I'm running about one day late with my posts but this is the great thing about the tune-up. A couple of lines, a photo or two and I'm back in the present.
It is quite harder to find some blogging time while entertaining visitors, dealing with broken fridges and faulty washing machines.
Monday 28th July is mum's birthday. We had a late breakfast and headed to La Roque-Gageac for a riverboat cruise along the Dordogne. The cruise followed a similar route our canoe trip but was bit more sedate in style, so it was perfect for the occasion.
It turned into a really hot day, so much so I just had to go for a swim in the river.
After a quick lunch in the park, Ange and us boys rushed home for a swim, while Lainey and Ros took the tourist route home stopping off at Daglan. Daglan is really beautiful - I must get some photo's posted.
Hope all is well back home in NZ - lots of bad winter storms. I'm also too scared to phone James to see if our house is still there. I'm sure it is.
On the same note, we get our NZ mail redirected to France (which adds around a 6 week delivery delay), anyway our rates advice from North Shore City arrived yesterday, our rates have gone up by 75%. What's the story with that?
Monday night we all had dinner at the small "Routiers" restaurant in Saint Cernin. In was great meal, we were all impressed. It is funny how a small restaurant, which is attached to the petrol station, can turn out such great food. Another place to add to the "must return to" list.
Yes - this is a rambling entry. Did you read the introduction?
