Running a French Holiday Gite in Rural Brittany

Another day, another country, another (different) weather

After a great two week Easter holiday break in our Brittany Gite, we arrived home last night to the usual mountain of post and of course a cat that thought we'd left him for good - so he was definitely pleased to see us.

The first week's weather in France was quite changeable, rain one moment, sunshine the next, but the second week was pretty much wall to wall sunshine.

Every day we sat outside and ate our lunch and evening meal on the patio; most of the time having to wear sunglasses as the sun was so bright!

On the drive home from Brittany up through Normandy and Pas de Calais up to Boulogne we drove through periods of cloud and rain, and today we were woken up by the kids excitedly telling us it was snowing outside (in Bedfordshire where we live).

So in the space of a day we've had sunshine, showers, low cloud and now snow! There was enough snow to make a snowman of course, but it's not lasting unfortunately.

Back to the grind of the M25, work, and an even bigger mountain of emails tomorrow.

Every time I come back from France it leaves me wishing I was a bit closer to retirement so I could leave the work behind ...
