Well, that’s the Lifestyle Support Guru’s shopping sorted for Easter and a few days beyond – 25 litres of wine (a mix of red and white, so I don’t get bored), several litres of beer (so David doesn’t get bored), a bottle of Breton cider (support the local economy), a packet of mixed fruit and nuts (goes towards the 5-a-day) and still have enough left over to go for a nice meal in a French café/bar
and watch the locals taking part in a pony and trap (no, NOT rhyming slang!) parade along the road. Not a policeman in sight, compared with the UK, where they’d have closed off all roads within a 5-mile radius at least 24 hours in advance and warned you that horse manure may be bad for your health.
Oh, and I nearly forgot the purchase of a very nice striped top, very ‘Breton fisherman’ style (but multi-coloured stripes rather than just blue and white), to accompany the one bought a couple of days ago (orange and white instead of blue and white) – so, in fact, thinking about it, I shall look nothing like a Breton fisherman unless I hang a string of mackerel around my neck, but life’s full of variety and surprises (especially if you’re a Breton fisherman!). Bonnes vacances!
