You can tell i'm getting a bit bored at the mpment, I suppose it's the end of the summer and the dark mornings and early nights. So wht do you get up to at weekends? I seem to shop, organise the house, nip out for a beer or two in the local bar on saturday evening and practice my French at some of the local guys. I'm not sure my language is very good and i don't understand half of what they're saying but we seem to communicate pretty well. Then its backt o the house and the goggle box. I do like the sunday ritual though Late breakfast, lazy lunch and a few glasses of plonk, settle down in front of the fire for the evenings telly with a sunday tea.
I'm always on the look out for new things to read and have quite varied taste. So what are you reading at the moment. I'm reading a very interesting book about the Congo called "Blood River - a journey to Africa's broken heart" by Tim Butcher. It's quite an eye opener and makes you realise why the region is so messed up. Its a very good read and not all history as it tells the story of the author following Stanleys footsteps. Somethinhg a bit more up beat i think next time though.

IJust found this on the blog! In Beauvais on the 20th to the 24th May there is a music festival with a difference, this is a Cello festival, although there are other performers too, this year they are featuring English music, and have some well known performers, go and see. http://www.beauvaistourisme.fr/Actualites/Festival-de-violoncelle-de-Beauvais Meanwhile in Gerberoy on the 7 & 8th May there is a medieval fete, this is to celebrate 1435 and the battle of Gerberoy, unfortunately against the English, but I am sure they will have forgotten all about that by now. They have a full programme including, cavaliers on horseback, archers, games and music as well as medieval food and drink.
