Road Trip! Monday May 22

Lagarde is a pleasant little village in the middle of nowhere and to be a little blunt about the place we like to call home at least for a few weeks every year, in the words of the old hit song, "It’s a long way to the shop if you want a Chiko Roll."

When Grahame and Aileen arrive each year, they hire a car for a week or two (as do we) to scratch around provisioning, sorting out odds and ends, and taking their mates for long drives in the country.   

This morning we were in the car before they could say “and perhaps we’ll have lunch at Ikea”, barrelling through the German countryside, although the photo may have been taken in France.  It does look a bit as if the chap in the dashboard GPS is trying desperately to escape rather than pointing to where we we should be going, but our spider senses got us to that giant hardware store in Saarlouis, and our brand new credit cards got the boot filled with all sorts of jobs for the coming days.

We must have been good kids too, because Aileen bought us all an ice-cream on the way home.
