After 2 glorious weeks in England, we flew back to Carcassonne a few days ago. The house in Caunes had hardly noticed we were gone. The automatic watering system I had installed ( ok, we had installed ) worked, the vegetables were not dead, the figs and grapes had developed well and the pool had not turned green. So all was well.
We’re just having a few days by ourselves before the 2 older kids, their spouses, their 4 children, and Mark’s ex wife, and her partner arrive. A few days after that, daughter Jess and her best friend for the last 21 years 7 months will arrive too. So there will be a houseful. Needless to say we are making the most of the peace and quiet.
