Allez les verts!

Ireland : Grand Slam Rugby winners!

What a great weekend for the Irish and just what the country needed : a positive boost in these gloomy days...

It is absolutley the worst time to be away from Ireland and the only time we feel remotely homesick - missing the apr├Ęs match celebrations! Even worse, there is no post match analysis and reports on the telly where we could have relived every stressful moment of that match.

Merci Steven Jones!

But , we can't complain here as the mercury frequently hits the mid 20s and we spend weekend pic nicing , cycling through the vineyards near our house , paddling in the med and cranking up the barbeque for the first grillades of the season.

This weekend we had a group of Americans, all the way from New York for our Red Beret Wine tour. Saturday was a perfect day for a wine tour and we visited three very different vineyards : a small french run family establishment, an English owned Domaine for lunch and a gorgeous chateau over looking the med.
The group were great fun and we all swapped addresses at the end of the day! Coming home to watch Ireland win the Grand Slam, was the icing on the cake of a perfect day. Ah, la belle vie en france!
