  1. I thought you might get a few days holiday in the Joy after yesterday’s (removed) post! 😉

  2. Not Green – Since when has it been a crime to write crap posts?  And has anyone told John Waters?

  3. Come on over !
    Weather fine and warm.   The new dog will be even more attaced to you on your retirn.
    If you find your way to South Deux-Sevres, I will buy you a pint (or to be more accurate, a demi)   or even two.

  4. tt – Too many reasons why it’s too late.  For a start, most places will probably be booked, not to mention the ferries.  As for the dog – she has had enough for the moment of being abandoned.  I wouldn’t have the heart to throw her into kennels when she is only here a wet Monday.  You may be a heartless old bollix, but I’m not!

    A Grandad – South Deux-Sevres?  I thought you were in Poitiers?  There again, I don’t know where I got that idea.  Have you got a gite you are going to kindly lend to a broke old pensioner and his missus?

  5. Abandoned? It’s a feckin dog y’auld drama queen. Get it a kennels with a dirty lake and get yerselves booked up.

  6. South Deux-Sevres is 75 km south of Poitiers.   
    Sorry, I do not have a gite, only a small ancient farmhouse.

  7. only a small ancient farmhouse”  That’s no problem.  When can you move out so that we can move in?

  8. It’s never too late to go to France.

    We went at Halloween one year, and it was as pleasant as ever.

    The only problem with a Ryanair equivalent on the high seas is that you might land some distance from your imagined destination, like France (Jersey) or France (Spain) ports.

  9. Hey GD I’m coming to ur part of the world in September -so hope those dark clouds let up for a short while

  10. Ian – They only travel to Cherbourg so they probably don’t have charts for anywhere else.  Anyhow I wouldn’t mind Jersey or even Spain.

    Ashley – Welcome!  So you are coming over here huh?  Normally there are two periods of fine weather a year here – during the Leaving Cert [final school exams] in June, and the first two weeks in September [after the schools have gone back].  The June one was a washout this year so I can’t guarantee anything for September.  Bring a warm coat and wellingtons anyway.

  11. tt – And what about luggage?  Herself requires a fucking lorry to carry all her shit stuff.
