Holiday in France

I've just come back from a relaxing holiday in France with my family.The above picture is of Marciac in the Gers region where we stayed. I will upload some more pictures soon. We had such lovely weather, it was as hot as 40degrees some days. Our last night there was still around 34 degrees at 9pm! We had a week of sun, walks, relaxing and eating! Of yes, and we did a bit of wine drinking too! Our hosts introduced us to a sweet wine called Floc which is produced in the region. It has quite a high alcohol content, 17% I think.Unfortunately it's back to work with a bang and back to dreary wet weather......

My Marley

Marley ( I called him that because of the movie with the naughty dog - and yes he lives up to the name!) has found himself a new resting place. CJ made a pot plant holder which contains some bulbs which come up at spring time. It is now 'summer' and they are no longer sprouting. Marley has decided it is the perfect place to sleep and play!
He fits perfectly but unfortunately for him, his brother has taken a liking to the spot as well.
