Catching up with Old Friends.

Hello dear peeps! I hope the sun is shining on you today! It is shining here in the middle of France, although there is a chilly breeze. It's better than Wednesday when it chucked it down, and Thursday when there was a wind that cut right through you. The sun was out but I was still wearing two fleeces!

We had a good time with Huw and Trish - Mr FD & Huw reminisced about their days at Uni, but we also talked a lot about music, films, life-in-general. We drank a bottle of fizzies, a bttle of white and most of a bottle of red between us, as we had paté (Forestière and Foie Gras) followed by a raclette. Then we had more cheese and a (bought) Tarte Tatin with caramel ice cream. It was all very nice. As they had a bit of leeway, they stayed on Thursday morning, so we did a tour of the area

to the Chateau d'Urfé (image source)

and then to Cervières (image source)

Back for lunch - home made leek and potato soup, bread, cheese, paté, brioche-au-pralines, chocolate biscuits...
 


and then they clambered on their motor cycle and headed off.

It was a good time.

I was planning on writing a longer post but t'internet is being ultra s-l-o-w this morning so I will catch up with you beauties on Monday. Tonight Mr FD and I are heading to a nice hotel to have a lovely meal and to stay overnight. Celebrating 30 years of marriage. Not bad, eh?
