MAKING THE MOST OF THINGS

It’s raining and rather grey here in Le Grand-Pressigny today.  Cold, too.  But for the previous four days we have had plenty of lovely sunshine.

This picture was taken yesterday.  It was sunny and warm enough to sit outside and have our lunch on the terrace.  For lunch we had some quiche and a slice of roast pork with a bit of salad, fresh bread and a glass of rosé wine.  For dessert we shared two éclairs from the boulangerie – one was coffee and one chocolate and we both had half of each.  In fact most of our lunch came from the shops in the village.

So although it’s raining today and we have spent the afternoon close to our wood burning stove, at least we have a few days’ sunshine under our belt at last.  It was lovely while it lasted and we made the most of it.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed for the rest of our stay.

  1. I carefully avoided those eclairs today...
    we are allowing ourselves on each per week maximum...
    I've never come across eclairs so full!!

    But we'd better not tell the baker!!

  2. I didn't see this rain coming or check the forecast. I should have listened to Tim Ford!

    Your lunch sounds delicious and very nicely served.

    1. Gaynor, we are just so glad to have had any sun at all, after such a long and horrible winter in Derbyshire.

  3. Yes yesterday was not too bad at all but today is rubbish. Not sure how long you are here for but it looks like next weekend it is going to warm up. 13, 14 and 15 April. Enjoy the break Diane

  6. Glad you've had some sun, Jean, and hopefully none of this horrible east wind. We've had quite a lot of sun recently, but it's still so very cold that I'm glad to get back indoors if I go out for anything. I'm afraid your rain comes from the displaced jet stream which is drenching much of southern Europe, while northern Europe shivers.

  7. My fingers are crossed as well. We didn't get much rain up here at all, although it was predicted.
