Maximum temperature 19C, minimum 1C.  31 km/h SE wind. Dry.  Cloudy all day and it feels very much colder than 19C.  In fact we lit the fire today for the first time this winter.

  1. I think that you guys eat in restaurants more times in a month than we do in an entire year!

    1. This is a totally abnormal run. We generally do not get much further than the local repas that are held by the club and maybe a restaurant once in 3 months. Because of all the medical appointments I have had for my back, each one has been either just before, or just after lunchtime and in the city, so it has been a good excuse. Also we have a book that with six stamps at certain restaurants we will be given a bottle of champagne another great incentive!! If we make 10 visits to different restaurants on the list we get a free lunch. The latter though may be difficult as after 6 most places are too far away. We are just enjoying while we can :-) Diane

    1. LOL I love it that you are never rushed in France. Being retired makes it easy to eat slowly :-) Have a great weekend Diane
