I’m Baaaaaack...

Did you miss me?  Did you?  Did you?  *Someone* just hasn’t been going on holiday, so I’ve been stuck at home all this time...

Anywho, I’ve now arrived in sunny Provence, so I had to have a drink and a little aperitif to celebrate.  I had mine, I wonder what the rest of them were having:


Then Jock appeared with some Pastis, he was positively diving into it, how excessive!  I would never do anything like that...


So we had a discussion all about it afterwards and I told him all about how one ought to behave when one has finally got one’s paws on some booze at the end of a long and tiring day:


On Sunday, we wandered down into the village for father’s day lunch, LT had already consumed one of our amuse bouches by this point, you just can’t get the staff these days...


Then we had our starter – courgette rolls with goat’s cheese, pine nuts and more courgette inside, topped with a sliver of tiger skin tomatoes, and with some local air dried ham on the side:


Next was the main course, huge prawns with stir fried vegetables:


Then, horror of horrors, there was no dessert!  Didn’t LT know that I was on my holidays?!  I was really quite put out about that.

After we had taken the longest walk home ever because *someone* can’t follow directions (um, excuse me, I can follow them fine, it’s just that there wasn’t a road sign where it was meant to be! - LT)  Whatever, after we had finally got home, it was time to lounge around by the pool where I made a new friend, Vincent:


Everyone needs a vole named Vincent for a friend don’t you think?


He’d had a bit of a run in with a nasty beast before we met him, but it was a little hard to understand him, wot with him being French and all, but he seemed to recover and run away in the end, even after Ann nearly stepped on him, twice!


We came back round to our patio so that I could finally get my paws upon something sweet.  They were a bit sticky afterwards, but it was definitely worth it...

Hi Jack,

It looks like you were having a fun holiday. Now about Jock......man, he and "you-know-who" have really been pretty grumpy lately, you should read what they have been writing about me. But oh, they sure do stick up for LuLu & Flora, in their eyes those two troublemakers can't do anything wrong. HA!

So glad you showed Jock how to be polite. Now for the other guy....

Heaps of Hugs

I hope that Jock isn't on the road to ruin with that pastis...

I think it's nice of LT to bring along a chair just for you - I hope you were equally comfortable on the very long drive from home to holiday? She's been making lots of things to 'travel handmade' but I haven't seen hide nor hair of anything for you - she needs to rectify that, pronto! Enjoy the rest of your holiday and if you get your paws on any more of that pudding please feel free to send me some - BC (Biscuit Controller) will never know...

Lovely to catch up with you again Jack. You do crack me up - hope that pudding didn't lay you out for too long!

Hi Jack,

You and Jock look like you are having some interesting times together. All that food and drink! Wow!

I hope you recover quickly so you can have more delicious experiences. And when you do, don't forget to take pictures. I'll do my best not to drool on the keyboard!

hugs,
Sebastian
