In the East Neuk

We are back in Fife, at the Silverdyke Caravan park at Cellardyke. We managed to get a cancellation booking for The Cellar last night and set about celebrating 18 years together. Unfortunately, I took a tumble in the afternoon and failed to get the best from my evening due to everything hurting. It had  however been a gorgeous day and we had a fine walk around Crail and back along the Coastal Path. The evening was balmy too and I limped down to the restaurant and back without a jacket on.

Dinner was absolutely fabulous. There was no start course as all of the courses were perfect. Really, no way to choose between them.

The wine flight helped with my aches and pains and we found a few wines on the list that we hope to pursue when we arrive in Europe.

Today it is raining. Mr L walked Nell and I rested my ankle and did the laundry. Later on we will stroll down to Anstruther for fish and chips. Tomorrow we will be sleeping in England. Forward plans are made all the way to  the Channel and bookings secured wherever needed. We have brought forward the departure date to the 4th September. Details forthcoming at Two Snails.

Energy has been lacking and especially the mental variety. I amContinue readingHot, hot, hot



Having chosen to live in France, I try hard to live French. I really do not want to be that Brit – the one that moans how they can’t get such-and such in France or that some-other from the UK is better… Certainly, in my humble Brit opinion, there is so much here that is better than back in Blighty. Bread and butter for one two things, for instance. However, I do have a beef:Continue readingB-B-B-B-B-Bovril

It’s coming…

We are getting ever closer to our new van. It is supposedly 13 days away. I say “supposedly” because we have been here before and I shall not quickly forget the horrors of last year when Mr Snail had to stay near Paris for several nights after travelling up on the train at 6am and… Continue reading It’s coming…

Well, that was unexpected…

I was confiding that Heidi’s days with us are numbered, we had picked out our new van and that Mr Snail was taking her to Cognac to get a PX price… Things did not go to plan. Heidi was looking gorgeous, considering her age, and we both agreed that the fact that they had asked… Continue reading Well, that was unexpected…
