WHAT DID YOU DO LAST WEEKEND
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of April 16. You never know if you need an alibi ! If you participate please put the little logo on the top of your post and leave your link.
When I came back from Southern France where I had spent a week with Claudie my ancient "virtual" friend who now became a real one in flesh and blood, Mr. G. was sick and I very tired, so we just didn't do anything besides he caughing and sneezing and sleeping and I busy with my photos. So that's not very interesting that's why I prefer to describe my last weekend.
Here I found the ideal place to update my blog daily on her balcony.
When I arrived in Marseille at 10 am they immediately took me to the family property where her sister lives and where she is building her new house. It's a beautiful place overlooking the sea from far.
it's growing slowly, slowly, from what I could see from the plans it will be very beautiful !
Her sister had invited us to celebrate the 2nd birthday of her little granddaughter and we had a barbecue on the property. Of course I had forgotten a hat to protect my head against the sun, so Claudie's sister gave me an old hat, which made me look like Miss Marple !
We all watched when the little granddaughter blow out her 2 candles, which really was a hard work !
After our barbecue we went home and the "fiesta" continued. I really felt home, because it was like in Italy, people from the South are so open and cheerful, even the plants and trees and the color of the houses reminded me Mr. G's region.
Claudie and her husband Pierre had invited their sisters plus husbands and a friend and we were again around 10 people. Pierre prepared a delicious buffet.
Doesn't it look yummy ?
We chatted and laughed but at 11 pm, I left them to fall into my bed, I was so tired because of the early flight and all the events I went through the whole day. I slept like a baby !
Next day we ate the left overs (not me alone !) before starting my "sightseeing tour" of the region.
And the flat on the last floor was my home for the week.
