Bonjour! Hope you’re well. It feels like ages since my last newsletter, I missed sending it last week as I got stuck on a train going to Cannes that was 4 hours late and I ran out of time!
I have to say the south of France at this time of the year is amazing. Everywhere is covered in blossom heralding the first signs of spring; the scent of mimosa flowers in the mountainous areas in the interior was quite overwhelming. The sun shone in a deep blue sky, people sat outside cafés and restaurants enjoying al fresco meals in their T Shirts and aperos at dusk in the fresh air. When I got back to northern France it was to grey skies, wild gusts of wind as clouds galloped across the sky – and pouring rain!
It was good to get back to my animals who as always were pleased to see me, especially the ducks, chickens and geese. The other half who cared for them in my absence, doesn’t talk to them like I do and I’m sure they miss it. Sometimes I play them music – they really like Lady Gaga. Goodness knows what my neighbours think if they can hear me!
Wishing you a very bon weekend
Bisous from France
ps I’m really sorry if you got an email from me yesterday with links to past newsletters – my computer had a bit of a breakdown this morning which sent it crazy – don’t you just hate technology sometimes?!
