Oh dear, it's been so very long since my last holiday abroad, I think I deserve a break, don't you? Anyway, I have booked budget air tickets to Carcassonne in France with that famous luxury airline - Ryanair. We leave tomorrow morning - just me and our daughter Frances. Shirley's back at work - earning money to keep me in the manner to which I have become accustomed.
All being well, we'll pick up a hire car from the airport and then drive forty miles westwards to my brother's peaceful country retreat in the foothills of The Pyrenees - not far from the town of Foix in the L'Ariege region. Blogger friend Jenny de Wrexham has been there a couple of times but I haven't been since my brother Robin and his girlfriend Suzy built a swimming pool. Frances has never been there and to be truthful she probably deserves a break much more than I do. She's has been beavering away since last September at her recruitment consultant job in Leeds.
I'll be back next Sunday - the 22nd - hopefully with some new photos to share with you so once again this blog won't be refreshed for a while. Au revoir mes amis!
