Peter and Sue came for lunch on Sunday bearing gifts. Not only did they bring Champagne and plants for the garden but bacon and cheddar too. They had thought – if they lived in France, what would they miss the most? They decided it would be bacon and cheddar. We’ve had bacon here but we haven’t had a nibble of cheddar since we left England, so we are going to enjoy and savour every morsel.
The weather was fantastic, so we enjoyed a leisurely lunch outside then went for a walk around the hamlet. While the men talked mowers, strimmers and oil-fired boilers, Sue helped me identify some plants around the garden, which turned out to be weeds and poisonous too!!
