Actually life on the road has stopped still. No photos yet so I'm using shots from earlier in the holiday as my piccies have gone down well will some of you who've commented. Here's one from a gorgeous morning walk on the Crozon Pennisula that I took alone whilst Louis had one of those long teenage lie ins. The next picture is another beautiful Chagall painting from the exhibition at Landerneau. You might even get a scene from Quiberon if I write enough. Often I have no idea how posts are going to pan out
Remember Bob the Fish who allowed Lou to experience his first catch? I've already had a lovely time catching up with him and his wife, Cloudy Karen, over a couple of jars of the pink stuff. As I predicted it involved rather a lot of mirth. They have a son, Ollie, who's here with a friend so Lou has people of his own age to muck around with. This is v. good as sadly, the teenage code is different from my own and that of younger kids. It doesn't involve approaching random strangers and making new acquaintances. That just isn't cool.
that Sound and Light show where I met Cro. The thing that the Viking is holding appeared to be a severed head. Family entertainment at its best! Haven't we done a lot and there's still nearly a week to go!
Our North American holiday last year demonstrated the restorative benefits of a three week summer break. It's such a lovely long time to have away from work. I'm so grateful that my generous NHS long service holiday entitlement gives me the privilege of being able to have extended time to chill, potter, ponder and play. So I've decided to make this extra long break a tradition. With an emphasis on self catering and focusing on free and low cost activities rather than visiting costly attractions this doesn't have to be expensive. Being on holiday for extra weeks can be just as cheap as staying at home.
