Yes we got here! The cottage is picturesque on the outside and modern inside and the grounds are big enought to explore but not big enough to get lost in (only once- I went for a gentle jog without the deatailed map that the owners had kindly given us and passed the same crossroads several times so the 20 minute jog was rather longer and I did have to walk some of it.)
It’s just what we needed; near to bustling Sarlat and a short drive to the Dordogne and all the beautiful castles in the region. The cottage great retreat to return for a siexta oops that was a slip, the s is too near the x, it’s holiday time so I”ll leave it in! Weve had some delicious leisurely lunches so weve had lazy rustic suppers of French snacks, my favourite, or fired up the charcoal :-(, OHs favourite.
Evening after evening has been whiled away, whiling away time is such luxury these days and even sounds lovely on the tongue, scribbling in my holiday notebook,reading, watching box sets with some superb French wine and talking late into the night. We are both recharging, getting tanned and eerm, plumping up!
This holiday is even sweeter than most because I know it is a brief reprieve. Next month I have to start chemotherapy and help organise my daughters wedding. Guess which Im looking forward to.
Im scribbling away about the scenery here, ideas for a new novel and every now and then adding to my to do list for August cest formidable!
