Return to the Small Island........




Well, that put the cat among the pigeons as they say. Look, l mean all that fuss trying to work out who was staying here. We doooo have to keep it professional now don't we?


OK, some of you might have done the 'rumbling' bit so l guess you all want the latest gossip & low down on the place?


Sorry folks all you're going to get are some pretty pics of interesting things & the the only juicy tit bit will be... a big thanks to her Ladyship, his Lordship, the young Lordling & the small cross one [hope you're feeling better?].



The area from Carcassonne to the Pyrenees is one of truly outstanding scenery & history together with a piece & quiet that has long disappeared from our countryside. That's the factual bit.


The area is steeped in history from the persecution of the Cathars to the Black Prince, ancient bastide towns & villages perched atop hills, vineyards, fields of sunflowers, empty roads, wild flower meadows, scenic country walks, l could go on but as l'm now feeling a little tired & in need of a glass of the old Merlot, l will just chuck a few choice pictures in for your perusal & bid you 'Bonsoir' until my brain is in full flow once again & my dammed headache has been drowned!

It sounds wonderful, like you say, nothing like a break - especially there, I would think! Welcome home! (Always a bit flat getting back!)

Love the layout of your blog - how smart is that.
Must get myself a holiday sorted.
Always lagging behind. I think my tail holds me back. Glad the company was up to expectations - but we knew it would be. I hope you havent muddied their pool too much with those boots.
