Sorry, seems to be the flavour of the day today, so couldn't resist. grin

Just wanted to say "Hi" and make you all envy with the fact I have just got back from 2 weeks in sunny, sunny France in a lovely house with a fab pool, great food/wine etc and the children (proud mummy moment) were actually total angels in the car there and back (left home at 3.30am reaching house at 6pm, and equally as long back)!

So how is everyone, any gossip etc?

Oh how amazing. We go to Jersey next week for our first unsupported (!) family holiday. DD is nearly 8 months and thank goodness hasnt learnt to crawl. Really hoping that it will be semi relaxing.

Just get lots of wine then it will be relaxing!!

I'm looking forward to the food - i love cheese, foie gras, oh and the patisseries <<dribble>>

CoV welcome home.

WSe stayed here, had a "bread lady" in a little van come down the drive every morning with fresh bread, pain au chocolat, croissants and other patisserie, just popped out in pj's and bought what we needed. House had a barn with a tble tennis table, snooker table, table football, darts etc for when it was raining (or in our case too hot after unch to be in the sun).

In fact I intend to start a thread about it. I am outraged.

Holiday sounds great by the way. The house sounds like the one in Ab Fab.

shock @ ronaldinhio

mother2two Sun 31-Aug-08 20:18:41

I am very envy!

I know someone who loved their holiday so much, that they stayed on! They now live in the Vendee.

I am so jealous. I'm hoping they get fed up so that we can do a house swap grin

Fat chance.

Feeling a tad sad, especially as we have had foul weather today (thunder, lighting and torrential rain) sad

hughjarssss Sun 31-Aug-08 21:46:07

I find it hard to feel sympathy for you comeoveneer after you had that fab holiday. Some of us have been stuck here with that blardy weather all summer grin
