Probably the biggest disappointment was realising that there had been some confusion between Ralph and Karen and us – they
thought we were travelling NEXT weekend!
So, embarrassment all round and no way to reschedule it to the following week. ): So, they weren’t able to join us – a major disappointment.
Ann was obviously in a state of shock having been the main organiser. After much consideration, we put it down to don’t-know-what-happened!
Unusually, we nearly missed our flight because of the confusing announcements. However, once on board it was a short flight (one-and-three-quarter hours) and we were at Toulouse Airport. We landed around 4.45. The weather? Dry! and a comfy 20-23 degrees C.
Ralph had rung ahead to adjust the car-hire and after a bit of discussion, we bagged a C4 Picasso. It’s got paddle-shift, sat-nav, air-con and really comfy seats.
After about an hour’s drive we arrived at ‘Manoir St-Jean’ in Moissac, our first accommodation of the holiday. It’s a smallish 3* type hotel.
It’s a nice room – quite large, with everything we need (except a good mobile signal!) We ate in the restaurant and opted for the 38 Franc menu. Ann went for fish, whilst I opted for the pork. The food was superb – typically French – full of flavour and cooked to perfection. We left the restaurant around 10pm.
From a crappy start, it turned out to be a good day.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
