A brief lull on the crooked path to our great escape

Francetaste, you might want to look away now. I know you want to see the bigger picture but the detail is all I have right now.

I’ve just packed the penultimate box . Or rather repacked a box that had stuff randomly thrown into it the last time we moved! 

It’s a microcosm of my top priorities really; good food, beautiful hand made objects, some hooks to hang all that art and mirrors.

The serious countdown has started

Five, four, three, two, one

    I know where to head for dinner in a short while then 😉 And it’s OK, I’m used to driving vast distances xx

    How exciting this is! I’m holding a good thought for safe and uneventful passage for you and Trevor and all of your treasures.

    • Hold that thought!
      Honestly we have had such lovely, positive support from close friends and total strangers wishing us well on our way.
      Hope you have recovered from your big move?

        By and large, yes. We’ve had the usual hiccups of bureaucratic issues to deal with, but are over our jet lag and finding new delights and mysteries in our long walks around the city. Very happy to be in France!

    This photo is full of good things!
    When my best friend graduated from the CIA (Culinary Institute of America! Not the spies. Though my husband would argue that culinary and America are a contradiction of terms), I searched high and low for a Larousse Gastronomique…in English. Found one–and it was a fortune, even second hand. I keep looking for another for myself. (Jealous!)
    Did you know it was first written by Prosper Montaigne of Carcassonne?
    Drove through your town last weekend during Ferme en Ferme. Nice upgrades to the sidewalks!
    Eagerly awaiting your arrival!

    • Yes the upgrades are great, unfortunately they don’t extend to our medieval village centre which still has very rough lumpy little lanes. Still, proud to have our very own speed humps!

      Trev found our English translation Larousse online from the “Book people”, think around £25 though priced at £60.
