I’m enjoying being back home in France. I’ve mostly unpacked now, I’ve got to sort out my loft sometime.

Clio and Brandy the cats have been entertaining – Brandy has been following me around like a shadow and perching on my shoulder. Clio pops in through the catflap every now and then.

Mum & Dad came over today to help me do some gardening and I cooked pizza and chips (well Mum did most of it!) then Pip & Jacques came over. We’ve been playing swingball at M&D’s house. Dad’s got a virus. The weather’s not great, although it picked up a bit today, so I might brave cleaning the pool tomorrow.

Next week we’re going to start removing the floor next door.
