We have now retired in Rural France and live in a stunning village with a beautiful Château. I would like to share our new life with you. We have 7 grandchildren who live in the UK. Sharing our French life, we have a cat Florence, along with lots of new Wildlife friends....I hope you enjoy my blog, feel free to join in.
We have been on some lovely walks the last few says, the sun has been shining and there has been beautiful blue skies. The temperature has been very warm in the sun, and in the evenings, some really pretty red sunsets.
We had another lovely lunch today at Cafe Portebleue in the beautiful village of Verteuil. Cafe Portebleue serve some lovely lunches/evening meals, and also do a superb Menu de Jour Monday-Friday. Starter, Mains, Dessert or Cheese and a glass of Wine for €12.50, excellent value.

We had a lovely day out in Poitiers, had an early start as I had a Hospital Appt. We stopped and had some breakfast, sat outside in the morning sunshine, and ready for our days shopping ahead and a bit of site seeing..
Autumn is here, the temperature has dropped a tad, and the nights are drawing in, so time for getting the Wood organised for the log burners. I do love the log burners in the Winter, the snug warmth you get and the smell of wood burning makes you curl up with a hot drink............but hey we are not there yet. Only last Saturday, we sat outside and had an apero and a BBQ.
We have had some lovely morning walks in sunshine and rain. The beautiful Autumn colours are surrounding us as we walk.
