beached


I've got nothing to blog about at the moment. Nothing. It's not like there isn't stuff going on here right now, there is. To be honest Le Petit Village can be a rather scandalous place and there's usually some liasons dangereuses or petits scandales going down but it's not stuff I can blog about per se no matter how interesting it is (if I ever get around to writing that book, I promise that all of the juicy bits will be in it).


And The Husband and I just had a nice extra long weekend down in Toulon and that was lovely but I didn't want to blog about it because my last post was about the the time we were there before that. But truthfully that's all that I've got for you guys at the moment.


I've discovered that the French Riviera is the perfect place to escape to when life isn't all that sunny. Some major stuff went down in The LPV the past couple of months that has thankfully now finished, but the ghosts of it still haunts us all (everyone is OK, everything is fine... I struggled with blogging about it for cathartic purposes, but The Husband asked me not too and I've respected his wishes... clearly there is a first time for everything).

So my cousin's house in the Côte d'Azur (my holiday home as I like to call it) became the perfect escape for us refugees from The LPV. And now you know that it wasn't only fun and rugby that was pushing us down south but that's all I'm going to say about that.


But please stay tuned. I promise that there's delightful snapshots of Le Petit Village life on the horizon just waiting to be recorded. A bientôt mes amies.

Bisou!

  2. I hate how it happens like that. The very things that you know it would be super therapeutic to blog about are often the very things that you know you shouldn't. At which point I have to resort to journaling and become a bit neglectful of my blog. Glad you stuck around and made it through everything! And at least got a few sunny weekends in the mix!!!

  4. I am glad you have your friends and the Cote D'Azure to escape to when life in LPV gets complicated and stressful. Have a great day. The pictures of the Mediterranean brought a smaile to my face so thanks! Have a great day.

  6. On a few occasions my husband has asked me not to blog about something, and I always feel like my right to free speech has been quashed :) One of these days I'll write a post about freedom of the press! Lovely pictures Sara, take care.

  8. Ugh. I love scandalous gossip. Being self-employed and not having co-workers I LOVE to hear gossip. I don't spread anything I hear, but if you're ever feelin' like you want to get it off your chest, Skype me and I can listen and hold your ish secret way on the other side of the pond and in the middle of a state nobody you know will ever come to : )

  10. That looks like a rather idyllic escape! My parents live near the beach too, but Blackpool is considerably less glamorous ;o)

  15. Goodness, was the water warm enough to swim in? Someone can't be that frileux!! :)

    As for village gossip, I know what you mean. The trouble is that you don't blog anonymously so it's very easy to offend those that get to hear you've been writing about them. I've done it myself thinking no one local read my blog. How wrong I was!

  17. You downplay how glamourous being at your holiday home must be!

  18. Yup, it's hard to hold back sometimes, isn't it!
    I bet my Daughter is petrified she's going to become a character in my blog for the summer!!

  20. I for one, will happily look at gorgeous beach photos while awaiting juicy gossip from LPV. (shivers while sitting in Germany dealing with oh-so-fickle Spring.) :)
