leave early in the cooler hours of the morning but by the time we’re up […]

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 […]
