Summer Holidays!

Ahh the stressful economy airline delays, the cries of 'are we there yet?', my children (and I) only taking sandals and it pouring with rain for two days - it must be our summer holiday to france!




Seriously though, we had a lovely time staying with mon mere and mon pere en france. It was the first time I have seen their 'project'  - a gite that was pretty dilapidated a year ago and now just plain pretty.

Last year we went 5* in Mauritius but it matters not to my little monkeys - sitting on the back of a sit down lawnmower late in the evening in rural france tops the charts for them which says a great deal.


 And they adored swimming in the overground pool with views over the farmland...



And exploring outside as boys do...



But we all enjoyed roaming around the weekly market and the resulting lunch so much that I won't dwell too long on the four hour delay due to lightening striking the plane and will instead look into ferry crossings...

I adore france. Visited for the first time this year and I understand why folks love it so much. You are Lucky to have parents living in a French gite!
