Thanks everyone. Lunch has been had and much enjoyed. We got our moues frites plus starters and desserts in the Bistro du Port at La Faute-sur-Mer where they just happen to grow a lot of France's mussels on wooden posts (bouchot). Lots of folk in there from local workers in their working gear to OAPs in their Sunday best and others just out for a good lunch. 3 course menu of the day for 14€ with steak, capon, gammon or squid for the main course.
Miserable weather today so we went for a drive down to the point opposite La Rochelle but did not venture out for a walk. We'll go back with the dogs on a sunny day and with wellies.
Pat - why limit yourself to 3 good things?
Busy - sorry you're feeling glum and hope it passes. My UK state pension has taken a hit too but then I've only been claiming it since July as we deferred it for a year. They offer 10% extra if you do and then they ask if you want that as a fixed lump sum or a monthly top up for life so you have to gamble again. OH's ambition is to play golf when he's 100 and I'm not planning to leave him on his own so we've gambled.
Lesley - what are you baking?
