Vacances en France

In all honesty I am not brim full of anticipation but the countdown to this years ‘Grand Tour’ has begun. I have tended the garden ie killed off as many weeds as I could find. Not seen any slugs yet but . . .
Rescuing the suitcase from the newly insulated loft took a tad longer than anticipated but hey, thats all in the schedule! Next was to write a list of items to go in the suitcase! Sunday lunch was roast chicken with potatoes and parsnips. A treat but after all it was a ‘Bank Holiday’ Today will be chicken curry !
Not being here next weekend means I shall miss seeing Dr Who’s daughter, mother of Susan I must presume. [ The Doctors first companion for those in the know!]. I will also not see the culmination of our soccer league.
Have bought some Euro’s to spend. The rate per £ has increased 30% since I last went to Europe two years ago. It has taken 3 days to find my umbrella!! The long range forecast for France is nt too good. . . !!
This time next week I shall be in Tours, having spent Saturday night in Paris. From Tours it will be onwards through the Loire valley to Bordeaux. Sampling the local brews on the way! Following a day in Rocamador we travel on to Orange and Avignon via Carcassone. From there we are on the homeward leg – via Lyon and Paris.
Back at the castle in time to watch the European Cup Final, where in Moscow, [Russia], Manchester United will play Chelsea. Will we be CHAMPIONS then?
