We invited some french friends to have an english breakfast with us today. We had it at mid -day. Tony cooked it and as ever he included as many things as he could think of. We ate at lunch time so I suppose it was brunch. It was rather wonderful, all the more so because we don't often eat that kind of breakfast. Afterwards we walked in the wood for a while but it was very cold and windy so it was a short while. We decided we would visit a couple of the local Brocantes but to our amazment there suddenly appeared along our very small quiet country lane all sorts of enormous vehicles.Black tar was being sprayed all along the road and in front of the house, we were tarmacked in!!
