We were up and out early yesterday as it was a national holiday celebrating May Day. There was a large Vide Grenier at Villefranche de Rouergue. We drove along in blinding sunshine, the clarity of light was superb. Occasionally, when the light is right, you can see the Pyrenees in the distance and yesterday was one of those wonderful days. It really lifts your heart to see those huge snow clad mountains dominating the horizon, especially when we have only seen them 3 times in 8 years. As we dropped down into Villefranche de Rouergue we were slowly submerged into the mist. When we arrived at the Vide Grenier, it was very murky and like a different world to the one we had just descended from. However, a little later the mist began to clear and as it did, I took this photograph, showing what a beautiful day it was becoming.
The day then got even better because we met up with M, my adorable friend and her gorgeous family and sat in the sunshine drinking strong coffee and stronger beers! What more could we ask for.
We then returned home. The competition that I was running ended yesterday and I needed to do the draw to see who would win the 10 antique invoices. Now that was not too hard as only one person had entered my competition. I don't know if you would know that, so maybe I should have dressed it up a bit and said that I spent hours cutting up the names to put into a hat. That I asked the local Mayor to draw the winner and due to the number of entrants, the local paper had took and interest and were running a story on it....... But no, just one very kind person had entered and that very kind person will have the invoices winging there way to her today.
So thank you Diane - these are now yours!
