Me & Mine -July

by Clare Mansell

This month’s Me & Mine comes from the Charente region of France where we are spending a couple of weeks, having left our home and dogs in the capable hands of professional housesitters.

The weather has been a bit mixed, but we’ve really enjoyed having some relaxed time as a family and the children have loved the company of other kids their age at the child friendly gites where we are staying. Weirdly we also found ourselves staying next door but one to another blogger who I follow on Twitter… But that’s a whole other story!

So this is what we’ve all been enjoying this month.


Chocolate and almond croissants from the Boulangerie
Sparkling cognac
Updates on our outdoor pizza oven base being built
Being in his 30s for one more month


Having the opportunity to read books!
Not having to do any proper housework
Moules and frites
Big fat juicy French tomatoes
Not having to entertain Alice
Communal BBQs


Having other children to play with all day every day
Pottery and fabric painting
M&S chocolate tea cakes
Prawns on the BBQ
Staying up late


Going swimming every day “kick, kick, kick!”
Having her Daddy around during the week
Not having food stolen by Bella!
Her wicker shopping bag
Her buckle toy

Linking up with…

The Me + Mine Project - Dear Beautiful

Oh lovely snap this month. The kids are growing up way too fast. Sounds like you are having a great time in France. I bet it’s better than the weather back in England though heard it’s shocking this summer. We are having a blast in America as usual but wish I could send some virtually back to the UK for everyone. Make the most of France and enjoy your trip.  #meandmineproject
