G and C made the long trek from Malmö to Verteillac the day after the Julie Arkell workshop finished and the three of us stayed for one week at Briançon as B&B guests - which meant that I was lucky enough to enjoy one more week of Katie and Mike's beautiful house and garden, their wonderful hospitality, and of course, their absolutely amazing cooking.
We spent the week exploring the local area, relaxing by the pool (well, as much as you can relax with a three year old who is nuts about the swimming pool), picnicking in the garden, and just taking it easy really. It was such a lovely week!
And as an added bonus, we also got to know Katie's lovely sister Susie and
her husband Robin, who were also staying at Briançon that week. C and
Susie got on like a house on fire and Susie spent quite a bit of time
entertaining C, for which G and I are forever grateful! C was rather heartbroken when Susie left Briançon to head home and we are still fielding questions (some two weeks later) as to Susie's whereabouts...
