Arrivé à cette?

Ok, well we actually arrived on Saturday matin and the weather was gorgeous, up until an awful thunderstorm that put the electricity off for 4 hours. Then Sunday morning was cloudy but sunny and warm as I headed off to a vide in Marmande. Missed B as she couldn’t find it and has no mobile, so no way of contacting her. Monday between 8 and 10am we had to wait for the delivery of an armoire from Maison du Monde. Duly arrived about 9.30am and after they refused to take their shoes off to go upstairs, we accepted it being left downstairs. At least they took all the packaging away. Hubby and I then got it upstairs, but only just and taking a small chunk of the landing wall with us. Love it though, it’s just what we needed. Clothes now have a home.Then late Monday morning, met B & L in Duras for tea and coffee at the Duchesses which is community café that opened in October last year, so very pleased to see that it’s still going strong. In the evening had B, L, M & T over for aperitifs, nibbling and chatting till late.  Lots of laughs and discussions re Brexit.So weather wise, this is what we’re faced with. Drizzle, drizzle and more drizzle all week until Saturday which is when we travel back. Lovely. Anyway today the boys are heading to Bordeaux and I’m staying put I think as L will be heading up from Duras to stay with us. L has offered to Bella sit while I go to Bordeaux too but I think I’ll stay and do some painting of shutters.Garden is doing well apart from the 3 Oleanders I bought from Jardin de Beauchamp which have died. Nothing more to report from Petit Coquelicot – over and out, or rather over and in, as it’s drizzling.

  1. Sadly weather has been grotty this month. Same in the Aude.

    Maisons du Monde are great if you cannot find the authentically old; and that’s sometimes impossible as you know!

    I’ve just had a pretty amazing VG find but it will certainly require serious wood treatment

  2. The weather has been terrible here also, thunder storms for days. Love your furniture. We found a gorgeous chair at a Brocante last week but does need a lot of love. Plus a friend of ours gave me a vintage wardrobe, again in need of a lot of love. But will look gorgeous I hope with renovation.

  3. Unfortunately, the weather’s no better on Cote d’Azur! We’ve had a very wet spring and while yesterday was lovely, it’s about to rain again today. I can’t believe it’s almost June.
