FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1. After having driven Claudie's daughter to Aix en Provence where she lives and goes to University, we quickly returned home because the Mistral wind was blowing so strongly and it was ice cold !
Fortunately it stopped in the afternoon as sudden as it had started.
2. Before going shopping in Ollioules we went down to the seafront and had our crèpes (pancakes) for lunch, salty of course.
As you can see they were real huge and served with a bowl of cider.
Claudie was looking for curtains for her kitchen and we found these nice once for a very good price we also bought some doormats and other little useful things for the new built house.
I like to go shopping in another country, now it's so easy to compare prices because we all pay in Euros except the English, Danish, Swedish and Norvegian "Europeans". They have to have their calculator and convert.
Here is our space for blogging, where we were busy to answer emails and I wrote my posts.
On my last evening we had local mussels with French fries, the mussels had another taste and were smaller as those I am used to in Belgium.
The last glance on the property and the two watchdogs from the neighbor who barked me good bye, one was so fat that I wonder if he would have been able to catch me ! Then Claudie drove me to the airport in Marseille, where I took my flight back home.
I arrived 45 min late and poor Mr. G. was waiting over an hour, he was there far too early. The plane had been delayed because of the strong wind in Brussels and when I arrived it was raining cats and dogs. The short way from the airport gate to the car and we were both completely wet.
Arrived at home I was greeted by an equally wet Arthur !
Who dried himself on the table.
