A happy week of family visits
We have seen most of my sister’s family this week – by coincidence my oldest nephew booked our friend’s gite a couple of kilometres away and my younger niece is staying a little further South with two of her three boys. Her daughter, meanwhile, had just given birth to a 11lb baby boy, so could be forgiven for not coming with them.
In various permutations, lots of family meals and outings have given us enormous pleasure, culminating in a trip to Pirou chateau-fort followed by a wonderful meal at the nearby Restaurant de la Mer, looking out over the beach, the oyster beds and other delights.
I have eaten far too much this week, and it’s not over yet! We shall be 8 for a farewell lunch tomorrow in Les Gars-melles, the bistrot in our village, so I won’t have far to stagger home. We shall miss them when the last lot leave our shores tomorrow night.
