Ms Mac said...

Excellent! I shall get on it soon- it seems quite easy although like you, I imagine I will have some trouble on the foods!

Sarah Mackenzie said...

I'm going to have trouble with cars. I failed my driving test twice and have never gotten around to retaking it, so a car has been a bit superfluous ... but the rest? Food for thought.

Antipodeesse said...

Where in the Vendée did you work? I worked at La Puerta del Sol campsite in St Hilaire de Riez, or maybe St Gilles Croix de Vie, in the summer of 1989 or 1990... How cool it would be if we met and don't even remember!!

Lesley said...

Antipo: I was in the Vendée a full seven years before you which shows how ancient I am (just in case my antiquated taste in music left anyone in doubt). It was a campsite called Le Yol and it was near Les Sables d'Olonne I think. I worked for Canvas Holidays one year and Camping Holidays Abroad the next. Ah, life was so simple then. Get up, pull on a bikini and call it work.

L'Oiseau said...

Ahh you tagged me whilst I'm surreptitiously not blogging and supposedly lurking at the moment... hmmm I will respond in the next week!

Being confined indoors most of the day, just the four of us, is reminding me of the days when my children were wee and most of our weekends ...
