Before you all start putting up wanted posters or dragging the nearest stream-bed, I've been busy. Despite the heat I've been working away in the garden and thoroughly enjoying myself. On top of that, for the past week I've been spending every spare minute reading – not blogs or nice light novels, but a beautifully-illustrated and totally fascinating 500-page book on local history in this area of southern Manche, lent to us by friends.
The only trouble is that it’s all in French, and rather demanding French at that, and I only have another week to finish it, before I reluctantly have to hand it back. So if you wonder at my delay in reading and commenting, I will be back, and by then probably trying to comment in French after all the practice I’m getting. À bientôt…..
