... for a spot of lunch, mmmmmm French bread, ham, Brie, and Mayo , I'm saving my juicy tomatoes for tea. The temperature is hotting up, 30 degs outside, thank god for aircon. Arrived after just the one turn around, which was Mr Tom's fault, he said carry on I said "Ooooo look there's the sign for our site, turn left, which Andy did, and came to a barrier at the end of the road, a little discussion pursued, as you can imagine, and we turned round to follow Mr Tom, who was totally wrong ...
... the region and this evening the air was heady with the scent of lavender.

... Kathleen has decided to go on the wagon after her exploits at the hen party. This is good news for me as I get both glasses. Le Clos is a really nice hotel with superb food and is terrific value. It has been cold since we arrived in France. Too cold to eat ...

... pastry was used to create a classic Napolean (or Mille-feuille). After lamb shanks (in Morrocan inspired sauce, falling off the bone) the passion fruit creme brulee was served with a raspberry sorbet - the contrasting flavours played beautifully against each other. To me, a well prepared creme brulee is absolute and undeniable perfection.
