When Auntie Jo and Uncle Rob left in July I took on the task of keeping Uncle Rob up to date on the progress of a new house build nearby which he had seen the start of. To this end I set up a little web site - www.watchafrenchbuild.blogspot.com for those who are curious - and each evening visit the site, take a few photos, and update the blog with the day's progress. Mind you, after only a week of work they all went off on the typical French 4 week August break so work has only just resumed.

Auntie Mary and Uncle Tim came over for the weekend, firstly to go to this nice restaurant in Homps, and then to the Montazels fete lunch which is always a good if rather silly afternoon so I hear. All of this is second hand as I did not go to either. Mum finished up in the fountain with all the kids and silly adults and was there for about half an hour! The others stayed dry!

After that everyone just chilled out - some more than others.

As usual much bottle stuff was consumed.

A few days later my old mate Boudie came over for a swim and brought his mum and dad along too. That was nice because I had not seen them since the party.
Well, better be off as it is another warm day so I need to go and hold the sofa down for a few hours whilst mum and dad go out to lunch. Speak to you all again soon.
