celebrating Adoni's birthday with family

Here we are at Adonis’s parents’ beatiful house in hot southeast France.  We arrived yesterday just after 12 noon and have been enjoying the sun by the swimming pool after nearly 3 days of rain!

It’s lovely to have all the Saysells together, as Jakkie, Gabriel and Jeff are here too all the way from Brazil, so we had delicious lunch and tea by the pool, serenated afterwards by Jeff’s guitar and singing, which was really good fun, as he can play and sing really well.

We all had an early night after all the excitement and and early rise too.  Adon and I had breakfast in van and then cycled into the village to buy beer, toothpaste and glue to make Adonis a birthday card, which I had to improvise with crochetted flowers and printing paper, but I think he enjoyed it as well as hisw Kurasawa set of DVDs.

The evening before last at Puylaurens was very tranquil and we walked in the rain through village to buy eggs for omelette and visit the church and take scenic pictures.  Omelette turned out very well and we enjoyed it with a tomato salad and bread, followed by reading and early night.

Tonight we’re going to Serignan to celebrate Adonis’s birthday, so it should be a good evening.

Travelling is my passion. Ever since I was a young girl I've been wanting to see the world. I studied languages to make this dream possible and I love meeting people from different cultures and countries. Having a motorhome since 2010 has made this possible and I hope I'll be able to retire travelling in one.
