The pool is OPEN

Happy 53 Mumma

Okay… not a lot about liam in this post either!! As luck would have it, my birthday (again) fell just after the rules started to relax in France, and the curfew had been pushed back a bit, and outdoor restaurants were allowed to open. So we book our favourite...

Getting out in the new ‘hood.

Sorry we haven’t posted since we’ve moved!! It’s been a lot of ‘settling in’ — and the short days and dark evenings don’t help. We’re loving the new flat. As you’ll see in the photos, the view is EVERYTHING. But...
