Fun Time Again

Another great week but this time spent with my sister Natalie and her hubby Graham. The weather was mixed but on the day we decided to do a boat trip on the Marais at Coulon, the sun was shining. We took the 2 hour trip and to start with, we took it in turns to row, but Roger took over and what a great boats man he was. The Marais is so peaceful and pretty, well worth a visit. The bikes and the tractor were well used again and thanks to them both for giving our lawn a good mow. On the wet days we were industrious in the kitchen, we made fig chutney, plum jam and froze lots of plums and raspberries to use later. Our French lessons have come to an end for the summer, so to celebrate, Meridien Green lay on an end of term picnic with a BBQ and a band. Again the weather was kind to us and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Another lovely week over too fast.

    1. Sadley no cherries, the birds got them first. We think these are damsons, a fruit tree we didn't know we had. We made jam and put loads in the freezer x
