I’m now back home in Blighty and last week seems like a dream, not least because its very cold here! Vee is still out there and how I wish I could join her. The last couple of days were spent supposedly relaxing but we still managed a fair few miles walking around. I went back to a fabric shop in the old town and indulged myself in some Provencal fabric. I bought 2 metres of one and two half meters to make edgings for various bits and bobs.
We enjoyed ourselves on ‘The mountain’, as we have named it, and I managed to retake most of the photos I deleted, what I didn’t take, Vee has promised to take for me. I did some drawing and we generally spent the day up there. We took packed lunches and had a beer at the restaurant so we were well catered for. On the way home we bought some bits for Rich so he too would have a ‘welcome’ basket.
We ate out again at La Lunel, cheap but cheerful and on our last night had a meal at the Vieux Foure which was very good. Prior to that we had drinks in the Port to get the last rays of sunshine. We were quite surprised to arrive back at the restaurante to find it already overflowing with cliental.
We had to be up early again for the flight home, but nothing like on the way to Nice. We caught the bus at 7.30 am, from the port, after a tearful farewell with Vee. All went very smoothly at the airport, we saw Rich arrive but he didn’t see us. Vee was meeting him and apparently they saw us take off from the bus. Can’t wait to go back!
Now I have to get ready for Oslo! It will be quite a bit colder so after dropping mum off for her coach, in the pouring rain, I bought two jumpers in Dingles sale so I am now prepared!
