Up casual Monday morning to catch the train to Lille - Ian had showered and packed and I casually rose for a shower when he realised he was looking at the arrival time not the departure - train went at 8.55 and it was 7.55 with check in 30 mins before and we are in Kensington - forget the shower or anything - throw everything in suitcase and hope the clothes you pull out are actually what you might wear - and no shoes because thrown in Ian.s suitcase. Wonderful taxi driver got us there three mins late but no drama - not like flying Qantas. And having suitcases with us meant I could pop my shoes and socks on etc. hopefully the hotel will have my expensive hairbrush for me on return!
So finally relax and on the tgv to Avignon - picked up the hire car and off to Menerbes
Like coming home to Le Jujubier - this is our third time - such a beautiful town
Looking out the window of our bedroom
Stitching in Provence - it is my aim to make three little books while I am here - this is my stitchy stitchy one but l left my gimp at home and while I bought some at ally pally I don't think it is as nice so that part may have to wait
Then we visited Sur le Sorgue after a decent sleep in - trauma remember - and wandered around - I bought some French linen
Lovely restaurant garden but no one around
Back at the end of the day
