C'est le printemps...

Forecast is for grey and rain all week, except for Tuesday, when it is supposed to be sunny and 7O° degrees. And so it goes, Spring in the south of France. Do I wear the winter coat, the boots, take the umbrella or get the flip flops out? Makes getting myself and the 2 little ladies dressed in the morning so much more 'fun'.

Life is ticking along pleasantly here. Just booked our summer holiday near Sansepolcro in Tuscany, the calendar is filling up with summer visitors, and had a great night on Saturday night at an outdoor (okay, heated terrace) local food and wine fête in Béziers. Summer is so close I can almost taste it.

On the agenda this week, delving into the winter-torn garden, a very first gymnastics meet for my 7-year old, and a trip to the circus for my 5-year old (the one child who is most likely to run away with the circus).

Happy Spring wherever you are, may your days be filled with bright yellow flowers, lunches in the sunshine, and not too much Spring cleaning...

Upbeat video ~ Spring is here! And I'm trying to sing with the French lyrics, but I'll have to download onto my iPod and practice, practice, practice! Thanks, Duchess - pleased to make your acquaintance.

Enchanté!
