The christening went well. Lunch was in a chateau hotel, very good, lovely elegant place. Haven't been there before. Lasted a long time though, very French, finished at 5pm, then we went to son's place and children played and adults chatted.
They are all coming here tomorrow for what they call a "picnic", it will be a buffet lunch for God know how many but people are bringing food, sort of "bring and share" lunch. I'm roasting 4 pork fillets and slicing them, we have loads of tomatoes and cucumbers. But it should be just family, not friends.
Pool is swimmable in but water won't be properly clear until the new pump comes. It broke down while we were on hols in England.
Veg garden is like a jungle, tall raspberry canes everywhere and everything is growing like mad, tomatoes 6ft tall branching everywhere as I wasn't there to deal with them. It rained here when we were away, quite heavily I think as water has swept into the garage leaving fine limestone dust behind.
