Welcome to my "regular" Tuesday ramble:

  • Best of luck to Kevin and Chrissy for this weekends "King of the Bays" ocean swim event - I'm very jealous.  Kevin we expect you to be first overall and not just first in the men's open section - kick faster dude.
  • We leave for London in just a few days now (Saturday) and there is still a fair bit of planning to do.
  • We have been introduced to some neighbours around the corner who own an Auberge (restaurant) that is based on a Gaul theme (aka Obelix) it is called Le Gaulois.
  • They run farm tours through their farm of deer and wild pigs. The restaurant looks fantastic and is run off a set menu which includes a "pig on the spit" type meals.  This looks like it will be a great place to take visitors.
  • On Saturday we went to a BBQ-Curry Evening with the two British families that also have kids at Le Got. Didn't get much French practice but it was a great evening. Kids had fish and chips which went down a treat:)
  • Had a meeting at the school on Monday to discuss boys progress. It was quite positive but it is hard going and they still need all our support.
  • Been watching the breaking news unfold on the school river trip tragedy in NZ - very sad.
And finally:

Here is the promised picture of Morfeat our illusive cat enjoying some one on one time with James.
