Yesterday, here in France was Mothers Day. I was spoilt with both Miss F and Master C coming back home with presents and a meal cooked by them in the evening. Smellies from Lush, an essential oil diffuser and from the dogs chocolate and heavy legs roll on relief. Heavy legs is a condition probably only suffered by the french where your legs feel heavy. There are lotions and potions especially for them at the chemist. I picked up a leaflet once, it seems that life is the cause of them. Shopping, walking, standing still, sitting for too long all could contribute. So the dogs brought me a cure just in case those dog walks get too much.
As Master C was working at l'air du temp restaurant in Najac for the lunch serving and farmer J was cutting hay Miss F and Me plus the dogs met him over at Le Contie, our rented land for a impromptu picnic. It is so peaceful there.
A lovely meal of trio of cold soups followed by duck and chocolate fondant with homemade mint ice cream went down well, unlike the game of cards that i didn't win!
