You can’t tell, what with that mask the guy in the pic is/was holding in front of his face.

This beauty is the baby of one of my bosses,she was born in July after a pregnancy of 22 weeks and three days,weighing less than a pound and is one of the smallest babies to survive, she is now at home and a happy six month old

Elizabeth, she’s gorgeous, how tiny she must have been at birth! It must have been such a worrying time for her parents, especially with Covid too.

Just had a visit from the festival committee chairman bearing gifts of wine, chocolates and madelines for both of us because our usual annual dinner was cancelled. Very generous and very friendly gesture. Vive la France :D

Yesterday actually. Finally getting my tongue around the word immatriculation. After another embarrassment of someone else having to say it for me, I came home and listened to Google translate say it about 20 times. Noo I'm walking aboot like Manuel from Fawlty Towers, "I can speak Eenglish. I learn eet from a book."

Getting into the car after doing a bit of shopping earlier one of the young lassies who work in the supermarket came running across the car park with some cheese I'd left at the checkout. How kind!

Heading back home now due to snow.

Glad you didn't lose your cheese stompie, I had to run out after someone the other week that had forgotten to lift their bank card after paying.

There was a knock on the door earlier, it was the son of the chasse president with a haunch and fillet of roe deer. Very nice indeed. We have been given something each year we've been here but those are the best bits so I'm feeling very honoured.

What a lovely delivery from the chasse. For several months now we’ve had to rely on Waitrose deliveries of venison - far better than no venison though!

Our door neighbour in the Gard often (used to) bring us delicious things he’d cooked, and aperos chez-eux were always a great treat; best not to have anything to eat for several hours beforehand. It definitely made up for any drops of blood from his garage under the apartments up in the lift and trails along to his apartment. If his wife was at home she quickly went to clean up, but if she was out on a walk or something it took rather longer,
