It was so good to spend a few days with daughter Jess. Her visit to us here in Caunes was very short and very sweet. The weather wasn’t perfect, but as she kept assuring me , she did not come to sunbathe. We managed a few rays by the pool, but basically talked non-stop for 3 days.

As a newly appointed teacher, starting her first job in September, she was very excited about it all. We talked about her interview, her classroom, her children, her colleagues, her student friends who have already got jobs lined up as well as those who are still applying. I also heard all about a planned trip to Chester Zoo, with a class she had on her last teaching practice. I’m not sure I’d be as excited as she is about taking 30 x 4 and 5 year olds anywhere.

We ate out the whole time she was here….never mind home cooked meals, it seemed more important not to waste talking time cooking.
|Mark and Jess at La Petite Pepiniere....again....sunshine !|
We visited La Petite Pepiniere, the gorgeous garden/nursery in Caunes, and fitted in 2 vide greniers and a bread festival.

So, a busy and enjoyable time was had by all.
