So, anyone who’s a regular Chez l’abeille reader may have noted the slight absence of anything new on the blog for the whole of August. Normally I aim to give you at least two new updates a month but you know… August, travel, intermittent wi-fi…so the next few posts are going to be all about my rather fabulous summer travels.
First up is France. I hadn’t actually planned to head over to France this summer but when Mardi called in to say she and Neil were heading over to stay in their bijoux pied à terre in Nérac, I was straight onto the european train timetable and booking annual leave.
We’ve been around this area of France before so the holiday was much more a home stay. This suited me fine as it’s been a long old year in the world of education and I was totally ready for a complete sit down with more than a cup of tea in front of me!
One of our favourite pastimes is visiting the weekly markets – which given every hameau, village, ville and cité in France has one, makes it very much a daily occurrence. The market in Nérac is always a busy one, full of pretty much anything you might need. As well as the usual bread, cheese, fruit and veg, our haul of goods from several markets this year included a panama hat and an oil cloth for the kitchen table!
Here then are some of the delights from the market in Nérac.
