oh là là, oh là là: Part 2

Maybe more than four and half hours of sleep would have been a good idea. But I'm blaming that one on Fifty for waking me up at 6:30, and Mr. Aidan for keeping the party going until 2 (I'm totally blaming him).

Saturday morning was all about one thing C O F F E E. And after that, Aidan, Mrs Canadian and I drove off to do the hunting and gathering (BBQ supplies for that evening). And of course we stopped for a little midday apéro because sometimes you have to bite the dog that bit you.

A little lunch back at the gite and then we were off for the weekend's main event... Le Petit Village's First Annual Playstation Tournament hosted by The Parisian. Two of the little kids were playing and two of the big kids (The Husband and Mr Aidan), plus Honey Jr and Brother-in-Law too. A Playstation tournament is big happenings in our little place and everyone was really excited (everyone with a Y chromosome that is). But then some twelve year old boy won and that was that. And Honey Jr pouted. I wish I was making this up but I'm not. He actually pouted. *le pout*

And because us XX people couldn't be bothered, we took the two, two year old XYers and headed off for a tour of the old village. F I A S C O. Those little boys looked at the 900 year old wobbly streets as their own personal rally track and took off at top speed careening around corners, and ups and downs, but somehow avoiding tripping over every deep crack and loosened cobble in their path with us in pursuit and Villagers shouting, "Oh là là! Oh là là!" Because we were all sure that those little two year old legs would tumble, but they didn't.

It was a Le Petit Miracle.

(Or the invisible hands of Medieval Banshee propping them up, 


because you just never know. Do You?)

  1. so, for some reason... I'm still awake over here in Maryland... I read this post and the last related one + your friend's post... looks like you all really had fun! I've been doing all sorts of internet research (logistics, technology, etc.) lately because I'll probably be in France at some point this year... :D My cousin is actually getting married in Lille, so I would be silly not to go!

  2. You always manage to give the village folk something to talk about. What would they do without your escapades?

  7. My son would have enjoyed that tournament! I would have gone for the walk and have been a nervous wreck just knowing those boys would fall. Amazing that they didn't indeed!!!

    Oh la la!

  11. Now if that had been a Nintendo, and I mean of the 8-bit nature, you would have had an extra Y and a double X making a road trip out your way! (I rocked at Paper Boy, Excitebike and Marble Madness!)

  12. That sounds like so much fun! I love when events like that take place in small towns. What does not sound like fun, however, is running after two year olds. Glad you/everyone made it out alive!
