I won’t pretend the weather is a tad nippy at the moment. Last night was the coldest this winter. Managed a ball shrivelling -4 and we are not yet in December. Today we are told that this year is either the hottest or second hottest year on record.
The final week of our holiday was staying in the Marais, exploring the local waterways and coast.
Still catching up with the gallery of pictures. After the Merlin TV set, we headed on South past Paris, to the Mediterranean and spent a week camping with our good friends John and Carol.
Some sample pictures from the Gallery
Well better late than never. Here is the start of our French holiday to France in 2009. This is a visit to the BBC Merlin set in France, the Pierrefond castle. The pictures in the gallery show the Pierefond castle, and the BBC sets. Enjoy.
We have been on our usual visit to Guernsey for a week, staying at La Grande Mare. John and Carol came with us. The pictures from this holiday have now been posted for viewing.
Celebrated my advancing years at the Auberge Restaurant for Sunday lunch. Cool meal. The rest of the week was divided up between, me cooking (breakfast chef), and John the head chef performing miracles with aquatic creatures.
Good day in Edinburgh, production system configured at client. One new error found while testing. Should have that sorted on Monday, and delivered.
Ended up with time to spare, so have bought a coffee and a chocolate muffin from Cafe Nero. Yes a Cafe Nero has opened in Edinburgh airport, and they stamp your loyalty cards. Costa you have to change.
Now a long wait, was not able to change my flight to the 6.00 pm. The last seat had gone.
I feel a complaint coming on. I am on my way to Edinburgh from Luton. Because of the totally crappy bus service from the mid term car park I choose to walk. Now it is an obstacle course with fences in the way. I had to cross the road and scramble over a fence.
I understand what they are doing, keep the traffic moving. They have it wrong though, sort the entrance to the short term, and eradicate drop offs. Put a decent walk way in from the mid term for our sanity.
