Remembering the 1970’s to celebrate the 1950’s…

Last night we helped Jim celebrate his 60th birthday. Pauline had organised a fantastic buffet and drinks in Barrou.

On the way we dodged the lightning flashes and rain which seemed to be falling all around. We were concerned for the farmers, harvesting in the fields and taking their grain to the silos. As we drove home, well past midnight, the harvesting was still happening. Along the road from Barrou to Chaumussay were clouds of what from a distance seemed like smoke, but was dust.

We even got chance to dance the night away, in true 1970’s style (showing our age), around our handbags! A charming Frenchman even brought a handbag and joined in.

A big thank you to Jim and Pauline for hosting a magnificent party.


Taking a breather.


See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. I’ll let you decide which is which!


Shall we dance?

We can’t wait for the 61st…


  1. We're all of an age aren't we ? I'm planning my 60th for next February...and were all going to see Status Quo on Tuesday at the Carcassonne that really does show how old we are ! It looks as if you had a great time. A good start to your summer.

    1. I'll bet you've aged better than they have!!

      Still the music and their stage presence will be something to look forward to. Hope you have a wonderful time and I expect to read all about it... x

  2. We had a lovely time too! The gentleman who joined us to dance was very brave, as well as charming!!

    Colin says if he'd known there was to be dancing, he'd have brought his man-bag.... 'nuff said!!!
