I spent a week with my wonderful parents, lovely sister (Claire) and gorgeous 7 month old nephew (Ben), in a beautiful house in south west France. It was a very chilled out holiday, although Claire and i managed to fit in some running, lots of swimming (very cold pool) and a little bit of yoga to start the day. We visited food markets, Bergerac, St Emilion (where we had a lovely lunch here and enjoyed some wine tasting) but mainly hung out at the house, being entertained by Ben, preparing nice food and drinking good wine.
Lovely food market
Stopping for refreshments
The house had a few cookery books which we flicked through for inspiration, this being my favourite and I might have to get my own battered copy now...
Home made tortilla
Tarte Noir from the Patisserie
It was so lovely spending quality time with my family and a week wasn't really long enough. But there's always next year...
