My sincere condolences to all the families and friends lost in the terrible attack in Paris last night. It's unbelievable what the human species is capabale of doing. The wonderful student, Mathilde, told us today that everyone was lighting a candle in their windows today to show solidarity, so we have done the same. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
We have been having the most magnificent November I've ever had here in France weatherwise and have had magnificent views of the Pyrenees. This is what it looked like a couple of days ago.
Today you will be meeting two wonderful “Aliens”, Anja and Stefan (two great German campervan friends), a wonderful student Capucine (beautiful name for a beautiful girl who we called Cappuccino all week!) and the always wonderful friend, Deirdre, who all came for a Pizza Night on my birthday the 28th of October. Yes, it was yesterday and you are still welcome to send gifts!
The Husband and I were lucky enough to spend some time in England in April with my lovely parents and aunt and uncle. Our luck increased when the French Air traffic controllers went on strike and we had to harass my poor aunt and uncle with 3 more days in their home. Thanks Peter and Wendles for putting up with us yet again!
Can you see what I see in the photo? A wooden leg! What? Yes! One of the birds has a wooden leg! Okay, so maybe it's not a wooden leg, but it has a stump and makes a footprint and a hole. It still ran faster than me so I couldn’t get you a solitary photo, but the group is beautiful too.
