After the excitement of Bastille Day life in our corner of Normandy has been quieter this week.
During the cooler early hours of the day I took time out to appreciate the garden and sitting on the patio reading some new books on my Kindle.
At the moment I'm enjoying reading "Growing Old Outrageously: A Memoir of Travel, Food and Friendship" by Hilary Linstead and Elisabeth Davies.
(I know I said I wouldn't ever get a Kindle, but I finally succumbed and now wonder how I managed to get by for so long without an English daily newspaper).
The Senior Partner, in anticipation of his upcoming retirement, second time around, has splashed out on a new "bridge" camera.
I have inherited his cast off Panasonic point and shoot and have been test driving it around and about.
