We are just back from our holiday in France, we've had a great time, the weather was wonderful, apart from the odd moment but well into the high 20's low 30's degree centigrade.... phew a bit hot at times!!
Our base was Montagnette, Barbentane, which is just outside Avignon, we stayed in a lovely villa which was a real home from home, beautifully equipped, clean and roomy, which I would highly recommend if you are looking for a base for a family holiday. Each bedroom had its own facilities which was great, no queueing!!
A very hot walk - can you spot the yarn shop bottom right
Of course there a hundreds of pictures of this little man! His new favourite is his bicycle seat, off to the bakers, then back for his second breakfast
More Rufus, well why not - all the fun of the fair in Graveson village, plus a sit in a lorry, he seem to do this a lot, the boy is obsessed with all things mechanical, tractors being his favourite
Fete day - bull running in the street (controlled by horse) then the bull fight - well not really a fight, more wind the bull up, try not to get a horn up your bottom and get a tag on the horns, you need to be very athletic! Rufus loved this until the 'bull' hubby says they were heifers came over the wooden barrier. I think he enjoyed the sugar crepe in the interval more.
We also went to the market in St Remy (huge) and then on to Arles but I forgot our camera. It was good to share the holiday with our family, I hope they enjoyed it as much as we did, though the 4 days we had on our own was very quiet. I did manage to get 2 books read but only 6 rows of knitting done - far to hot.
Drunk far too much wine, ate too much bread/cakes/croissants, so back to being good now, but then what are holidays for..............
