Happy Monday morning to you all,
It is the 1st of August, or as the French call it Aout, pronounced oot, I cannot believe it is already this late in the summer, it seems like only yesterday we were looking forward to the summer, I guess it wasn't a good start to the year.
It's all or nothing here, either too cold or too hot or too wet, we had a wonderful visit from our dear friend Joy, but as the saying goes, "time flies when you are enjoying yourself" and indeed it did fly, no sooner she was here and she was gone again but we had a fantastic time and can't wait for her next visit.
We are missing our friend Fernando who is in America and not sure when he will visit but we live in hope.
Always time for ice cream
The snakes are about too
But I am digressing, August is the month when everything stops here in France, it is of course school holidays and everyone goes on holiday, the crazy thing is whole business's will close for the month and if you need anything sorted at maybe the prefecture you have no chance, i needed to make a medical appointment but found a message to say they would not be back until 17th August, crazy.
Our friends Neil & Carol are over for their holidays in their home in the village and we are spending lots of good time on the decking with them.
Please excuse the wrong dates on the pics, I am re-using them.
Are you on holiday this month?, let me know in the comments below.
